My gsx1100efe

Made these for my 1230 EFE but changed them last year for more conventional 4 into 2 and I must admit the new ones are better for low down as Gixer1460 says but the side swept version did look good ;)

Only trouble I  find with hammerite is it takes ages to go off , and you have to leave it 24hours for every subsequent coat.  I like the halfords satin black myself , goes on lovely.

Cheers puddy  :)

I know where you're coming from with the drying issues, I've discovered after many resprays that hammerite loves heat, so I give the subject a good hiding with a heat gun and blast it several times after each coat, seems to work perfect. There again we all have our own methods to get there.

Black frames look cool on EFE's me thinks.:tu

Well , been busy over the weekend, luckily it warmed up , 9 deg c, toasty !

Rubbed down , primed and painted.

Put them all back together today with new seals , oil  and dust covers. 

Will refit them once I've sorted the loose fitting secondhand starcycle headers, more to follow on that :)

Well I've  been chipping away at the oil cooler problem, standard one runs right thru the starcycle headers. 

Found an old cooler in the shed , cut off the bsp fittings and had dash 6 weld ons fitted. Bought a cheap bracket kit on the bay and modded that a bit to fit . Finally bought a very nice oil cooler line kit , just had to spread the 180's a bit to fit.

Also bought some fittings for the lines into the block , and put it all together today , worked out very nicely.

very satisfying when you figure out a problem :tu

Yeah , just gotta make a bracket for the v&h meg , its actually a srteet meg with a n off set unlike the race ones which are dead straight. But now its all fully on there it actually runs quite nicely behind the brake pedal, more to come on that.

Cheers puddy  :)

Ordered some 70mm horns , the standard ones are touching everything even with the brackets reversed.

Put the front wheel back in today , one of the spindle clamp threads is u/s so just gonna get some stainless 60mm cap heads and nuts to get round that problem.

So , apart from the meg bracket very little to do to the efe now .

Luckily the katana chipped in today with a few little jobs to make up for that tho , lol

Fitted wadded baffle , new front brake light switch,  and  fitted the genuine sharks fins. 

Puddy  :)
