@kiffsta might have one
Thanks... I'm considering buying this:
I know this fairings are bad quality (and bad pairings) but i maybe it's not too bad for the mudguard... and have some spare parts...
Check the shipping cost before buying.
The price includes shipping (standand shipping, 1 month)... If i want a faster shipping €100 more...
i have purchased a front guard for a honda from aliexpress and quality was quite satisfactory.
At least it's ABS, make sure it is injection moulded, not glued on lugs or anything. And NEVER GET PVC FAIRINGS!!!! I can't stress enough, you are not saving $100, you're just wasting $500.
Yesterday at work I was tasked with getting a scooter running. It had been sitting for 10 years. It's an LML 125 2 stroke with four speed gearbox. Unlike anything I've ever ridden, felt like being a learner again due to the controls being different.
Got it running with some fresh fuel, battery and spark plug, then a wash.
Finally got to work on bikes! As in my own bikes. Had dad picking a bike up for me, too. I put the TTR250 on the ramp. It's not pretty, but I need to get a spark. Backburner. I was planning to get the VTR 250 sorted first. It's been sitting a while, so carbies off, pretty clean inside, back together and tried starting. I put a little fuel down its throat to help it, not so good, the bike caught fire (like a BBQ flash fire, just blew it out) and flooded it. Plugs out, iridium plugs, blackened and wet. Found a couple of old plugs and fired her up! No, the bike ran, not set it on fire, again. Now for all those minor things, like chain and sprockets, make the brakes, see if the clutch and gearbox work, check fluids... Aftermarket exhaust sounds means.
Doesn't look that good in the flesh.
Oh, and I put new tyres on the 650 yesterday: Maxxis. Now I'll have regularly check tyre pressure and slow down on roundabouts. I am going to need them to last a lot of ks, too expensive to do often.
Painted tank, mudguard seat cowl in 2 pak 1972 Ducati green frame “Greek green”. Experimenting with adjustable “laverda “style clip on handle bars.
@Gizziracer I saw your build, thinking of repainting the frame, is it a big job to do? Is the wiring loom and cables through the frame? Basically, is it an hour's work or a whole weekend of work?
It’s a fairly big job totally stripping the bike to paint the frame.. I only did it as the original bike was a stat write off and I built the bike into a new., complianced frame.. you’d be doing well to do the job in a weekend.. maybe 2 12 hour days but maybe not even then.
I attended my first vjmc meeting tonight , was nice to get out on the t500,
I really need to make more time to ride
thurs nite for me and had national committee phone hook up last nite.just renewed ad in old bike australia for 12 months.
Bought myself another bike... a runner this time. Needs to be registered, rego ran out in May so it will need a Blue Slip but should be an easy pass.
Aussie delivered 1991 VT250 Spada that looks to be in pretty good unmolested condition. It needs a little cosmetic work and it does have very high KM but the price was right. Pick it up on Sunday so next week will be time to book in for my Stay Upright course... god only knows what the lead time on that will be lol.
About fuking time
