CBR600FK restoring project

Recommended Posts

Couple of pic's of my dads CBR thats been sat in the garage for around 8-10 years. She still runs, needs a bit of work though. Dads hoping to have her on the road by March Smile
To do list:
Brakes bleeding, fit the Mater Cylinder repair kit.
Balance carbs.
Check cam chain.
Give the bike one hell of a decent clean!

Yeh true, I'm self taught, when at 18 I've rebuilt engines, can do valves, carbs etc, now change tyres, but electrical is my failure lol
