A Clean Cat

Post  thundercatCHRIS on Wed Jan 09 2013, 16:43

After a couple of dirty days I decided to clean the beast. Thought I would share it on here and et some feedback and unbiased reviews on the beast.

The Beast


Scorpion Can


Very Shiny






So . . . What do you all think . . . Honestly

Nah, don't worry. It's fully faired.
And we're a tolerant lot. Take Rosco's 'pile 'o shite', he wishes someone would!

Sorry that's a bit harsh. We'd miss it. After all where else would we go if we wanted a drink of oil (another long story!).

Firstly the bike, very shiny, very tidy very nice, I like a lot, secondly I know Ross's bike likes to vomit oil occasionally and lose the odd spot of air out of the tyres but just remember he's probably the only member that comes on a rideout with a box full of enough spares/tools etc to probably build a spare bike.

At BC last year he had a spare lever after someone had a spill and snapped theirs, plus he supplied the tools at TOL that I took Rozy's bike to bits with after her little argument with the cattle grid.

I won't have a bad word said about Ross's steed Wink

It is a truly amazing piece of machinery and after all it is the man who makes the machine. Wink

Very nice looking bike Chris.
Have you done anything to her or is that they way she came?

I couldn't have anything other than black wheels on mine as the seeing the oil and dirt on them really annoys me and I get urges to clean them.....can't be ar5ed with that.

I know you're well Jel of my bike Greencat and calling it a pile o'shite is a merely a term of endearment. You've been listening to Terry too much and I know he has a thundercat fetish.

Thanks for defending me against the enslaught of abuse I received Steve.

Cheers
Rosco

Ps what kinda Nikon / lens you got there Chris?

Or even Surf & Turf?

I can vouch for Inspector Gadget and his box of goodies. He's a star he is, where would be without him? Still sat at the side of the road probably!!


The muck on Ross's bike keeps it all together so I wouldn't be cleaning it either.

Thanks guys. I personally have'nt done anything to it but i want to put LED lights with a seperate battery and swithch in the wheel arches. Although the owner before me put on: heated grips, d/b tinted screen, scottoiler, rear hugger and some little decals. I am using a Sigma m/f 55-200mm lens for nikon d40.

Very nice, loving the yellow wheels too. If you hadn't put a picture up and just described it I would have thought 'yellow wheels??? Really???' but they really look top notch. Good work!

It may still pass with a note. I forgot to put the baffle back in my Cutdown Beowulf and it still passed. It's down to the Db level.

If you have an iPhone or a Newer iTouch I sure there is a Db Sound app. that will give you a guide on how many Db's your is producing. You have to hold the revs at something like 5-6k, maybe someone else can add more to this.
