I thought we already had this conversation Al? smile

Just cut off a bit of innertube and put it between the bar and the controls and it clamps it in place. I've done it on my SP and there's no movement at all. I had the QA throttle to the stop out on the roads yesterday and it didn't go anywhere (the throttle assy I mean, not the bike!).

HI Nash,

Yeah, I was good with the inner tube done it on the switch gear and clutch side Thumbs Up

Was just a bit concerned about the throttle, but as you and Quazi have said - no need so thats the way I'll be going with it.

Certainly simplifys things Thumbs Up

Hi All,

Not a great deal been done on he blade for the last month or so, SP taken priority.

Bought a few bits (when I've seen them @ good prices )

Front & rear Wheel Bearings
Sprocket Bearing

Got these as plan to get wheels powder coated white to match the bodywork ( when finally sprayed)

Got some new indicators (pattern) but a very good copy £12 for 2 as opposed to stupid money for honda ones Thumbs Up

index.php?t=getfile&id=18377&private=0

Pattern on front fairing, honda on rear - on the look out for cheep rears & still after a genuine top fairing, not happy with the copy thats currently fitted.

You've got a Blade as well as an SP eek

Wink

God knows what you'll do with your time whenever you finish them both but good prices those although never been a fan of white wheels but then I'm a lazy bugger at times. I forget now what colour scheme your opting for?

Oh yeah, remember now but aren't those black wheels I spy Wink

Have you photoshoped one to see what it'll look like with white wheels as maybe it'll be too white if there is such a thing.

The cans not too bad looking but with stubbies I think they look better if there's an equal amount of can either side of the strap position (like mine Laugh )

What you need is to find (on google images) a large side on pic of the blade in the scheme you want and I'm sure me, Streeky or someone else might be able to turn black into white.

[edit] Like this one

index.php?t=getfile&id=18385&private=0

I'll have a go later

HI Kermit,

Had a go using paint, it looked shite !!!!

thinking of having a go with the blue as yuo can see that as the triangle gets bigger R-F if it were extended out the front of the bike the wheel would fall into the blue section.

Play time Laugh

This the best I can do Blush

index.php?t=getfile&id=18387&private=0

the problem is the tyres in the original pic are virtually the same shade of black as the wheels so PS's replace colour doesn't work without first drawing freehand the rough outline of the wheels which is no easy task with a mouse Laugh

Hi Kermit,

Whilst my attempt to colour wheels wasn't great, what I was refering to was the White wheels, nah, don't work !

Was wondering if it looked worse as therers two shades of white, but unless I get wheels sprayed using same paint as bodywork this is always going to be a problem.

had thought of powder coating the wheels just to make them harder wearing - not had anything powder coated any colour except black before, is there much choice of colours available and do you think they could math the bodywork as in my mind if it wasn't an exact match it would look poo.

looking like they might stay black after all Laugh
