    Great job there CJ. :Grin: All that grit on the chain couldn't have been doing any good.

    Mate there was 5 kg of caked on mud and bolts were rusted solid. The bike consumed 2 litres of WD40 for cleaning the chain and unjam nuts and bolts ! The bike is practically brand new ,I am impressed with the outcome so is the owner. Drinks bought at IOM for the trip

    Good stuff @Ichiban :clap:

    Interested to see what looks like a Reliant Rialto (?) lurking in the background in a couple of shots. Haven't seen one of those in years :Smile:

    It's piece of junk Ed it always breaking down and the guy who owns it is always tinkering with it but has but has no clue in how to repair it. It's bloody eye sore I wish it as sent to the crushers personally.

    Looking good cj. I think your mate needs to get you hammered plus curry for all that work. Good job.

    Nice job, cleans up nicely. Enjoy the IOM, not been for a while but usually drank to much to enjoy riding the bike lol.

    If it's any use to the owner, I used Wurth chain lube, not cheap but protected my chains well and doesn't pick as much dirt or grit up if at all (teflon).

    Thanks bud we did a ECU reset cleared off all the codes on the ECU and it runs like a dream now.. I won't be getting hammered like last time mate we were drinking excessively and this time its biking only. :Whistle:

    Last IOM trip was good weather apart from one day where it rained cats and dogs and were not fit to ride for one whole day. Thanks for the tip I will tell him to get down to shops and get one can soon.
