Xylol

Funny stuff.

I know they use it in some permanent markers.

Get some Alfoil onto those crusty chrome parts. It cleans them up well enough for a small time.

Thanks bud.  Hows thing in the land down under?  Did you get your new shop all buttoned up?

Cool, but I plan on riding her sooner than that.   ;)
Rach is a Histology technician in the lab.  Shes pretty knowledgable about these chemical things.
Well, just for reference I taught Material Science at Temple University for 5 years. ;)

Going well where I am. Been out riding with a few blokes from work.
The Shop is nearly done. Just a few things outside and a few more storage shelves inside to go. Ohh and an exploded Virago to put back together.

I don't quite move at the pace that you have been with this build!
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

Nice.  Are you in warm weather most of the year...or looking at a cold winter coming soon?

Best for me to strike while the irons hot.  If I loose my momentum on a project.  Sometimes its hard for me to re-motivate myself.  And I can tend to start putting things on the back burner....forever.    :P

It is warm most of the year here. We are coming into the "colder" months but it never really get a cold here. The coldest it gets is 45f in the dead of night. Most days are around 65f-70f.

So all year riding season if you can cope with the 90% humidity at 100f.

A pretty decent morning.

Fresh Orings and floats in carbs so now they are 100%.



Cleaned connections, installed new flasher.





Fresh shoes



Started caliper.  Compressor made easy work of it.  Forgot to order the pads.  ARGH!   ;D 
Time for shower, brunch and a nap. 
Then I will get her cleaned up and back together.
