    Can't wait, it will fix the frame i have thats missing the neck.
    Its the only way to get a 4 cylinder in and out of any frame unless its an across and the frame unbolts.
    I did the same thing on my GT550, was so simple to get it in that way and i didn't have to lift 80+kg of engine.

    ZXR and CBR have no frame under the engine, fzr has a removable subframe or something from memory. Alloy spar frames make it easier

    Bought myself an Rjays Kevlar Jacket yesterday.. removable liner as well as back plate, shoulder armour and forearm armour... pretty happy with it for $50
    Plus my CBX250 Belly Pan was delivered today... picked up yesterday in Brisbane.. all for $20 E-Go freight still amaze me in terms of quick service.

    Wow, you're going to need a bigger shed! Or at least a couple less bikes taking up room....

    It's going to be 38 deg's on Saturday - I think you will find yourself friendless in that heat!

    What have i done to my bike today? Not enough. Most of my time spent working on my bike means waiting for parts or waiting for money. The other 1% is working on my bikes.

    It's pretty much over 30 all day, if not all night, too. And summer is only just starting. Our place got a shower of rain (sparse, you had to be in just the right spot), enough for puddles and even a little run of water! It'll probably be dried up by 7am.

    I feel like about my job (motorcycle mechanic shop): today was particularly unproductive with the boss away and between the phone and the door, I changed a tyre and brake switch. I might go to work tomorrow just to get something done with doors closed and phone ignored! Might take my bike to work on, too...

    I put a chain and sprockets on the VTR, tried to free the front master cylinder but joining a working one to it, but I only managed to break the brake lever. Going to have to grease gun it. Once the brakes are sorted, it'll go for sale.

    I reassembled the TTR and listed it for sale - even went for a test ride to check on the cattle.

    I'm having a bit of a sell up: I can't keep doing project bikes, they've got to go!
