    Unfortunately that radiator looks like it`s too different. Seems like it doesn`t have enough curve to it either

    I didn't know that you could get your hoses done like that, and looks like quality work too.

    Yep that`s the beauty of it . Doesn`t affect the rubber what so ever. The spring bits have a bit of pitting but oh well .I`ll take a better photo later

    That is a great price in anybodys language. Not sure I would trust my 40 year old brake hoses.. the Cad plating looks good though.
    I hope there isnt too much material added or your axles may not fit through the bearings etc.. I hope they do though :)

    Most of the stuff all sorted into bags . Stupid Kawasaki specifies bolts with 2mm different lengths m6 10mm length in some spots and m6 12mm length in other spots

    Yeah neither haha. I did thoroughly inspect them so hopefully theyre fine . The plating is all stripped off before replating so should be fine

    Decorative plating is usually only .002" to .003" thick (you can convert that to metric if you need to) so should not be a problem.

    Found this at a wrecker in Gosford . Went and picked it off a bike sitting outside. Was heavily yellowed and the black was peeling off . A very good polish and respray the black and it looks fairly good. Bit of a yellow tinge but beggars can`t be choosers. Nice to see it has no cracks or sun crazing surprisingly

    Bit of progress. So after concluding that my oil line had 2 pin holes in it and that new ones are no longer available I decided to make my own . Using the original ends I cut off the crimped ends and silver soldered some high pressure fittings onto the remaining pipe that was sticking out . Now it takes regular high pressure oil hose and can be replaced if the rubber fails again. The hose is rated for 500 psi and is pretty overkill but it's what I had so oh well . Then I got them zinc plated silver

    20181126_170548.jpg
    And for the bottom fitting I've also drilled and silver soldered a brass boss with the correct thread to screw in the oil pressure switch

    20181126_171102.jpg 20181126_171056.jpg
    As you can see I've re-located the oil pressure switch to the oil line and the new oil pressure sender to the original spot on the block. The oil pressure sender would foul on the side fairings if I put it on the line

    After a first session of paint stripping I'm now torn between doing the bike as original condition or maybe painting the centres white and polishing the outers . What do you guys think?

    Paint the centres and polish the outers, it will look good
