CARBS & AIRBOX
Realised tonight that before I could fit the battery-carrier, I had to fit the airbox, so I decided to do that along with the carbs. I had to take the back wheel off again to make room for the airbox. It all went back together without a hitch, a curse or a scuff. Before fitting the carbs, I applied a coating of AFC-50 Corrosion Block Grease to all the various bars, rods, cams and attachments to prevent them rusting, cos they're a bugger to reach once the carbs are in situ, and tend to get ignored during normal maintenance work.
Biggest problem tonight was finding the right bloody bolts. I thought I'd catalogued everything?!?!
Since taking the above photo, I've been back in the garage and fitted the battery-carrier. I'm quite enjoying these 60-minute stints in the garage each night!
Also finished the seat off tonight. Previously, I'd removed the leather cover, prepped the base and painted it black. Tonight I refitted the cover and it looks pretty good.
Tomorrow night is dog-training though.....
