    At work again today fixing things on my ZXR again. Charge rate was down so cleaned, sanded and insulated the batt terminals. Back to normal, but need to relocate reg/rec and shorten all the leads.

    Had the panels off to find an oil weep, it was the rubber block with the stator leads from the cover. Cleaned up and applied some silicone to stop the weep. Top spark plug seals will need doing at next service as they are also slightly weeping, the ninja 300 coils are doing OK at holding the oil in.

    The Dunlop alpha 14's I ordered hadn't arrived so will have to do them during the week.

    Last thing to do will be removing the Ventura rack as the track doesn't allow them, but I have junk to cart with me to the track so it will have to come off there.

    Megazip care package should arrive this week as well.

    I sold a bike last night and he unsold it this morning - wasn't happy with it and wanted a refund, fortunately I hadn't spent all the money yet.

    So I decided to put the zx2r back together after checking valve clearances (OK) and timing chain (not OK, seems too worn and the tensioner is questionable - might make a manual tensioner). But the cam cover was grotty, so I cleaned it a bit:

    Now the rest of the bike looks grotty. Put the carbs and air box and left it. Need to sell a bike, so red Across is in line for carby cleaning...

    Put all the fairings back onto the Across today.. all fitted up nicely. Took some more pics and put it up for sale on FB..
    12 enquiries within 15 minutes and sold pending payment in 30 minutes.. lol
    I just wanted it gone so I was prepared to lose some money but in the end I might just break even... maybe.

    Rode down to Goulburn for a track day at wakefield park. Long haul there and back, left at 5am. It was damn cold before the sun rose and then heated up quickly.

    Managed to get Dunlop Alpha 14's in stock and fitted yesterday after work. They have superceded the Alpha 13, but I can't find them on the Dunlop site. In any case, they perform great and work better with more heat in them. I dialled them in to 26 PSI hot (without tyre warmers) and had my best session of the day, really got into the groove and figured out the lines.

    My leathers were in storage so I borrowed a set, just happened to be a brand new dainese 2 piece in about my size... I got both knees down :D but forgot there was no left knee slider... oops...

    First couple of sessions and the very last one were a bit meh, just learning the lines to take and getting some heat into the tyres at first, and then trying not to die of dehydration later. Packed up and went home at about 2:30pm with two sessions left.

    The ZXR didn't blow up and the aftermarket ignition does actually have a rev limit. But it does have slightly loose steering head bearings, and I will need new rear caliper slide pins plus a disc.

    I could get used to this track riding thing :Drool:

    There was a line from a movie that went something like "Build it and they will come" :)

    Not just councils, regulations and whingers making things difficult and expensive. So they want them further away from people, meaning everyone has to travel further...

    Warwick isn't too far from you, right? It's nearly 10hours from me, 7 hours to Lakeside, the closest full track.
