    Agreed.

    I still need a proper workshop for days when it's too wet outside.

    Would have been better but my throttle grip was stuffed and slipped on the second run :( a couple of lean spots to clean up if I wish to keep the IXIL pipe.

    You would have to be happy with those figures, have no idea what the figures x factory were but 110hp seemed very reasonable.:thumb_ups:

    Went for a ride to the Blue Mountains today and ended up exploring some gravel roads on the CB250. The views from a place called Anvil Rock couldn't be done justice with a photo so I decided to stop at Wentworth Falls on the way back and took this:

    When I had my previous bikes (Suzuki 1100's and a 1400) it was all about riding as quick as possible and blasting past everything- now that blasting isn't an option I've just relaxed and started seeing all the things I missed.

    My problem is it's been a few years since I have been on a bike. So now I'm back on 2 wheels I don't want to stop. Lol. Just loving it at the moment.

    Tested four reg/rectifiers including the one that was on Scarlet. All way out of spec on at least one reverse resistance and my only working Ohmmeter isn't sensitive enough to check the normal current flow resistance.Ended up ordering a new aftermarket one,

    Attempted to charge Scarlet's battery but didn't leave it on the trickle charger long enough.

    Discovered a leaking petcock on her tank that was smaller than the other two so couldn't be swapped without swapping the whole tank.
    Discovered I was right about the in-tank fuel filter being full of crud too, so swapped the tank for one of the other ones.

    Will have to clean her carburetor and rebuild another one soon at this rate!
