Hey there, I was just wondering how this battery lasted?

Just wanted to put this out there for anyone else wanting a new battery....
My one finally died (been on the bike for about 6/7 years so not done bad)
So i looked online and found Tanya batteries, and ordered a new YT14B-BS thursday evening and it was delivered friday lunchtime
Excellent service and cheaper than Halfords who couldnt deliver until next week.

Are they routed correctly ?
Does the throttle feel free on the bars ?

Guess i must be lucky then as this one fitted nice and snuggly and no leaks at all  :lol

still got to balance the carbs but bit too hot to be stuck in the garage at the moment

Running well though

Did mine and once all back together and primed it started up traight away  :lol

The kit i bought had new float needle valves which meant i had to reset the float heights
Going by the manual i turned them upside down and got a measurement of 12.5-13.5mm from carb body to top of float
Been using it the last two days and is alot better
Could do with checking the carbs for balancing but will prob do that the weekend

Well the old girl is 19yrs old and due its yearly service (by me)
So i thought i would get a carb rebuild kit including diaphragms and give the carbs a thorough clean up
New oil and filter and spark plugs and fuel filter

Well i had a few spare hours today so decided to check them anyway
Removed the seat tank and sidepanels
Drained coolant and removed radiator and thermostat housing
Removed AIS system then coils and plug leads
Removed rocker cover and all clearances are well within spec  :lol  happy days

Put it all back together and refilled coolant

Next job is to check and balance the carbs, possibly sunday

Flew through the mot this morning so back using it for work
There is no signs or noises from the head so am going to leave the valve clearances until it is laid up in the wet season :D

Well my old 2003 fazer 1000 has just crept over 24500 miles so i suppose i will have to check the valve clearances very soon (not bad for an old girl )

Anything you guys/girls can suggest i get before i start ?

Once i have done them i will have to re balance the carbs i presume ?

Today, I have listened to a symphony.
Called Black Widow, its in several movements, from the introduction through various pieces, i.e. 4,000 & 6,000. I think the composer is Yamaha. The best bit (I think) was the overrun, followed by the give it the berries.  :lol :lol
