finished off the motor innards, checked all the clearances, then buttoned it all up with addition of lots of copper slip to all the threads.
then it was dig out the carbs from the back of the shed, where they have been hiding all winter. check all is still good with fitment and clearance of back of head and top of generator body. slight adjustment to generator and generator mounting point on top crankcase and all is good.
as part of the get everything sorted and in the correct place before going an further, I came to the conclusion that the battery box required some modification! didnt like the closeness of the battery posts to the metal case, also didnt like the fact that i was unable to easily access the charging/diagnosis socket on the top front of the battery without having to remove the battery and box!
small amount of time spent on the mill and all is looking better, still some cleaning up to do, happy with it now.
i have wanted a billet clutch slave cylinder for the build for a while, i couldnt find one anywhere, only place i did find was WSR although when i contacted them they said they were not making them anymore!
well after seeing a pic in a thread on OSS
with a very nice K-Factory item, i had to see if Webike had them, would you Adam and Eve it, they had them in stock for shipment tomorrow
Earlier this afternoon, minding my own business and doing some work on my bike when i get a call from James to ask if he could borrow my bike ramp as he had just had a "come round corner, traffic at a halt in road, overdo the front brake, followed by a hands, knees, arse plant, bike with road embankment interface sort of a moment"
As you can see 370Steve recovery services were put into swift action, and james and wreckage were taken home.
