    More progress.

    I cleaned out the carbs good and proper, a couple of the main jets were pretty blocked.

    Who knew spring clamps like this:

    are near impossible to find.

    Moved onto what's next.
    The extractors have seen better days.


    A few dings, and rust city.
    So time to get out the wirewheel and get to work.


    An angle grinder is probably my favourite tool. Made mince meat of the rust.


    Got some hitemp paint (1000 degrees C+) Autobarn has it cheapest btw.


    and we are looking good.


    mounted them easily, polished up the stock muffler, and we are closer.


    also pulled out a couple of spark plugs.


    comparing them to a brand new one they look too good to throw.
    I think I'll leave them in, just incase I flood and foul them up getting it to start.


    still waiting for a petcock, those damn clamps, and the engine will be running soon enough.

    Depends on the model. I'm rebuilding a Z50AK2 and 97% of the parts are available NOS.

    Find the part numbers and punch them in here.

    They will be much cheaper.

    Even partzilla.com has reasonable shipping to Australia now.

    Finally got some stands to took the brakes off and gave the wheel a good spin.



    bearings seem 100% fine. The brakes were rusted shut.

    I do have a kit, may replace or may keep it for later.

    Need to get new brake pads.

    Organic or sintered?

    Not planning any track days.

    Organic are fine, and easier on rotors.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    organic are fine, I even prefer them on the track, but they do end up cracking from the heat after a while.

    Saturday play with the bike day.

    Got some $65 stands from ebay, they are made in Marrickville apparently, but didn't come with any instructions, so had to put them together from the photos on the line.


    Front one isn't all that useful, cus it's a fork one, but the way it's designed it doesn't easily allow the axel to come out
    I put a jack under the sump and got the wheel off.


    All this bike mechanic stuff so far is pretty easy.


    Unbolted the front discs, and they are ready for the bin.


    Bought some touch up paint for the fairings, and it's way off. Gonna send it back.


    Back wheel was just as easy, if not easier,


    the chain seems to move pretty well, a bit of surface rust I'll wire off,


    same with the rear cog, rear disc has a good .8mm left.

    Brakes will be rebuilt soon.

    Wheels are off ready for new rubber.

    With the wheels off and pretty much as stripped as I expect them to be for a while, I gave them a good clean.
    These wheels have hollow back spokes, so a bit of a pain to clean.


    Still, they looked ok for now.


    Today was new tyre day, so I had to mount the new china spec brake discs which just arrived.
    I thought the wheel should be balanced with the discs on, just in case.


    Fitting the discs was easy. 6 bolts and done.

    BikeBuz have a deal going on some LAMS bike Michelins, and it's about the best deal I've seen right now.
    Went to Granville and they don't stock many Michelins, so they sent me up the road to the Paramatta branch.

    Dropped off my wheels, paid my hard earned, and waited they were done.

    This brand has all the new Yamaha bikes, (Kawasaki and BMW are in the other one) and yeah, some nice ones.


    New MT10 looks like a decepticon. I was seriously waiting for this guy to start talking.


    Only just spotted this one, haven't heard anything about them yet, it's an XSR700. (LAMS approved) not cheap, but pretty cool.

    a few moments later the rubber was good to go.


    yup, fresh, made mid 2016 and felt sticky to the touch.


    Well, anything would be compared to the 12 year old Pirellis I had previously.

    What's left? brakes, a bit of carb stuff, fuel system, and we good2go.

    Amazing job on the wheels. Been following for a while. Nice thread.

    Geez I hope it doesn't run into rego issues with the VIN after all your work.

    Good luck and so glad you went for good rubber.

    Rego won't be a problem. I managed to find an original rego form from 2010. And tracked down the original owner too .

    Wheels came up great.

    guy just didn't like riding apparently, let his mate take it to work, and they both just basically forgot about it.

    I'm surprised he doesn't want it back..... Unless he is waiting for you to fix it all up, then ask for it back.

    Today was the last of the demolition I hope.


    I pulled the subframe out, basically 4 bolts, a few wires, the plastic boot and battery bucket and she's free.


    The sub was pretty rusty, mostly a light layer of surface rust, so a hit with the wirewheel was all it needed.


    Rust-olenum is cool.


    better than new


    did the same to the stock radiator, but the alloy is really thin, so the stainless wireless seemed to take off a layer of alloy not just paint,
    I filled it up with water and didn't see any leaks, but of course it's not under pressure.

    and... have the chain a bit of a pull. It seems to move pretty well, no links feel locked, but it's dirty and rusty as.





    a wire wheel does this:



    is this a must replace? or will it be ok?

    Brakes, tyres and chains, when in doubt, replace.

    I guess before I spent more coin on it, I should try to get the engine running and see what I'm up for.

    ahhh it's got some issues.

    Got it started with the tank off, and it ran for a few seconds til it ran out of fuel.

    put the tank on, gave it about 5litres,
    and it runs, but bad.

    wont idle
    blue/white smoke
    the odd back fire

    is it carb tuning or is the engine toast?

    smoke should clear after its been run for more than 30 seconds.

    Some of those that work forces are the same that burn crosses.

    Dump oil and put in new fresh stuff, run it until its up to temp, then look at balancing the carbs. Otherwise sounds good.
