Well that's my bike tucked away for the winter in its boil in the bag. Got the oil and filter changed, Put the stabilising fluid in the petrol tank, then ran the engine to empty the carbs. I even managed to change the antifreeze too. I gave it a good clean and polish up, all I need now is for spring to arrive. big grin thumbsup

Do you fill the tank to the top before hibernation?

I always make sure the tank is full. I learnt that many years ago when my daughter left her tank almost empty on her Kawasaki gpz 250 and Iíve never seen so much rust in a petrol tank. When she came to start it up it it wasnít playing at all. You can imagine the work we had on sorting the carbs out. cry baby mad[/quote]

When I saw your thread subject I got worried (sorta). Thought you might be checking out. As Spike Milligan's epitaph says "I told you I wasn't well".

I thought this young blood was banned stig? Chuffing ought to be. 😘 So youíve got the all clear now then? What did the Doctorís find when they were doing their examinations, was itís swinging brick? 😂 Youíll have to give me the name of the useless wasak of the Doctor you had I donít want to be booking an appointment with him in the future.

Do you want me to keep my eyes peeled for you? PM or text me your budget so I now what price range we are looking at.

PS: Have you got any better looking since youíve been away? raspberry nod

Nuggitt,
What have you done about the battery during storage? One of my largest problems is keeping the batteries charged and healthy in all of my bikes.







In my case, with so many bikes, some bikes get out very infrequently. I have several trickle chargers (but not enough for all of the bikes). So, I move them around every couple weeks to make sure all the bikes keep a charge.

Although I drive my FZR & FJR very frequently (more than all the other bikes), those are also wired for a trickle charger.....



Just wondering if you've made arrangements for the battery?

Sincerely,

John's wife doesn't know exactly what goes on indoors when she has a night out with the girls. The dishwasher is very useful for cleaning engine parts, airbox, small plastic items etc etc.

Aaaaaaaaggggghhhhhh, hello Mrs Nuggitt, didn't notice you lurking in the corner. Errrrrrr, I'll be gone now.

My bike isn't for the likes of you young bloods. I mean you wouldn't give a 5 year old a razor blade to play with would you so why would I let you loose on my powerful bike. laugh laugh laugh I think at your young age you ought to start with a nice 300cc and go through the ranks up to a bigger 1000cc bike. I now you've had an FZR1000 before but I think with the speeds you got up to on our rides out I'm sure it was a detuned one. laugh laugh laugh laugh

I'll have a sniff round for you so get saving up young man. Have you thought about selling your body to science, on second thoughts having been in your company I wouldn't bother karl. laugh laugh laugh raspberry
