    Not sure why I kept then but use was as a template.

    Of course a two week wait before could even start the job.
    I am curious Why use he RF caliper instead of the prettier one from the GSXR600 same 90mm spacing?


    AFAIK the Triumph ones on the 595 are the triumph 90mm ones

    90mm spacings

    LOL i never noticed only reason i posted it was they used to use those GSXR600 ones to replace the 6 pots on the first GSXR750's as those to were meant to be crap.
    Funny thing though Nissans and Keihins are both owned by Honda.
    What are the reed valves on that yamasuzuki?

    Well mounted and bleed in minutes.

    Time to fit bodywork and go for a ride.


    . . . Except dirt ride for Sunday. Repacked muffler and new rear disc and new front line and test master cylinder for front. More bikes, more maintenance. Got a tail tidy for the 676 Christmas but still in box.

    Test ride; Meh, not really.

    Surging violently. Dash had been flashing off and on trying to start it as lights always on, must make a light switch. DC ignition gets dragged down you see.

    But up the street Brrapp-burr Brrapp-burr. Pretty exciting on a 500 didn't dare get the revs up.

    Hmmm. Out for a ride on the 675 to contemplate and steak pepper pie. .

    Might check battery connection. I'd already been tested riding a recalcitrant GSXR400 which required a walk back up the hill and a van ride in the stinking heat.

    Pity as 500 feels good on the road. Brakes also felt good for the couple of times I tried them.

    Tell me about it. The picture was supposed to be in the glorious sun fresh back from a triumphant run but it kinda got pushed back to the shed so I could get the roadbike out.
    The shed mess is a result of too many Christmas jobs including the ones about the house and parts arriving which go on the bench. I hesitated before I took that shot.

    The Stinger is just on the other side of the shadowboard. Needs the wiring checked from scratch but there's a billion other jobs to do on other bikes including mates.

    The 675 was a revelation compared to the creaky old GSXR. The 500 has a more natural riding position despite being diminutive. It was bordering on scary to ride like that.

    Battery attached securely. Time to apply thinking juice. Picture attached. Sideways of course.
    Been a hot day. Well for my blood anyway. Wet from sweat when I got back. Wairarapa is a great place to ride.

    Next step tank off and see if it runs fine with the workshop tank like it did on the dyno.
    But there's new doors to put on wifey's car blah blah.

    The Stinger has all rechromed tinware, exception being front guard. Tank needs painting but I have a good one of the 6. Painter is coming around tomorrow to teach me how to rehang (repainted) Corolla doors. I know sod all about cars. Just never been slightly interested. GSXR belongs to his missus.

    How much did that cost i you dont mind thats whats always scared me off the early Jap resto's ie ammount of chrome thickness of guards vs cost of bike. i had visions of 1k at least.
    My wolf has the Chromed high rise with black painted over chrone rmufflers with blached trimmed heat sheilds every Stinger i ever seen were the reverse matt black pipes and chrome mufflers. chromr trime heat shelds although some people have said they remember the opposite. pretty sure i dont have an original frount guard

    They varied. CMM mag showed up he put same pipes on his, might be mk1 were inverse of mk2, but so much is clouded by Suzuki parts bin approaches. There are 3 handlebars and two or three front guards as well as low pipes etc.

    Chroming wasn't too bad but so few places do it now. Did it piecemeal so the 1000 bucks was spread out, probably was half that.
