Washed the Sv down after yesterday's wet ride to Southwold & lubed the chain to make sure it isn't a rusty mess when I next come to ride it.

Found a nut and bolt to use on the exhaust strap, after the other one went walkies

I asked my sister for a torque wrench for my birthday. Her reply was why do you need a wrench that talks? Does it tell you when you've tightened something up?

I have now changed my request and asked for some cash instead. I think that's safer.

I suppose she is half right with that bit of the response.

Fixed the release latch on my kappa top box. I couldn't lock the box after removing it. The red release button was sticking. Oil didn't fix it so pulled it apart. Found a lose washer jammed in the mech. No idea where it came from.

Tightened and waxed the chain. I also adjusted the clutch cable.

A full set of k5 cams have gone in the track bike. Have I mentioned lately that the curvy cam chain tensioners are a sod to install? Hey Ho, new cams are in and clearances are good. Time for a beer.
