I think he means the part that slides inside the the fork leg (shiny bit)


A little trick I learnt for rust is to rub them with a ball of tin foil , the foil is softer than the chrome but harder than the rust , thus it removes the rust  :)


ok thats a new one -- so gonna have to try this

and of course there is that bolt by the rad - my guess would be it just bolts to the rads side cover mounts - might need a spacer in there aswell but i wouldnt use a threaded spacer if it does - just drill the threads out from any left over threaded spacers and use them with washers in place (araldite may be your friend on this to hold washers in place)


<<<backyard engineering degree is in the post

if these are not available anymore you might be able to fashion up some brackets using what is available from diy stores and ebay
just google the names of stuff and you will find them (you will have to measure stuff though)


fig 4+3 shows what would be called a munsen ring - readily available, even at screwfix


fig 2 is just a munsen ring backplate which are usually flat
------- because of the spacing here i would just make up the plate myself with alloy flat bar then drill a central hole to short bolt a threaded spacer to create this piece then use a washer between the fairing and threaded spacer to stop it breaking through


fig 1 - this is where you are going to have to get really creative with a piece of alloy flat bar and a vice to start bending it (impossible to guess from a drawing)


there are rubber lined munsen rings out there but its on you to find them


hope this gives you a backup if nothing else is available

im sure if you walked in with 1525-1650 in cold hard cash and said that is the best you can do (dont do a 00 number) the sight of the cash will twist his arm - i say dont do a 00 number because it is a physiological thing that a 00 number you can get a bit more a 25 shows you are trying - hope that makes sense

how black is your exhaust tip ??????
shut garage door and start her up if you can smell it and your eyes are watering its a bit rich
if you collapse and die without noticing a petrol smell then it is fine but you stayed in the garage too long
--WARNING -- i do not advise collapsing and dying


you would be surprised how often we have figured one of our classic cars is rich by simply standing at the back of it
i so wish i was joking but i dont want to live in a nursing home so i will happily shorten it by sniffing exhausts :rolleyes

5mm should do the job
as the mrs says its not the size that matters - its how good a job it does


That's not what she said to me  :eek
nope i saw the video - wasnt it 'its not the size that matters but at least learn to use it'  :lol :rollin

that looks exceptionally clean so i think the price is about right if its coming from a dealer
by any chance is that at j b motorcycles

standard 10 amp
i blew mine when i took the blown sidelight bulb out and the contacts slipped and touched (yep ignition on like an idiot)

yep its a condensation relief hole - i thought the same thing at first as it was blowing like mad - but that was because the exhaust was f##ked

That's an interesting read.  It makes me think that perhaps I should ditch the air wratchet (not impact driver) when rebuilding and stick to hand tools.


best thing i have read in ages - when dismantling i tend to use a buzz gun for most stuff as it is faster but when reassembling i might use a buzz to get things 95% done  (cam covers mainly) then i switch to hand tools just so i can feel everythings tightness then pull out the trusty torque wrench

thats the thing i read the earlier posts and was looking behind the triangular side panels and couldnt see a thing
then remembered i had replaced that once in the past so thought it would be best to update the post

nice trick with the engine oil hopefully it will loosen off a ring if its stuck
as they all shot up it kind of points more at the rings than the valves which is where i would have instantly thought
might be concerned about a large amount of wd40 getting through the ring gaps and mixing with the oil
but im guessing it hasnt had an oil change in a while anyway so no problem there really

Yes moving it up covers the reflector, I do actually have one fitted but it is not shown in the picture it is one of these  https://www.mandp.co.uk/reflector-30x84mm-rectangular-bolt-on.html and sits tight up against the bottom of the plate in the middle and is held in place whit a short bracket. Its bolted to the bracket with its own inbuilt bolt and one hole in the mudguard behind the plate.
when I moved up the plate I then cut off the bottom of the guard flush with the plate I used the same holes in the guard to mount the plate and brought a new plate and drilled new holes in the correct place to match       
could even just use the oem one under the plate - wonder if my original is still in my parts bin

ok it was just a slightly misleading post earlier on
the fuse is actually under the seat  in the rear left hand side panel just follow the main wiring loom it might be tucked underneath it
not under the side panel you would first think of

as your going in there then just wait and check everything
standard jets are 115 across the board
if its over fueling then my first guess would be float heights which is enough to check with a piece of pipe and a small ruler
i think is about 4.5mm above carb bowl lip (pre 2000) and 3.5mm (2000 onwards)


get yourself some m4 10mm (i think) full thread cap screws you will want 16 of them and you can replace the shitty screws that hold the bowls to the carbs - for a couple of quid its better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them and it makes life so much easier in the future

if the hardest thing on a c90 is removing old gasket then they must be real easy elsewhere
who would have thought a centrifugal clutch would cause that to happen

holy crap i forgot about them little brackets i could use for the indicators then i only need to fill the holes


yes there is the reflector bollocks but them little stick on ones will do for the half hour it takes to do an mot
been using them on the chops for years and take them off straight after
on one of the bikes i had a legal plate with a reflector that only ever went on for mot's then replaced with the black one as i left
(once i just showed him it and he passed it lol)

ok so this controversial thread rears its ugly head again but on a positive note
my gran (bless her) handed me cash on the deal that i only used it on something for my garage and to enhance my side business
deal i thought so a new set of sockets and a CARBTUNE later i had some work ahead of me
first test came with all kinds of trouble and i knew i had big problems
https://youtu.be/COCTPbbPHeE
after some work i found the problem and someone either cocked up earlier in its life or the fazer has a self moving spring

whatever balancing tool you have or are going to get, first buy some extra long screwdrivers it will make your life so much easier - mine just arrived today so i will do it again at some point as i will have better ability to adjust but things are much better now
- this is definatly a worthwile job doing because things are so much better now

i did pretty much the same as fazersharp after seeing his picture
the only difference is i took a jigsaw to my numberplate and trimmed it down a little so i could lift it even higher (could buy a smaller one but wanted legal letter size)
i trimmed the plate so at some point i can put some smaller led indicators on, i just need to find out which adaptors i need or figure a way to make some
