Loz's Minja

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' at netrider.net.au started by VTRBob, Aug 10, 2007.

  1. The story of Loz's repairs .

    So far, the front rim is on its way from Sydney along with some indicators that are in one piece. :LOL:
    An after market mirror has been procured and will be fitted as soon as it arrives as well.
    I'll post up more as the TLC continues but so far the repairs have been rather mild. Here is the poor girl with her arse end all bared for the camera


    with the rear shock removed, we found a slight wear mark in the balance hose and that had failed under the shock of the sever compression from Woodsy's adventure. A new hose was knocked up [ thanks to the guys next door @ brakepoint ]


    A quick service, some new oil/regasing and all realigned to the settings/measurements taken when we stripped the shock.


    Followed by a few minutes to refit in the ming, and all is good again.
    The bike is now back in my garage now so I can administer more TLC over the w/end which i'll add here as things progress.

  2. :shock: :shock: :shock:

    I think i've missed something!

    What the hell happened??

    Removed and stripped the rear wheel, sprocket is cactus and will need replacing, as well as the bearings [ not from the off they are roo ted and need replacing regardless ]

  14. Legendary work Bob, can't thank you enough. Chuck a $100 tip on the bill, I'll pass it straight to Woodsy... ;)

  15. Not much I could do today, other than some OT at work. :twisted:

    But got home around 3ish and thought bugger it.

    Loz I found your back wheel under all the grime


    Then I got real busy and cleaned your chain / swing arm etc


    Then mucked around and found the perfect place to mount your rebound canister since the mounting bracket is broken from the off.

  16. Bob that's a shit job... they aren't even lined up.... hope you have it fixed before we get back!!!! :wink:

    cheers stewy
  17. What they said :)

    Loz is on his way with the final part ... Rear sprocket , and Stewy ?? guess who has the front mudguard bolts in his gearsack ? hmmmm :roll: :LOL:

    I've been pulling in favors all over town to get this baby back up and mobile in record time and as cheap as possible :)
    The exhaust bracket is all welded and back on.
    New mirror
    New wheel bearings
    A dozen or so zippy ties to hold the fairing together and on :p
