Evening all, just thought I'd put a few pics up and tell of what I've done to the bike over the winter period. Decided to get the wheels stripped and colour code the spokes and polish the outer rims, not quite as easy as I'd anticipated, it never is, new wheel bearings all round, fitted an uprated clutch slave cylinder and treated the old girl to a set of rad guards as I noticed one or two dinks in the cooling fins at the end of last year. Will upgrade to a lithium battery when this one gives up and a set of Jonnyboys uprated cables when funds allow, so I'll shut up now and let you look at the pics.

Looking absolutely mint as usual mate no wonder you didn't want to take her out yesterday. Have you gone off the idea of some OZ wheels now? Look forward to getting out together when the sun returns not sure if you had the twin can set up last time. There's a few new members popped up recently round our way be good if we can get the East Anglia ride out sorted Smile
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Looking good and I do like polished ally but after polishing every bit of ally on my exup years ago never again, don't use autosol as it's to coarse, belgom alu is much better and leaves a protective coating.

Cheers for the comments guys, with regards to the oz wheels Ad,I was sort of hoping Rick was going to sell me his after he managed to finally purchase his carbon jobbies, maybe he just forgot the conversation we had at Fugly's, the mood was, shall we say, fairly relaxed wasn't it

relaxed is the only sort of BBQ I get involved with hehe. Ping him a message mate to jog his memory but then what will you do with the fancy new rims? Decisions decisions
