another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Sunday, 7 February 2010

some you win, some you lose, all revved up about getting the engine back from the tuner's, lets get it bolted into the frame and go racing, bolt rear shocks in and stand back to admire, bollocks, the left hand shock is leaning in by 10mm at the swingarm end, measure, measure, measure, no way around it, must have been a friday afternoon job, the bottom shock mounting has been welded 10mm off centre, i've already fitted the new swing-arm bushes, the arm has been powder coated, double-bastard, need a new swing-arm [ later models are a lot beefier], or cut mounting off, re-weld and powdercoat the original, no way around it, got to do it or it will handle like shit.
