It's just a big Lego kit! Take pics before you strip it and take your time and make sure everything is torqued back up and you should be good!

Re: My tear down and rebuild

Got the rear wheel out to give it a good clean and at same time I thought I wouldclean up the swingarm





Cleaned up the rear shock like new



Decided to clean up and re grease the swingarm bearings. Coming from a motocross background it feels like basic instinct to do these lol






Cleaned them with petrol and re-greased em all. Some needed attention, were a bit gritty!






All cleaned up and working and looking like they should!

Re: My tear down and rebuild

Rear wheel came up looking awesome with some elbow grease. Can't wait to get this back together!




As she sits now, ready to start being rebuilt after I give it a service. Bought a BUNCH of stuff for the bike, should be good!



Cheers

Re: My tear down and rebuild

Hey all, another lil update for y'all!

This update is all from a huge cleaning session I had on the 6

Front wheel back in



Gave the rear brake a spruce up!



Chain and sprocket was caked in shit, so spent a while trying to get all that off!



On to the engine, came up quite well I think





Sorted out corroision and surface rust on the radiator pipe





Much better, not perfect as as some of the corrosion had gone quite deep into the metal

Not too sure mate. I think maybe from the salt they put on the roads when it gets icey? Rest of the bike is ok though!
