    Matching paint colours can be very tricky, especially with so much choice and custom artwork. You don't want to mark a panel on someone else's bike. Or be the spray painter who has to fix it!

    Picked up a 2000 mode zzr250 from a lady who wanted it gone from her house , hadn’t been ridden in 4 years and only had 24k on the clock, She bought it new but stopped riding.


    It has been stored under a tarp so it was looking very tired. @Phil gave her a good clean up, fitted a new battery , cleaned the carbs and she is now a wee ripper. @Phil has claimed it as his own , I had a brand new Michelin pilot front tyre here in the shop so he went up and bought a new rear to match. I Will fit them later and she should be ready for a roady and rego.

    Enjoy your new bike @Phil

    Looked at auctions for a motor. $381 for a motor in unknown condition, $881 shipping. Here's hoping I can talk UTA into selling me one of their formula SAE engines (yeah right)

    Got the ZXR registered this week, went to ride it today, but it struggled to start - low fuel. So crossed my fingers and headed to the servo. Made it! Pumped up the tyres because it handled funny. Then off on the open road I went. About 20km later I notice the indicators not flashing right and it dawns on me: flat battery. Went to turn around and the bike stalls. Roll starting a zxr is tricky, you have to get speed up to shift into second (and higher), but started and ran, for a bit. The battery was too low... Headlights! Unplug them, push start, again. I made it to the driveway - cut out if brake or indicate, to much power draw. Felt like Apollo 13. :-D the lights brightened occasionally, so there's a bad contact or something in there.

    DAVID SILVER SPARES in the UK has just stuffed me over by selling stock out that i had ordered and wanting me to take a part order.Told them to hold order until mufflers come back in stock.will pay at todays prices and wait. i do not recommend them as stock should be packed in the order that they come in.am i urinated-you bet.

    Possible Prostate issue John ? Suggest a visit for the Doc, perhaps increase your water intake.

    Wanted to clean/polish the triple clamp on the ZXR and found this security bolts. Any idea on how to work on them?

    I cant see the bolt too well, but it may be a sheer bolt. When you do it up and it reach's correct tension the head will break off.
    Use a sharp centrepunch and hammer to punch a dimple and then angle the centrepunch and tap it with a hammer to undo it.
    Might take a couple of goes to get it out

    Could also try drilling a small hole a few mm's into the centre of it and tap a torx bit into the hole and try that.

    It’s a sort of a hex screw, not torx, it’s so tiny that I fear I’ll make it round if I push it too hard. If I take it out I don’t think I’ll be able to get it back in again...

    They are one time use bolts ( shear bolts) , as they tighten up, the heads snap off. it is an anti theft measure.

    I usually drill them out or as stated above, you can notch one side of them and then try to tap them around.

    You wont be able to use them again

    lol- no prostate trouble but pi**ed off that david silver spares do not fill orders as they come in. have spent over 2.5 k with them on parts.

    Swapped the bikes around again... the SRX is back on the lift and the CB400 is tucked away in the main garage waiting on either a new frame or some frame repairs to fix the previous bodge job... I must get down and pick up the TT350 head... time to put some serious effort into this little bike.

    I received a call on Friday to pick up an old cb250 Honda , the owner moved to America in 2010 and her dad spent some money a few years back and replaced the battery and a tyre. Alas it sat for another few years and then he called me

    6C7C22BB-CE6E-439B-9904-C9AD80DE3FE1.jpeg

    I drove out and picked it up on Saturday .

    Today the boys gave the carb a quick clean And she fired up, we fitted a new battery and now one of the lads who helps
    Out at the shop is taking it home

    Another one saved and will be back on the road very soon

    Bought myself another CB250 G5 today.. I will pick it up next weekend from down near Jervis Bay.
    This one comes with a complete motor and exhaust pipes (yay) but it has been stripped back to go Cafe.. along with the required TLS front brake.
    The tank looks to be better than my existing one.. I guess we will see what the frame is like.
    The good thing is that it is a late build frame and engine plus I have 99% of the missing bits with the other bike. About all I am missing are the side panels and Air Cleaners..
