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.
(did you see what I just did there Smile )

Take it easy on those watery curves.

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.
