    You were supposed to turn the trip-meter so it says 666.6, too

    Well, I did something I have never done before , I paid more than asking price for 2 bikes. I had a customer come in and offer me some bikes as he is leaving Brisbane and needed them picked up. he proposed a price then showed me some pics , so I offered a slightly higher price to secure it

    Here is one on them , a barn find fresh 1985 gsxr400

    Last pic is after Phil gave it a quick clean

    I believe you paid more than asking for the sv650 with the clutch switch problem and for an incomplete fzr250...

    Didn’t do too much today dues to the cold and the pain from my knee.
    I did get most of the bearings out of the engine cases but there are 2 blind bearings that my pilot bearing puller wouldn’t budge.
    Seems the little hook end doesn’t seat well enough because of the slight chamfer on the inner diameter
    I might have to grind the legs a bit so they can get more bite.

    I will try that tomorrow and if it doesn’t work I will worry about it after they are machined for the 350cc barrel.
