Thanks cmg , Bikes fairly stock at this stage , New tyres last week and just putting some bling on it at the moment.
I've been off road bikes for about 11 years and only been out on this 3 times so far , still getting back in the swing of things. Been racing a quad in between and still got it (08 700 Raptor ) heres a pic of the big girl as she is now.
Thanks for the welcome too :thumbup:

Cheers guys , the bike was no where near this clean when I got it ,I think it spent a bit of time out in the weather , But it has cleaned up fairly well considering it's age.
It has got a fuel programer of some sort I think , It's got a little box under the seat with about 6 or 8 micro switches on it , got to find out where it goes too.
The ZRX is a mates and is immaculate and blinged to the max

That sounds like my Yellow Box speedometer calibrator.

That is a sweet ZRX. :thumbup:

I had a hard time removing the screws when I was taking my engine apart. The idiotic Philips head on those, plus thread locker, make this job nearly impossible. Even with an impact driver one of the screws did not come out, and the head completely stripped.
I ended up hammering a small 12-point socket over the screw and using a ratchet. That took it out. I replaced the Philips head screws with socket head screws.
Tried this today, best trick in the book mate, thanks!! Worked well.
8mm 12 point socket

Damn, Aussiesteve. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
That looks Amazing.
I tried that myself but I'd gotten the wrong carbon stuff
(I got sent "Sticker" not "Wrap" =39 bucks down the drain).
I've since ordered the 3M stuff and hope to have my Ashtray looking as good as yours.
Well done, Mate.
Cheers from a fellow Aussie.

Thanks Gavin , The 3M stuff is the the best stuff and a lot more expensive
I only bought the cheap shit from supercheap to try and it worked ok :thumbup:
Just take your time with it , use a heat gun or hair drier to soften it and don't over work it.
Not as good as real carbon but only a 10th of the price :lol:
