Nice to see consistency in motorcycle manufacturing and assembly. Anna's MT-07 needs a new tyre. OK, 5 mins to remove it and take it to shop. Nah.
2 years old (we've had it a year) and axle never been out or seen any sort of lubricant. Maybe assembly guy just gobbed on it before inserting.

Grease isn't allowed on assembly lines, it attracts dust. :roll:
'For a ha'pence worth of Copaslip, the axle was lost....' :old:

Fronts should be longer than rear.

Sorry Delw, was looking at Spondon`s Yam. Seems to be fixed to the handle bars.
1977 xt 500. They changed soon after, like Jap stuff did every year.

I'll do a picture later Col, they are all over ebay and are dirt cheap, £20 a pair cheap, they are pretty good but I'm a bit of a tosser when it comes to this sort of thing so if your patient you can have mine for nowt when I eventually find a pair of new old stock fronts from somewhere.
Try a look at this.

Not really, you would need to go out of your way to knock one off, where as if its fastened to the side of your headlight you have easily broke an indicator, headlight, headlight mounts in a light off.

Winter maintenance commenced. Forks and Shock out for service ( at http://www.brooksuspension.co.uk) including re-chrome. Thankfully these guys can do the XB shock, not Tubers though. The re-chrome work however requires them to dismantle the forks and send away.
The fork bottoms and shock spring will be nicely powder coated on return. Hopefully all back in 4 to 5 weeks.
Good job the after market exhaust can handle the weight of supporting the bike on a couple of jacks.
Idle Pulley needs sorting as the anodising is wearing. Likely I'll order a new one and then visit a local anodiser to keep this one as a spare.
Other jobs not quite so in-depth, just plugs, HT leads and lubricants.

Del , just watch that hydraulic trolley jack they can go down over time and all the weight will be on the scissor jack at front . or all over the floor if it fell off :o :coat:
I would be interesting to know how brooks suspension get on with the rear shock , are you having a strip ,new seals , oil and re-gas ?

Checking it regularly Barney but thanks for the warning.
Shock service is advertised as

• Inspection of all parts for wear or damage.
• Inspection of piston rod for straightness and polish
• Strip and thorough clean of piston assemblies, clean and flatten pistons
• Replace all oil seals, dust seals, o-rings and bushes
• Rebuild shock absorber with high quality Motul Factory Line fork oil
• Charge with Nitrogen
