Refitted the forks having been sent to HMRacing for some K-Tech bits and bobs to be installed, out for a test today...
Someone sent me a postcard picture of the earth. On the back it said, "Wish you were here."

Fitted an undertray to Me Julie.


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

Not today, or yesterday, but recently.

Thought the radiator looked a bit of a mess;

Today I rode with another Fazer rider, who mistook my friendliness for 'LETS RACE'


Attaching a helmet cam tomorrow. :-)

I removed the top fairing and radiator ends and repaired the damage done by the previous owner, a bit of plastex, primer, paint and laquer and they are now looking like new again.

Plus I removed the radiator/rad cover and fan and repainted them too as they were looking a bit scruffy.

Its taken all day to do but well worth the effort, should have taken some before and after pics.
sigs are shit

Put mine together yesterday.  Had a stupid streetfighter headlamp when I got it, but I've fibreglassed up the broken faring and put it all back to standard.  Looks battered but still 100x better than it was.
Before:

Now:

Just got the remove the silly red bits.  The genius who painted those bits managed to paint the fuel filler shut and get paint in the lock too.

Sorry but I didn't ride it but I did get it out, wash it, clean the chain and lube it. Tomorrow I might polish it.

Lawrence are you interested in selling that "stupid streetfighter" headlamp?   :)

Yes, got all the bits except two bolts that I re-used in fitting the faring.  I've also got the bar end mirrors if you're interested  ;)
PM me if you're interested.

Today I am picking it up from the bike hospital. . . . . .


Hopefully I won't have to take the bloody thing in for a while.
