Just put a NITRON shock in her! What a pita joba that was! Akrapovic headers made it so much worse than it has been before. Back end had to Come off too.
Anyway that's it done now. I believe some riding is on the cards. Bellypan hopefully here tomorrow

I don't like to say this Rob, but you're going to have to do the job again as you have fitted a Nitron shock not a Maxton :lol:

All joking aside, nice work :thumbup:

some goods news at last, we went back to the house this evening to look for the missing cat, we're only allowed in the fire zone for a few hours. and we are over the moon that he turned up. a tad dirty/sooty but otherwise ok, we'll take him to the vets on Monday for a check up.
Sad about the rabbit Marty, but pleased to hear your cat has turned up. I hope his check-up went well,

hi chris
we didn't need to take him to the vets in the end, he has no injuries, he's breathing fine, he's also eating and drinking well, i will just have to put my protective motorbike gear on before i try and clean him up, he hates it and will tear me to pieces.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Very pleased to hear that Marty :thumbup: I have found in the past that my old leather motorcycle gauntlets work well with cats claws :wink:

Last night I assembled the bike ready for Snetterton next week, ran her up to check for leaks (I made some new fuel lines) then realised I hadn't removed the two carb vent pipes as advised.......I managed to pull them from the carb frames out the way! Only thing left to do is wash it - I HATE washing bikes, well, I hate washing anything by hand!! :lol:

Pulled the Firestorms ignition switch apart to clean the contacts. Sometimes it was taking two attempts for the ignition to stay on. Normal service has now been returned :)

Annual oil and filter change, plus fitted a louder horn.
All ready for Northern Ireland.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
