As seen on Chop Cult with more pictures here.
Of which none went down tonight. Ended up staring at the bike all night and playing with different tanks and bars.
This is a handy little trick i read about somewhere. If you want to make sure your sliders are all the way down and the idle screw is just touching, also to make sure the sliders starting to lift at exactly the same throttle position then use two (or how ever many carbs you have) popsicle sticks to show you in more detail what is going on when the sliders move.
I haven’t thought about snowboarding for a while but for 5 years I dragged my ass around the world doing seasons in America, New Zealand and India. I haven’t watched any videos, looked at my snowboard or really been for a shred. This video made me want to go more than ever. The last section around 9:10 gets me going and I really need to start planning that Alaska Heli trip I have always dreamed of doing. There is nothing quite like standing on top of a mountain that only you and your buddies just hiked with no one else around and only the sound of wind whistling on your jacket and feeling the freeze on your exposed face.

Start of another build for a friend. Stripped off all of the stock chrome oversized pieces. Still it looked really good stock and might one day prove to be a shame to change such a nice stock bike but ill leave that to the old boys to count nuts and bolts.
Stripped the t110 engine over the last couple of days. Trying to save money so not paying for blasting and do it all by hand. It takes time but should be a good reward in the end. I even went as far as splitting the crank and cleaning oil the elusive sludge trapped which lived up to its name. Now im just waiting on crank nuts and bolts which have to be replace, big end nuts, gasket set and engine bolt set. The head came apart with little effort but was a bugger clean. I found some spacers under the valves springs which makes me thing ill have to replace the valve springs also. Im not really looking forward to the gear box but really just want to see how it works so will tear it down, give it a clean and put it back together.
I managed to ruin about 3 rolls of film over the 4 days I was there so only came away with a few good shots. He are a few I managed to snap.
The croud rolling in on all kinds of machines on show day was as amazing as the show itself.
Nico knackered after 2 days of walking around the show and Tokyo.
