went down to Mick Gardner Racing to get a new lower rate spring fitted to my rear shock, great service as usual from Russ and the team, got them thinking about things with the spring seat, nearly ended up with one from a koenigsegg super car!!!! It wouldnt fit, so had to have an "ordinary" Ohlins one instead.
Collected my Ohlins paddock mat whilst there, it now has pride of place in my "office"
Cheers guys.

as i had the shock back it was only logical to get it fitted and see how she stands.

put her clothes on for the shoot, also fitted the headlamp, will be getting the mount modified, or a new mount made so it sits closer in to the forks/steering head.

overall though i think the stance is good, and feels right when i am sat on her.

yesterdays "working from home" effort was to have a look at ways to get the h/lamp to sit closer to the forks and slightly higher.

took the mount off the bottom of the lamp and found that if i turn it by 90deg, shamfer top*edge, and then drill a fixing hole for the bolt, it

should work a treat,*




then set about frame with angle grinder and cutting disc, have removed the cross bar between the down tubes in front of the engine, to see if it would make getting the exhaust on easier, attempted to fit both of the systems that i have attained so far for the build, unfortunately neither is going to fit! so it looks like it is going to have to be a trip to Racefit for a custom Legend system.

finished the modification to the h/lamp mount, now sits much much better, slightly higher and also now very close to steering head,

not much space left behind to look odd.



also got the rear sets adjusted to take the Brembo M/cylinder, only thing that still needs doing is the axis pin between the m/c and the brake lever, it is 8mm and the M/c only has a 6mm hole, will get a new pin made with a step and a top hat spacer.

Just received a call from Giles at BikeHPS, my Braketech Superbike discs are in and will be dispatched today, for next day delivery.

Although it looks like build is going to be moved onto the back burner very soon!

I have been informed from work that we are on "4 days notice to move" for help to the civil powers, so good chance that i will be doing something non bike related

for the foreseeable if it happens!!

keep your heads down, stay well

crank came in post today
next thing is to find someone with a faceplate and "V" blocks big enough to check it for true before thinking
about any fitting.
Phoned Amec Engineering, they are on with my head, doing catch up work at the moment, at least they are still working!!
they said they will let me know when it is getting near done.

wanted to get on with something today, but just what to do?

lots to be getting on with, although i just haven't got motivation, in the required quantities at the moment it would seem.

so i did a bit of reading up on changing over the rods onto the new crank, on thing led to another and i put down the books and got

to work on the real stuff.

when i removed the old rods from the crank i was surprised to find the shells looked brand new!! could hardly find any witness marks any where on them.*

so fitted them to the new rods, they will be a great start point, and did a test build.

still need to get the plastiguage and the feeler gauges on them, but all feels good and snug.
