    I got some time on the bike this weekend.
    My big airox didn't quite work- it was stopping the tank from sitting properly, so back to the normal airbox lid.
    I did a few laps of the neighbourhood, maybe 20ks. No leaks for anywhere, so that's a bonus.
    The smoking header wrap got me some interesting looks. A raucous V4 and so much smoke the bike should have been on fire. Pretty fucking cool.

    High beam stopped working, may just be a loose connection.
    and the program for the rapidbike just finished downloading, so I am hoping I can do some average mapping before Friday, but I may have to finish making the map as I ride down.

    Your welding is beautiful, Gitz.
    Apart from Gitzy's welding, if anyone needs braided hoses or fittings, Auto One in Castle hill is awesome.
    A wall full of raceworks fittings, hose, and the right cutting tools.
    I went in last Saturday, they cut a new piece of hose (under $10) and helped me fit it back together. They have some specialised tools from raceworks that means they will be able to sell all the gear as well as "officially" assemble it, too.
    Nice change from buying random shit from ebay.

    And I will be extending my headlight wiring. It's just a teensy bit short. Joy.

    I may have to go to bed early on Friday night in cooma.
    I seem to find little things that I need to do before I can get to the big things, but I'll put in a couple late night.
    Intermittent problem with the front right indicators, so removed the connectors and soldered.
    Then the same thing with the headlights. Broken wire, no new connectors to replace the H4 plug, which meant I had to use a random 4 pin plug I had, and cut/solder/crimps new ends. Female side done, will do the male side tonight. On the plus side uit meant that since the airbox was back out to get to the harness, I thought I would reroute it a bit better.
    Then I noticed that one of the screw holes to screw the airbox lid on is threaded, so I will fix that with plastic epoxy tonight and use a self tapper.

    I cant wait to ride this fucking thing.

    Ive given up on my custom rad and bought a new ebay TLR1000 top rad.
    Why?
    the custom one was good enough for high speed, but below average for traffic. And no room for more fans/better fans. Since its a 42mm core, the front of it just touched the new MT09 front guard. No room to move it up or back.
    So a choice between changing the rad and fork extensions.
    extensions would have solved clearance (and more ground clearance is always good) but wouldn't have solved the cooling.
    so new rad because it solves both.
    SV650 or TLR?
    SV650 is 10mm narrower, but isn't curved. And I KNOW the TLR works on my bike, with my forks, etc. And it usually has a lower rad, so I could do a water/oil heat exchanger down the track.
    So the TLR rad won. it got delivered today, and I'm getting the inlet side switched over (like I did for the last one) tomorrow.

    anyone want a fairly small radiator?

    and double thick core is not always better. At high speed, very good.
    commuting speeds its a bit shit because the air doesn't make it all the way through the rad, if you know what I mean.

    I'll measure it in the morning- my garage is outside and down a few sets of stairs. its about 350W x 140H x 42mm deep.
    25mm inlet on the right, 19mm outlet bottom left, bung for a thermo fan switch, etc etc. and M6 bosses on the sides of the tanks for... whatever.

    Sooo, time for an update.
    As mish has her L's, and the MT09 gets moved on for a LAMS/commuter bike, the VFR has gotten some love. And Rego, it also needs rego.

    So, TL Rad and fan is one. I changed the Orings in the water joints - when I took them off, the orings were a part of the cast ally. They were perfectly flat, ands I had to scrape them out.
    I cleaned the throttle bodies as well, and took of 17.5 years out of the 18 years of gunk. Just out of the inlets, I didn't worry about the outside, really. Not quite perfect, but much, much nicer.
    Cleaned up/shortened some wiring.
    With the airbox and throttle bodies out, it exposed some "hanging on by a strand" connections. Tried a 6 pin mini molex connector for my dash. Twice. Gave up and used a 6pin deutsche connector, much better.
    Not perfect, but better than it was.
    Waiting on 1 hose from Honda before I can refill the coolant system.
    Airbox back on tonight, hopefully.

    It made vroom vroom noises tonight. Need to bleed/burp/top up the coolant, then i should be able to take it for a lap around the block, and either be very happy, or very, very, pissed off.

    So, 4 new sparkugs later, and we are good to go.
    And i was followed by an unmarked cop bike while i was taking it for a test ride. Since he didnt pull me over, it must be legal enough.

    Is it rego'd? I guess the bikes don't have Automatic plate recognition like the cop cars do...
