Lovely looking thing!

Been having a few charging issues with my NC30, I suspected the stator as the charging rate seemed ok until I turned the lights on, I really couldn't be arsed today but I forced myself, removed the cover to see this:



Ordered a replacement when I got home, least I can do all of this myself and it's a good feeling knowing you've fixed something yourself smash

Looking good, Bobski.

How come it's not persisting down?

Great pair of bikes chaps. I bet they are pretty identical on pace aren't they?

Yes , pretty much mate, we did swap bikes for a few miles, the Duke has miles better drive between the tighter /nadgery bits and where you'd perhaps use second on the SRAD , you can get away with using third on the Duke, the SRAD is a bit faster up the top of the rev range we think, not a lot in it overall, just a different way of getting about!

My physiotherapy (fixing the bike) is coming along nicely despite looking like R2-D2 in my computer chair.

Wheels are away getting plastic coated.
KAIS rear shock is out ready to be replaced by a brand new standard one.
Panels are all de-stickered ready to go off for painting.

The only panels that have been off the bike since it was new are the belly pan and seat unit. Once the side panels and headlight cowl were taken off I was shocked at how plain dirty it is. I've spent most of the day cleaning all the stuff you can't see.

I've also found a couple of broken plastic brackets that need replacing so it's off to see my local dealer for them plus the small engine cover and bar end weight.

I have the cat and link pipe to look forward to cleaning over the next few days plus soaking the chain in paraffin.
