Is there a what have you done to your bike today thread on here???

Had a quick search and did'nt see one....only searched in the SRAD section, as thats all i'm concerned about.
Did'nt want to revive my old build but wanted to share and see what others have done, rather than seeing posts of people asking questions of issues they are having.
If there is then

Anyway, here's what I done.
Awhile back I got a replacement front fairing, as mine was broken.
Painted it and was quite happy with the results until I laquered it....for some reason, the tank looked textured, rather than smooth as before
Put it down to a faulty canister.
Today I sanded it down again and repeated process but with a fresh can of laquer.
Put the decal Scooby601 very kindly sent me on the front as well to finish it off(Thanks again mate!), also put the decals on the tank that i'd had missing for ages.
Here's the pics;







I know they don't quite match but doesn't bother me right now.

So what have you guys done?

Looking good mate...Not feeling the love for the headlight cover, have you even broken a lense?

I looked at the bikes as I put the shopping in the fridge...bit of a mess in there eh? Big fight for sitting rights amongst all the other domestic crap in my "man space"......

Re: Is there a what have you done to your bike today thread on here???

rippled paint when you put laquer on can be repaired easy enough. All you need to do is build up the coats of laquer, leave it to set and then flat it with 2000 wet and dry and mop it.

You can do the same to repair scratches on bodywork. All you do is fill the scratch with paint and build up the laquer until it rises above the rest of the panel and then flat back with wet n dry and mop. This i have done time and time again with car stonechips.

Yesterday I changed the clutch, cleaned up some of the panels ready for some new stickers, added a maxton damper and new tax disc holder. I still have a tailtidy and cbr 954 tail-light to fit as long as I pass my test this week.

What doesn't match?? If its the gold just let me know.

Don't bother changing the forks on the 400 ^^ I've spotted your problem

Absolutely nothing. Forgot to borrow an impact wrench for the stuck engine bolt so will have to wait until tomorrow morning, then is a couple of days to get everything back together and test it all works

just got my airbox from mr. Sradiator, put an order in for some new throttle pull/release lines, few fairing bolts, K&N air filter, oil hose. put it all together and it runs beautifully. Just took her for the first spin of the season yesterday and gave her a goood pat on the tank, let her know she is still loved.

Finished de greasing my frame and swing arm, organised for my trip to the powder coat guy tomorrow. Broke down a 07 gsxr 750 from the neck back(that's all I have of it) cool to look at the srad parts and compared to the newer version.

Re: Is there a what have you done to your bike today thread on here???

Yep, am putting a new triple tree on, so I need to remove the old bearing and put in new ones.
I just need to get the old bearing ring of the triple, am borrowing a welder tomorrow, and then I will give the ring a few welds so it will expand, so I can get it off the triple
Oh and I put the rearsets on again, had them off to ultrasonic clean them, so they are nice and shiny for the new season :P

Re: Is there a what have you done to your bike today thread on here???

And here's the reason why I am changing the triple.
crashed the bike 2 years ago, I never got around to change the tweaked triple until now, or I had the time, but the bike were riding fine, so I just said wtf

I think Scooby is telling you to anodized the Factory Pro engine covers that I sent you in gold.

No no no no no!

This morning I have polished my pistons (of the braking kind................honest ) and won the war on stuck engine mount bolts
