Yeah after seeing Matt’s lift (cheers Matt!!!) that’s when I went looking and that’s when I got the superbike package 3 I didn’t have the space or really the use of the lift but I wanted the wheels off the ground purely for storage and long standing periods and I can also roll it in to the corner of the garage and leave it out the way on trickle charger.

Have you got a trickle charger too? That was also one of the best motorbike buys, cheap and never have to worry about the battery at all, my stood for about 6 months hit the start button bang first time start.

Ok update time - On Monday I decided to pull the bike out.

Got a lot of goodies turn up and also ordered

So first thing was to get rid of the Bar on the tail seat. Not a fan and was rusted in areas so it had to go which I really think looks a lot cleaner.

You will also notice a few other changes

So first I set about changing the faded decals. I want to go for a Gold/Black/White/Carbon them. So ordered the ZX6R Tail decal and Ninja decal which was dispatched from Portugal. Due to copyright issues I had to get the Kawasaki decals specifically done by finding a supplier so still awaiting this.

I then also ran into a problem I removed the monster sticker and found a crack underneath the sticker on the nose. This was a bit disheartening so now on the look out for a replacement nose. I have in the mean time used a yoshimura sticker to cover the area.
I also found another crack under the seat but this is something I was already going to replace in carbon fibre.

I then ordered some socks just to cover both cylinders sticking to the yoshimura theme

I am finding I really want to concentrate on items rather than detail until the weather is bit better

there is a few other parts have come to be fitted.
I was really not a fan of the Big tail on the back so have brought a new tail tidy which will looks awesome with some carbon Led Indicators
I had to source some washers so screwfix was the place which are currently in silver. (Will be sprayed to black)

Another few orders have turned up but still awaiting more much to the wife annoyance on the postmen being my best friends at the moment

Hopefully will be getting these fitted.
I am no mechanic and mechanically minded is not my thing but Technic & Lego is so fitting the screen will be easy
I hope this will change throughout this process of modding/owning the bike

As for the Braided hoses I am going to read into fitting these but any tips or how easy it will be great

Heres my new Double Bubble in light smoke from Zero-Gravity

20180214_102542

The braided hoses are really nice, They are carbon with Gold ends (Cannot remember there exact names)

20180214_102545

I still have more parts coming but i'm hoping this weekend I can get a lot of the parts fitted and may even give her a good detail.

It is also Pay Day - YAY so more goodies may get ordered on my spreadsheet but awaiting 2 companies to come back with quotes/Invoices on my plans

I have also booked a full day training to then book my Tests

Happy Riding

Sam

The biggest part of a hose swap is bleeding the brakes. Follow this guide for reverse bleeding and it will be really easy


Brake fluid is very corrosive on paint. Make sure you have a lot of rags everywhere around the caliper or master cylinder when you crack open the banjo bolts.

Always use new copper/crush washers around the banjo bolts, never reuse old ones.
