Replica OW01 Kit triples.

I've finally picked up a set of genuine YEC adjustable kit 43mm triples for the OW01. I'll be doing a run of replicas. I'll be making 20 sets, ( believe it or not I need at least 10 sets for my own projects) And will have some spares to sell. Price tba, I want them to be indistinguishable from the o...

Re: Motorcycle work bench

Depends. If I was to make one it would be just wide enough, and long enough for front and rea stands.

I will build one someday (I have a bought hydraulic one) I found a couple of old hospital beds and ratted the electric screw jacks-controllers etc out of them... One day.... :crazy:

Re: Carb Cleaner

I've found this to be the best I've used yet. Small tins, but it is really good.

It's a genuine subaru product so you should be able to purchase from a dealer.

Re: ZX7RR Build.

I don't see any photos of an M1 Ralph? Hi Michael, I haven't revisited this post. i know M1 makes you think of a Yamaha GP bike! I'm actually referring to the Kawasaki homologation special for super bike racing. It was designated 1993-1994 ZX7-RR (M1) https://andys-kawasaki-zxr-zx7r-tribute-site.ne...

Holiday

During the enforced Covid 19 lock down, I thought of a way to lift my partners spirits. I purchased a map of the world, and pinned it up on the kitchen wall. When she got home, I gave her a dart, and said throw this, and wherever it lands i'm taking you for a holiday when covid is all over. Turns ou...

Re: Coils

no, but in theory, better than a hard worked coil that services 2 cylinders in a 2 x rhythm The modern teams use them, so they work. I'm going to have a try with them just because they eliminate a lot of piping, just wires. You still need to provide both cylinders with 12 volt energy, and with stock...

Yes Kiwi... you guys did extremely well. I know you are not a fan of the PM.

Just say the governments of the world had actually prepared for the likelihood of a pandemic?

Never happened before??? lol.

Rather than halting the world whist they got their shit together?

The ZX7R and RR are one of my TOP 5 bikes.
They sure are porky to sit on though Tim!

The M1 photoed is probably the sweetest handling bike I have ever ridden. Just takes some getting used to.

Re: ZX7RR Build.

Speaking of Team Kawasaki Australia... I've added another ex-TKA bike to the pile. This one is Josh Waters 2005 ZX600N. it's a ZX-6RR, and is like the ZXR750RR M1, this is also a homologation special. Probably only 20 came into the country, and this one is the factory bike. It came 4th in the 2005 A...
