    Great service from Mega Motorcycle Centre and Eurobike - I ordered a paddock stand yesterday and it was here this morning. Unlike my box of bakery goods which is due today. Almond croissant the size of my head!!!

    My Monster had a 996 engine so when I saw the sight glass there was briefly cause for concern, until I learned milkshakes came standard.

    I had a dozen Behemoth due to be couriered today. The beer is packed and ready to go but the sellers are in Kumeu and the area is underwater. The couriers can't get in to pick up the orders.
    OK I'm not in a hurry.

    Actually, the book would make an attractive Father's Day present.

    Ooh does it include the Ohakune GP, the Foxton GP, or my favorites, the Ohakea GP tracks?

    No, no, and yes.

    It even includes the picturesque Lake Bryndwr track which I rode my pushbike around aged about 10, but which I couldn't locate when I got Google maps. Now I know why.

    Belts, shims, service items (plugs filters oil) done. Also carb rebuild. tyres are next and a rear shock. Have handlebar clamps but the handlebars I had in a box are tweaked so I get to do that again. I will also change the fork oil. Chrome on stanchions not great but will give them a polish before I replace. One front disc is slightly warped but within wear tolerance. Low priority but will replace in due course.

    Apart from that, its a minta!

    Muzza Sutherland - his business is Mecanica https://www.mecanica.co.nz/

    Primarily chosen as it is close to my work but honestly he has been fantastic to deal with. I've also gotten hold of a couple of bits from specialist Italian bike wreckers but only little stuff. Its been good fun and no pressure because I have another bike to ride.

    You dont want warp if you can avoid it for heavy braking.

    What do they match up to? My YZF had Brembo type Yam discs. I replaced with some 2nd hand Aprilia I recall, but had rebuilt set before with PVM rotors, I might have something where one us straight, one warped. Likely different pattern but yours for postage if match yam fitment.
