took the carbs off and replaced the 17.5 pilot fuel jets with the new 20's, will get her started up tonight and see if that has any effect on the holding revs!!
bike stance is a lot better now the fork extenders have been fitted, collecter is now much higher (or at least looks much clearer of the floor than it did)
have removed the now "old" number plate and am waiting on the new one arriving through the post.

SHIT HAPPENS!!!!!

tried out the carbs, running better, not holding revs nearly as bad, if the new reg plate turns up tomorrow
I will take her out for a test ride.
took some pics of her to get an idea of the stance with the fork extenders fitted.
sorry about the light but that was the best i could get!




how it was without extenders

got the fork bits back from my mate the machinist, fitted them, adjusted the preload and fitted the new fork cap covers.





Took her out for a blast as i had received the new plate, running soooooo much better now with the new pilot jets, pulls from low revs cleanly through to higher throttle settings without the hesitation it was suffering from.
have now also got the gear position indicator sorted and the speedo set, is slightly out so will need to get it on the dyno for correct speed, coming together nicely now.

PS just got a GSXR 750 "DOT" head for her bolt on extra ponies

not done a huge amount today, spent most of the time changing the brake hose ends, so i could put more slack in the lines, then bled them, also
bled the rear caliper again, but removed it from its hanger so i could get it raised above the M/cylinder to make it easier to remove all the air.
changed the pilot air jets for the next size down.
will see how she runs with them before resorting to changing the needles.
also cut a hole in the floor of my shed and fitted a ground anchor, so that i comply with my insurance policy! insurance was fairly cheap, anchor fucking wasnt

WTF, they make you chain the bike down when you have it home in a locked shed?

I love the new fork caps. What do you think the rake and trail are now? Do you think there was much of a change in handling?

no real idea mate, i just took the CBR front end and fitted it to the GS frame, forks are much steeper angle than stock GS, but handling is rather neutral and i was supprised that it seems to be rather stable in a straight line at speed, and hasnt wanted to shake its head yet!

just gave her a quick warm up and rev check with the new pilot air jets fitted.
idles very well now at 2 turns out of the pilot screws, but was still holding revs and slow to return to idle, when rev'd over around
5k rpms!!!
so made the decision to change the needles fitted (2.99's on bottom grove) for the new richer ones (2.98's on 2nd groove)
when she was rev'd again over 5k, she revd her tits off!!!
so it was out with the needles and down 2 grooves, back in again, and start up once more.
little bit down at idle, but adjusted that,
not holding revs any longer, even when given a big hand full of throttle. if weather is ok i will take her out for a proper test tomorrow,
if all is well, i will get her booked for the Dyno.

So it would be your fault that they stole it out of your locked shed, on your property that is probably in your back yard? I don't understand how that works except to make another way for them to not pay out if it is stolen
