Default Thorburt & the curse of the butterfly mind

I' Gunna start with a confession.....

Even compared to the common goldfish I have a very poor attention span.
Admittedly. for the goldfish, in it's little glass world, This is probley a good thing. for if I had to spend 24 hours a day staring at the Walls of a domed prison. with nothing to do, but swim in circles, blowing the occasional bubble. I'd quickly become bitter & twisted, buy a gun and become the psychotic golden harbinger of death spraying leaded vengeance

Fortunately. I ain't a goldfish. So, my days are full of work, tinkering, lazing etc etc........ my mental instability is kept at bay. & the inhabitants of Oxfordshire don't tend to find they're suddenly full of holes

Anywho..... Back to the point.
Having barely got started back on N.A.R.F... And struggling to find time to actualy do anything anyway. I keep finding other additional things I wanna start doing and my mind flips from what I know I should be getting on with and I start dabbling with summit else

And after firing up the GSXR last weekend. I got it into my head that I need to get her back on the road. This should be a quick job (only needs some new rubber and she good to go)& ,as such,it doesn't deserve a thread.

But.... I can't help thinking that's far too easy. Besides the GSXR is the bike that brought me here, & was the proto-beginnings of what inspired Roadkill. As such, I made alot of mistakes during the build & feel I could of done things better......

So after all that...

Yay!
For starting yet another project, I probley won't have the time to work on and only update occasionally








As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.

So this week...

The first job I decided to do, on Thorburt, is to get it to fire up without being connected to the truck....

This should be a simple.....take the battery off and charging it

Although, nothing seams to be that simple these days....
& with The day job taking up so much of my time , even undoing a couple of bolts, sliding out a battery & hooking it up to a charger, requires more time than I've had
But today I finally got it out....

..... Typically half the cells were dry. So topped it up and connected the charger....

Woohoo! I feel like a mechanical genius* This thing will be back on the road before my birfday**

..... Except, it ain't taking a charge.. Borrox!! as they say in japan

So my first job is....
Buy a new battery


*Yes I really was THAT impressed with myself after doing what is probley the worlds simplest job. Infant, at the moment, I'm pretty sure I could cobble together a interplanetary spacecraft outa some tin foil, sticky backed plastic & that gungey stuff that formed under my fridge as a student
**that'll be mid November... Altho, note I aint said which year

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.

I've taken it upon myself to add pics to your thread:

Here you are charging your battery. I think part of your problem is that it's not the right battery for your bike:




There you are removing your battery. Why you did your bike up like a Harley Clone is beyond me?



Since you couldn't get your battery charged you had to take the misses out on the scoot:
