Project Tigger

Post by alsieboy on Wed 05 May 2010, 12:48

Postie brought a bundle of goodies this morning, so thought I would make a gentle start while the pain was at controlable levels this morning.

Clocks arrived so decided to see if the internals could be swapped over...

Original clocks..



Replacement clocks...



rear of speedo on the original clocks was smashed....



tip for you make a note of the wiring if your are going to attempt this cos it's not always that clear where the wires go..and seperate the screws cos there are different lengths too..



Broken part of casing removed and the internals are intact...happy days..



When removing the speedo dont forget the mileage reset roller which is held on with a very small cross head screw....



New clocks are split and the casing put to one side..



now the internals of the new clocks can be removed..



and replaced with the original internals



decided to re-use my original wiring loom...



Wiring all back in place



And voila.....refurbished clocks...sunny



Anyone have any use for this little lot...free to a good home sunny

Deciced for the mid panels it's going to be more cost effective to respray them sandy beige metallic and shell out for the decals. Decal costs £70 a side as apposed to £200 + vat for a replacement mid panel. Had this panel kicking around the garage for a few years, seemed a shame to attatck it and remove the decals, but it's a mint straight panel which will paint up nice..

attacked it with a hairdrier to soften up the decal and it came off easily...





That's the right hand side mid panel sorted...

The mid panel decals work out at £180.10 the pair inc vat, compaired to £428.08 inc vat for a new pair of mid panels. Given that the decal covers 95% of the panel, worth going that route. sunny

are you going to spray the panels yourself? how are you going to get the colour match exactly the same?

more goodies arrived today....

A straight fairing brace...been staring at it for ages checking it wasnt bent, the more you look the more you convince yourself that something is wrong, but having got the tape measure out and checked it, it is straight..even in the pic I have took it looks out of shape ..lol!

had a good day yesterday so had a fiddle with the bike....had the forks checked and the good news is they are straight, he losened the yolks and re-tightened to correct any slight movement that may have taken place and the scuff just t-cutted off the legs. Happy Dayz..

The clock bracket looks well buckled..





removed the remains of the damaged bodywork..



Screen is too scratched to be salvagable so will have to find another..



Can't beleive this inner fairing panel survived undamaged..



And the fuse box cover is un-damaged, more savings



Managed to strip out the bracketry..



Clock/fairing bracket had to be hackd up to release the wiring..



Fairing brace is scrap, but I got a new one..



Radiator was beyond salvation







And the fan housing was buckled



But the grill was intact and un damaged



New radiator in with second hand fan and original grill back in place



Clock/fairing bracket in with wiring re-routed and clocks installed





Getting there slowly........
