Thanks mate, got quite a bit done today had it booked in for MOT (but in hindsiight a bit optimistic with the amount of jobs left to do so have re-booked for monday)

Did the final fit on the clocks, hooked up the fuel pump but it was causing problems with pushing too much fuel through the carbs so have removed it for now and hooked up an earlier on/off/res gravity tap and seems to have done the trick for the time being (as long as I keep the tank topped up it should be fine), all wiring and switchgear finally fitted and tested, horn fitted, undertray, reg plate and indicators fitted, top fairing fitted.

So not much to do then! BUT it won't be fully finished until it's re-painted back into it's original livery and certain other parts are replaced or refurbed but I need it on the road now to check out reliability and set up so I can use it this summer and do the rest as a rolling restoration.

Cheers

Thanks mate, no advantage as such to fitting the fuel pump, only reason for it on this bike is that the fuel tap on the ally tank sits a lot lower than the carbs so gravity feed gets a bit awkward when the fuel runs low hence the pump.

Hi Mate, not sure if the superchips system is still available?? and I think it only fits on the Evo loom as it has the plugs for it, advantage is it let the Blade rev higher than it's stock rev limit not much good if you haven't got a tuned motor to support it I assume!?

Anyway have now completed the bike ready for MOT tomorrow (hopefully!) took it for a short test ride to check out gearbox, clutch and brakes, all electrics are working as should, bike starts and goes fine on the freeflow tap, couldn't got too mad as I have a new dunlop tyre on the front that needs bedding in and just wanted to make sure nothing was loose or making any undue noise (apart from the exhaust of course!!) bike seems to handle quite well but need to get the new shock on when it's ready to make it handle properly.

To summerise it's still not fully finished, still got the new shock to fit, the Titax shorty levers that have been ordered to fit, a selection of fasteners to sort as there is a mix n match fitted at the moment to get it roadworthy, redo or buy new mirrors and finally have a full repaint done in the winter to complete the whole bike. Pics of the finished bike tomorrow.

Cheers

Steve

P.S. Not bad me thinks approx 4-5 weeks from box of bits to complete bike! dance

Are those Rearsets Harris?
I found them uncomfortable due to the brake cyl and heel plate pressin.
It may not be a problem to you but my boots have Zip and velcro over the inner ankle, V. uncomfortable on long journeys.

I remounted the cyl inboard of the bracket and used a spacer and longer bolt thru the lever to piston. The heel plate stayed on the front and, Hey Presto, comfortable foot. eyebrow

Great work, go and enjoy it. thumbup

Thanks guys, it is with great sadness though that I am going to have to sell the Evo :( went for a 50 mile spin out today and on returning found that my wrist was pumped up and in a fair bit of pain! a few mates told me to put bars on the bike and keep it but it wouldn't be that same and would spoil a great bike.

Thanks guys, had a chat with a mate of mine about the Evo blade/wrist problem and he came up with it possibily being the fact that there are no proper bar end weights in the clip ons, hence the constant vibration cause a repetative strain type injury, so going to fit some weights in the bars and also use a proper compression wrist strap and try the bike again at weekend and see what happens! got to be worth a shot.

The new nitron shock arrived today and very nice it is too, would make me even sicker now if I have to part with the Evo!! Will fit it at weekend...

Fitted my new levers aswell:



All thats left to do is back seat pad, set of fairing bolts to replace the oddballs that have been used and the return of my flatslide carbs from allens performance who have give them a complete overhaul to check them out and fitted a TPS to hook up to the Evo's loom.....

I must shut up now as it's making me feel SICK!!!

Steve, is it worth angling your levers down a bit more to make it more comfortable on your wrists? Your hands will be doing less work whilst your wrist is supporting your hands bent upwards.

It made a big difference for me.

Well guys took it for a spin on sunday, same distance as last weekend but with the bar ends fitted (didn't use my wrist strap as didn't want to mask anything) got back and no tingling in the hands, no pain in the wrist! So she came off e bay and will be used for the rally that I go to in south wales as a proper test (I get aches and pains anyway from riding that disance but if it's anything worse than I normally get I'll know it's the bike!

My brother had a go on it (he has a 954) and even he said the riding position is a bit much for him! I had a go on his 954 straight after and I could feel the difference the riding position on the 954 is about 2" more upright than the Evo.

At leaset we seem to be getting to the root of what the probs were and on the more good news side had a call from allens today and my carbs are ready and should be with me tomorrow Smile

Oh and fitted the new Nitron shock aswell which works a treat sunny
