Yamaha YSR "The Pole Smoker"

We use it to scan corrosion on pipes/vessels so we can do fitness for service assessments. 
 

Spent a few minutes just now to clean up some of the background noise and assemble the fairing and frame scans.

First shakedown ride to the bank proved successful but a high speed run revealed that interfering with my front sprocket and tyres has lowered my max speed to something like 80kmh... this will not do... emergency call to the water jet cutter.

Bucket Barry recommends spare levers and I always listen to his advice - but spare YSR levers aren't a thing... speed-dial. Waterjet cutter. Hi it's me. More dumb mini-bike parts please.

Lightening McQueen belongs to bucket Barry - a 1995 Ford Mustang with a 354 ROUSH V8 from a NASCAR. Or something like that. Ask him. He’ll tell you allllll about it haha.
