    Yep... I did see those while looking. I am only after the flanged ones at present... although I could always just get a nice set of nylock nuts and not worry about the bling factor... lol I can leave that to @GreyImport and the Hammertone Flyer.

    I finally got around to fixing my Speedo! No more calculating speed from the tacho for this guy!!

    Been working on a lot of bikes, but that's about all on mine. Though I might try to get the Aprilia RS125 on the road in the next couple of weeks.

    I am not having much luck with EBay stuff lately. My brake MC Assyrian and clutch levers arrived and the clutch is mostly ok ( cheap Chinese) but the brake side only has an M6 hole for the bracket to hold the reservoir and no mirror mount and the pivot bolt is just that, a standard bolt that had the nut on by 3 threads, ie loose.
    Plus they are already sloppy at the pivot bolt.

    Let’s see what they come back with.

    You can get mounts that are a folded plate bolted on to the bracket, or ones that are knuckles to bolt to the bars, or pivot pins with mirror mount, or bar-end mirrors...

    Yep, I know there are those options but I bought these as they said that they have M10 connections for mirrors.
    And now they can’t seem to understand that no hole for the mirror is an issue....... hmm now if only I could type in Mandarin.

    Haha I had this exact issue, it’s probably the same seller on eBay. I sent them a friendly message saying that they should remove or atleast change the Ad so it is correct, obviously they haven’t.
    I ended up buying some from “Pro Bolt Australia” m8 x 1.25 titanium flange nuts.

    Well, this is more of a monthly update. I have 4 projects on the go, and had a couple of jobs on the 650 - like fixing the speedo, no more counting gears and calculating speed for me! I recently got an Aprilia RS125 (thanks to @kiffsta for find) that is untidy and not yet complete, but it runs and shouldn't be too hard to get on the road. Still trying to reassemble the KDX, not that I've really done anything recently. I am rebuilding a yz250 engine at work, slowly. I did work on one of the zxr250 yesterday: I had leaking carbies. I had made a rig to hold the carbies at bike angle (bent tin bolted where the airbox screws goes) to test the float levels, then decided that I needed to do more than clean the carbies. The float tangs had divots from the needle pins, so I used the rotary tool to sand them down and then the wire brush attachment to polish the tang and needle seats. Back on the test bench rig and check if the carbies are leaking.... One did. Sigh. Checked float level, a bit high, and the valve seemed to close after a bit of tapping. Adjust the level and it seems to hold. AND THE BIKE STARTED AND RAN!! Only briefly because no coolant. But big step forward. Could have it on the road, soonish.

    One of my sons mate asked me to get his bike going , this what showed up

    Dirty plug and they were running straight fuel , no 2 stroke oil , I tried to teach them but they were more interested in riding it.

    I went for a spin , loads of fun but if you get caught using it on the road it is a $600 fine

    Aldi have impact drivers for sale for $ 80, battery and charger were an extra $40

    I usually buy name brand tools , but I thought I’d take a punt , very cheap and it
    Works really well.

    They would have to be welded on to stop my Makita undoing them.

    Those Aldi rattle gun's are rated at 350Nm which is the same as 260ftlb's,
    most Falcon wheel nut's are recommended to be torqued to 125Nm / 135Nm or 92ftlb's / 100ft/lbs
    I like that the Aldi rattle gun has a 5 year warranty

    The big Makita DTW450Z LXT 18v is rated at 440Nm / 325ftlb's

    perhaps my wheel nuts are on tighter but doubt it.once they have been loosenned they fly off with the rattle gun. wonder what kiffsta,s experience is?the 4 amp battery i feel is far superior to the 2 amp one.

    I will auctioning off a kidney to fund the chrome work needed on this one, it was used quite heavily in my teens and 20's, only moderate work ever since, plenty of miles left on it.
