Gidday,

I'm keen to start this bike, but with the wrong handlebars that came with the bike and the cables/controls not reaching etc, plus the PO has still not sent me the keys, original bars, clutch cable plus side covers etc, its a little difficult to fire up the engine, would love to here it run, that's if it runs :shock:

Gidday Fellas,

What bloody winter vortex!! was meant to be some sort of freezing weather blow by this weekend but I never felt a thing in the workshop :?

Gearbox removed today for preventative maintenance plus I am right there and just as well because the spline although in very good shape was dry with slight surface rust showing etc, I quickly fixed that with new Honda Moly then I cleaned up the flywheel housing and removed the resident spider and his extended family, plus I serviced and cleaned the clutch arm and bearings etc then re-installed with using anti-seize copper grease and torqued it all back up, oh and I also hit the outside casing of the gearbox with a small wire wheel and WD40 which brought it up like new again so next the engine casing will be getting the treatment back I have to find some smaller wire wheels for the job but the process is very easy..
Many thanks and I post when some new happens.. Cheers
