    This is a great watch, bloke takes 10 years of crap off a fireblade, the super-anal way.

    If you've ever bought a bike that needed some TLC, or have been neglecting your duties check it out.



    I loved it for the sheer over-the-top fastidiousness. Sorry for the duplicate post but didn't want this to get lost!

  3. Thanks heaps Arik. I just watched all 5 parts. That guy definately has more patience than me. When it takes me 2 or 3 hours for what I do I don't even want to look at my bike after I finished... I've just had enough of it.

    The next day I'm proud of the cleaner bike though :wink:

  7. Do not clean your chains with WD-40!

    Otherwise it's a great series. :)

  8. from widipedia...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wd40


    The WD-40 company claims it is safe for use on all motorcycle chains, but recommended cleaning products vary among chain manufacturers. Tsubaki Chain and RK Chain recommend WD-40 to clean or displace water on all types of chains, including sealed ring.

  9. I wouldnt use WD40 all over the bike . I just use a rag + old tooth brush and kerosene to clean the chain, brake discs. Works fine !!
