Glad you are ok, and that it isn't an engine valve!

:)
Haha thankfully not - I would've been a bit more upset if that was the case!

Yesterday: did about 100 miles or so recovering the bike from Bournemouth. No repeat of the random fuse incinerating trick! :D

The more things I clean/service/fix on this bike, the more I'm convinced it was previously owned by the hulk...

Had to use a big breaker bar to get the rear wheel nut off last week when replacing the valve (must've been at least 50nm tighter than the recommended torque specs).
Then did an oil and filter change a few days ago and spent 20 minutes just trying to get the filter off. It was so tight that the tool actually dented the filter!

Started removing paint ready for respray, good news, under the crappy silver paint etc was what I thought was the original SEED paint work. That was until i went a bit deeper and underneath that was the original SEED paintwork. I reckon I will have shed a few kilo's from the bike just in paint and filler alone by the time I'm done. Never seen paint so thick! Also never seen body filler used to repair plastic before, strangely it didn't work :roll:

Took the RVF out today, after 5 weeks and 2000miles on my MV Agusta. Did 120miles looning around the Lancashire countryside. Happy days.

The rvf still brings a massive smile to my face. I'll write up a comparison next time I'm at a pic - typing on my iPad - meh. :D

Finished off a servce, oil, new coolant, reshimming valves etc. Having dropped a shim which of course went straight into the sump I also dropped the exhaust off and gave that a clean up, new gaskets etc.

It's amazing how some really shonky looking bits just keep on working

Admittedly this was the worst one...

Having found some pillion peg brackets I also popped them on, proper pins will replace the allen bolts soon.....

Worked on getting the NC30 ready for safety inspection (MOT) and buggered up the headlight adjuster.
