Are you using a washing soda (sodium carbonate) solution and a sacrificial steel anode? This method works pretty well.

Another few hours on the RGV today,rad and hoses fitted ,pv cables fitted and set up,oil pump feed adjusted and even stuck some power on to check the pv actuator worked.

Neutral light not working so that’s a job for another day.

Sunburnt head today :) took the dodgy leaking fork leg out ready to fit a new seal at the weekend.

Fixed a few electrical gremlins -indicators now working,although one of the bullet connectors is knackered so needs replacing.

Sorted the non working neutral indicator,cleaned the switch and refitted with a new o ring and all’s good.

Test fitted one of the pipes before sticking it back in the shed.Roll on next weekend, nearly time to fill fluids and get her kick started for the first time in 2 years...9_9

How does the inside of your tank look now, down by the fuel tap pickup?

The orange rust is mostly gone,just a little bit of staining to the area,I plan to give it another few hours when I’m home next

Got the pipes fitted today,temp filled the system with water just in case of leaks.

Connected the aux tank stuck a litre of premix in just to be on the safe side and it took more than 20 kicks but she’s alive .

Ran up to temp to check for leaks,found a couple and sorted them,even got her to tick over without the air box on :)

Happy days loads still to do but she sounds awesome and smells even better

On the last few jobs now:), new cushion rubbers for the speedo,headlight seal ,top fairing,screen and indicators back on.

Derusted fuel tank back on today to,stuck  5 litres of fuel in to check for leaks and thought sod it let’s see if she starts,3 kicks and ring a ding ding:banana:

Got some tick over and sticking at revs issues to sort but shouldn’t be to difficult to sort.

If the rain holds off tomorrow then I’ll bleed up the brakes,then a quick road test maybe.

Bled up the back brake adjusted the gear linkage then a quick run up the road and back today just to see if all’s ok,as the MOT is booked for Friday.

Wont really pull low down and gets bogged down at low revs,think it needs a few miles on it before I start jetting for the pipe,plus may still need a zeeltronic to get the power valves dialled in properly.

Mot pass first then some miles to run in the top end and the brakes then I’ll start fine tuning
