If anyone is thinking of putting the black wrinkle finsh back on a brake plate, dont buy the Hycote wrinkle finsh pant it is utter sh*te, followed the instructions to the letter and ended up with a gloopy gloss finish with the odd lumpy bit in it. I will be fetching it off in the morning and it can have a coat of satin black instead.

Chris..

Edit by MM; Your wish may be my comand, but it dosn't mean I do what I'm told!! Sorry, should be right now :oops:

Oh my, look at that glossy thing!
It'll be a shame to get her dirty!

On a side note, in the future when you have run things in, let us know of any misgivings about the trail tech speedo.
Whether they be good or bad.

Hi Everyone
Thanks for the complements and yes beat will like the blue I think. It will be ashame to get it dirty 2 many and the speedo is an Acewell the one I first got was better looking as it was about the size of the stranded one and black but was not suitable for + earth so they exchanged it for this one and I'm having trouble with wirering they say to use 2 bridge diodes and emailed a diagrame so I'll update when I get it sorted. I will add some words to the photo when I get the edit tag on the post, I don't know how to without it there so maybe the moderator could help <977

Edit by MM: You can only edit your own posts, so if you want to edit, either I have to put the picture into one of your posts, or I have to sign on as you (which is a pain). Rickard may know another way, maybe stick a post up that says something like "stick my pic here" and I'll then know where to stick it!! At least I got the right topic this time :grin:

Oh yes that's right...Acewell.
Am I loosing my short term memory?

And again, my trail tech experiance;
I was told it can be pos or neg...
It lives with the triumph mx in it's own neg ground seperate from all the original positive ground stuff.

Barry the bike is looking like a beauty!

Barry,
in the words of our infamous ex-fish & chip shop owner from Queensland: "please explain".
what machining is that?
and, i think i'm jealous - 1 month on, 1 month off, just not sure i could get through the month of being on. :roll: :lol:

Hi Steve
Yes she made great fish and chips so I'm told and that's about all, the Corillo rod is a bit larger at the big end and needs the crank oil scrapers machined as they just touch. The month on and off we have a caravan park just south of Sydney so I do one month with going home 2 days a week and my brother does the next month but he can't go home 2 days a week cause he lives in Queensland to fare to travel and my 2 sons work there so they do the other days so hope that explained the work condisions, not trying to be smart Steve just explaining the situation but the bike is brain therapy as the park is a very trying thing not like a job to go home then come back tomorrow sorry I'm rambling I'll stop now <931

Hi Steve having trouble finding a pipe and muffler so I will clean up the old ones and fit so I can register it and ride down to Vic for a visit :thumb
Hi Malc still sorting the air filter, I bought a standard one on eBay but it was to big so I'm trying to fit a after market foam one with the help from roadplough and his rubber bits but there's not much room between carbi and frame <201

this link should show a map, but you should use the zoom to show where in Victoria, in relation to Melbourne. and the final destination, Newstead Racecourse.
http://www.whereis.com/vic/newstead#session=NTE=
and more info from the clubs site @ http://www.bsa.asn.au/html/events/abr/index.html
the date for 2013 is provisional at the moment as this year it has been decided that it will be a 4 day event probably starting on Thursday 25th. April through to Sunday 28th.
basically, it's Thursday because it's a public holiday for ANZAC day and also, first in best dressed for sites, and Saturday is the "big" (not in distance - but 1000 brit bikes) run to Maldon. Sunday is "pack up and F' off day".
Newstead is in "the golden triangle" an area where the Gold rush in the 1820-40's was at it's biggest/best. there are towns in this area that are very welcoming to strangers and the interesting sites are to behold. the large regional/tourist centres of Bendigo and Ballarat can put on a good show for the tourist - Ballarat has Souveriegn Hill and the Bakery Hill memorial of the Eureka Stockade, the only time in Australia's history that the people stood up for themselves against the common enemy - the government.
take a couple of weeks off Barry and bring the missus down for a look around, you wont be disappointed.

I got hold of a new header and silencer from www.fecked.com twelve months ago. All chrome in the scrambler style. Looks a treat on the SS.

Speckled indeed, 4 domains on the same IP it seems, looks like all feken hacked. one of the other domain names I probably shouldn't mention here. Don't want to fek ep Barry's thread completely.

I've bought from their Feked.com site a few times and never had a problem with their speedy service.
Seen Feked on ebay recently though.
