This morning, I finished putting the calipers back on. I've been using the bike between all the jobs, but this was the last listed job to do.
So, even though I bought the bike, running, from a dealer a year and a half ago, here's a synopsis of things done. I won't list all of them downwards, as it would be too much!!!!
Just finished fitting new disks, hoses, plus on one side, new brake psitons, seals etc - had pulsating through brake lever.
New guides and unleaded seats plus exhaust valves.
Replacement SS exhaust system - S/H from Motorworks.
Replacement bevel drive, due to stripped threads - old bevel will be refurbed.
High bars for comfort - had them in the shed.
Fitted Surefoot side stand - marvellous S/H from Motorworks.
Replaced missing swinging arm nut cover, replaced missing rubber from gear lever, missing screw from master cylinder, replaced missing tool tray, fitted Odyssey battery, condensor, plugs, leads, air filter, oils etc.
Fitted later R80, 38mm carbs.... These improve starting... the choke now works like a proper choke.
Stripped and cleaned fuel tap to cure leak.
Secured fuel tank filler cap with dowels - cannot be locked, but removes from tank properly now.
Replaced leaking fork seals and fitted gaitors to protect stanchions.
New tank and seat badges.
Rub n Buffed engine and wheels
New throttle cables and a choke cable.
Replaced manifold rubbers.
Removed old fairing and fitted headlamp, indicators and bracket.
Fitted heated grips
There's probably a bunch of stuff I've missed and I've still got a handlebar fairing to fit --- SEE!!! --- I haven't finished yet!
