She's looking well chad, dont know what the the old bill arae like down near you but they let it slide up here, so got a small plate thumbs


depends on copper been pulled 4 times, once as a groups

1st, he said i was rasceing but i want, all cos my mate blasted off the long was and i cruised to the shortcut way, he was quite rude about it, but gave me a warning i ddint deserve,

2ndly being too noisey, near a funeralm, i wasnt noisey hes a local biker cop who picks on smaller bikes as was on my 50, he nods at me on the 600.

3rd was speeeding just a nice warning

so not to bad more talk tos except hasting

out group got pulled liams l plate had snaped luke didnt have any, both go 3 points, and he had a right go, but liamk you could se where it snapped but he wouldnt havge it. so i think it depends on the copper
yes it does depend on the police chad,but why give them a reason to pull you

in 9 years ive only been pulled once,and it was for a small plate

if I didnt have that small plate I wouldnt have been pulled,its not just how small the plate is

its the size of the lettering spaces between them ect ect £60 in my pocket is better than £60 in theres thumbs

I just had another look at the pic, reckon you are asking for trouble there Chad, looks good but is it worth a £60 fine and you would still have to put a bigger one on

okay started to polish forks as here



then used buffing wheel and they were like a mirror. however i then went to laquer them and it reacted with the ally and went nasty and faded, i got so peaed i sprayed them. i didnt used normal silver but theied this alinium coat paint coes out an ally colour, looks real nice when wet out the cam, and should clean up nicer, pics dont give it justice. but it will do for now



the dust seals were horrid


so put new ones on with a rubber fork guard. look bit smarter and should protect fromn any stone chips.

i had a misthap with the renthal bars, they were to wide, so choped them, yes i took too much off, kept them as a speaer set in the future

but i had some drag bars kicking about so sprayed them with that ally paint as gave them a craqck and im quite please, still want to chanfge them later on thou



wheel almost clean before it went back on


today im now going to rebuild the front brakes, someones not herd of copper grease andf they need some luvin. guess that why i ngot bike cheap just from sitting these things get mucky. but alost done, just cleaning now and its ready to go on the road thumbsparty

update, dad gave me a hand as i used heat and nout, in end cracked the pins off, they were dicusting,



so i cleaned them up and where the tipes were bit squished from theying to get them out, ive re-shaped them. now a perfetc fit, and been shaped nicely got a good ridge again,. not in yet as waitinjg for new brake pads to arrive got a full set of goldfren sintherd (cant spell) for £34 posted. so ill regreals etc then.

found out even thou its a clean bike that it was someones hack last winter thats why the front was bit nasty but back was very clean i think, just means a lot of cleaning. but where its been sitting since april the front brake pistons were stuck, so, cleaned up, freed them off bled brakes and they move nicely now, but i will keeop and eye as if they stick ill replace the seals.

also the number plate issue, thios is the size difference


but then it doent look that snmall on the bike, maybe not sit next to anyone with a full size plate

your spot on there think mine is a car plate as its larger than a bike plate

the only benefit I can see from having this plate,take it off at bike meets and use it as a tray,reckon I could get 12 cups of tea on it LaughingLaughingLaughingLaughing

those pins are well shot chad get some new ones when funds allow thumbsthumbs

good to see your giving the bike a good fettling thumbsthumbsthumbs

okay update time!

first in 3 weeks been very side tracked.

first cash was short waititng for parts, then car broke and was under that a lot, yesterday it was damp, but today i got working on it thumbs

tell a lie i sprayed the discs yesterday, did them in ally coat like the forks. love this stuff it gets fingerproints easy but cleans up with a wipe, and if yu chup it you can spray a secion and you wont see where its been touched up it blends itself in.

yes in a tree it was warm enough to be out


end result of paint


speedo rotor broke, and this cost me £27 from suzuki Sad


wheel lined up


back on with the brakes that work great Smile


new bar ends with the renthals the oprigonal suzuki ones were too wide.so got some mini ones


started to clean exhaust and shock, but shock will be easier with wheel and plash guards off (next thing to do



back to bed now



like to say bit thankyou to lee for the discs you are a life saver!

and the bike is ready to go noew, just got to put the new rear brake pads on, so it will just be cleaning till its on the road, and seeing as cant se3ll the belly pan my chop it up to fit! thumbs
