The front wheel turned out to be airtight thankfully, with a used (free) tyre the bike was finally on its wheels, so I could push it outside and make brmmmm brummmm noises when nobody was looking. But not before I had the local machine shop extend the M18 thread a few mm to match the slightly wider than standard yokes. This didn't come cheap.. cost me a box of Mr Kiplings finest Mince pies ..

Also made a simple hand change and finally got the clutch adjustment right.

Picked up a tired ZZR1100 caliper which fits the ZXR750 forks on the bike. I've ordered new seals for it, and a trip to a bead blaster would clean up the grotty body.. think I'll need to buy another box of Mince pies
