Tuesday

Been a while

Plenty of stuff going on round mine.

Rebuilt the racescooter and made it all shiny.


And then I go and crash it in the first practice of the year, writing off a brand new Arai in the process



Got another bike as well


100€ bike, owner couldn't get it running right. Few hours of work and it runs like a dream. It's a '92 Suzuki GSX 1100 G, 70k miles, shaftdrive, huge tank, perfect for touring.

Bit of sanding


Bit of paint


In between I had some time on the dyno with the 7/11. Never had it properly set up since first building it last year.





140+ at the wheel and counting. Have some work left and if all goes well, we should be close or over 150Bhp.

Friends were having a party in the UK so I thought it'd be a good laugh to turn up without telling anyone. Good way of finding out if 100€ can buy you a good bike.


400 miles, 4 countries and a ferry-crossing later


Some cool bikes out







 



And back home. Didn't miss a beat, didn't use any oil. I think I'll take this to the TT too.


(If you're wondering; yes, I am a Big Suzuki-fan)

Jappa bike heaven man, some killer examples in there . . . better a brand new Arai than a silly old head.

Red line was the final run. AF is still all over the place, but a lot better than when I came in.

What have you done to get 140bhp out of an 1100?

Very healthy motor, Exhaust craft bespoke racepipe, Factory advancer, 36cv's with K&N's. Have Dyna's to go on and I might start looking at headwork and different cams at some point.
