 One of the things I had to do after I bought this house was dig the garage out.  Water was coming in through the brickwork.  It was foccin horrible inside.  So dug it out (almost killed me) and got it tanked, put a drain in and filled it back in.

your just bl**dy teasing me now ...... :'( .....super clean fazer,abba skylift and what looks like a very nice garage...........think of me over the next few weeks grovelling about on a cold garage floor   :\ :\

I think the camera flatters both the bike and my garage.  The garage is a good size and was built along with the house round about 1932.  It’s cold and damp in there, though dry if you know what I mean.


The Skylight so far has just been used for routine maintenance.  It’s great to be able to service brakes and stuff without having to get down on yer knees. 



Hope you get those studs sorted red98.














iam sure i`ll be ok with the studs VNA , i`ve bought 8 sets but think i`ll just replace the 2 broken studs but replace all 8 nuts with the domed ones which should help in the future  :thumbup ....


i do like those abba lifts ,but owning 5 bikes at the moment it makes sense for me to have a table , parhaps a present to myself in the new year  ;)

I put some extra joists in at the rear and floored the rear third of the garage loft.


This garage was pretty focced when I got my hands on it including the door.  I do wish I had of got a roller door rather than an up and over.  That way I could have made even more use of the roof space.

Yeah it was murder.  The only way to do it was to dig it by hand.  The handiest tool turned out to be the micro shovel.  But yeah, I think I bought two tonnes of peas, chucked them in once the drain was in and the tanking on, then for some mad reason I raddled about 4 tonnes of earth.  Was glad once it was all done.  The garage is reasonably dry now.  It’s not 100% perfect as there is no damp core in the concrete base – but hey it’s pretty decent overall. 



I wish it was still this tidy!

 It’s a good bit of kit, but like anything there are pros and cons.  I hate getting it on and back off the rig – it’s a bit of a balancing act – though dead easy if you have somebody to hold the bike.  You can’t service the Gen1 EXUP whilst it’s on the stand.  But other than it’s pretty good, and it’s great not to be on my knees.  I haven’t had the swing arm out yet on the stand, though maybe I’ll try that this winter – there’s a separate fitting kit that lifts the bike utilising the foot peg mounts to get the swing arm out (as the standard fitting kit lifts on the swing arm pivot.

cheers Mr C . no not working in a lean to, the sheet you can see in the back ground is just blocking the light to take the picture, iam lucky to have my own garage just for bikes and cars  ,NO HOUSEHOLD RUBBISH ALOUD .   :thumbup




got a bit more done yesterday,trimmed all the studs and refitted the downpipes,this part of my winter maintence is now complete ,i do need to polish up the downpipes and see if i can clean some of that crap from the front  of the engine block , think i`ll add "fit fender extender" to my list  ;) ....


got a bit of time spare today so plan to refit the rad,fill with coolant and see if i can find the leak....i am expecting a "parcel of goodness" today though which could very easily distract me..... :rolleyes

Nice job Mr.Red. :thumbup  The domed nuts is certainly a good idea. Just taken mine off for a re- copperslip, and all came off sweet as a nut. I didn't cut the studs down, just used stainless nuts with domed nuts to cover the exposed section of thread. Has the same effect though.

beautifull day here in south bucks even the sun came out  :) .....back in the garage this morning,took the downpipes off and refitted the rad,connected all pipes and filled the system,started the old girl up with no exhaust so i could clearly see where the leaks coming from and...........




THE OLD GIRL SOUNDS FANTASTIC WITH NO EXHAUST    :lol :lol :lol






as UNFAZED has already predicted its coming from the water/oil pump and draining out through a sleeved hole in the sump,ive drained the coolant and oil in readyness to whip the pump out and inspect the seals , stopping for lunch whilst everything drains...




pleased with my progress this morning but my "parcel of goodness" has arrived.......things might just slow up a bit now    ;) ......see btm piccie   :D :D :D :D

got the clutch plates out last night but with no wheels on the bike and without the proper tool i cant undo the clutch basket nut,so iam going to clean up the backend, grease the suspension linkage and refit the rear wheel so i can put the bike in gear lock the rear wheel and undo the nut.....sounds like a plan to me.......

Planned? General tidy up of the Thou, fitting a 4 deg advancer, oil & filter change, valve clearance check (75K miles!) and carb balance. No doubt come across other stuff to do.
