  1. A wee health issue has stopped my racing plans this year,on a waiting list to get fixed so lost my mojo with the race bike but thought I should get my finger out and do a bit in prep for next season.Having the frame strengthened and the swinging arm modified so needed to get it dismantled.Only took 2 hours from start to finish took longer to tidy up afterwards,bloody knackered now Pictures of the slabby in kit form
  2. Found another pic @clivegtonot quite the same these were £95 last time I checked
  3. Looks similar to the Team Classic Suzuki Blandit seat unit,think that was a copy of the RGV one.When I raced in the series I’m sure Highfibre supplied them
  4. Not a lot of folk do down pipes for these bikes off the shelf,Delkevic do bandit systems so may do something if you only want link pipes and an end can give these boys a call https://a16roadnracesupplies.co.uk/product/exhaust/?model=gsxr-750-slingshot they did me some link pipes and end cans for my 1100K
  5. Engines ready and looking like new
  6. Coils and ht leads arrived thanks @Josephanother bit of the jigsaw gathered
  7. I use NRP carbs regularly if its the same company based in Manchester UK? They've always answered my emails and never let me down for rebuild kits
  8. @TonyGeehere you go a couple of old ones she’s buried in the shed with race kit on top of her
  9. Not much happening with this old girl but nipped out on the smoker today and after visiting 3 post offices managed to find someone who knew what they were doing.She’s now registered historic and zero tax paid,just need to sort a few jobs on her and she might be back on the road this summer I’ll stick her in the queue with the other non running projects she’s number 3 on the list
  10. What bike is it for? You can buy end can repack kits on eblag,Fuel and Delkevic make them and probably a few others to. A16 Road and race in Lincoln will probably have an end can that will fit,I’ve run them on 2 race bikes and they pass noise testing no problem with or without the baffle fitted. They will mod existing cans that they sell if you need any adjustments to, they’ve done it for me when my link pipe wasn’t quite the right size and a tight enough fit.
  11. @Paulmforgot about that version Still got your old bits in the shed
  12. I’ve got some in my road slabby and will be having some in my race slabby once I’ve saved up some cash
  13. I can confirm Maxton still do them I think it’s an SD20 or 25 cartridge kit as I rang them a couple of months ago to enquire about my K,if you email them they’ll send you the spec sheet and prices
  14. Air in the tyres and fired her up ready for a ride tomorrow just to make sure alls good. Brakes need another bleed after last years rebuild but are ok once pumped
  15. Next part of the upgrade list to include the following Maxton fork cartridges Couger red race clutch More modern radial front brake M/C Then maybe a 300 kit The lists the easy bit need to raise some funds first
  16. Not started or rode the smoker since last July so dragged her out and took a couple of plug swaps to get her running right. Fitted some NOS mirrors that I got off a mate over the winter pretty cheap to replace the shit Chinese copies Air in the tyres then a short blast to warm her up and stick some fresh fuel in,forgot about the grin factor still lifts the front wheel on the throttle with my lump on it New shock feels great even on the dodgy back roads.
  17. Stoke and Cambridge via the Far East somewhere still good quality I remember when we referred to stuff as Jap crap. I’ve got pipes on my smoker made in Thailand also top quality I guess it’s all in the design,manufacturing and quality assurance processes these companies use
  18. I previously raced in the Classic Suzuki Blandit Challenge, black widow were a series sponsor and most bikes ran their systems,well made,decent power and robust even when crashed plus not too expensive either.Most bikes produced an arm wrenching 70+bhp when running the full system with no other mods other than jetting.I think they’re made in Cambridgeshire Uk unless they’ve moved production overseas.I’ve run a black widow system and Delkevic both made in Blighty
  19. I’ve rebuilt a lot of forks and older boat anchors RWU forks have plastic preload spacers as well as more modern upside down Suzuki model forks The holes are for the pins in the spring compressor for detaching the adjuster from the damper tube
  20. Did it on my 600 race bike so assume the 1200 will be much the same
  21. On my H model it’s how your picture shows assume that is an F model frame as mine has 2 bolts is the captive nut at the lowest point?
  22. The main part the headlights fit to? If so they should have captive nuts on the stay and go inside the fairing if not this then any pictures to show the issue?
  23. Looks bloody lovely Tom
