That fork fluid looks like it would have left some solid behind. Yummy.

This rebuild deserves its own thread. It'll be lost to page 67 of the saga. Good job!

I gave up on separate topics after yet another system crash wiped out half of them. 

Hence this "blog"; in the faint hope it will survive another crash... :laugh:

Too bad nobody has invented a way to BACK UP files.😬  If you only keep one blog, how about a table of contents up front? There's too much good stuff in here.

 

Meanwhile, you should really consider keeping the red bike. Something about red being the fastest color...on the best generation...

continuous "short"/sparking of the points.....

indicationg it is not building pressure/pumping. cos then it shorts once every while

Bike will run on gravity ofcourse, but runs lean

Ya know, I would do that. I really would. Except I don't want to. Also, I don't think I'm allowed to edit your blog entries... 😁

 

BTW, don't forget to update your garage inventory...
