    A range of new lock washers, some seals and new screws for the seat fairing arrived from MegaZip today... I have to say that they are quick and consistent with their freight from Japan..

    Front wheel bearing kit for Sylvie the CBF250. Hopefully this will stop that grinding noise in morning traffic! 70b27f3a72875e61333ec18dc641255c.jpg 30dea0d057f83c40dd0355533b5d6517.jpg a4b5b43ce3f56a174a92061cc8307b10.jpg

    Arrived home after a quick trip to Moree and back.. Overnighter :)
    To find a little package from the Fizzer Factory.. 2 off Zeal fork caps which fit perfectly.. So if anyone does happen to buy new Fork Tubes from @XCite Bikes make sure you have Original or aftermarket caps to suit the Zeal as your FZR250 caps will not fit.

    Super service from the Fizzer Factory... :) Where is the feedback button?

    I came home to an unexpected parcel, I hadn't ordered anything on eBay lately. Turns out it was my electric-assist bike... Well, that was what I ordered and paid a lot less than rrp for. This is what I got:

    I don't think it'll be as good on the trails as I hoped.

    Postie dropped off some Loctite Super Glue's for plastic's to me today, i got 1 bottle of 401 20g, and 1 bottle of 406 20g
    Bought them on ebay china for $5.23 for the 2x bottle's
    Not too bad considering there are ebay seller's that have it for $12+ per bottle, and is 1/10 of the price compared to local retailer's.
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Loctite...var=572082825747&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


    I also uploaded the Henkel / Loctite Plastic's bonding guide to the Resource's area

    My 1080P (yeah right) $30 endoscope finally arrived today... only took 2 weeks from Regents Park (25km away).
    Nice one Australia Post.. glad to see that the overnight deliveries from Melbourne are not the normal service we have all come to expect... :help:
    It appears to do what it says it will do.. I might get a chance to try it out on the weekend.. maybe have a look down the innards of the CB400F engine or my spare SRX250 engine..

    I am still waiting on my 20 litre drum of parts washer solvent.. again shipped from Sydney on Monday.. via Fastway Couriers.. still saying it is in transit.. so frustrating.

    Extreme close up.. not sure if the focus is adjustable or not... might have to read the instructions :lolsign:

    So... I got home after a quick drive to Molong and back (only 500km) for work because one moron insisted that he had the only Solar Irradiance meter in the company (used to trouble shoot Solar Pumping installations) for tomorrow morning and my Customer had it (in Molong) at around 2.30 and the little (90 litre) Blasting Cabinet I ordered on the weekend had arrived.. from Brisbane no less. Amazingly freight was included and this one seemed to be as good as the others in the same size...
    After unpacking it I took a few pics.. (shown below).
    When I ordered it I knew what I was buying.. I have researched them reasonably well and I was prepared to do the following..
    1 Go around all the seams with sealant to ensure it is well sealed..
    2 Add more foam tape to the lid to seal it..
    3 Attach my Workshop Vac to the outlet filter to remove the dust inside..
    So that will be my job for the weekend..

    I also tried my swing arm in there and it fits.. so that is a real bonus :)

    Looking at the garage.. I am going to move the Honda from the bike stand and move it into the main garage... (the boss isnt happy about it but she will get over it) until I am ready to start on it.. That will give me more space in there for the assembly process on the SRX... when it starts :)

    Yep, that is the one I have. I just unscrewed the base, all those screws inside, and siliconed the entire jointing surface. I replaced the lid with one that has a sheet of glass in it also. They are still dusty things, so I keep mine outside.

    This one has already been silicone sealed in the corners with foam along the sides on the bottom but I will run a bead of sikaflex along all the seams on the inside.
    The lid is flexible but hopefully draft seal tape will seal that.
    I need to find a fitting to go into the outlet filter so I can hook up my garage vac.
    But I will probably use it outside too. I might make a little base for it to sit on with casters.
    Interesting that it only takes 7.5kg of media. I need to get myself some media that isn’t too abrasive and leaves a good finish.
