    Many discs have a 4.5mm minimum thickness and are 5mm when new.

    Run your fingers up and down the disc... if you can feel a lip at the top and bottom, and if it feels uneven in the centre, replace the disc.

    Hmmm ok thanks for that. The rear disc is shot while the fronts don’t have a lip they are almost at minimum spec so looks like I need to get a full set

    Hmmm seems front discs are hard to find... I flatly refuse to use waved discs.. I hate that look.
    I can find FZR400 discs on Ali-Express and the rear disc but not FZR250 3LN fronts.. GRRRRRR

    The only issue with all of those are that the FZR250 3LN discs are 282mm OD where the FZR400 are 298mm. I would need to check the mounting dimensions as well but is there enough clearance in the standard FZR caliper to take the extra 8mm these discs would need?

    Ok, sorry i never even looked at that,
    a 298mm disc wont fit, the spring steel anti rattle shim's in the calipers wont allow more than about a 4mm bigger disc

    hmmm looks like I might be forced into using the horrible wave discs or shell out over $400 for metaldisc items.. I need to re-measure and maybe not be quite so fussy lol

    My FZR still has the original discs ... Ive no idea of the specs as Im not presently at home but they have been fine for the years Ive had the bike .... they certainly stop u in a hurry and nearly throw u out of your seat if u overdo it ..... I would rebuild/kit the master cylinder before anything else on mine

    The only thing I do with older discs is clean them with a wet steel wool soap pad to remove the glaze

    I guess the fronts would be ok for a bit yet but the rear would need a new one.

    Yes.. remeasured the fronts and they should be be fine.. the rear has a big lip and will need changing but that one is easy.. and relatively inexpensive.

    I hung Christmas decorations. Apparently I'm doing it wrong. But if this is wrong, maybe I don't want to be right...

    I havent been happy with the wheel chock on my little fold up trailer and have been deliberating on which one to get to replace it.. I decided this morning on the one I wanted.. I will need to drill some new fixture holes into the trailer but that is easy.
    I also have some 300mm Anchor Track to mount so it should be pretty easy to load a bike and tie it down when I am finished.
    All I need now are some decent Motorcycle straps rather than the "general purpose" ones I have that are around 5 metres long :)

    Picked this mc22 up on Sunday , advertised as an apprentice mechanic had a go and it won’t run.

    9BF1A7B3-A870-47A9-8B1C-FAF47B0EE3AA.jpeg

    Tank was off, air box was off , one spark plug lead was off as well as the bellypan

    I thought I’d have a quick play , so I hooked up the aux tank and the jump pack and she turned over but wouldnt start. I have it a bit of throttle and she fired on 2 , a little more coaxing and she roared into life on all 4 , turns out some one loosened off the idle adjuster, once I set that back to where it should be, I have gave her a clean and reassembled her

    This is exactly the same as my first 250 road bike, bought back some great memories. She purrs like a kitten and rides really well

    Good score. Sounds like one of the "I've had it with this piece of ****. I'm gonna sell it" bargains.

    Had a 'moment' on the way home from work on the ZXR, getting a bit excited through the roundabouts as you do and the front tyre said NOPE decided to let go for a split second as I got on the throttle. Time for new tyres.
