    I just wrecked a 1995 cbr600f , it was a bitsa and had a hyosung front end on it , what caught my attention was the custom handlebar , at least he could bolt on a bar end or 2

    WE are currently 40.4 outside (feels like 43 so the BOM says) and a pleasant 25 downstairs in the Office. Not looking forward to 45 plus tomorrow though. At least Sat and Sunday are back to low 30's... might even take a trip down to Goulburn for the Great Southern Motorcycle ONLY Swap Meet.. should be some nice bikes and gear down there..

    I didn’t do anything yesterday as I was on site at Western Sydney Zoo commissioning a couple of Irrigation booster sets and then had a fun night at Homebush for a Phil Collins concert.

    Hoping to be able to pick up my old exhaust today so I can sort out these new downpipes.

    Thanks Mr Grey but you will have to call me Mr Brown soon. We are slowly switching over to brown as it is just creates far less problems for us, but we are still going to leave our logo in green etc. I have a set of ZXR250 carbs and they are the next carb challenge.

    Yes, the three common colours for FKM (Viton) are black, brown and green. When this elastomer became popular the de facto standard in Europe was green and in the US, brown. Our fuel seals for Mikuni BDST are black but as I proved in another video it is the real McCoy. https://litetek.co/MikuniBDSTFuelSealViton.html Took us years to get those damn things perfected. Required a three piece mold.
    Black FKM is pretty easy to spot because it is more of a dark grey than a glossy black. I'm pretty good at telling them apart by smell too.
    Since we try to sell everything you need to restore your carbs, I think we have a responsibility to help customers complete the job successfully. A comprehensive guide is really needed because they are tricky little devils.
