    Nose job

    Ho ho ho. New toy arrived today.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_P...it?usp=sharing

    Its a good solid piece of kit.

    Picked up a nice, shiny set of gixer 1000 K5 forks over the weekend to replace the slightly ropey K4 items that are in the tiller now. All being well by Monday it will be job done. Will post a pic or two once its done. Not that it will look any different from a distance to how it does now but I won't have bubbly DLC on my forks any more.
    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    Uh, maybe it's me, but all I see is blank screen when I hit your link.

    It does that. Upper left hand corner there should be a large black arrow pointing down. Click that and it should open.

    1999 TLR, Ohlins rear shock, Ohlins steering damper, HID projectors, needing a paint job.

    Ah I bought one of those exact beasts for my TL ..... good bit of kit. You have to move the horn on the TLS to make it work.

    Do you have a TLR or TLS?

    Looks a lot like mine. I made an assortment of stem pins of various lengths, or you could make one pin with multiple holes for different heights. Installing front wheels is easier (more clearance with the wheel able to be lower as you slide it in) if you take a large hammer and flatten the cross-brace between the handle ends. Even a half-inch there is useful if you want to avoid removing the front fender to get the wheel in & out.
    It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

    Thanks, that wouldn't be a problem.

    I had one of these delivered from the same company just 2 weeks ago. Now £25 cheaper!!! Not sure the TLR would fit on it though. I have that big lump in the advert.
