    Alpha 14s all fitted. Can't wait to try them out, when I finally get my other things. So much to do. IMG_0481.JPG IMG_0483.JPG

    Finally got around to sitting the CB400SF up on the bike stand, connected up the Gear Indicator to the ECU and programmed it going through the gears... no I have a working Gear indicator... only cost me about $25 from Ali Express too..
    I was going to take a run out to the Hume Weir today but unfotunately Work got in the way.
    Weather isnt looking too good for next few days either... bummer.

    Finally got the carbs on the MC19 sorted out. Threw them on and it ran on all four cylinders (yeah!) but it definitely wasn't right. Pulled the carbs back off and checked my work and found out that I set the pilot screws to 2 turns, not 2 1/2. Made all the difference in the world. Got them all synced up so now it's just a matter of putting the plastics back on.

    Not too shabby on the sync if I do say so myself.

    I set up my Zinc Plating kit last night... probably still a little cool to get the best finish but did a couple of items just to see how it would go.
    I forgot to take before pics... doh.
    This pic shows another identical bolt as well as the one plated... that was the first item and the amps were a touch high but it polished up OK

    A spacer from the front wheel of the SL125 and one from the rear wheel.

    Parts that will be more exposed will definitely get a better preparation but at least they are plated and protected.

    They came up pretty good , considering how they where in the first place.
    Keeping and using the O.E bolt's is the way to go.
    I was pretty lucky not needing to many new bolt's , but that zinc plating kit would have been very useful.

    And last one for the day... these are the brake arms from the SL125. The front one didnt come up as nice as I would have liked.
    Before and after shots. They were both wire brushed prior to the plating process.

    still working on getting the MC19 healthy. It's runs and revs freely but it wont start without a whiff of throttle and it won't idle until it's well up to temprature. It also hunts a little at idle once it's warmed up. Should I go richer or leaner with the mixture or should I be looking somewhere else?

    Recieved and fitted replacement mirrors to the GSXR250. These are Magazi brand from KiWAV.COM via Trademe. Because the mounting is slotted, they are a multi-fit. Lots of different adjustment as well in the arms. They were extremly well packaged with about four layers of bubble wrap and a nice personalised card. Only about 10 days from Taiwan. A happy customer! Booked in for its pre licencing inspection on Wednesday - nearly legal for the road.

    Did you try choke? I suspect lean the fuel, but the choke might give a hint.


    In other news, the plan was to finish the CBR 400 on Saturday, but I replaced the piston ring in the yz, went to a birthday party and rode the yz, instead. That bike scares me, as does any hint of a jump - flashbacks to mountain biking accident. I got enough confidence to corner a bit more, especially after a blast on the 85 (that was fun, not so far to fall). I did do some work to the CBR, got the choke and throttle assembly on after a little shortening of a cable outer. Now to plastic weld a patch and reassemble.
