    I replaced the seals, added a 20mm spacer and used 15wt oil. Stiffened the front a treat and got rid of the fore/aft po-going/rocking.

    Being British is about driving a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

    Thanks for the advise. I'll start out with that.
    Maybe convenient to know; I'm 83 kg ~ 180 lbs. Dutchies are the tallest people in the world, so that adds extra weight to the body

    The seat is finally mine to do some magic under and around it.

    Still waiting on front fork seals and teflon coated bushes... so I still can't take the bike out of its crevice. Mother nature is claiming my bike back by growing plants over it.

    I don't have a vice so this is my simple and effective way to loosen the bottom bolts

    Almost done with reassembling the shocks.
    I need a pipe to slide the old oil seal, on top of the the new seal in place. And 20W Bel-ray oil.

    Today was a good day.
    I finally found a couple of hours to spend on my bike.







    -Mounted the fork 30mm through the triple tree.
    -Filled them with 15W Putoline suspension oil (couldn't get 20W).
    -Replaced the short spring with a 316L SS tube of the same length + 20mm.
    -Spent an hour utilising my CrossFit powers to get those bloody caps on *one hour later*
    -Mounted the new steering bar.
    -And I let the engine run for a while.

    I swapped the stock controls for CBR600RR clutch- and gas controls. They don't hit the tank anymore. Now it's my thumb. Ouch!




    Bar end mirrors installed.
    I wanted them under the bar and more to the inside. But that didn't work because of them hitting the tank or my knees while riding. And my arms blocked the view. So it's a compromise.


    The wind kept blowing the cover of the bike and with all the rain and snow that's underway I moved stuff around and got 'm in the shed! Warm and dry
