Re: Storm needs a home

Serious thought. What about donating to a local charity for them to auction?

Re: Storm needs a home

Damn. If this had been a year or so ago I'd have given you that trailer in exchange. Pretty sure that would have been fair :wink:

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

Neither my bike or a VTR. A mate's just restoring a rather sweet old CB250 K4 but a part of the top yoke just came away when he was pulling it apart 😬 I've never tried Tig welding cast aluminium but there was nothing to lose really. Bit of Googling and careful setting up seemed to do the trick 👍 Dr...

Re: From 107 to 128

Cheers fellas but I think it's bad. It's certainly not a simple fix anyway. The oil had lots of metal shards in it and some of it gold coloured. I couldn't put my finger on what those would be until after I'd pulled the clutch cover off and head covers. The clutch looks fine and I had staked the cen...

Drained the fluids and pulled a few covers off. It's definitely dead. For this year at least.

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

First of two test days at Cadwell. Shame someone wasn't feeling very friendly. How did the test weekend go Nick ? . Mixed mate. Some good sessions on Saturday but I wussed out of a damp session at the end if the day then it lashed it down. Plus a guy tried to come up the inside of me as I apexed at...

Clutch problem?
Could be. That was the last part I messed with, so it's a logical place to start.

Re: From 107 to 128

It's dead, I've killed it. A weekend at Cadwell had me nearly punted off by a guy who ran into the back of me then home for an early bath after the motor let go coming out of Park. It sounded horrible so up went my hand and I pulled of. Nothing obvious, like holes in the cases, but it wouldn't move ...

Re: 1997 VTR EFI conversion and other tinkering

Excellent work and thanks for sharing. This would be a very useful post if someone was thinking about adding a turbo.
