    Rode it work for the first time in a month! Good to be back on two wheels after spending most of the last 4 weeks looking after my better half (and our daughter) while she recovered from minor surgery.

    Thanks, it is indeed. Appendicitis and an umbilical hernia just meant keyhole surgery, so she's almost back to full health now! :)

    So I've been trying to clean up the shed (you can stop laughing now) and was looking for more space as I shuffle things around. Then I had a bright idea: maybe the marauder is a simple fix? From the info I had, it could have been jumped timing, head gasket gone or head bolt pulled/loose for possible easy fix. Not so lucky.

    Yeah, we did laps between pie in the sky and the bridge. Saves going back and finding somewhere to turn around, and its the best bit.

    Keen to go one weekend?

    Bought an across for wrecking , I didn’t really need it as I have a fair bit of across stuff, but it seemed in good nick bar the panels so I grabbed it. The key was missing , the stator cover was necked, bent handle bar etc

    Spent today playing and after replacing the fuel pump she fired up and sounded quite good , replaced the stator cover with One from a bandit , replaced bent handle bar and broken clutch lever.

    I found some old fairings and have fitted them , she is almost back together. I will get a key cut on Monday

    Anyone chasing a cheap acrosss ?

    I stroked my 400 and stared unhappily out the window into the pouring rain.

    Went and rode the old pacific hwy again, stopped to have a chat with the photogrophers and other riders... lost my p plate again, found another in the ditch behind from where the photo was taken. People crash there a lot, there's all sorts of goodies hiding in the scrub :)

    spent the morning reassembling the carbies from the Across.. and I then find the dreaded worn slider issue on one of the carbies... so I cant start it up today... grrr. Still Carbies are back on the bike, pilot jets are set at 1.5 turns as per factory standard settings.
    I fuel filter is on the fuel line now so should be no blockages in the carby.
    Started sorting out the fairings to go back on... should have it all buttoned up ready to sell during the week (I hope).
    Time to make room in the Garage...:)

    Yesterday I picked up this mc22 with spare motor, clutch kit and paddock stand for $500
    IMG_1515804318586.jpg
    It's not mine, though. I spent all my money on a pair of Acrosses...

    So I worked on a workbench to work on one of the Across. But it was taking to too long. So I fired up the zzr600, replaced the chain guard organised for a buyer to view in Gin Gin. Then dragged the red Across into the shed to see if it would start. After a bit of trying, spraying things in the intake I got it to fire and "run" sort of. But decided to stop trying when I noticed to pool of fuel growing on the floor. No shortcuts, got to clean the carbies. And the brakes, they aren't releasing properly.
