Gday Ray....not Lucas electrics is it?
Pulled the XR400 out for a ride....kicked her over...wont start.
Had a quick look. Rocker arm on the exhaust side isn't coming back up properly and is holding the valve open. :huh
To hot in the garage to pull it apart now and find out why.
Back up on the stand and onto the PC for a game.
Finished putting the clutch in the Tiger and gave her a clean this morning...Need to go for a small test ride to make sure clutch is all good, but its getting warm and im getting lazy watching tv lol
Looked at it.
Fcuk it's hot, I hate summer.
You know. How work sucks And she had better start behaving or she's up the fuckin road and will be replaced with a younger lighter version.
I must have got the DL too close to the Norton the other week, my headlight keeps failing to incandesce...................... not really, just have a connector in a really hard to get to place that vibrates loose on corrugations........... and a dodgy electrical component
Hopped on my Tranny today and rode it to work and back. Fuck it felt good to be back on a bike. Just got to wait until I can ride dirt again
Nipped up to the blue duck for lunch, I considered wandering over falls creek / hotham but after a great steak I decided I'd just turn around and wander home. 480 km of guzzi heaven .
Fitted a new acewell ace speedo to the Klx that was replaced by acewell.
The first one i fitted ,the speed & rev counter were really erratic,up & down like a hookers knickers.
Acewell swapped it no worries.,all good now
Tinkering with a new project.
Rode it to work, rode it around at work (as part of my job I teach kids to ride motos), rode it home.
I bought a 97 Belgarda TT600,basically all the suspension and wheels are going into this and the motor will be a very tough xt-tt 640-700cc.
How they Hangin' Bill?
Not Lucas, but it seems that the poms still haven't learnt how to keep the smoke in.
Yes, a design problem, so I can expect something similar 'ron.
Now switching the the elsie. Organising the parts to give me a spare wheels set, so I can have alternative gearing. Got 15 to 18 teeth countershaft sprockets. Think I'll go +2 teeth on the wheel.
checked tyre pressure. Black Pearl....15 front,10 back:eek1 Postie...20 front,15 back:eek1......added air to suit.
Removed the OEM xr400r bars and put on some Renthal hi bend RC bars. Test rode for 2 hours in creek beds, sand, hard clay and steep shale rocky tracks.
Feels like a new bike
I was that excited the chain even got a squirt of lube before I rode.
Lots happening in the garage this morning . Here is myself my mate wade with the guns n wonder dog charlie .
Stripped n ready for upgrading suspension, new pipes n racks .
Cleaned and re-oiled air filter, then bled brakes with a full change of brake fluid. Still a few things to do before the LDR on 21st Dec.
Took the klx400 out for a ride after fitting heavier springs & played around with the suspension clickers,
starting to like this bike more & more
Nothing for me today just the commute all week great weather here in the Capital this time of year - cool mornings and glorious evenings.
Been focused on the new deck dabbing paint here and there. Its been reconfigured so I can slip a few bikes underneath - builder owns 10 or so Indians (veteran, vintage and post war) understands.
Tomorrow I will service the X7, G/S (holds about 4+ litres) and change husky oil.
