    Only because I'm flattering with the photos

    But, thank-you. I tried to find a model in moderately good condition, now I just need to keep it that way.

    Nothing hugely exciting, fitted some Jazz washer jets and the Tegiwa battery tie-down recently. Only got the tie down because the old one was horrifically rusty and the Tegiwa one was around half price.

    The jets are shooting a little high, and since they're a fan design rather than metal jets I'm not too sure how to adjust them, anyone?

    Like wise. I fitted washer jets last week to mine. Try a flat head screw driver. But be careful not to damage the opening of the jets.

    I fitted these last year, the best thing to use is a bluntish table knife. Just ease the centre of the jet down gently until you get in into the desired spot.

    Thanks both, I'll have to take a closer look at them again and go from there. I had worried they might not be adjustable at all.

    Easily damaged so take your time, maybe wrap a bit if tape around the screwdriver head?

    Watchmans screwdriver works perfectly fine.

    Forgot to say thanks to all for the ideas about the jets, they've been adjusted and settled down now.

    Bought some clay a while back too and gave it a good going over. For a first attempt the result was awesome.



    Yeah, I know, rubbish photo (blame a mobile and sunset for the noise), but it felt good to see the end result.

    Also, my exhaust is in the country, last I heard it was slowly making its way through customs... so, so slowly. Hopefully it'll arrive before the weekend. I have J's Racing rear hangers and the front triangle too as replacements for the original OEM stuff, here's hoping the recommendations were worthwhile

    It's arrived, looks like this weekend's going to be busy!

    Well packaged, if a little roughed-up


    Still, they know how to pad it well, which is reassuring


    So shiny!
