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

Friday, 3 February 2012


never really happy with the footpegs, the more i looked at them the more i disliked them, something more 'traditional' needed m'thinks, got the stock set up and knurling tool on the vice and cut grooves into them every fifteen millimetres, got some engineering nylon stock from the newark 'jumble to turn up a couple of 'slider's' to hammer into the end's, [we got pulled up by an over enthusiastic jobsworth scrute at the last snetterton race meeting on the mz for not having them fitted so best be on the safe side, dangerous ended up shelling out twenty quid for a pair off the spares van so i could race, he's still bitching about that eighteen months down the line], i made a service plate up to mount the roughed out gear change pedal, makes it easier to mill up, got to get three six mm stainless female rosejoints and some six mm stainless roundstock from the local stockholders to make up the linkages for the gearchange and brake pedals, expensive, but worth it for the positive action you get on the levers and certainly cheaper than a blown engine through a sloppy gearchange....................
