    Yes. I should be getting there sometime Thursday. Can you store a bike at your place if I buy something in the Newcastle area? And, I don't mean outside in the yard.

    Put the carbs back on the ZXR for Tamworth VJMC National Rally. I think these rubbers might have been sitting in my carb drawer too long. @maelstrom is there a way to "shrink" these?

    Linkin just brought up the same issue with me which is very odd. Only ever had one mould. Though I will sort it out, for now I would suggest try a bit of contact cement on the carb side.

    Thanks Blair. I've used these kits before (not the ones in the picture) and I don't recall them being oversized. All of these seem to have an issue on the RHS. I will cut and glue as recommended by group.

    Finished the ZXR250 for VJMC Rally next week. Front end was scary under braking (porpoising). The good doctor suggested checking rotors for warping. He was on the right track. Turns out the bike had picked up some moisture while sitting around doing nothing and the RHS floating disk had decided to behave like a solid unit due to rusting between the inner disk and the brake rotor. Cleaned this up as best I could. Test ride showed there is still a little bit of porpoising, but nothing like before. I have a new set of wave front disks, but want to keep the bike as close to factory spec as possible for VJMC event. See you in Tamworth.

    Started back on the SRX today... sorted out some bits and pieces in the Garage and then attacked the frame to get out the old headstock bearing cups. Obviously Yamaha didnt expect anyone to ever want to get them out so they didnt put any reliefs in so you can tap them out. I had to bring the Dremel into action... they slice easily so it didnt take too long.
    But eventually the 38 degree heat got to me so the pool looked to be a good option :)
    Cooler tomorrow so we will see what I can get done.

    Thanks Phil. Looks better in the pic than in real life, but it'll do. @Linkin you will get to see and hear the megacycle exhaust if you're at the drags in Gunnedah. I'm leaving this bike in Tamworth and coming back to ride it at the drags.

    the good doctor looked at the fzr.cooling problem due to fan not coming on andsome small bubbles in radiator. stator and rectifier not working.after gunnedah drags another head being fitted.if it blows at the drags might run the cbx supersport but really want to compete on a 250.

    You don't need the stator or the RR for drag racing as long as your battery has charge you'll be fine. Overheating shouldn't be an issue either. Just start it and run it.

    Trouble is with no recharging of the battery and with headlights on and fan running continuously I only got 13 minutes of running time before battery lost power to run engine, so needs to be recharged. Could run without lights, but still need the fan to stop the over heating. Still has to do some more miles on the road to run the engine in.

    Well I am waiting for the Argon regulator and adaptor for my TIG so I can start to play with it before attacking the SRX frame with it so I decided to have a look at the rear shocks on the CB400.. or more specifically the LHS rear that is close to the chain... The chain guard has been cut up (butchered) to clear the bottom of the shock and when I took the shocker off I found out what the grinding noise was when rolling the bike along (no I havent ridden it ).
    Seems these shocks are not meant for the CB400 lol. The chain has done a very nice job of grinding away the bottom spring perch that is what is used to adjust pre-load.

    Glad I bought those new shocks... they clear the chain easily, so now i just need to find another chain guard.

    I also took the tank off... seems the lovely wasps nest didnt bother the coil pack as it ran fine..

    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_119f.jpg

    I also checked on my exhaust headers to try and see if they were originals.. they dont appear to be double skinned down pipes so I am guessing they are not original plus there is a large hole in one of the headers near the head.. not sure if it shows up too well in this pic

    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_11a0.jpg

    Maybe I will do some more tomorrow as it is too hot out there today... well too steamy at least...
