My box of assorted bits arrived from Japan..
Packing materials Shipping box Package delivery Packaging and labeling Carton


Packing materials Gas Rectangle Font Plastic


First job was to finish the throttle bodies.
Its funny - Kawasaki workshop manual says "replace oring" but to buy the oring, they want you to buy that whole silver fuel pipe with the 2 orings complete. There's a few items like this - luckily you can order through another manufacturer.

Automotive tire Product Font Bicycle part Auto part


Material property Household hardware Font Auto part Cylinder


New injector seals
White Product Font Material property Event


Light Line Font Technology Electronic device


Lightly oil all orings before installing!
Camera accessory Machine Engineering Auto part Gun accessory


Next - the pilot air needle Orings.
Again, Kawasaki manual says "replace the oring" but they will only sell you the whole needle, washer, spring and oring combo. $20, when you only need a $1 oring!
Suzuki parts it is again..
Liquid Fluid Font Aircraft Material property


Tiny drop of oil on the oring and screw it all in to the TB until its lightly seated.
These will be adjusted properly later when I balance the throttle bodies when the bike is running again..
Font Line Red Gas Circle


Throttles sorted and ready to go back on the bike!

Back in I think 2016 or thereabouts, Australian Design Rules deleted the need to have the rear mudguard / fender extend past a point 45 degrees perpendicular to the rear axle - in other words, not so bloody long!

Taken from ADR42:
  • The requirement for the rear mudguard to extend to a 45o angle has been removed in the latest ADR. Reducing the length of the rear mudguard to ADR 42/04 requirements is permitted provided it meets all the following requirements:
  • it continues to protect other road users, as far as practicable, against thrown-up stones, mud, ice, snow and water and to reduce for those users, the dangers due to contact with the moving wheels.
  • all brake, taillights and the number plate light are positioned in compliance to current ADRs.
  • the number plate is visible from 20m within an arc extending 45o to each side and above, and horizontally to the rear.
Having said all that, each state can make it's own interpretation to some degree!

Isn't the law just great!!

Western Australia likes to be difficult with these things. I'd hate to get rejected due to having a cut tail!
Plus, my plan later this year (hopefully) is to ride this bike over to Phillip Island for the MotoGP's. (I've missed a few years!)
The giant ugly flap isn't a bad addition for the highway... especially when we enter South Australia where there's always road works Keeps crap off my Ventura rack

Yep, I can agree with that.
You'll have to let me know when you're swinging through my area, never know, may be able to catch up for a short while!
