many thanks for your reply.
my dad was a motorcyclist and
taught me and my brother how to
ride and wrench. he went to the
happy hunting ground far too early
and i wanted to carry on the family
tradition of bikers.
i only bought the bike yesterday.
it hasn't not been started for two years.
in the uk you've to have your bike
safety tested and documentated.
this bike had unseen rust holes underneath
the mufflers. it needed a new battery (now
ordered). i've change the oil and filter.
i bought the bike 'as seen'. i was advised
the engine is bulletproof and fingers crossed
it will start. i can't ride until safety
tested and road taxed!
i only want to fit oem parts especially
mufflers, because of oem carb jetting.
i just down know the correct procedure
of replacing them.
a big learning curve!
the rotor is uneven and should've
been replaced. the owner bought new
brake pads and installed them on
a faulty rotor. not good mechanicing
thanks again for all your advice!
looking forward to riding the wing!
