    Did the rear pads on this on Saturday...

    Think the previous owner got his moneys worth out of the old ones...

    I'm going to have the valve clearances sorted by a local engine builder then a full service (by me) before it gets it's next outing on the first weekend of April.

    Out on this bad boy for a days motocross tomorrow.

    Should be a decent day, up against my mate and his 450 KTM so should keep it entertaining ;)

    Had three good sessions on this since buying it now.

    Wildtracks, Whaddon MX and a days blatting at my mates farm

    Now, I bought this cheap knowing it would need a bit of work so having spent some time on it I can now start to get it how I want it.

    1. Rear pads knackered - Done
    2. Starting is an issue, can get it going but it's not right - suspected valve clearances (a semi regular maintenance task on these anyway)
    3. Clutch needs adjusting
    4. Brakes need bleeding
    5. one Fork seal is leaking badly so will rebuild both forks
    6. Suspension is way too hard.

    And other than the chavvy stickers which I'll sort it seems pretty good. Plan is to do the work over the next few weeks before getting out on it again.

    booked this into GET racing for the week after next to have the valve clearances done and a general engine fettling.

    Ill sort the other odds and ends and we should have a nice reliable bike :)

    Picking this up from GeT racing later this evening. Can't wait, was out on Sunday and had to borrow a CRF150 so will be good to get this back. It's had...

    Oil and filter
    New air filter (genuine Honda)
    Carb serviced and set up properly
    Rear suspension serviced, linkage bearings changed
    Front forks rebuilt
    Bars reset correctly
    Chain set correctly
    engine checked over confirming recent refresh is true (which is good!)

    Should be a cracker now. This lot only cost £230 and I bought the bike cheap knowing it needed work so for £1750 so far i've got a cracking little bike.

    Will just want some tidying up (sticker kit etc) which will probably be another £100 or so and we are sorted.
