right, so 4 weeks since my last outing due to a Nurburgring trip, so itching to try out the 'rebuilt' engine.

 

Fuel tank strap fitted, and rather grubby fuel filter changes, and as a precaution a soft cut rev limiter is now installed in order to try and limit the meltdown of another engine.

 

Might be damp though, so revs shouldn't be an issue.

 

Bring it on !

Cheers.

Just getting used to all the extra grip off the yokes.

Gotta pedal fast enough to keep those pesky novas behind!

nope.

 

just need to cut off front, swap front subby, sort oil leak on engine, fit new front end and weld up the arches, and so on.

 

too cold and windy to crack on this weekend.
