Miscellaneous (Non Bike) For Sale / Ikea futon and Pedestal Fan mu...
Last post by Simon - July 12, 2013, 04:58:07 PM
The pedestal fan is £5 works as it should, all intact, might need a bit of a dust. Not used it since I moved out of the sweatbox I used to live in!!

Ikea futon is a maroon colour but the cover has shrunk a bit over the years so may benefit from a throw or new cover if it's going to be on show. We've used it occasionally for visitors but now have a spare single bed. It's got the more expensive mattress option you can get. £30

Both items are in Essex, near Gants Hill and will need to be collected ideally, although I have an estate car so could assist, meet halfway or something for price of fuel.

Ninjafest 13 / Great day and a pic of Dom!
Last post by Stuno1 - July 12, 2013, 01:58:03 PM
Firstly an apology, I managed to leave without saying bye to folks!!! Sorry about that. Had a quality time and love the track.

Went in the gravel but kept the bike upright and only suffered a few barely visible chips on lower fairing. Very lucky as I was going 70ish when I ran off.

When I left no one had chucked their bike away (although think Neil was close) so hopefully it remained this way!

Sorry for the lads who had issues with brakes and miss firing :0(

Anyway... Snapped this beaut of Dom catching 40 winks. Looks like track days are 'Dom time' and used to catch up on much needed sleep!

Bike Torque / Potential bike update soon...

Been getting a bit restless with the bike and did a mock up of some corona decals on another lads bike in red to match my bike. Won't appeal to all but I like it! Ordered the decals and will see what it looks like. If it looks pap i'm keeping all stock decals so can revert back to how it is now.

Make sure you have the correct kill time on it, mate has just had a new gearbox which they put down to wrong timing

Thanks for the advice dude but this is the fourth different bike I've fitted an HM to. I'm pretty happy with how they should feel.

Fitted my new HM Quickshifter to the 750 today.

It turned up on time, almost to the minute HM said the courier would deliver it. Everything was in the box including a shift rod.

The shift rod complete with threaded bar to link the quickshifter to the rod was exactly the right length. It all went together perfectly using the original ball joints.

I found a K6 750 workshop manual on the web and with zero fuss, downloaded it to my iPad. The file was a PDF with all shortcuts in the index working.

I got the tank off, airbox removed, harness wired in, quickshifter rod fitted, all wiring tucked away nicely and the bike back together with no blood spilt, no bolts dropped or missing, nothing damaged, no swearing, ranting raving etc etc

The static tests worked as advertised, the bike started and ran fine first time. The shifter seems to work fine on the paddock stands with a few small flames and bangs on some shifts  8)

The job was completed in a sensible timeframe - NOTHING went wrong.

I must be bloody dreaming. Nothing every goes this smoothly when spanners and bikes and upgrades are mixed with me doing the job.

Just hope the test ride tomorrow am goes well  :rotflmao:
