Tried that, didn't work either. I suspect locktight or retainer compound.
I might have sold the Across. The guy will come Monday.
Interestingly, I found out the Across shares front brake caliper with the zzr250. They're also left-right interchangeable in their design. Those clever cheapskates. Unlike Honda who probably wouldn't use a washer on 2 different bikes, or if they did, they'd list different part numbers...
Started pulling down my original engine so I can split the cases and have them machined to take the 350 barrel...
still working on the shed- put some 4 metre long crossbars in today and straightend some uprights.have put c section on its side every 90cm,s up the sides.now if only i could buy some razor wire.
found my old dial gauge buried in a box marked special tools (also found the very expensive lifter puller tool that I used once,that purchase still bums me out as it wasnt the lifters in the end meh!)
So thought id check the runout/hop on my bikes wheels...wasn't to bad less than a mm all the way around...then tuned the spokes, a few dull sounding ones so it does pay to check em now and again....
Have you tried tightening the nut/bolt? this will brake the contact with any corrosion or compound on the thread..also dont use extension bars on rattle guns or braker bars they twist and dampen the torque....front wheel drive cars are a pain because of all the crap between you and the bolt.....
Zeal springs and FZR spacers ready to go ... might take a little persuasion to get them all in
Looks like fairings off to jack up the bastard to extend the forks further ... probably needs a scrub under the covers anyway
@GreyImport are they Zeal fork tube's ?
The thread's look fine like M34 X 1mm pitch ?
Nah mate .. they are the original FZRs ... must be the angle of the photo
Zeal left , Fizz on the right
Wait til you get a go on my ZXR... though I am a bit lighter, still way above standard preload settings.
You won't want to go back, and might even start assembling your ZXR
Yea the Fizzer was weird to ride since me being lighter ... annoying, as I was sliding all over the seat when before my fat arse was planted ..... For Texas Im trying to change a few little things to make it better and maybe a little 'different' like the forks , which I will also raise up the triple tree , Ive set the pre on the rear way softer too and Ill put a few PSI less in the tyres also ..... I also put the muffler from the pink lady on as its unmolested , unlike mine ... its so much quieter ... so Ill think Im on a different bike out on the open road
Had to use a extension bar, got to poke through a panel hope. Used a big bar, foot on brake but the clutch would slip. Someone else's probably, now. They collecting tomorrow. And yes, I tried both direction, and hammering the bolt tho shock any corrosion.
On another note, went dirt biking today. Unfortunately, one mate might have a broken wrist.
EWWW, that's just stubborn - perhaps give it a spurt of heat with a small flame torch
Finally got all the projects out of the way to work on zxr - my bike, supposed to ride next week on the trip! When you take so long getting back to it, you start wondering what goes where, what are these parts and do they belong to this bike, and why are there so many screws left over? After a bit, I had most things sorted, leave the fairings off the sides to wash the oil off it. But we'll put the tank on and run it to double check it's running right. Not starting, thought about it at full throttle with no choke. Have look about, and noe hydralocked. It had been so long that my clean, resealed (thanks, Blair) carbies now have to be pulled out and cleaned... No roadworthy and rego this weekend. :'-(
Sourced 2 replacement headlight globes for the ZXR, changed the rear pads, and washed all the roadworks crap off the bike, and sprayed some lube on the chain.
Enquired about dyno runs but the bloke is flat out and has no time... @Frankster we'll have to go another time... earliest available is june, I'm thinking around the end of october.
Still need to adjust the steering head bearing but might outsource that one to the kawasaki place here.
...... and rode around the streets of Tamworth making alot of noise
You heard me? I did put the baffle back in this morning
Well if you were riding like it was the opening lap of MotoGP then I assumed it was you
If you are talking about your place... I haven't been past today, must have been someone else.
