Time to sort the crappy brakes and front end so forks are coming out and the brakes need a fettle, want to get this sorted before track day season next year.

Got some spare slingshot wheels so plan to stick them in with some modern rubber to see if that sorts the handling, tedancy to wallow through corners.

Also got some spare Nissin callipers off a slingshot that I might rebuild and fit with some newer discs

Will keep the original wheels for road use and the odd ride out in the summer, that's the plan anyway....upgrades on the cheap:D

Track day at Donny today should have been on the blandit but it won’t behave so took the slabby instead,practice is practice at the end of the day.

She ran like a dream and the Maxton forks are ace,had loads of brake fade last session and ended up heading into the gravel trap at Redgate corner managed to keep it upright and rejoined the track to finish the session  :)
