    I know, I have been on the lookout for pipes for a while now. Mufflers are easy as I want to use Dunstall copies anyway.

    So I was doing fork seals in my zxr and I ran into an issue I'm wondering if yous have had , the thicker of the two bushings for the fork tubes will not fit in I can't understand why though as they are the same bushing I took out . It just won't slip in ,l. If you guys can help I'd greatly appreciate it I am stumpted 2664747b245ec3f275955f980b0458e8.jpg 802b73731df64057dd0f6953286156a8.jpg

    They shouldn't just slip in, they are meant to be firm, you don't want them floating when in use. But use a scourer to clean any residue off the fork outer where the bush sits and off the outer of bush. Then use the fork seal installation tool to tap it into place.

    They are usually hard to get out, too. Make sure there's no lip and the bush is right way around, if there only one edge. But scrub the seat of the fork outer.

    Picked this up from Jervis Bay today. It moved around a bit in the wind but it got home ok.
    The frame has been butchered and they have clear coated the tank to keep the “patina” but it looks to be basically debt free.
    I will add more pics etc in my project thread.

    Nice pickup , there is certain class associated with 70’s bikes. I just started on a gt380 project that one of my customers gifted to me.


    Need to start a thread to capture it

    I installed the new cam chain tensioner in the ZXR - almost forgot to release it! That may have made me cry if jumped a tooth.

    Other than that, in the past few weeks I've only ordered a couple of parts. Just not getting anything done. I gave my WR(YZ)250F to a mate, the deal was let him pull it down and see if it is worth him going any further - missing some parts, so it is worth more parting it, but we'll see if he will build the bike first.

    Outstanding work, please post them in "The Garage" so it doesn't get lost in this post and others can enjoy it.


    cancel that, I see you have already done it.

    I picked up my ZXR. Off the ground, because someone pushed it over. They wouldn't have known it was my bike, or what day of the week it was, or much else of reality...

    Turned out that the rearset was also damaged, as I found out when I went to ride home and the footpeg fell away when I went to use it. Luckily I have some more. But a real shame about the paint and cracked fairings, especially considering I was trying to sell it. Oh well, spilt milk.

    I don't think she did, either. My workplace is area with, well let's just say, people struggling with life. It's sad to see, and it seems to be a growing issue in our society.

    Done valve clearance on the zxr and now it's sadistically rattly and won't run again other then when alot of easy start is used . Much like the last time when an idle jet was clogged but now it is clear and still won't have it I am at a loss now everything is as it should be
