    Ok so Brembo's and standard suspension equals heaps of front end dip apparently, even though I made a clearance cut out in the light bar bracket, LOL !!!!!!IMG_2709.JPGIMG_2710.JPGIMG_2711 - Copy.JPG You can see a bit Mazda red on the light bar bracket, mmmm...Silverwater GP. Cheers.

    What size front springs have you got as you may want to go bigger. Your Kat looks good mate.

    Thanks Nick, Have no idea of spring size but will be removing the light bar and this will let the front dip without hitting for now.

    Bugger! I was warned about that sort of situation developing when I was toying with the idea of running a pair of small H1 type headlights moulded in to the bottom of the front cowling... apparently in stock trim at full lock it's possible for the forks to hit the shark fins when bottoming out, so I don't think your situation is a new one...

    And in preparation for the next WSID bike night I thought it would be a good idea to put the other three stronger clutch springs in. Since last time I ran her she showed signs of clutch slip at full noise mid track. IMG_4387 - Copy.JPG Hopefully the threebond repaired damaged gasket keeps the oil inside.

    Yep, they should make a difference! Threebond is good stuff, should do the job nicely I'd reckon.

    OK I did say she was no show pony....so I firstly I have been chasing exhaust manifold leaks and the diameter of the exhaust pipe and head were abit different (something like 41mm vs 45mm) also the bolt flange was all but touching the head when tightened, so I had the local engineering shop turn some spacer cum larger diameter flange adapters. IMG_4734.JPGIMG_4735.JPG OK leak sorted. Then even though they are ceramic coated they still have managed some surface rust soooo I applied some 1800degC never seize, you know anti corrosion and very heat resistant. Has an initial burn off then leaves a silver coating. Oh well see how it goes. IMG_4790 - Copy.JPGIMG_4791.JPGIMG_4792.JPGIMG_4794.JPG A week of travel with 100+degC head heat and still there. Cheers Andrew.
