So this happened.


Was waiting on my mate who is slowly buying this thing to decide on the tank colour and come over and finish painting it.
We had stripped it two weeks before and she was starting to get a little crusty. So on with the clear coat until we get around to it. Bloody shed is taking to long to be built.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

I sat and stared at mine for a bit and the spare motor beside it. Thought long and hard about a 360 or 400 transplant. Pull apart the spare and see if it's standard bore etc etc.

Bought a warrior 350 stage II cam for $80 usd instead. I just want to be able to do the speed limit in the mountains without the full moto gp tuck lol.

Changing directions is good Brodie. Even if it's just looking the other way.

I bought a new tank, it is red and only has 2 holes in it. One for fuel in and one for fuel out. Much better.


Also bought a new tyre. Much less slippery now.

Yay... I low sided on the way home today. I was pissed off after a bad night at work and took a corner too quick and too low. Foot peg and muffler caught the road and it spun put from under me.

Minimal damage, need a new brake lever, straighten the rear brake lever, replace the muffler joint and she will be right. Bit of road rash on the muffler and the case. Ohh well... I need a taller daily.

No post-crash updates?  That's not good.  At least you've been posting in other threads.

I'm curious as hell about the hydro clutch conversion - I've got a great combo of rheumatism and arthritis, and cable is going to be a pain in the arse, long-term.  On the RXS100 it's fine, on the GPZ305 it's a right twunt.  So - what happened with the convo?  How bad was it?

A lot of people comment
that they don't like what they see
I tell them to go f*** themselves
because this bike's for ME.

Ohh haha yeah she is fine. I ride her to work most days of the week.

Didn't end up going with the hydro clutch but they are very easy to do providing you can make brackets. The length of the rod is a bit long for the SR.

Here is a pic to prove she is ok.

Thanks, it's stock lol. The old tank rusted out.
