Let's hope so Shiny - I've ordered a better ignition (CDi and coil) and a new carb plug, and it seems that the rest of the electrics are good, but I'm going to fettle the rear brake (which was next to frickin' useless), check the valve clearances and a few other bits too before the next outing. Have got a full day booked t the start of September, but if everything is together I'll try and squeeze in an evening session before then to check...

I did get a full track day in after al, and it was great fun.
ell, I say a 'full' day, it was shortened by the fact that it started puking oil out of the breather at a great rate...
Also, the engine mounting bolts all vibrated loose, resulting in the motor moving around and spitting the chain off, and also snapping a rear engine mounting bracket. Easily resolved with tightened fasteners, but that mount needs welding up. It seems that the bracketry on these M2R frames is really thin, as the coil brackets snapped off too. I'm going to strip it and go around the frame checking and re-welding stuff soon...
