Yesterday put a deposit down on a 19 plate Kawasaki Z900RS , part ex'd the Scrambler.
Post up a photo when you get the chance?
Unfortunately , it will be a couple of weeks before it's ready , I will post pics when I get it .
Took my £300 shitbox for MOT. Passed as well with just advisory on rear pads noisy. That’s another wedged in the garage… no more room in the inn !!
Sorting out replacement bearings for a big bore eccentric hub. The needle bearing (SKF RNA 4910.2RS) is easy, the double cage roller bearing (SKF BAH 0175 or SKF VKBC 20199) however, is a little more tricky to find competitively priced. Found a great web site, 123bearings.co.uk but they are actually in France and their bearings are shipped from France sans VAT. Can’t be arsed with that. Local Brammer, bless them, are doing a bit of leg work and getting back to me. Andy
Sorned the Panigale. It didn’t get much use last year and even less this year.
Next year I’m taking it on the pilgrimage to Jerez with Uncle Bazzer.
Went for a little test ride - wow!
Whilst I was pootling in the garage tidying draws and putting the accumulated spares in bike specific boxes, I decided to put a collection of crusty, used Brembo brake caliper bits into soak in some Bilt Hamber wheel cleaner. It’s witchcraft, the spring plates and pins cleaned up really very well. Alright, I had get creative with some of the corrosion on the pins but once passivated again, that’s saved two sets for the Multistradas and one for the Diavel. Andy
Don’t,..please …I’m seriously trying to resist buying one of these
Superb bike and good discounts to be had right now; I'm tempted but am waiting to try the KTM 1290 SDR Evo...
Although it’s wet and miserable out there I’m going out for a couple of hours on the Scrambler
Thought about going out on the SS but it’s too wet and miserable
This any use? https://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/Bearings/c3/index.html
Hi Andy, if you want you can send them to me here in France, and I'll organise sending to you there for cost. Just to help out. Dm me if you need.
Know them well but decided to use a local stockist. Thank you though. Andy
That’s really kind of you Grant and much appreciated. Turns out the manager of my local bearing stockist is an X-Diavel nut and he’s sorting me out for a special price. Cheers, Andy
Took all of 10 minutes to disassemble, clean and then fit a new piston and seal kit to my spare Multistrada clutch master cylinder. Longest job was leaving the new piston and seals to soak in the assembly fluid Andy
Pulled pistons out of a set of calipers. From a trike...
Took 2 hours, do they ever use the front brake on one of those three wheeled death traps?
Well I went out (just got back 30 mins ago). Got piss wet through. Stuff is now in the airing cupboard drying off.
Called in to Ducati Manchester though for a chat and a coffee
The weekend will be for cleaning the bike and my gear I think
Took my 848s for its mot
Nice day for it.
