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

Managed to do a bit in between fitting new rear discs and pads to her indoors car todayO.o.

New bearings fitted to the cushion lever and cleaned up a rusty bracket ready for painting,a bit of progress just not fast enough :)

Painted a few more bits today,and got the swingarm back in,can’t finish it off as I need a new rear shock as mines fookedO.o

Cant decide whether to put the white wheels back in or the original silver ones,so stripped off the old tyres and removed the seized bearings.

Ordered all the parts I need for the spare wheels and rear caliper rebuild,some good savings reckon I saved a couple of hundred quid off full price in the Suzuki sale:tu

Cleaned the chain and refitted tonight,painted a few more bits and popped on the new rear brake line,day off tomorrow so hope to get some all day shed time once the boss goes shoppingxD

New clutch lever and lh switch gear fitted, oiled all the cables that aren’t getting replaced.

Refitted the footrests with the proper bolts even managed to fix the dust cover on the ignition switch that was stuck open :)

Fitted a HRC style reservoir for now until I can sort something better and fitted the clipons

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
