The new master cylinder used us a hayes stroker. It's ideal as it uses dot 4 at the brake fluid. It also has a long thin master cylinder body so can fit this with the standard clutch without to much of an issue. They are pretty cheap to. You can get a lit which allows you to keep your rear pedal to, but as I'd already removed it I just carried on without.

Ah yes I see now. Just like my riding buddy has. This English dude Jason was riding on tarmac. One day had bad accident and opened up his right leg from just around ankle all the way to his hip. Now his ankle is fused and has massive scars. He's using this set up, left hand bar mount rear brake.

Been quiet for a few weeks now! Well the engine is in the process of being rebuilt. It's had a complete set of new bearings and the gearbox has been reassembled and put back in. The crank is away to be checked and bearing is getting replaced. The garage is a bit cold so I borrowed the kitchen lol.

That's brilliant! I'm not the only one that rebuilds bikes and boat engines in the house�� dishwashers are great parts cleaners ,plastic chopping board was great to wedge and hold primary gears,my glass scales made a great lapping pad too.and it's so much cleaner in the kitchen compared to the shed.
Thanks from tourist

Yeah she's definitely a keeper.

The kitchen is great. Lots of tools and plenty of machinery to use.

Tonight's job was in the kitchen but Didnt really need to be.

New valve springs installed.

New front tyre arrived.

I wimped out with splitting the crank. Its not worth messing up. So I've boxed it up and sent it to Lancashire (gods county) to DCR to give it a once over and change the big end. I've also sent my liner and piston for him to check to see if it's all OK to reuse.

I'm currently wheelless.

Ive sold the behr rims and am currently awaiting delivery of some ktm mag wheels.

Lots going on and progressing quickly now the bits are here and I've got the time.

Ive had news back from DCR. Great news the crank and Conrod are sound and ready to be used again.

The not so good news is that my liner is egg 🥚 shaped and the piston is at the end of its life.

So I need another liner and piston before the build can go any further.

Whilst the wheels are off and stripped though it would be a good time to get the Wheels coated. Added some sparkles to be a bit different. Whilst they are off and stripped I've got a full new set of bearings to put back in.

The replacement liner is back from being coated and I also have a new wossner modded piston to fit back in. The crank has been checked and big end bearing replaced. (another 350 gone)

I just need to find some time to rebuild her. Looks like I'm away this summer so may have to admit defeat and prep for 2019
