New arm arrived, that was quick!



Got the adjusters out, but there is no way I would have got them out without an impact driver, I swear they were loctited in.



Who the fuck puts Loctite on adjustable bolts? Should be a war-crime to be answered for at the Hague. Anyway, ran a tap through the threads to clean them and put a spare bolt in to test.



Seems good, looking forward to cleaning the whole arm up and getting it in. not sure if i'll keep the decals or put another set of renthal stickers on. Shame I already used up a pair on the old arm.

I assume the chiselling work on the filler cap was the previous owner and not you trying to get if off.

So i've been making friends with a guy restoring an old Citroen in a garage near mine:



And we heard a garage came up near us, so we're splitting the rent and using it as storage for spare parts / bikes, since mine was getting a little crowded:





Dirt bike will be going in there when it's back together too.

So i have been getting on with stuff on the CRF. Got the stainless engine bolts finished:





The bag of removed bits is getting quite substantial now:



You might have spotted my new Power Bomb header too:



I removed my crappy clutch lever, and got an oem hotstart one fitted:





And un-did the delete that had been done for the cable. I got my brush-guards fitted, they needed some tweeking since they didn't work on my Fatbars:





And that's about where it stands:



Still waiting on the new frickin caliper from the US, going to try changing out the line and fitting when i do it to braided ss too i think i have some left-over spares from other stuff that could work. Then it's pretty much good to go.
