Today rode 250km to a vintage bike meeting, but currently working on my NSR150SP after it seized a couple of months ago.

So the last couple of weeks I've de-termited the place and contents, ripped all the old inner walls out and replaced with weather proof gypsum, siliconed (7 tubes of the stuff!) every joint and had a

Another trip to Bikers for shiny bits and bobs that nobody will ever notice except me

Well she has been running spotty since.

Had to call for pick-up when she died on the road today.

Turns out the rubber fuel line was installed with a kink in it.

All sorted at B500 incl pick-up.

Running super-duper again.

 

Before sorting, 

papa thought .... maybe dirty carby, sticky float,

so dumped a 120ml can of fuel system cleaner

[50-baht; good for up to 25-liter fuel]

into the 5 liters in tank.

Maybe that helps with the super-duper feel.

Yeah I lied guilty as charged because I didn't want the thread messed up with non drinking health and safety brigage.

Only went at high speed getting there. 😇

Had the 80/90-17 Mich Street Pilot 2

installed on the ceeber front today.

1000baht.

The front axel prolly hadn't been pulled in 7 years or so

and the threaded end of axel was somehow buggered.

They brought out the dies and messed with it for 20 minutes

until the threads were all true again.

They also transferred the balance beads to new tire.

No extra charge.

1000baht total.

iMoto, excellent profession shop.

Nah many people who know and ride supersport type bikes here in Thailand know what I am saying.

At 170 mph the bike s still accelerating. 😇

That's interesting I had a MGB with wire rims and they had to take the tyres off to tighten and true the rim spokes up. 

So long as the wheel is not in contact with the floor, not an issue if the tire is on.

Could anyone recommend a battery for my 2010 Kawasaki D-Tracker? Before I left thailand I decided to replace the cheap battery that has been in the bike for over 5 years & buy a YUASA battery, my girlfriend had been starting the bike for me just to get the oil circulating & used my Oxford optimizer charger to keep the battery full charged, just over a year the battery was dead & wouldn't charge up, so at the moment I'm still stuck in the u.k & was looking for a cheap battery just to use till i return, ive seen some cheap batteries on lazada & a friend of mine said to try shoppee.....

Cheers

Put stickers on my KLX250 2009.  Was a ball-ache with a broken ankle.  Wish I left the scratches visible.

Nice bike, could you recommend a battery for my Kawasaki 250 D-Tracker? I bought a YUASA Battery before returning to the u.k that was dead just after a year, so I just want something cheap till I can return......

Cheers

I no longer have the bike but I did change if for the same make if I rememeber.  6-months I used it with no issues.  Actually, within that 6 months I rode it 4 times.  Bike started with no issues.   In your post above you say just over a year.  That's not bad going if the bike wasn't used other than just to run it on idle from time to time.

I bought a Chang battery to try out couldn't believe how they are so cheap 12v 5amp and have found no fault so far. 

Had one neally a year and reads no lost on the multimeter reading.
