    Hell if you think her foots hairy, wait and see the clean action when she soots around the floor on her ass...
    I'm getting the feeling this is not normal?

    Gentlemen, or is that to PC... so people, is that inclusive enough?
    Just in case we have dress wearing men or jock wearing women you can't be to care full...
    A few pictures to update the flock. One might say FA has changed and that might be correct but it is all the small stuff to finish the RG.. Wiring loom install what a fu#king pain in the ass when its done and does not work. Have to say as you get older the horn is not what you remember, it used to be a blast but once I got it working it was more of a limp sound of a horn. Still enough to annoy the wife.
    Had to stip back the loom a little to find it was the connector. Now that was a piss off, I looked at the connection and it seemed perfect. Anyway job done and its good.



    Had to buy a couple of exhaust springs from the Jim Loam site $$$$ had to sell some of the boys PS4 games, ones they have not played for a week. They will never know, and if they do notice then... what the Fu#k you lost another game! not buying you lot any more, you dont take care of them. Useless little AHoles.

    Trying to install a birds nest of wiring in to a small spot, I had a couple of goes. It only goes one way and without pictures and the stupid manual thats good for FA I was lossing my rag, 17 beers, kick the dog and promise I will not snore AGAIN after telling the wife I dont like spaghetti, I stumbled back to the shed armed with a fresh clean vessel which was telling me to fill it up with the sweet amber nectar from the ever lasting tap in my shed... wife said beer on tap would not end well..., just cant remember when or why see said that. Full of shit as usual.





    All exhaust cleaned and installed. looking assume. installed the power valve controller, the old one was not working so dug in to my spares (bike came with a 400 in bits) and good to go. Took a while to get all the timing right, 1mm slack on each cable. I think I screwed the old one testing it with 12vdc. Not recommend, if it works dont touch it.
    Anyway back to the spaghetti just add sauce.

    Right.. time to try the spaghetti loom again, key here is to feed it all through the head light bracket (in the middle), let it hang like you know you what to. Then fold it up and tie it in place, this time I was quite happy so stand back and see what could possibly go wrong and for once nothing. Front indicator connector are where they should be. All looking good. Pat the dog and tell him he's a good boy. Might even give the wife a pat, I know she likes that!

    Notice the fancy - normal looking speedo cable, custom made to suit. Front wheel is GSX600 if you remember and the speedo drive is different. So I sent the old cable and drive unit to a company in Wellington and back came a very impressive speedo cable. Did I add that every cable has been oiled with wire cable lubricant? cut the corner off zip lock bag and cable tie it around the cable and hang it in a vice, squirt oil in to the bag until it drips out the bottom. They will last much longer and not bind. I remember riding home on the RG using the pliers from the under seat tool kit to pull the throttle cable when it snapped, about 60km fu#k did my hand hurt afterwards but I got home, I know one thing for sure if i had rung the wife the answer would have been walk. Why does she not love me.....

    Anyway... a tidy nest.

    A set of carbs hanging from the side (where God intended them to be) and a sexy spanny. Perfect bike porn....

    Add the instruments.





    Next was the low oil switch, was not reading empty like it should, cant see any thing wrong with it and when I added a little weight / push it works perfectly. My guess is the added weight drag of oil on the float will make it connect as it should. Did not take much pressure to make it work. Cow prodder has a similar affect on house cleaning, you only have to suggest or show the appropriate tool and bingo vacuum is humming. What a nice sound when all you have to do is wave your hand.

    Lucky I took off my nail polish for this shot!

    Thinking of installing this on the RG.. quite like it on the 1230 Kat. Oil temp and volts.
    shows 13+v when running and i see the oil temp, going hard its hitting 70+C. Not sure it will tell me the RG is about to lock up but cool anyway.
    Sump plug has a oil temp in it...and connected to battery.

    Yep 8.3C in my shed at 7pm.



    and volts on he battery.. sitting.



    Nice to know when the Kat gets hot, even though its air cooled. 1230 does not like town traffic, who does.

    Some will have noticed the carb screw were missing, not any more. Needed a star bit ti remove them and nicely plated screws installed, much better. Did not separate that part of the carb, just used normal screws while these were plated. Nice and look much better!

    Too much talking - not enough engine sound.
