  • Frame Result




    Posted a week or so ago about my cracked frame. Have had the call from Suzuki dealer to confirm a NEW FRAME is on its way having been authorised by Suzuki warranty department. Because my bike is mainly in bits and I want everthing powdercoating I have to take the old frame in and do the exchange. They have said that a shim kit will be included for the rotary anchor and they will have to check when completed - but thats not going to be refitted anyway!
    I may even push my luck seeing how Suzuki won't have any workshop costs and see if I can get any new bearings



    God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I am so far behind I will never die!

              good deal man, happy to hear it all turned out well
              War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

                      I wouldn't worry to much unless you do LOTS of wheelies

                          Do Sam's trick and stick a supercharger on it then

                          I don't think I've seen his front wheel on the floor yet

                            That would be fun! Ain't seen his thread yet ... gonna look for it! Somewhere I did see a pic of a TLS with a nitrous kit fitted though .... to be honest I prefer nitrous to a supercharger coz it's only there when you need it, thus reducing useless stress on the engine! Even though, knowing me, I'd run out of N2O on a kg tank in a few minutes!
