GSF250V build update. The final chapter... After changing the fuel petcock, I was ready to take the GSF for a spin around the block. Put it in gear and road out of the shed with no revving issues. Went to ride out of the back yard and it revved up again. I was just about to turn the engine off when I realised I had the handlebars turned left. As soon as I turned them straight the revs dropped. I thought I'd checked the cable routing, but obviously I did not check it thoroughly. Pulled the throttle apart and put it back the right way and now no revving issues. I was just about to ride off and I noticed the fuel gauge was reading EMPTY. Years ago I would have had to ask a sparky mate to fix this, but after hanging around with Murdo I knew exactly what to do to fix it. After fixing the fuel gauge, I eventually managed to get the bike out for a quick spin. This engine is a bit smokey, but being unregistered I'm unable to put any miles on it or the new tyres to determine if there are any issues. I didn't rev it too hard going around the block. It seemed to pull okay with a slight stutter at 8,000rpm, so I kept the revs low. I may have to take this thing to Broadford for a track day to see how it goes. The engine was purchased by the PO from a wrecker in Sydney. It doesn't have good compression, which could be due to sitting and doing nothing for years. Bike looks okay, but I don't understand why these bikes don't have a temperature gauge (unless this bike has the wrong cluster on it?).
