    Given the natural surroundings of your workshop/shed that is a mighty fine bike stand.

    I have to use the patio rafters for my bike. :-(

    The level of evil has dropped significantly from original intentions, but noise/smell/smoke/etc. are all still there


    New Tyga screen (standard shape, clear) and upper fairing stay arrived yesterday.
    Full bolt kit from Probolt arrived today, so hopefully re-assembly complete by the weekend, destroying an environment near you by next week


    One more thing - anyone know where i can buy a "snake" thing with a magnet on the end that i can retrieve a bolt in my fuel tank with?

    We have straight ones at work we use to retrieve magnetic stirrers, I can scam one for a few days for you if you like.

    needs:Rebuild top and bottom, new fork seals, new tyres. The fuel tank will need a good clean by now as well.

    New fairings/stickers and paint on the wish list too.

    A fair few.

    I had a few of my bikes stored for about 18 months with fuel in them. No issues.

    So... seeing as I broke it (engine seized)... in what... 2014...

    Recently purchased the following:

    1x 17,000 km jap import motor from a VJ22 (91). looks genuine... very clean, etc. (could be parts washer but hey, not scratched up, etc.).
    1 set of cougar red billet power valves
    1 set of Tuning Works power valve pulleys
    1 set of replacement fork stanchions

    Since this thread (lol) the bike has had
    1x top end rebuild (prior to engine calamity)
    tyga upper fairing stay
    tyga clear screen
    pro-bolt black bolt kit
    VJ22 SP mirrors
    New oil tank sender unit
    original black and green fairings and tank reuinited with the bike
    suspension was marty-moosed


    Plan is once the stuff arrives, ship off to retro moto for the engine swap, carb clean, fork tube swap/fork rebuild. Power valves/pulleys i can do myself. But tempted to get the guys to just do it because in the meantime I've acquired a CBR250RR which is occupying my bike lift.

    Other aspect of plan is to rebuild (one of, i now have 2 busted motors worth of parts) the broken engines to silly spec. But that's some way down the track. I'll be happy to get a reliable low kay engine up and running properly first for a while

    Needs new tyres too, probably pick up some S21s.

    speed3 we still need to un-seize your TZR

    oh and... bump
