  1. I have always soaked pistons in gas oil (red diesel), works well But if you have oil drum style barbecue, you can try the heat and cool route as suggested by @joseph Good luck
  2. She's a beauty, you've done a grand job
  3. Sounds like your bike hates yamaha parts Seriously though as already said, if you can raise or drop the forks through the yokes you should find the point it stops folding in
  4. I still have my box of letter punches But just for sentimental purposes
  5. As has already been said, a Q plate doesn't have the stigma of 20 years ago and you don't get penalised by insurance, if anything it shows you have done things like right way!! Remember all insurance companies first thought is how can I get out of paying for this

  13. Same as others bit of tape round the filters till they ran OK Strangly only had the issue with my gsx models, gs models all ran OK without the tape
  14. It's looking cracking, you should be well pleased,
  15. Boyer bransden are basic, but they will do a solid job and last, just make sure they stay dry
  16. Can't argue with that!! But if it is oil tight, take the win
  17. My first port of call on the Gs was always spray a bit of carb cleaner on the rubbers to check for air leaks
