Not bought a heater yet but as I’m an old skool tight bastard  :D so I thought I’d layer up and get a few hours in the garage again this afternoon 

Need to get the bearings out the cushion lever so left it on the rad in the kitchen for a few hours than heated it with my heat gun then started to use all my techniques to drive/pull the old bearings out. Took an hour and a half and all’s good ,just need to clean it up with some scotchbrite and get some new bearings.

Another job ticked offxD

Power valve controller cleaned,few other odd jobs done plus put some alloy sealer on the frame,ordered a H*C style rear brake reservoir which was cheaper than replacing the knackered hose and clips with Suzuki parts O.o

Repaired the harness clamp that fits to the frame with a Stanley knife,some isopropyl and a new sticky patch,a little job but satisfying to fix as the parts no longer available  xD

Final pic before I wheeled it back in the shed,nice to work outside for a change :tu
