    Dropped the radiator and pulled the plugs might go for a hotter spark see if that helps.

    Iridium a are meant to last like 5x as long to the best of my knowledge but this set might be fouled.

    Got a new chain for the bike, went to break it to get it at the proper length. Double checked and triple checked that I was only taking off 10 links. Marked it with a permanent pen. Ground the head off, put the breaker on and then flipped the chain around as I had it pushing the peened head through instead of the ground one.

    Pin pops out, turn the 'wasted' section over and instantly notice that I've cut it down 1 link too short *sigh*. Feeling kinda stupid right now haha.

    Back to the bike store to pick up another master link.

    Today I painted the revamped exhaust, still not 100% happy but it will do for now.
    Installed the new pod filters that were delivered yesterday.
    Re-installing the exhaust will have to wait till I can get hold of some gaskets.
    If I can do one thing a day I'm making progress

    Its a mid eighties Suzuki GS550 (in-line 4) , I just got her home, she is running on 3 and I think some fresh plugs and oil and plug leads should see her good. I'm not posting my purchase price as I intend on moving her on or I will fit this engine to Yongs bike
