The Mrs. wants to sell the 250 & I've been watching a lot of Wheeler Dealers on Foxtel lately, so I decided to iron out all the little niggles with her bike before we sell, in the aim of getting the best possible price, & hopefully even inspiring a few people to pick up the tools & have a go! None of it is rocket science, it's just a lot of little things: A service which will include: Front & rear tyres, new brake pads all round, new coolant & system flush, new spark plugs, oil & filter change, lube clutch & throttle cable, clean & balance carbs, clean & reoil air filter. Will check the valves, (which I have just learnt are the locknut type, rather than shim & bucket type, JOY!) they were done about 10K ago when the camchain was replaced, but I'll check them to be on the safe side. Greasing & lubing various things like the swingarm & headstem bearings too. Some running repairs: Clean & polish the mufflers (there's some plastic melted on them where a bag rested on them) Remove, clean & paint the exhaust (rust), There are some cracks in the fairing which I will repair with fibreglass, I broke a bolt on the clutch cover when I replaced the gasket (set my torque wrench wrong) which I will need to remove & replace. There's some paint wear on the top yoke & bar risers which I will repaint as well, & while they're off I might as well replace the fork oil too. I think that's it, but I'm sure I'll find some more things along the way. Looks like a lot, but none of it is really expensive or hard, & the aim is to maximise my return & give the buyer a well sorted bike that shouldn't need anything more than petrol & oil for good while. It's a 250, so it'll most likely go to a learner. I haven't looked around at prices, but I would like to get 3K back, which I think it will be worth. Now, we all love pics, here's some before shots!
