Great timing as I was seriously getting bored being in coffee19 lockdown here in NZ. The thing hasn’t stopped all day! Only a cheap model but seems to be doing something.

    Trialling different combinations of soap and water temperatures to see what works best.

    Carbs are from a MC16 NS250R

    In hindsight, could have gone for the larger model…

    Heat is important! 80-90°C will powder the gummy residue, blow the channels out with compressed air and carby cleaner to ensure it is dry and clear

    Finally got my new rear shock from the nice people at Race Tech.

    It's the last thing I've been waiting for to put my MC19 back together. I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend.

    The shock that came with the bike was seriously shagged so we didn't have a whole lot to work with. Fingers crossed that they came up with something good.

    I explored a bunch of options before I called them up. It wasn't cheap but it was built to my spec for a lot less money than some of the other options out there. It's also fully rebuildable/serviceable so if I need to change springs or valving it's not a big deal. I've been a customer of Race Tech for a very long time and they've always been great to work with, so I have confidence that this was the right solution.

    Now if I could only track down a chain slider...

    I'm stuck between having a known good tuner in AU set up a stock MC22 shock for me, or having one built here. Probably a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation. But I'll deal with that once mine is actually running again.

    It seems like it’s a lot easier to find suspension options for the MC22.

    I didn't forget you. I had the shop return the original shock and I should have a couple of minutes to sit down and measure it today.

    Yes, I’m waiting for chain and sprocket kit for the XT. Coming from Gold Coast to Logan ( next door). Sent a week ago with tracking, Aust Post sent it to Brisbane sorting, currently sitting in Melbourne sorting ( yes, Melbourne), now has to come back to Brisbane sorting for delivery. Due date past. Retailer has done the right thing, Aus Post systems useless. Don’t blame COVID!
