    I'm a big fan of your infills. Who did you use? I've just orderered a rear hugger from Carbon2Race. Praying it's good quality kit.

    hi pal I bought the tank infills off eBay from China but they came slightly damaged and I had to dremel and make them fit, got my money back on them though for the damage!
    The air intake carbon trims I bought from eBay China again and they was really good quality

    I’ve bought some carbon from a few uk sites like carbon king and rsmoto an to be honest there’s been no difference in the quality I’ve found!

    had the bike since late October and been out on it 2 times pal and neither was in anger either, damp roads and just test rides after rebuilding the wheels and fitting the new brakes.
    The second time I went out was just to see how the power commander felt and it was certainly smoother on the throttle.
    Absolutely itching to get out properly now on the summer days with nice dry roads:mad:

    Must be gutting to have it there and just can't use the shiney new toy!
    I know the feeling....I had a new blade delivered end of Feb last year and lock down announced early March!
    I soon made up for it a few months later as I'm sure you will.
    Let's hope we all see some decent weather this spring and summer

    Absolutely killing me now pal, we’re so close to getting out!
    I got no shame in admitting I’m a fair weather rider, I like a thrash out and no way I’m riding these bikes on cold wet roads.
    I’m thinking next winter I’ll buy an enduro and get some green lane riding done with a few mates, something I’ve been looking into last few days.
    Would be more spending out though and I done enough of that on this fireblade:p

    Now I know why I don’t let kids in my car. ;), and the wife would be scared to even suggest eating something in it. :D, not that she even likes going in it, as she reckons it about as comfortable as sitting on the back of a bike ;)

    Not much doing lately other than some rear hooks fitted and I made some blanking caps for the frame with abit of chopping and then using rubber glue to hold them in and if I ever take them off they won’t leave any glue marks behind!
    Thought I’d give it a try for the sake of £5 for a few blanking plugs:)

    How about wheeling it back a bit and adding a pullout table so you can sit on it and watch tv? :rolleyes:

    Looking good Glen. Where did you get your rear hooks from? These would provide ideal securing points for rear luggage.
