Mark, I thought you were going up to the 'Naki to talk to Triboy & Phreaky Phil about the TAT?

Still waiting on the light & conversion holder from the US. They left the US a week ago (LA & NYC) & seem to have gone missing. I have got the Hella semi sealed H4 insert ready to go in the light. Hella 1058HD.

Got an e-mail Friday night to say the shock has arrived at CKTechnical, so expect that Tuesday.

Got the brakes working properly yesterday. The caliper pistons were sticking, which meant the pads were dragging (a lot) on the disc when the brake was released. Pulled the caliper apart, cleaned it, & reassembled. Used a small air compressor to almost pop out one piston at a time (clamped the other three, so that only one I wanted to work on could move), then split the caliper & cleaned up each pot indvidually. Used the right caliper as parts supply for a dust seal, & one piston (I was too rough removing the first piston). Dust seals were / are a little twisted, and I might look for a rebuild kit at some stage, but they are working okay now. BTW don't let the air push the pistons all of the way out. They go off with a bang, and richocet around in the caliper. Thats why one dust seal needed replacement.

Dropped some new pads in as well. These are Premier pads PH53 (HH) Sintered. Equivalent to EBC FA158HH



Originally had the brake line following the original route inside the fork legs. Took the opportunity to route them outside the leg when I thought about what line flex could do.....(eh GuzziTony)

Note that the Advrider site thread re brake conversion is wrong re the 4 pot Tokico caliper I have. It indicates caliper piston sizes at 30mm & 27 mm, ie smaller than the Nissin, which is 34mm & 30 mm. That would mean that these don't work with the 13 mm GS mastercylinder. However in fact they are 34mm & 30mm, just the same as the Nissins. Had me worried for a bit there when I re-read that thread. I'll drop a correction on that thread.

Now this thread proves that I don't check the NZ forum on here often enough. Late to the party, but great stuff!

Thanks. Enjoyed Newboys build up (spread through a no of sites). You did the right thing negotiating with him directly - otherwise I'd have competed with you for your bike! . But have to say I'm enjoying this build up process

Well, I'm happy to see more of us lavishing some attention on these old bikes. I still have a long list for sure!

Would like a closer look at your HPN/Acerbis tank rear mounting point. My bike is missing the bracket. Do you know if they sell the brackets separately? Although I have thought about getting the mounting point welded to the frame.

Don't know if they are available separately, but wouldn't be too hard to get one made up. Effectively a u-bolt to hold the centre of the frame, & a winged plate over the two downtubes.



Have a look in my web album. There are a few more photos with it there.

Thanks for that. I think I'll try and get one made.

Can you guys stop bragging about your big tanks? Some of us are feeling a little inadequate

Igor mortis feel free to post up some shots of your bike in either airhead thread- it's always goodto spot differences in setups for ideas.

Dropped the sump

Dropped the sump to replace the leaky gasket & took a couple of photos while I was down there for interests sake.

The 'bits' in the bottom of the sump appear to be non metalic, like gasket material. Generally happy with the fact that there wasn't really any sludge down there..Those four points in the corners are the bolt holes for the bashplate. On the slightly deeper RS's sump there was baffling to stop oil surge. Nothing on the GS.

Looking up into the engine, you can see the filter housing to the left, cam followers mid shot, & oil pick up screen. The dip stick is hanging down just above that. That rough casting going thru the centre is the engine mounting bolt housing

The new sump gasket (not pictured) is coated & bonds with heat. But I have put a very light smear of gasket eliminator on this to help shift the gasket next time I need to drop the sump.


Also for Padmei a couple of pictures of the bashplate off the bike.



Big day tomorrow. Expecting the shock down from New Plymouth, and the light in from the States (I can see its been through NZ customs from the UPS track & trace). Got the H4 conversion rings this afternoon.

46 DRS shock, BM 836 (which is the set up no).

The final shipment arrived this afternoon. Now all I need to do is make them all work together, legally..

Thanks fr the pics of the bash plate. Those new bits look fantastically fancy sigh...

It'll be interesting to see how the Baja is fastened on. Whats the other lite for? Are you gonna swap the baja lite for the other one or something? wait let me guess - the original baja is right angled & the other one is left??
