Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Spent way to much money past few weeks.
Two rads 216quid
Drys and wets 380quid
X2 42t rear sprockets 60quid
X2 did chains 100quid
X2 sets of yss shockers i have two hard soft spring sets these two are hard springs 270quid
X2 armstrong front disc, 200quid
Spare grips x4 sets 20quid
Carb rubbers x2 sets 30quid

Plus loads of other bits. My wet bike wont be far of done next week, will just need exhaust making and body work painted. And few little bits, forks getting rebuilt this weekend, and tyres fitted to both sets of wheels. My dry bike, i had to send forks for chroming, about 6 weeks till get them back, and not starting this till done the road cb500 which may be selling to fund these, and a gn125 im building for a bloke, but will have all parts to get cracked on with mine. 3rd bike picked up other week thats going to be a 3rd bike, but this will be lighter and quicker, as going todo a bit of tuning,has head gasket gone, and shocked to find out put bearing broken up.

Once get bike on wheels and can get out said will take some pictures

Interesting front disc. Tell us more. Floating? Is the clip on the filter to re-inforce it or just to make it easier to remove ?

Clip on the filter has wire round it, then to another part of engine to stop it from coming off, do same with sump bolt, but just drill that and rear wheel nut.

It's looking very impressive. Did it start life as the 'S' model? The angle of the front forks looks different to my naked model.

I like the black and silver engine.

Of course. Race prep. I'm surprised that that needs to be done to the filter. Have you ever had one come loose if it had been put on correctly ?

Hi,

Not done much at all, wet bike done nwt with at all, just removed rearset to check on my bike. Built all my dry bike up, brought new cables tank rubbers, and exhaust studs from honda other week. This bike just needs fork rebuilding, exhaust body work and done, just about. That got taken for x2 exhaust making other day, day i want to forget lol, stuck on a1 and m11 which made use like 4-5 hours behind. So have this bike few weeks, and get cracked on with them. I have also started to make some adjusterable rear sets, done the brake side which is hardest one todo. 

Why mine away, i have got a mates race bike in, what he has just built up. Wants me todo him a cut down loom and save as much weight as i can from it,  already saved just under 1kg from it in 20mins, and it was already built as a race bike lol.

Will get some pictures up when get bikes done.
