After 8-9 years in hibernation it now runs - changed coils and cleaned carbs.
Wheels off being refurbished. Rear brake master cylinder cut off with the angle grinder and now ready for rebuild with caliper. Front guard also cut-off as rusted solid. Forks refurbished and clip-ons re-fitted. Ready to modify to single head-light and bikini fairing.
Now fuel pisses out of the carby inlet T pieces - Fowlers to the rescue again.
here's the latest status - new bikini fairing will be fitted once I make-up some brackets.
I have removed the airbox so that I can use the space to tidy-up the rear end. I plan to fit pod filters. The manual says the main jets should be 115 but mine are 120 already. Maybe the baffles were removed from the exhaust by a previous owner. Anyway, I've read that 118 to 120 main jet is OK for pods. Does anyone have any advice on this?
