If it moves freely and smoothly it should be alright and I wouldn’t touch it.

Tyre pressures OK ?

I had a ride yesterday to the lad who does the MOT on the bike, and he checked it over and said it feels absolutely fine, so don't mess with it, just get used to it.

Tyre pressures
Bridgestone S21 Rear 40psi front 37psi.

I'll find something else to do today then. big grin

Had a ride to Sherburn cafe bar this evening and I was talking to a friend of mine about my head race bearings. We were wondering what does that rubber ring washer that goes in between the two ring nuts actually do?? Anybody got any ideas? 🤔

I should think that the top ring nut, rubber washer and locking tab is a method to lock the lower ring nut and keep it secure without adding any additional torque.

Whilst I was doing the head race bearings. I had to take the tank off just to save it getting damaged. When the tank was off I noticed on the right hand side of the engine a lot of dead insects had gathered in one spot. There were lots of Bee's and I was wondering if anybody else has come across this insect graveyard on their bikes? laugh laugh

They must get scooped up by the fairing somehow.

Cheques in the post. 👍
