    Postman arrived yesterday with my parcel from Japan... pretty good service really... shipped on December 1 delivered on December 5. Now if only Australia Post was as efficient...

    Seat cowl for SRX250... not for mine but for a bike located around Glen Innes :)

    Another side cover (in almost pristine condition ) and a couple of SRX250 3WP vents... plus a bag of all the bolts etc from an SRX250... you can never have enough nuts and bolts.

    I got a parcel from Thailand yesterday. So I assume it is a carby kit for the zxr. I say assume because it is one of 7 motorbike projects on the go, my ute needs rings, the Peugeot isn't running yet and a string of other things, like busy period at work and illness, so I haven't even opened it. How can one man have so many toys and be so uninterested in mail.

    On a side note: I ordered a protective case for my phone, it arrived in an envelope marked "fragile." I think I might have ordered the wrong one. :p

    It arrived Monday, but only just opened it. It is a supercharger from a jetski, and it's much bigger than expected. This is for the fzr speed bike that may never be. It needs a rebuild, both the supercharger and the fzr, which is time and money I don't have, and then event is another 2 weeks and 2 grand - more time and money I don't have. One step at a time. How do I even drive it, let alone 3:1 speed increase...

    3:1 Speed increase???? You are going to want the Supercharger to run at close to 60,000 revs???
    Wow.. that has the potential to hand grenade a few engines I think...lol

    You'll need to work out a pulley/belt drive system off the flywheel with a tensioner on the belt
    You could use a smog pump off a small car, guess it need's to flow the same as 4x BDST28's minimum too
    I was thinking about making a supercharger kit for my pit bike a while ago and was looking at the smog/air pump's

    Centrifugal superchargers spin faster than positive displacement type, think of them as turbos. I might have to check the specs on this one, it might get pressure up at a lower running speed. It may not even make enough pressure, it is damaged, looks like it ate dirt, literally. But that rotrex c8 looks good. But I'm sure it costs more than $135 plus bearings.

    @my67xr there is a mob that make Root's type chargers for pit bikes, too. Forget who it is now. It may be on my thread about my fzr speed bike.

    Yep, such a pity they cost the planet. I thought I did a 250cc flow map with the C8 but can't find it now.

    I looked at the specs of the c8, only good for 75hp, maximum. Not enough for me.

    Now all I need is the damned bike to turn up...lol
    I might go get it next week rather than waiting for the Carrier... 2 day trip but I have customers to see up that way as well.

    Just had a delivery ex USA, my new genuine Yamaha IT200L front fender's arrived :dance2: :party:


    I was told by Yamaha Australia they were obsolete a couple of year's ago, and a couple of year's before that they wanted $110AU ea for the fender's plus post
    These nos fender's only took 12 day's to arrive, both were packed in seperate boxes too,
    how can they post them for $7.99US each ?
    Sure beat's the hell out of the DC repro plastic's too, the nos pair cost me $30 less than 1 new DC repro inc delivery

    China post have done well, the postie dropped off my preload adjuster's for the FZR today, 8 day's from ordering till delivery.
    Quality look's alright too, they have 17mm of adjustment available

    Still waiting on some fuel line from late November 2017 though !

    Just got my pre load adjusters today for the FZX250 Zeal. Only 12 days from China! Can’t be bad. :cool:
    Thanks for the tip off @my67xr
    I’ve got a bit of spare part envy though, as mine don’t have cool little keys to adjust them!
    Still they are nice and shiny, and I did a little dance when I saw them! :party:
