And my Abarth stickers add an extra 50bhp, that's not even factoring in gold wheels!

Changed both throttle cables on the 1000 today after noticing this last week when checking it to find out why the throttle was not very smooth.

The right hand side top of my swing arm has has some marks/scuffs on it from the time i purchased that old girl (Fours years ago) so time to do something about it.


While I'm in that area off with the carbon look rear hugger (Power Bronze) and cut it down to make a carbon chain guard (Really pleased with it) and spray the top of the swing arm after striping off the rear peg hangers and rear master cylinder, then masking up and sanding down before spraying two coats etching primer, 2 coats grey undercoat, two coats of silver and two coats of clear lacquer. 
Again I am really chuffed with the finished job looks good, the paint I used is a really good match for the swingarm. I also gave the rear brake line loop and anchor point a touch of the blues.
Halfords paint is very good I am impressed with it, sprays nice and clean without spits and splatters and covers very well.


After all my work this morning headed off to Loomies in Hants probably 250 bikes there, ended up having a chat with a guy called Paul he had a 2 year old Buser, nice bloke, even if he does ride a suzuki  (Notice the lower case 's') not like a Fazer  :lol

This is the paint I used on my swingarm it's a good match
I will do the chain guard side on Tuesday as it has a mark on it towards the rear.
I just noticed I have a preference for the left hand as my chicken strips are smaller on that side, I need some practice with my right hand, no you dirty buggers not that  :rolleyes , I'm evenly matched on that front :lol

Yesterday rode in company with about 100 other bikes on the annual Easter Egg Ride from Streetbike to Birmingham Childrens Hospital & Ronald Macdonald House (adjacent to hospital where relatives of sick children can stay).As usual the run was organised & marshalled by Bridgnorth Bikers & the Blood Bikers for this region.
A very hot day & heartwarming to see some of the children wheeled out by the nursing staff to watch us arrive(noisily of course!). Never seen so many Easter Eggs! Took friend pillion on the Fazer as its more comfortable for her than the Tracer :lol

Went out for a run with a couple of mates, taking in Hemsley and then on to Scarborough. Myself and Paul on the Gixxer both filled up at the same time when we set off, after 122 miles we stopped to fill up. I got 13. 2 litres in and he managed to squeeze in 8.72 litres, couldn't believe how economical on petrol the Gixxer is.

As mentioned in another thread, finally got around to cleaning up the brake calipers and then took it out for a few miles to make sure everything worked ok (which it did!)

Collector box on my 600 has been blowing for a few weeks now , ive welded it up many times so nows the time to dig out the low milage downpipes I bought from a fellow foccer a few years ago and repaint them , wire brushed and sanded smooth and painted with halfords VHT.....they have come out a bit grey and not black as it says on the tin...look OK though......hung up in the garage to dry so all I have to do now is take the old ones off and fit new........cant see any problems there   ;)

Washed all the schmoo off the bike that it got on it yesterday. Then lubed up all the pegs and side stand as they were starting to get a bit crunchy.

New pads ordered for to fit later in the week :)

Cracking day out!

Monday, I realised the back brake wasn’t going to get through the imminent MOT. In fact, I was surprised it passed last year, So I dismantled it, cleaned the corrosion out of the grooves and replaced the seals.
It was a bastard of a job to get the pistons back in as the dust seal kept trying to roll over and jam.





Perhaps a suitable thickness washer would have allowed the pads to rest on the other side of the securing pins rather than in the deep trench they’d ground themselves, but I’d already gone to the expense of buying new ones.


Today, MOT day, I made the mistake of washing the bike before heading off to the test. The bike hates this and runs on 2 or 3 cylinders for the next 30 miles… at one point I wasn’t even sure it would get there.
Anyway, it scraped a pass: noisy exhaust, chain needs replacing and steering head bearings are slightly loose… poor show, but I’ve only had time to ride it rather than maintain it over the past year. Hopefully I’ll get the two important advisories attended to this weekend.

Fitted a HP steering damper... Had to get a new torque wrench with low settings, 5nm lowest for one bolt!
Instructions for fitting had to be read a zillion times  :rollin
Why do they insist on gold parts  :'( 


Edit** just noticed the left securing point for the damper is fitted wrong.... Spacer and O ring should be below the gold part  :lol

Got it from eBay, was quick delivery and it meant I did not have to go into town!
It's a Bergen, cheap enough and certified. It did not make a mess of the rubber O rings so I'm happy  :lol
