Things were going swimmingly then this happened!!! Why did one needle have two plastic washer things and the other only have one?
Hey jimi, you need two of each of the plastic spaces. The smaller two go underneath the E clip ,one on each needle and the larger goes on top of the E clip. The spring on the diaphragm then holds the needles in place. It wouldn't be too hard to make one out of some suitable plastic

so you're saying the extra spacer there needs to go to the left of the spacer that's already on the needle and then the larger one on the right side of the clip as it indexes in the spring?
think I need pictures.

Its running!!!!!!!!

Also replaced lots of screws and bolts with allen head bolts today

1. airbox bolts M6x 16mm
2. Carb diaphragm caps M5x10mm
3. Frame petcock M6x16mm
4. Air Filter M5x10mm
5. Fuel tank M8x40mm

so far I need two allen key and a screwdrivers to take off the tank and carbs.

Tank also refitted nicely.  Jump started after taking out my inline filter (originally thought it was backwards but flow direction was right) may have been too fine or blocked.  Bike cranked lots before finally firing with an enormous backfire (I did spray some WD into the bores to crank and keep them lubed while there was no oil around the place).

Cant quite set my idle speed yet because I still don't have a working tach yet.

Got gauges off.  Had to actually cut a slot in the metal faceplate as the screwed in the knob on the speedo is stripped and it was the only way to free it.  Anyone advise where to get the little coloured lenses from?

have sanded, etch primed and given one coat of aluminium.  Looks far better already.

In other news Damn breaks still not bleeding.  have replaced plunger and spring in master cylinder.

Cleaned the fork legs today in preparation for changing the fork oil.  Used chainsaw bar oil and a non scratch  chug scouring pad.  Made short work of the rust.  Blue LEDs arrived today.  Must've misunderstood the eBay listing.  Ordered 5 thinking i'd get five LED for a grand total of $3 but instead got five sets.  Now have many LEDs surplus.

painted the exhaust with many many coats of aluminium ceramic heat proof paint.  Have been baking it off for a while now.  trouble with unregistered and air cooled bike is that I can't run it for the prescribed 20 minutes.  have been running for 5 minutes and I can see and feel the paint baking off.  Also should mention I had the system sandblasted before painting.  Think the paint will bit in well (according to the company that did it, I was sing the same paints that they use).
Jimmy

Sonic Springs ordered.
New Bars ordered
New Grips ordered.
LEDs ordered.
tacho cable installed and tested.
Stainless steel bolts on their way too.

Top box mounts arrived today. Super excited to fit them. Unfortunately the occy strap holding my bag into the seat came undone and I dragged my bag a few m down the highway before someone pointed it out to me. In the process it seems to have taken off the cover on the top of the rear brake caliper. Grr indeed. Bag did hold up well however.

Chain....check
Sprockets......check
Chain breaker tool.....check

Can someone explain how I should be using the chain breaker to shorten the clip link chain? No idea what the other bits are for (presume riveted chain).

Chain breaker actually broke while trying to push out the ground off pin (both sides). Need a new fender. Seems while fitting the new fork brace I saw the extent of the crash it was in before I got it.
Last is a picture of the mismatched and stripped bolts/screws that I replaced in the process of doing the fork brace today. Plus the things I found in the headlight dish. Less rattles now.
