    Haha you are correct but a month of working from home and no commute has given me time to complete the engine thumbnail_IMG_20200704_142107.jpg

    You move quick! Look at that! Engine is back in and ready to fire! Looks like it with the carbies being on. How is the wiring ?

    The carbies are there for a test fit as i am fabricating mounts to put smaller side covers in place that don't cover the pod filters, for information side covers off a suzuki GN 250 fit perfectly just need the mount points installed (on the battery box), I will post a picture of them in place over the weekend.
    The wiring had sat for 10 years and every connection had to be checked, every fuse box connection was an open circuit which until i realised was a nightmare for trouble shooting, as well as removal of some really dodgy later additions hidden in the loom.
    I have removed all the unnecessary wires, have removed the light relay (backup lighting box) removed the starter safety relay , rectifier and regulator, and am converting from points to a hughs handbuilt PMA and timing system (its on the long boat from the USA), its incredible how much wire can be removed :), I have kept all the original parts in case anyone on here is after an OEM bit of kit.

    so many small parts were missing from the bike that it currently feels like i'm paying the mortgage at Geoffs XS - LOL
