Winter 2003 - Getting ready for 2004
Most images are also a link to a more descriptive page.
Having raced the 2003 season on a slightly better than standard bike I decided that it was time to put some
more effort in. Heres the details:
Serviced the brakes - disks and calipers.
I know, not really a performance enhancement but I couldn't help myself.
I had the cylinder head ported and skimmed.
Allegedly this is the race pipe off of Iain SImpsons Carrick Yamaha FZR600. Allegedly.
Last year I had the rear shock re-sprung and serviced, so this year I thought I'd do the forks.
Back to James Hollands dyno to see if we can get the pipe to work
with the head.
I needed to paint a number board on the front and add the numbers & stickers. Theres also stuff in here about
my quick action throttle and my new leathers, boots and gloves. Oh, and pictures of the finished bike (give
or take some more stickers).
I fitted a Scitsu temp gauge and painted the mudguard blue. Well, I had paint left din' I?
