Hello Everyone, time to say hello from sunny Newbury. I've owned my 1995 Gen4 since late 1996. But I gradually rode it less and less. Until I finally laid it up in 2011 due to having young kids and still playing club cricket. Both were getting in the way of riding. I couldn't quite bring myself to sell it. Time rolled on until about year ago. In the first lockdown, having first fixed all the household DIY jobs, I started to uncover my bike and bring it back to life. Since then I've been trying to restore it, without changing it too much from the original spec. It was always a better bike than I was a rider. Stock was good enough for me. I've spent most of this time de-rusting the fueling system, the damaged petcock - ancient rubber seals didn't like grinding on rust particles - and various collapsed or rigid hoses. I am now quite used to stripping, then cleaning the carbs - I didn't get it right first time around - and balancing them later. Having stood so long there have been a few issues that only revealed themselves after test rides. For instance the countershaft oil seal giving up on the way back home from its MOT test (It passed the test first time). Then there was corrosion causing a leak of the waterpump cover casing O-ring seal, which only showed when it got really hot. Then, a perforated small rubber hose from the pipe from the block down to the water pump. Which again only showed when hot. Each test ride brings another hour long fairing off inspection. I'm looking forward to replacing that latest porous piece of old rubber this weekend. I have a set of AS3Performance Silicone hoses all ready to go on. I think, or at least I hope that I am running very short of remaining 26 year old rubber bits that can still leak. But I have yet to replace the OEM Regulator/Rectifier. Or fit a new set of tyres - any recomendations? Like the rest of us I am looking forward to getting out on the road again. Which should co-incide with the end of lockdown here at the rate I'm solving issues.
