    Try a toothbrush sprayed with ACF50 on that swingarm/shock linkage.
    Should come up a treat.

    :oops:

    Please never invite me for lunch, Hitch. Even though I think my bike is 'usually' pristine, I fear I might be embarrassed to suffer your 'once over'.:D:D *Heads off to buy a '20 Pack' of medium toothbrushes in HRC colours*:cool:

    Yep. That'll stay with me for life. However, it won't happen again. I can either get my cleaning act together, or, drop a couple of grand on a professional Photoshop suite and 'doctor' all my future posts!

    Black and Gold always looks good.

    Lookes very nice Colin, that bike still around?

    The mods you had on that bike superseeds any mod i have done on mine, with the ohlins front and rear, and those brembos. Love it.

    Do you know if it is possible to still get that Rizoma chain guard?

    That’s the chain guards that I made mate a while back.

    Yea the bike is still around as I sold it to a fellow member on here @BoroRich

    Single best thing I did to the bike was upgrade the suspension. Even when I just fitted a piston kit to the standard forks it was a big difference.

    You made them? Make me one then buddy ;)

    Starting to get into the whole PCV tuning. Thinking about fiddling a little with maps myself first, to see how it goes. Installed the program on my computer. I know there are premade maps for different system etc, are these good enough?

    Also, if you wanted to make the bike pop a little more on decel than it does originally, do you add or remove fuel when throttle position is at 0% ?

    Can’t make them anymore as I work in a different field now mate.

    Personally if you can get the bike mapped on a Dyno. It makes all the difference in throttle connection and power delivery.

    I wouldn’t over fuel the bike just to get pops and bangs on the overrun. Pretty sure it would screw up your low speed throttle cotrol and punch out of the corners.

    You need some of these to match the gold parts :)
    Love the gold of your wheels. Matching everything great! Better than the standard honda gold colour on the wheels

    Colin... what rear hugger is that on your bike, if you remember. Looks like it fits really nice and flush with the swingarm
