Managed to escape the office a little early this arvo, so had a little bike time.
With the new tyres, the original paint was starting to chip a bit, so I got my Tamiya model paints out (enamel which I'm also using to touch up the fairings) and gave the chips a coat.
Will probably take 2-3 coats.
My chain tool arrived so I could now tick that off, all the cogs are cleaned and derusted as best I can.
Comparing the last chain to the new one, I had one extra link on the new one, not sure why, but so be it.
So I dremeled the pins off, and it's now one link shorter.
Lock and load.
Using this chain with the lock pin is pretty easy, no worries with riveting pins.
I also painted the chain cover, ensuring to keep the tyre info intact to make sure rego people are happy.
I was finally working on the left side, so I had a few bolts to take off and de-rust. Good as new.
Tomorrow we work on the front brakes.
Carbs maybe next week,
then finish the fairings, and put it all back together.
