After riding to work I noticed my exhaust is a bit drunk, guess I'll be adjusting and tightening the clamps when I get home - when it cools down of course!

Stripping the carbs on one of the VF1000s, to find they've been reassembled with gasket sealant, which has gone everywhere.
So, taking my time and doing things properly.
Once its done, its up for sale as i've another bike coming.

R6 throttle change and I also polished up the bar ends so they are nice and shiny rather than rusty black!

Also started tinkering with the front brakes but got a bit chilly so gave up...job for another day

Finished bleeding the brakes on the 2 track bikes, that's 2 dry front systems, and 1 dry rear plus a fluid change on a rear that had older fluid from one 500ml bottle with some spare left for top ups.

You really don't need much
