The SF is 3 years old this time & i decided to do some work on the SF.

Both fork seals were leaking so i took them off & dropped them off @ KAIS in Atherton. Nick stripped them down & replaced the ohlins seals with Suzuki GSXR seals as he said they will last longer.
I decided to take off the exhaust system and take it to Camcoat in Warrington. A nice satin black coating on the inner & outer side of the pipes. I removed the flap from the inside of the pipe & had the hole welded up prior to dropping them off. I also found some stainless plugs to blank off the lambda sensors as they were not going back in.
The forks came back & i fitted them noting the correct torque setting for top & bottom yokes. (23nm for the bottom 3 & 35 for the top).
I wasnt over impressed with Camcoat, they have had rave reviews in the past but i was told 2-3 weeks & it ended up 6-7 with me having to push with phone calls to get them done. The work was very good but i feel they need to sort the service side out of it a bit, anyway i digress.
Heres the bike ready for the pipes

Whilst under the bike i noticed the sump was very pitted with the stones from the front wheel. I decided to sand it down to give it a key and hammerite it along with the sides of the lower rad.

Then it was time to fit the pipes, a little frustration to get the bloody things in place. The rear cylinder is a right pain in the arse to fit due to restriction getting the nuts back on.
