Whoever did it obviously thought the rocker cover needed two earthing tangs! Laughing

Sacred screw has been buggered about with.

Only real damage is this shitfest.

It also looks like the lambda sensor has been disconnected. Didn't look to see if the Toad pipe even has a lambda sensor? It runs like shit and puffs out black smoke which makes me think it may have a 'Throw more fuel at it' map in it. I've pulled the map and sent it to Mark for forensic examination.

Well on a good note, Pete, between yourself and Michael you should be able to get it to within a poofteenth of right! Hasn't got a Kool Aid device has it?

I'll cast my beady eyes over it tomorrow, assuming it's at Michael's?

I'll call you from Tarago on my way down tomorrow and you can let me know where to meet up - assuming Michael's...

Oh, one other thing of interest. The key has a tag on it with the name Hanlon written on it.

If anybody knows of a Queensland GRiSO owner or ex owner called Hanlon could they ask them to get in touch with me.

I'd drive out today to say g'day to all but I've been down with the flu since friday night.
Covid tested negative but still feeling like crap.

Hope you packed your floaties for the trip Tony, the weather is shit for road trips at the moment.

The long drops down from the highlands will be running like shit creeks.

Had a moment yesterday towing the trailer to Bunged End - left hand curve, downhill, on cruise control, hit a patch of Hydrogen Dioxide, and I was suddenly at Eastern Creek doing drifts - some poo came out - damn traction control and cruise control together. Disabled Traction control and all was good after that - lesson learned.

Lucky I hadn't picked up the Sport or I might have been wearing a Jersey Barrier! That has messy connotations...

You mean Dihydrogen Monoxide.


If there was that much peroxide on the road, I think there'd be more trouble than just wet roads. Shocked




Cool

Again Mark, you are correct - I didn't think, which was obvious.

Well, we're nearly there.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The *new* pipe arrived this morning, I need to get Craig's 'Half a pretzel' so I can install it and it'll need another toe peg for the brake lever and a front brake lever and it's ready to go to get registered after it's been serviced. It's not the prettiest GRiSO and some bits of it have been monstered, probably by the usual Queensland suspects but at least it's been saved from the knackery.

I've learnt a few interesting little things while going through it too. Dashboard mounting system changed at some point for instance.

Well Craig's 'Half a pretzel' won't work without modifications.

Good news is that I found a brake lever so the front brakes are now operative!

I also spied the Tenni take off bodywork from Ralf's wreck up on the shelf so I think I'll fling that on with a black front mudguard until I can find something sillier. Probably be the only silver frame Tenni in the world!😂

Oh, and that fucking horrid seat can go too, got a Tenni one with the bodywork! cheers

Went and dug out the Tenni bodywork today. It was in a box on the top shelf in Michael's workshop. Got it down and yes, surprise surprise! It was infested with zillions of Redback spiders which are very venomous! How we laughed! I thought my undies would never dry!

Spiders also take a lot of killing if you can't whack them. Unlike insects which breathe through spiracles in their exoskeleton or external tissues spiders have 'Book Lungs' which aren't nearly as susceptible to poisons! I dumped a can and a half of 'Mortein' into the tank and the little fuckers were still running out!

I've left it outside and hopefully tonight's frost will make them piss off. Otherwise I'll steam clean the buggery out of the little bastards.

Arse!

Anyway we're off to Tasmania on Saturday. The tank can sit in the workshop for two weeks and if they're still around I'll deal with them then!

Tee Hee, only little redbacks. I was bitten by one once - was crook for a few days, I was working for a doctor at the time he he said I would be OK in a few days. Turns out he was right. well, hang on, they may explain some other shit!

They make nice toys...

Now we're beginning to get somewhere!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

When I take it round to the other workshop to do the shock linkage, swingarm bearings etc. Michael is going to loose the plot completely! Not only is it missing drain hoses but it's dotted with incorrect fasteners and lots of things like top-hat bushes are absent. That sort of thing really kicks off his OCD, he'll be rocking autistically and gibbering within minutes of setting eyes on it!  Laughing

Now I recon I need to find a CF front guard for it as the black one doesn't look right.
