    I have just done 2 sets of calipers , not quite that bad tho. Cleaned them out with my snap on pick set and wet and dry paper. Worked a treat.

    Good progress. At the end I ditched my oem calipers. Very happy with replacements.

    Today it was the turn of the rear shocks, new dampers top and bottom . Pushed them out with a g clamp and socket . Squeezed them in with my trusted black and Decker work mate, best present the wife has bought me. Surprised how deformed they were and that this caused the shock to rub against the bottom aluminium lug on swinging arm . Not cheap at $60au but hope they show there worth.

    Forgot to add that while i installed the front mud guard i placed rubber washers between the mud guard and fork legs to get rid of the fine gap that let the paint rub off . Also a rubber washer behind the speedo cable locator on mud guard with a self tapper screw to lock that up as well . Just little things you notice as you play along

    I didn’t realize bushings are available. I will get some next time around. Thanks for the tip!
