Fixed another Ollie job on the CG (anyone remember the valve job he did before I bought the thing? :lol:).

Anyway, the battery was flat when I used it last week so I popped it out to check the acid levels and charge it up. As I gently eased it out a load of shitty crimp connectors flopped out so I got the soldering iron out to do a proper job.

The battery is boned anyway but I do have a big fat capacitor hiding in a drawer somewhere...

Pouring with rain on my day off so time for the annual oil change on the CBF. As usual the new washer for the sump bolt was the wrong size so I had to enlarge it fractionally with the dremel. No idea why they always give me the wrong size - and I always fall for it thinking "That looks bigger than last year."

I have now kept the old one to take back next year!

Fitted a puig screen and added a piece of black vinyl by the headlight, also added a larger rear sprocket... Up 2, I have down one for the front but if this weather improves I wanna have a test run first :scratch:
