    The sliders bolt on using the engine mounts so not solely on the engine... hopefully there will not be any tip overs...
    The CB400 doesnt have any "factory" wiring for heated grips, hence the aftermarket Oxford grips... I would just prefer them to be coming of a switched supply with a relay rather then wired direct to the battery... Right now if i was to forget to turn them off it would drain the battery as the Grips on mine dont have a Battery Saver mode... easy enough to change the wiring and that way when the ignition is turned off so are the grips.

    whites powersports do a set of hot grips with the controller built into the left grip, they can be wired straight to battery or to switched power and they have their own online fuse.

    Received SW motech racks and givi side cases for the 919. Took the gamble on a basically unknown forum users post but still got what I was after! Seller must own their own business, had a tracking label within 20 minutes of paypalling them.

    My zxr250a mantis is laid up with an electrical issue , I took it for a ride last weekend and it just cut out and my temp gauge went off the scale by a fair way, I wiggled the harness near the relay box and my temp went back down and it started , I decided it was safer to head home than temp fate , 3 more breakdowns before I made it home . I have found a spare harness and relay box which is coming to me next week.

    So today I figured it was time to reassemble the c model I have in the shop , I actually got this c model running for a lady about 3 years ago , her husband took another 2 years to paint the bike so when it came time to start it up , the carbs were a mess and she eventually traded it at a local shop on a ninja 300. I bought a big job lot of bikes from this shop and included was this ZXR. It was in a wee state , all fairings , tank, seat , carbs off , I replaced the plugs , stripped and cleaned the carbs , refitted the radiator and filled the coolant and it started up and sounds like a really nice motor , I am very stoked . I am missing airbox seals and a carb return spring , so @Frankster is sending me his spare seals and I’m sure I have the spring at work , this one will be up for sale once it is back together.

    Started taking the ZXR back to carbies today- ran out of time to race it fuel injected. Trying to put the coils back in and can’t figure out how they bolt down. Is this a coil spacer? It wasn’t in the coil bag and none of my videos clearly show… killing me here. F193FD64-4329-4122-948C-62DD40BBCB9E.jpeg

    Finally off the crutches, so decided to hobble out to the shed and start putting the Bandit back together. My 'Carer' helped me get it onto the work platform. This bike had a 'way too big' rear tyre on it that had bashed itself against the chain and become severely damaged. Which, was a real shame as it was within age and had plenty of tread to get through a VIC RWC.

    The front tyre wasn't great, so off to Pablos Tyres for some new rubber. After a 'wow' moment when the tyre technician confirmed the rear tyre was indeed over sized and dangerous, he set about putting a set of Diablo Rosso II's onto the rims. These sat in the corner while I sorted the carbs out and waited for some bits and pieces.

    Fast forward a month or so and it's Lockdown 5.0 in VIC and I can finally get off the couch.

    It's slow going, but keeping me busy. A few more bits and pieces and it should be ready for a RWC once lockdown is lifted.

    Used a tip I picked up from Millyard today! YSR carbs (working on 2) have been driving me nucking futs. New bowl gasket didn't clear up the leak around the bowl. Hit the bowl with some heat and pulled the vent out. hit it with 320 grit on a piece of glass until it came out flat. Hit the bowl with heat and reinserted the vent. Did this while waiting on gasket remover to do it's thing (on the mc22) and haven't gotten back to seeing if that bastard carb will actually hold gas.

    Thought I'd try to get a bit more done in the garage since I was making good progress this morning. tool case decided to part ways with the top half as it slid off of a box and dumped 1/3 of the sockets on to the floor and all of the loose spares I keep in it. I'd be mad but I spent $25 on that tool kit 20 years ago, back when Stanley was a somewhat quality tool company..

    Did some work on the other bike today. 2007 ZX10R. Did oil n oil filter 2 days ago, cleaned and oiled DNA air filter and replaced today, flushed rear brake fluid and gave the caliper a clean. Checked header bolts were still tight, havnt checked em since install. General inspection revealed a little coolant getting past some hoses, got new Samco hoses on order. Might start a thread on the ZX10 build from start if you guys are interested. Done a bit to it.
    Needed to get the kawasaki done so i can get the MC19 up on the lift and do a bit. Carbys flush, front brake line flush, bit of general inspection while im there.
