Is this what we've come down to? What grease shall I use on my headstock bearings. RollEyes

Slap any old fooking grease on it Kermit, it won't get hot, it won't get that wet (will it Grin ) you don't plan on doing a Flipper and parking it by the docks for weeks at a time using it as a sea wall defence. I seem to recall you're not a wheelie god like our Scouser, so some vaseline would do the job, and Steve P will have shit loads of that.

Laugh

Fair enough, point taken Thumbs Up

Fixed it up a bit last night and can't think of anything else that really needs doing except for a good clean in areas the fairing usually cover and the insides of the fairing themselves. Thats an outside job with the hose that I'm saving for a sunny day RollEyes

Sorry I forgot to take pics of fitting the bearing races and the tripe clamp itself mainly as it was a messy greasy job and didn't want to muck up the camera Doh

In the end I used grease that I think was CL grease from a grease gun I bought 4 years ago to grease the XR250s grease nipples and haven't ever used till now

Proof its back together

For now I removed my mobile phone cradle (for tomtom gps) as its falling apart. It used to mount on to one of the upper tripel clamps bolts that also holds the brembo master reservoirs bracket. I've ordered a new mobile holder for £4 from china (big spender me Grin ) which has a round clamp especially for bikes so hoping i can make it fit on somewhere. On many bikes with normal bars there's loads of space but fook all free space with clipons. I'm hoping maybe I can get it to hold the mobile just in front and to the left side of the clocks by clipping it on the clock surround near the digigear...we'll see think

Fixing the upper fairing

This mirror mount bit of the fairing was virtually falling off. 90% of the crack was all the way through. I've already put a small amount of plastex inside the crack on the outer side by splaying the crack open and dropping some in and squeezing it closed again. That seemed to work for stabilising the crack that side but it needed proper reinforcment on the side you can't really see.

V groove drilled with dremmel on the inner side that won't really show much
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_105.jpg

Powder sprinkled in fairly haphazardly
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_106.jpg

Liquid added
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_107.jpg

Inner side. Looks whiter here than it is due to the flash picking up the white plastex. This original white one was the only one available when i bought my bumper pack 4 or 5 years ago for the NC30's fairing reconstruction. I know they now do it in colours and dark blue and yellow so might check that out in a mo

http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_108.jpg

Outer side crack...looks more visable here than it is as the cameras picked up the trace of white plastex
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_109.jpg

If I twang the repaired section twangs nicely. Before the repair any hint of twanging I'm certain would have been too much for it smile

Tempted to buy a new £18 pack and some extra yellow and blue powder (£8ea). Here's a video I found showing the process better than I could although I dont bother with the filler and respraying Blush

&feature=related

and Plastex own video



I'm not very good at the salesman role but anyone with broken or cracked plastics should get some of this stuff as it'll probably save a fortune when its first used Thumbs Up

Nah I doubt I'll bother trying to paint it as like you I'd probably make it messy.

This repair and a few others I like to think of as adding character to the bike Grin

Sun 6th November - Brackets and Speedohealer fix

excuse crappy pics, had to use the mobile today

Borrowed some of this carbon fibre from my brother Cool
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_110.jpg

Speado Healers top speed recall microswitch went awol some time ago...disaster I know RollEyes
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_111.jpg

Best replacement I could find was one of these momentary push swithes off ebay....£2.25 posted for five (no plans for other 4 atm Laugh )
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_112.jpg

Soldered and heatshrinked
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_113.jpg

Suitable bracket made up. Carbon fibre was a lot easier to cut with my metal saw than I thought it would be. Bench grinder made light work of getting edges straight and adding the curves
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_114.jpg

Decided to keep going as my current acumen digigear fitting looks a bit amateur. 10mins later another new bracket
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_115.jpg

No suitable bolts available to mount it so using double side tape
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_116.jpg

Done Grin

From the back
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_118.jpg

Plugged the recall cable back into the speedo healer
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_119.jpg

Ignition ON
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_120.jpg

Button pressed - Amazed it still had in its memory my top speed from my last track day RollEyes

A full no holes barred seat of your pants video of the button in action RollEyes

click to view

now in the middle of respraying my home made remote reservoir bracket as can't seem to find anything suitable on ebay or elsewhere for less than the £50 brembo want for their bracket which includes the bits I already have. Doing it properly this time by priming it first in the hope paint won't flake off like the previous 2 times I've sprayed it

I know no ones reading but posting anyway Grin

Got my proper camera back and refitted front cowl and screen then took a few pics

http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_125.jpg

Looks like i overdid the masking of the reservoir bracket but cba to redo it now although could use a black marker pen to finish it off Grin
http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr345/KermitX/CBR929/CBR929_126.jpg

Noticed during the summer via gps my speedo was reading slightly high (maybe +2mph at 30mph) which will have been down to switching to a 190/55 rear so decided to run through the speedohealer recalibration calc with my figures in

Hardly worth having it if this estimate proves correct RollEyes

Just checking Thumbs Up Laugh

I'm hoping if I ever get pulled the prominant position of the green button will remind me to give it a long press before they walk upto the bike. However if I do forget then its academic as the speed recalled could be any speed registered since the last time it was reset which could be a track day, trip to the TT or germany and therefore not sufficent evidence Wink

TBH Kerm i took my speedo kealer of as it never seemed to work properly think as in it gave a much lower speed even when set up properly. I did all the calcs and even got the chap on the dyno to compare rolling road speed with the clock, put this value in and still crap. In the end i took it off as using a 55 tyre with 2 teeth up on the back only gave a 2% 0ver forgetting the factory over for the clocks and keeps me on the right side of the law RollEyes

I think you'll find if you use the search function yellow vs all other colours has been covered in depth and the consensus was yellow ones were and still are the fastest bikes available RollEyes

As every schoolboy knows this is further backed up by the equation
