Put in an order for some Titanium Bolts to my bike from England. Sadly this will be my last buy from England since now we have to pay toll and tax for everything since Brexit so it will be to expensive. Find other companys in Europe is my plan.
Also put in an order from Water Wetter since i only have water in cooling system due to Track Days and will only change to coolant during winter.

Oh, I am NOT happy with my €185 brake lines!
They needed two weeks to custom make my bespoke brake lines.
Motherfucker, please!
The ONLY line that fits right (but with a 1\4 twist) is the rear brake line.
109365


Clutch line two inches too long!

109366


The spacer for the Fronts is too small, and there is NO way to secure the other side!
The line on the right-hand side just flops the fuck around!
I'd say, aside from trying to fit them, they look Quality made!

So boring when you put money on it to get it custom made.
Can you fix it?

Not at the moment. :mad:
The front lines did not come off very nicely....
I would have to WAIT for them to make a new set!

Well, does no one do anything to their bikes?!?!?!? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Been on a bit of a cleaning mission today, which has cheered me up! However I do need to get the MOT booked so I can get out and ride it (like I stole it)!
Yep sure we all do a bit here and there ...... needed 2 new tyres for the MOT on the 400, noticed one of the wheel bearings had a bit of drag on it, so replaced them, looked at the bike on the lift and thought might as well drop the fork oil, looked a bit silvery on the final drain, so ordered up some new bushes and seals, waiting for them, thought it would make sense to drop the stem and check the bearings, all good, cleaned and repacked with grease, still waiting for bushes to arrive, so itchy spanner’s, had the air box off and plugs out, now plugs and filters on order, these V4s can be a PITA to work on the front pots, so coolant out and top rad off to get at the front plugs, bushes arrived, forks rebushed and rebuilt.
Just awaiting plugs to arrive Monday and all ready to bolt back together again, will take advantage of half the bike being in bits to get to the carb vacuum screws and balance the carbs, then finally will be able to put the wheels back on with some new shiny BT090s ready for the MOT.
Not sure how I ended up doing all that, when all I wanted was 2 new tyres :unsure:

was not today, but recently did oil and filter, and changed the coolant as I have no idea when it was last done - supposed to be every 3-years but can't be sure so will get it back in line with service schedule.

Man, I am just DONE with Goodridge! I have to be ready for a Club Ride on Saturday, and the fuckwits are dragging their feet!
They send me a flurry of emails, demanding all kinds of info, right away.
And then nothing!
Four emails, back and forth yesterday before lunch. Since then, nothing!
If I could do it and get away with it, I'd burn their fucking offices to the ground!

But, at the moment, I'm still stuck with a Liter-Bike that has no brakes, and a Club-Ride scheduled for Saturday.
It is going to take a MAMMOTH sized miracle to sort this out in time!

So, I ended up buying a set of TRWLucas lines and they fit, so I made it to the Demo today.
I will be posting up some pics of German Hondas later....

Demo = Demonstration.
German Politicians are trying to forbid motorcycle riding on Sundays and Religious Holidays.
6,000 people showed up in Nurnberg today to tell them it's a bad idea.

Bike is being prepared for Track Days 15-16 May, 19-20 May and 28 May this Month.
Have changed almost every fluid, new chain and sprockets, renovated gear box and new pistons.
Only minor things left to do :)
