Did you wire up your PC-8 yet? I'm going to attempt mine this weekend.....
I haven’t got one yet. Neat bit of kit which should make the wiring a bit easier to follow. That’s why electricians are so anal about making things clean and orderly, it makes fault finding and even doing a bunch more manageable. If you can, you should probably post up your work. I’m keen too see how it all looks mate.

So it’s been too long since I got anything done on the bike so here I am again. Bought the thing inside to a spare room while the shed is full of crap. Started rebuilding the forks but couldn’t get the bottom screw out to remove the spring. Even used an impact driver with a 6mm Allen key but but it didn’t move so I gave up on that bit.

So the shock rams? had some rust so I sanded them back a little, washed with ethanol and tried zinc electroplating after watching a few videos on YouTube. Not even sure I did it right but hopefully it did work so it doesn’t continue to rust. Then I put them back together and will get some oil into them soon

So decided to add a bit of leather to the front fork to see if it’s going to work with the brown seat. Will know tomorrow and will post an update

And finally for today, I made a parts vibrator which I first seen on ichiban moto. I have some parts in it at the moment so will see if it works tomorrow. Bit concerned as I don’t have any real rough agrigit. 50% sodium bicarbonate and %50 fine sand stuff leftover from blasting the frame. See what happens soon I guess

To remove the lower bolt: LEAVE THE LEG ASSEMBLED, so the spring holds the internals preventing them from spinning with the bolt. Another thing that can work is to jamb a broom or mop handle in a disassembled leg to hold tension on the piston. Then use the impact and socketed allen key. Easiest is to just do it right after draining and before loosening the triple tree clamps with the bike blocked up.

Put some valve grinding compound on the allen head socket. It will prevent the bolt from stripping out.
