    Dropped my frame down at the blaster this morning... well midday. Expecting it to be ready later in the week which is fine as I need to do a mercy run to Moree on Wednesday / Thursday to fix a Solar Pump installation.. he rings me at 3pm to come and get it.. all done thank you very much.
    So I have hung it up on 2 straps from the garage roof... and given it a reasonable coat of Etch Primer.. I will turn it up the other way in the morning... just to make sure I didnt miss anywhere.
    I also managed to source another puller and the crank is now out of the cases.. This weekend will the stripping the paint off them and getting them ready to go off for machining to take the 350 barrel
    Pics tomorrow..

    Ok, maybe 1 or 2 today

    Got the new 15w oil and zeal springs loaded up and the seal doctor did its thing .... damn those springs and spacers were bloody hard to compress to get the caps on , even with no weight on the forks and fully extended .

    Just rolling and braking in the driveway and they feel extremely stiff :D

    Ill drop the front end a few mm then a road test maybe t/m

    Stiff as in a good stiff like a stiffy which makes you grin? :D :D :D

    You could get some basic measurements on sag to see where you're at -

    A local mob.. Outer West Sandblasting in Penrith... and yes.. he does a great job, not too abrasive so the VIN stays legible and all the bolt holes etc dont need to be chased (which I will do anyway... just me being pedantic).
    They have some lovely old car bodies etc down there waiting to be blasted..

    It will be an M10 bolt. Remove it and clean the thread with a wire brush, lubricate with a little WD40 and then tighten with a combination spanner, or 3/8" drive ratchet. It is the right length to give you a good feel for the correct tightness. Generic torque tables are basically useless in my opinion because torque varies with length of thread contact, pitch, materials, lubricant or dry, and size.

    Sounds like a plan .... lucky I did alter the fork height as 1 of those bolts was barely tight beforehand

    Took my FZR over to Superbike Performance today looking for a cheaper option to the drag's on this sunday.
    Thought i might be able to get a couple of power run's done just to check the carby's out etc
    Getting a couple of power run's done is also $100, so think i'll go the drag route as it's a bit more fun for me.
    I can only stay for the morning if i do go, as my son is playing footy at 1pm and it'll take an hour or so to get home from the drag's
