  1. The front is now in epoxy primer. I have a couple of areas to rub back and then it’s time for colour.
  2. Quick degrease and rattle can resto for the crossmember and castor arm brackets. All coated in epoxy black which should stick well.
  3. It’s getting very close to paint time! Please remind me to visit the sandblasters if I ever decide to paint an engine bay again... I have some more cleaning and sanding to do before we lay down some epoxy primer on Monday. Hopefully we’ll see colour in the next week or so!
  4. If you decide to go the ITB route, talk to @BobbyBreeze at Whitleytune. He casts inlets and throttle bodies and can help with getting the right lengths for harmonic wave tuning.
  5. Pretty sure it'll be last year's day 2 but in reverse (which means up hill). It's 155km so you might be 'right, Jim!
  6. We've checked amongst the mods and I don't believe your posts have been deleted at all. You might have lost some posts if the forum rebooted at a bad time, which seems to have happened a few times lately. Sorry! I enjoy your posts, so please keep them up.

  8. Don't forget those lightweight rods! *These particular rods are not from Roman's 2NZ. AFAIK he hasn't stripped his engine down to fit bigboy rods yet.
  9. Re-mounted the radiator today. I decided that I didn't like the position, so have moved it to the middle. Ordered a new k&n air filter to fit the space which will mount on the side. I'll make a new transition piece to feed the air box. I'll figure out the ducting once there's an engine in the hole again.
  10. An old fire extinguisher clamp would be the business for carrying those bottles.
  11. I've just ordered one of these from Aliexpress. Hopefully it arrives in time! I went for a 5L because my MX100 tank is so small (4.5L or so) https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000187680968.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.53fa4c4dQY7p6x
  12. Into the fun jobs now. Welded up my firewall notch, removed the whole seam along the back and have now removed the suspension, crossmember and swaybar/castor arm mounts.
  13. I'd say it’s long gone Steve. This post is from 2006 and I don’t even recall @mikuni owning it. Put up a wanted post in the for sale / wanted section. Never know what’s out there.
  14. See you all there. I'll be bringing some kind of small old bike. Better go and make sure the lights work! Up on Facebook now: https://fb.me/e/1wAaSHG2T

  17. I can collect it and probably get it to Hamilton on election weekend.
  18. Awesome day! Thanks to everyone involved with organising it. Glad I wore all the gear today and survived my first lowside.... in the middle of nowhere, but directly in front of a a marae where 3 people happened to be working on the grounds! Pretty funny to fall off and hear “YOU ALL GOOD BRO?” from up the hill.
  19. I’ve now made the move to Palmy and have spent this week sorting out the wee workshop I’m renting. I’ve set up a bunch of shelves, built a bench and added a tyre rack along the back. It’s about 40m2 (10m deep, 4m wide) and has a decent high stud so I can hang junk from the ceiling if needed. The unit number will make @kpr jealous: #unit4A Unwrapped my fresh bottom end for the first time... really keen to get the head built now... Then I finished the rear suspension guff from the previous post, removed the springs and dropped it on the ground to see what rubs. The front LCA angles are pretty bad at this height. This is on bumps and I don’t have roll centre adjusters yet. At full compression the front lower arms just touch the chassis and the tyres rub on part of the inner guard (I’ll remedy this before finishing the engine bay tidy up). The lowest point of the chassis rails are are at 35mm or so. That’s with 225/45/15 tyres... probably safe enough to not scrape ripple strips at full compression? It will never run this low, but it’s good to see what the suspension will do over big bumps.
  20. Fizz levels are way off the charts after the last couple of updates. Well done man!
  21. Great meet last night! The location was super sweet and it was cool to head to the pub for a brew afterwards. Stoked to hang with everyone for my final OS meet as a Hamilton resident. Sounds like the owners of Mizoni were very happy to have us too .
