Great thread, especially the painting bits

If you haven't got one here’s the mini DA I use. Really handy, came in a kit with 2” and 3” [50 and 75mm] pads and sanding discs. But fit a sponge pad and it’s ideal for polishing or cutting too. Use a reasonable amount of air, my compressor will keep up but runs pretty much all the time. Similar item http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-75mm-Air-Mi ... 4d0dfda26d

I have to say this is one of the best value tools I've bought in a long time. I use with course pads for sanding welds, 2000 discs and polishing sponge just for applying polish

The 150/60 BT090 fits ok on the rear of a stock S. Much stickier than a 92

Sorry didn't realise it was a KR1
S runs a 140 as stock so the 150 is ok

Hi all went out on the beast tonight, adjusted the carb needles, slowed the air down on the hot side, run a lot sweeter, pushed her up to 110 no worries 2 gears to go as well, bit more fettling and a plug chop to see where I'M at. Also the engine sounded a lot less rattle, nicely tweaked, happier KR1 and owner :lol: :lol: :lol:

remember : plug chop doesn't tell you much. you can only use it for a certain condition and you need to perform it immediatly.

for example : you want to know if the mains are good, ride with the throttle wide open long enough (20-30sec?), hit the kill switch, stop the bike and check the plugs.
same for needles, but with throttle +/- halp open.

just making a tour of miles and miles and then checking the plugs won't tell you everything is fine, it will only tell you it's last condition before stopping the engine.
You know it's cold outside when you trip over dog shit instead of standing in it.
