It's been cleaned more than it's been ridden this year. That'll soon change.

I had some black screen bolts on before. I'll see if I've still got them.

Lots still to do on the bike but it's getting there.

Ditch the mirrors and indicators if mainly a track bike.

What else is in the plan ?

Front suspension refreshed, new headers, link pipe, ECU flash, change the crash bungs, get some rearsets, a few more bolts and tired looking bits need replacing, the front wheel needs replacing as well.

I'll be using it on the road so I'll keep the mirrors, but I might buy some different ones if I can find any UI like.

Yep, a full system is on the radar as well. I won't be doing that until after summer, so I'll have some money in the bank and keep my eyes open on the racer forums to see what comes up for sale.

Balls.

The bike rattled then died on the way to Mikes. I suspect the CCT failed. No idea if that's the case or what the damage is. Mike will take a look next week and give me the good or bad news.

Fingers crossed its not too terminal, did you try and turn it over on the starter afterwards Kwacky, and if so, how did it sound? Spinning too fast can be a bad sign....
