Stripped the forks down on my GSX14 today, need to wrap them up & send them off for rechroming as part of sorting all it's issues in one go & getting it back on the road for march.

Unsure if I should bother changing the bushes (if they are a sensible price) too, they are worn but I'm not sure I'll notice any difference.

Just ordered a load more bits to refresh my GSX14. You know the four metal bushes in forks? £78 for all four, that's a bloody rip off! But I've got no choice they are all down & part way through the backing material. Oh & the fuel filter is £175! Jap crap gets expensive at times...

That was an excellent evening. Went to a talk about the Black Buck raids & Operation Chastise, the speakers were Martin Withers & Johnnie Johnson. It's not every night to get to hear such things first hand or shake the hand of a man who flew the Dams Raid & thank him for everything they all did. I also got two books on the Dam Busters singed by the man himself 8-)

Sounds a great night. Although if they had done it on the Vulcan they would have been in and out without anyone noticing until the water started pouring out. And they wouldn't need to have the numerous refuelling 'adventures' required for the away day to Port Stanley

I got two books about the Dam Busters signed by Johnnie Johnson too 8-)

I use photobucket mate. All I get is a pop up when I first open the page, but I do have Ad-block plus running.

I am an idiot. Was under the Saab today sorting a slight water leak & noticed a loose bolt so one front fog light flaps about. I then totally forgot to sort it until I was driving about later. Guess I'm back under the car tomorrow then...

I forgot that bolt again yesterday when I was under the Saab again!

Got this the other day, as per the pic I've used it to drill out a knackered thread & fit an insert. Should stop the cam cover leaking on my 14.

I don't regret investing in a pillar drill, very useful pieces of kit.
