coming along well there Jessie.....once you get the suspension set for your weight you'll be able to charge harder as the bike won't pike out or pogo like a 30 year old volvo....you'll be pleasantly surprised just how much better it will feel.

Cheers guys. Everything else for it is coming from the states, except some heavy duty tubes. I have no idea what tubes are in the bike so iv been running a higher PSI the whole time. Ill call suspension matters tomorrow to find out when i can drop the bike in to get done. As apparently i have to do fridge hill / powerbox hill / big arse hill this weekend.

Well the bike is back together. Heres 2 pics. I didnt wanna double post so im just editing this one.

So went to put a new o-ring on the oil filter cover today to stop the new leak it had got after changing the filter, then it just got worse from here on out. I should have just let it leak so i could have gone riding tomorrow but instead i had to fix it. So i had to order a new one from the states, along with 5 genuine o-rings so i know ill always have the correct fitting o-rings so this problem may not happen again.

Yea, i think it has something to do with me and motors. Everything i get my hands on is in perfect condition. Then shit rolls down hill no matter how much i look after it. So using my knowledge as a commodore owner, i made a temp fix for tomorrow. It was ones a HID ballest bracket. Then out with the dremel and gasket goo, i may have won.

Torque wrenches are your friend! Go easy with bikes, unlike cast iron commonwhores bike alloys are much softer and you'll find 10-15 ft lb is enuff to hold most small stuff together. Hope the home fix holds up as it could be a long walk if it let's go....!

Well after watching that vid again, i vowed id do a proper one today. I did. None of have cameras tho. My dodgy fix of the oil filter cover works perfectly and does not leak. I think i blew the shock seal today upon landing a jump. Steady flow of fluid coming out.
