Located and replaced intermittent door reed switch on house burglar alarm, replaced new logic chip in bell box and reprogrammed alarm.

Some say that he eats habanero chilli peppers dipped in oil of capsaicin for extra bite and that his pyjamas are made from Nomex. All we know is, he's called Ad the Bad

I spent an exciting weekend clearing a space in the garage for my pending new arrival. It took all weekend but I can now fit 2 motorbikes, a caravan, a 4x4 and all my other junk in. I really need to dump a lot of stuff, maybe another day.

Took the cage in to get it's little problem looked at. Often no speedo, now coupled with cutting out at low speed, usually when just turning in to a junction. Starts again immediately, but lose the power steering when it does it - this has made for one or two "interesting" moments! Now have to be ready to catch it, ignition off and quickly restart; loads of fun! Diagnostics show that it's missing speedo and odo info, sounds like it's all connected. Can we just go back to carbs and cables please?!!

Booked in for proper investigation next Weds, hope it doesn't get too pricey, as it'll eat into July's Euro tour money  :'(

Hi Nick,

On some cars the fast idle( when slowing down) relies on the speedo, so if the speedo doesn't work the car will cut out at low speeds ( less than 5 mph) .

Yep, cheers Mark, that's what the garage are saying, so hopefully no worse than a change of speedo sensor might do the trick. We'll see after they've had a better look.

Started rebuilding her!


Began with:



And after about 7 hours of associated jiggery, skinned knuckles, and the rest:





Getting her roadworthy ASAP, will get the wheels powdercoated black to match the bike, and then I'm going to ride her whilst I collect the parts I need to fit a ZZR1400 front end and ZX10R braced rear :)

Of course, I am Berkshire's answer to Captain Scarlet and I ride an FJ (possibly the most indestructible bike ever made)..... Oh yeah and I have more lives than a whole cattery. I only got a little bit worried when my knee was brushing the crash barrier!

Got dragged around a superstore by my wife and 2 giggly teenage girls looking for carnival outfits.
I disappeared to the tool section while they did their giggling and grabbed a few bargains.
Then it was off to Aldi to buy up all their black spray paint for €2.99 a spray can  ;)
Gonna rustle up some chilli con carne and settle down with a bottle of Irish cream and a movie or two  :)
