    maybe they removed the bearings, found they were still in good condition, washed them and repacked them without drying them out properly and re installed your old bearings and when you rode it the cleaner they used and didn't clean out properly has oozed out spreading shit all over your disc.......just a thought...lol

    Shop called - they say it's def a pinch in the seal and it's resulted in a small split. They're going to pull apart, clean and check and replace with a new seal - no charge, (incl cleaning the shite from the rim where it's had the splatters)

    And we're discussing the cost of a set of brake pads - at the moment, I have them paying 75% for the pads.

    Once the pads are in and the seals installed, we'll come to a final arrangement.

    Well, I'm glad that's over with.. Holy Crap indeed..

    Today, (and a bit of last Friday) I replaced the 6 engine mounts.
    What a prick of a job.

    But, after the original mounts just falling out into my hand, I reckon they all needed doing.

    The front ones were totally rooted, fucked one could say. What I thought was a split was actually space between the bush and the mounting.

    The middle/top ones not too bad, but still fell out real easy.

    The rears, almost as bad as the front. No wonder the engine was walking in the frame

    While I was in the area, did the rear braided brake line too..

    Now, sitting on the couch with ice packs on my knees

    Well done Otta, bike is looking cool and the engine mounts would be the last major replacement, it may as well be a new bike as you've replaced basically everything, a new paint job , well done ,a shit hot outcome

    Thanks Carni, appreciated

    It's been a rewarding exercise. Hopefully I won't need to touch these things again for a while.
    I'm waiting on some parts from the US, and it'll be back together real soon.

    I was warned when I joined up here about the mod bug :)
