Got the bike engineered now so I just need the inspection and we are on the road.
But and there is always a but fuel is leaking past the float valves and flooding the chamber so the bike all but refuses to start. When it does and clears its sweet though. No surprise that they have failed really. Now I have 3 bikes with carby trouble  :-[ best get to work then
I also picked up and pair of complete rear sets pegs etc off Yahoo along with a seat cowl and a side panel.

Swopped out the dodgy valve for a spare used one I had and so far so good. Going to put a few more litres in the tank overnight and see what happens

Jools a guy from Narellan does them for Old Gold Motorcycles. I just take the bike back to Old Gold and he comes around every week and does five or six bikes at a time. Costs around $300 for the bikes they import not sure if he may add on a few more $$$ for other bikes. About $350 is the standard fee they all charge.
Ask Steve at Old Gold about a TDR he just sold off two more a few months ago and is always on the look out for strokers. He will add you to the list and call when he finds one.

I took the bike for a sneaky spin up the road and after it cleared itself out it went well. The front end needs to be straightened in the clamps but it rode pretty nice. I did forget about the 25 year old tyres but soon remembered when I tipped into the roundabout  :o

Got a few goodies in the post today  8)
New aftermarket seat cowl, wrong colour mind, good rearsets and a spare rear side panel as mine is gouged out. Its not perfect but for $2.60 its good enough  ;D

Ready for action now. Had the wheels powder coated and new tyres fitted, BT45s, cleaned up the right pipe and did a cut and shut on a few different pipes to make one good one using some pipes I got from Mark. Still need to paint the seat unit and hand blisters but I might replace the decals on the entire bike. One seller on ebay UK says he will do any colour you want so I will send him a piece of my decal and get him to match it up.

How does the seat cowl fit? I am interested in one for my 2ME. Did you get one from Classic Race Replicas?

Can you share the info on the supplier? Near as I can figure, the one out if the UK will cost me about $150 USD!

He sells under the name of sponge bob on Yahoo and will ship over seas. I will try and find him and post a link up. Not sure how you will go if you cant understand Japanese, you might have to use Mori man or someone like that.

This is him but he hasn't got any listed at the moment but he would have some in stock so keep watching.

Finally got the first ride in on the bike today, its been registered for the last few weeks but its been pissing rain here since then. Nice to ride too and has a fair bit of torque down low. I'm happy with the way this has turned out and for what it has cost me its a good result. As soon as I find someone to do the plus decals I might even paint it.
