Ok Ok Ok!

Been getting distracted by MALcontents in the area, and seem to be drinking more beer since my visit to the magical land of Bungendore.

GRiSO is smiling, after being rollerised, serviced,balanced, tuned and beetilified with the new roller map.

Have done about 900k's since the conversion, and could not be happier, engine is smooth and power rolls on beautifully. The latest run up and down the mountain netted an Average fuel use of 5.2L to 100k. Giving it a fist full around Local area and in town use was about 5.5L/100k.
So, no complaints there!

The most difficult part on the roller trip was getting to Pete's workshop.

Load the float, and convince wife its OK to screw timber stops into the floor.

slight hiccup on the road to Bungendore. Blew both rear treads off, put on a dodgy spare and limped 30k to tyre shop to replace all FIVE tyres. Mad

Also found one of the rims had split, luckily a replacement was found in amongst the junk at the back of the shop.

Finally arrived, met Pete and Jude at the local, and drank Beer.
Next day pete worked his magic and the rollerisation and inspection of innards was complete, sump and filter was clean. All looked OK. Fingers crossed fired it up. Yay  Very Happy sounds good.

Went to local, drank LOTS of beer.

Day 2, was test ride day, the engine was initially doughy with various maps installed, found that the cat in my Termi had been partially clogged from an over fuelling issue when the plug cap was damaged.
Pete installed his Termi can and installed the Termi R map again, Test ride = Success.

Went to local and drank LOTS of beer again.

Day 3, A few more finishing tweaks, test ride and load GRiSO back into trailer.

I can't thank pete enough for the effort he put in to getting me back on the road again, and Mark for the new roller map.. The best thing about the trip besides getting the GRiSO healthy again was that I learned a LOT while assisting pete.
With wallet suitably plundered and pillaged, I hit the road home with my five new tyres.
Cheers  Thumbs Up
