Motorcycle service, repair & ride out’s at mono motorcycles
A varied week this week at the mono motorcycles workshop, with an eclectic mix of motorbikes joining us.
Monday morning we seemed to have a Suzuki SV650 thing going on at the mono motorcycles workshop! A Silver SV650 joined us for valve clearance checks & Katy’s Black SV650, which is nearly ready for her big reveal!
In this case, the valve clearance check on the silver Suzuki showed that everything was in tolerance, not bad for a bike with 70,000 miles on the clock!
The front shock for the BMWR1200GS which has been recommissioned by Firefox Racing Ltd, was returned & refitted in the mono motorcycles workshop
On Tuesday we welcomed a Aquamarine 995i Triumph Speed Triple in for fork seals & fuel leak.
Wednesday we welcomed back a Yamaha WR450 which we have worked on before. The WR450 seems to be cutting out when the owner has the bike doing long wheelies.
Initial investigation shows that the battery had gone flat because the regulator rectifier wasn’t charging the battery, which was causing the WR to cut out & back-fire in the wheelie position. Parts are now on order for next week.
The Triumph Daytona 675 track bike was back on the ramp on Wednesday, in advance of a Donnington visit this weekend.
Daniel has replaced the servo motor for the valve in the exhaust, to address noise restrictions & has fitted a new baffle, one of many for different tracks.
Wednesday evening we took a ride out to Small Dole, Henfield where we had a fantastic night at Fuel Coffee House first motorcycle meet.
We had a lovely ride from the workshop through the glorious Sussex countryside, to Henfield, East Sussex. What a great venue Fuel Coffee House is & with such a fantastic atmosphere. We enjoyed a tasty lemon cake (GF) Daniel devoured a scrumptious pulled pork roll (Veggie option too) & delicious hot chocolate. The staff were really welcoming & the whole evening had a really friendly inclusive vibe. Congratulations to Fuel Coffee House for what we know will become a very popular motorcycle meeting place.
Thursday morning, our first guest was a Metallic Grey Yamaha XJR 1300 60th Anniversary Cafe Racer, which joined us for servicing.
On Friday we welcomed a regal blue BMW F800GT. The BMW joined us for replacement rear tyre & servicing.
In between he other tasks this week, the XJ900 Café Racer has now got an MOT & is ready to go home. Katy’s SV650 has her new panels & amazing paintwork by Jamie Gladman of JAA Custom Paint ready for a reveal this coming Sunday at our breakfast club this coming Sunday, 28th July.
