Makes a nice change to get some sun although the CBR has run great through winter. 44k miles clocked up now so just run in.

All Technical Issues / Forks seals
« on: July 29, 2016, 21:38:39 PM »
Bike failed MOT on forks seals yet again, not just misting but dripping down the fork leg,its only had the last ones replaced 12 months ago (1500miles) Anyone else had this or is it just a one off?  The last seals were nos so perhaps had hardened with age but sorted now so hopefully another 12 months of riding this great bike.

The weathers getting better but still had the heated grips on 40%.  A ride out in the Yorkshire Dales, Phenygent in the distance.

All Technical Issues / New downpipes
« on: February 05, 2015, 20:57:42 PM »
Just ordered some used downpipes off ebay usa, they have come off a 88 cbr1000 so hopefully should fit straight on, they look to be in great condition and all in with shipping and import tax come to £100.
Fingers crossed they fit. Just a week shipping time.

All Technical Issues / Rear mudguard
« on: November 29, 2014, 16:33:27 PM »
Ive started to do one or two jobs on my new bike (ex Daves bike) nothing major to do, i have recently got a replacement rear mudguard as the one that was on appeared to have been chopped down (i like things to be as stock as possible on my old bikes) however on removal it seem this is how it came from the factory as there are no signs of it being cut also where the rear light would shine down to illuminate the reg. plate it is solid plastic, another mystery with this bike. I have attached some pics to show the differences.
Now ive taken the fairing off i will give everything a thorough clean and replace a couple of missing fairing brackets. It does look very original and unmessed with underneath and very little rust apart from the header pipes which are looking a bit rough at the junction with the silencers, i think a clean up and paint will do for now, ive also got a battery cover as it didnt have one.
I have got a mate who is going to spray the belly fairing for me as its paint has blistered in places from the heat off the exhaust, its 3 different colours so needs to be done right.
Ive found a paint code on the frame and have attached a pic, does anybody know how to check this to see if it wears its original colours.

New Members please introduce yourselves :) / New owner of Davids bike.

Hi everybody just wanted to introduce myself as the proud new owner of Davids bike.
I have a bit of a collection going on at the moment and the CBR is a great addition, David has looked after it really well and i have benefitted from his care and if needed i could ride anywhere with nothing to spend.
However being me and a bit of a purist i will be making some small changes ie infill panels back on and correct rear mudguard also a battery/toolbox cover that was missing. When the weather warms up in a few months the belly pan will be having a respray as it peeling paint behind the front wheel.
It does seem that it is an unusual colour scheme for a cbr750 (see Daves pics) and i have been trawling the net to find more info, it appears it could possibly have been exported from Japan to America and then to here in England as it has American spec dials ie the speedo is mph but in reads in increments of  15 25 35 45 etc. I have seen pics of these dials on American CBR1000f s.  Its first Mot here when registered showed the mileage in MPH therefore i assume it had these dials on when imported. The shiney silencers are correct but have alloy shrouds that look to have been added but very professionally with lovely seam welds down the inside length. I spotted a cbr750 advert from last march on ebay uk and that bike had the same silencers, perhaps they were put on to meet an American spec.
I like the idea that its a bit of a mystery.
