The many many hours working on it day and night are all worth it looking at pictures like this #V4 #nc30 #400greybike

Not what I wanted the cbr to be looking like just before bike season..... carbs off again and cleaned, then the engine serviced.

And it's done, swingarm fully stripped, brushed, new bearings and the finishing touch the homemade rear hugger, 3d printed and carbon skinned.

Really happy with the results, makes the rest of the bike look a bit grubby so more work to do #neverending.

Any 3d printing, carbon skinning or bespoke/one off project you can think of? Just get in touch.

Managed to get the 400 a little bit out of shape through the last corner at Combe. Twas nothing but a wobble at about 80mph. 📸 @hairy_beast_pix #400greybike #ukclubsport #birotaruk #zxr400 #kawasaki #racing #racer #castlecombe #f400 #ngrrc #clubracing #motogp #race #sideways #driftking

Love it when a plan comes together.

Been thinking about combining these 2 things for a while, 3d printing and carbon skinning!
This is a rear hugger (mudgaurd) for my #honda #cbr400 #nc23 track bike. The original was shabby so thought I'd make my own.
3d printing alone would not be strong enough but with a skin of carbon fibre (2 layers in the higher stress areas) it feels very strong.

I'll be looking at using this combination of techniques on many more parts in the future.

Get in touch if you think you have an idea were this would work, always happy to take on interesting jobs.

Had a class weekend doing some knee skids with good people. Came away with two 2nd places and a 39 point lead in the championship. Pulled a monster move on @uptheduchy before he cleared off and broke his own lap record. Weather was ansum, company was class, bike was faultless, and it only took me 30 minutes to get home. #ukclubsport #birotaruk #400greybike #zxr400 #ngrrc #castlecombe #racebike #racer #castlecombegrandnational #44 #kawasaki

Some parts arrived in the post the other day, I'm delighted, I've been wanting a HRC temperature gauge for a few years. Almost all the pieces of the HRC manual collected now.... But not all of them !

Circa 1990

Stripped out for the engine refresh

This evening I took part in the very popular annual charity Poker run for the Assisi animal sanctuary. The poker run started off in Bangor where I spotted this lovely RVF400R which was doing the run also and then I was joined by a VFR400R once owned by a friend of mine which still has my old Ethos exhaust fitted, I regret selling that. First stop was in Millisle where I took the quick video to show the queue of people waiting to get their next card for their poker hand..like I said, it's a popular charity run... then the next two stops where a bit rushed but at the end there was only one winner...
4 bottles of Bushes beer from the isle of man
A trophy
And tickets to see Jon Richardson
Delighted!

I hope you enjoyed the beer @koolhandchris

Spent the day today riding around the Silent Valley and around Spelga Dam located in the mountains of Mourne in beautiful sun shine. The roads around there are absolutely fabulous, twisting and winding,hairpins and fast S bends, I really needed to get myself a GoPro to be able to share these roads and my travels with you properly.
Once out of the Mournes I stopped in Newcastle,a popular spot for bikers, for a quick Mr Whippy (ice-cream!) before returning home. A great day out soon to be repeated.
