    Hi All,

    Decided joining was better than perving after I acquired a non-runner '98 750 RC36 for $500.
    I live and work in Tanzania but maybe not for much longer, then it's back to toxic South Africa.
    In the meantime I got the engine running real sweet, so now to get everything else bolted up and sort problems as they arise.
    I'll be asking help on fuel pump shortly.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Welcome to the world. You will enjoy the help that is available from very talented and knowledgeable people here. I wished I could say I was one of them but I am very inept when it comes to anything technical and more advanced that the basic maintenance of our bikes. BTW. We like to see photos of our newbies rides. Post up if you can.

    Good to hear you have the beast running - so don't be shy - adding photos is easy - click the "upload a file" link and follow the prompts to select and upload photos.

    If you need help with the bike just post over in the "Mechanics Garage"

    Meantime stay safe and ATGATT

    How thoughtless of me. Thank you for the welcome and a pic of how she looked when she arrived after travelling on the back of a pickup along the 45km's of dirt road to my house. As you can see it was dust season. Now it's mud season![​IMG]
