Yeah fingers crossed. Yes I take your point but I have just bought a new rear shock from them as well as fork springs and all seals etc, best part of £600 if I stanchions too that would have been more than I paid for the bike!i'm shocked that someone who is in the business of selling you things told you that you would have to buy their things.
those look great. so long as the seals still remain in contact, there should be no issue
I completely agree.It is a shame that some companies seem to determine 'serviceable limits' as a means of securing income rather than offering a frank assessment of remaining life. I think the parts you've pictured will give you thousands of miles of trouble-free performance. Spend your dosh on something more rewarding!!
Gosh, that looks like a lot of work. If it's any help I have a search on Ebay for Fireblade fairing parts, and whenever something new comes up,It’s Done! She is reduced to a pile of filthy neglected parts. I need to start a shopping list of replacement bits that can be on order while I go through the process of cleaning and painting what I can. I need to make a plan of what I want to do with the engine. The bike ran well before I stripped it so I don’t want to go mad with the engine but I need to decide what is worth doing, carbs cleaned and set up properly and get the engine to someone to check the valve clearances etc. Any other must do’s while I’m there?
Thanks 😊 I was going to buy a set of Chinese fairings and was thinking black but I have just won a new front fairing to replace my damaged one, it’s in pretty good nick Just needs a respray so I may stay with the OEM Red and get the whole set re painted. I’m pretty sure it will be one of the below!great work so far..... much more satisfying doing it yourself....
I feel your pain on the costs, i dread to think how many bikes i could have bought for what i've spent on mine over the years but to me it's worth every penny....
I may have missed (apologies if i have) but what colour scheme are you going with?
mine started out as the black version.....Thanks 😊 I was going to buy a set of Chinese fairings and was thinking black but I have just won a new front fairing to replace my damaged one, it’s in pretty good nick Just needs a respray so I may stay with the OEM Red and get the whole set re painted.
