    Yep, that one looks decidedly worn , I have to admit , I had done around 2000 kms since the rebuild and she runs like a top, i suppose things like this are expected.

    I am working on getting it painted over the winter. She will look tops when she is back with her proper colours

    Thought I would dry out the bike from under the covers after a big drop of rain Friday ... went for a startup as its been awhile with the FZR ... no start but it did leave a big puddle of fuel on the ground ... bikes shite me off

    Maybe Im blessed ... I spent a week recently on the roof doing repairs and replacement roofing and the flue from the woodfire has rusted in parts ..... and guess what .... nice rain , collected in buckets in my loungeroom .... back to square one ... 5 steps forward ... 10 back

    At least being single I dont have a woman to piss me off as well

    I have been searching and I can get a set of CNC machined adapters that will allow the use of Calipers with a 40mm mount spacing which opens up lots of potential.
    They are $117 plus through Zenmarket so I will search a bit more but if I get them there are plenty of brand new calipers from China for not a lot of $$

    Received a call from a young fella in Toowoomba who wanted to offload a cb250f hornet , he’d recently had surgery and could no longer ride , he had pulled a few bits off but said it ran, so I bought it

    I figured I should try and find something else to make the trip worthwhile , a few mins later I spotted a pair of ts185’s , I only bought one of them , funnily enough it had almost everything I am missing, all I need is a front fender

    Left at 2:30pm, home by 9pm will a van load

    The hornet is too good to pull down , might put a correct headlight on it and sell it .

    Now am half way to rocky for a family event , @ShaneP has given me a tip on a large cache of old dirt bikes so I will inspect them tomorrow, I guess that makes this a business trip :)

    I have a mate in rocky who is a sparky , every time he comes to Brisbane he replaced light switches and does loss of electrical work at my house , now the roles are reversed , I get up this morning in rocky and he presents me with a 2015 crf110 that idles but won’t rev, stripped the carb , main jet and slow jet are blocked solid . Trip to auto barn to buy some threebond , I cleaned them up reassembled the bike and it would rev but stutter. Stripped it again, found someone had removed the af mix screw and left the rubber o ring in there crushed up and did it up, once I fished it out and flattened the seal back out , I was able to put it back together in the correct order and it now runs like a bought one. His daughter is stoked as she can ride again

    My mate has a brand new klr650 and I jumped at the chance of a test ride , I was suitable impressed as I have never ridden a larger capacity dual purpose / adventure bike. Not sure I would buy one as they are really tall and it wasn’t easy to throw the leg over well, that was until he said stand on the foot peg then throw the leg over

    Got my 11yo daughter to sit on my bike on the stand. She played with it for 3 hours while I built my new workbench and tidied the shed up.

    She absolutely loved it. I showed her how to hang off the bike, how to use the controls, change gear etc.

    You can get on a race bike before then... Like you need that sort of idea being thrown around.

    Blasted, cleaned and partially re-built the TT350 carby today.. only issue is I need to drill out one screw that was broken off and the Keyster kit didnt include the secondary main jet... I wonder what the chances are of Yamaha Aust having the jet??

    And then I looked at pressing bearings into the rear sprocket carrier and boult up the sprocket... bearings etc are all good but the you beaut sprocket nuts in 7075 aluminium are M10 x 1.25 when they should be M8 x 1.25
    I have messaged the seller on Ebay as he advertises them as being for FZR250 1989 +
    I will see what they come back with....
    It wasnt the most productive day all up...

    Went for a ride on the bandit today - first time I've been out on a bike on a weekend since I did the track day on the R6 in feb. Very rusty but it all came back and I had fun. Bit on the cold side even during peak sun.

    Have to get out on the bike more often, instead of fixing them

    They might have it but it'll be expensive, a mate bought a main jet off them for one of his older bike's, was $58

    The carby is made by Teikei, none of the jet's are interchangeable with Mikuni or Keihin

    Ordered from Trooper Lu's Garage (Yamaha Dealer at Liverpool) and got a few other minor items as well.
    The jet was $36 but about the same price as Megazip, Impex etc and way cheaper freight.. so hopefully it will be in stock but there is no rush right now, still waiting for the Cylinder head to be finished.

    So, I had a reply from the seller with the rear sprocket nuts saying they ONLY had M10 nuts. Now I know my rims are of an FZR250 3LN1 because I stripped the bike down.
    Does anyone with an FZR250 have M10 sprocket bolts??
    Looks like I need to find a set on M8 x 1.25 nuts for mine.
