Continued rebuilding mine after my CCT failure...
Got the cam gears on, did the stopper mod on my new (standard) CCTs (piece o' piss), fitted the cam covers - couldn't put the carbs back on till my 5mm vacuum adaptor arrives in the post tomorrow, so I did some more cleaning of the butt-end bits while it's off the road :thumbup:

Went to the garage and started her, then sat and looked at her like a saddo while she purred at me for a while. Then switched her off and gave the tank a wee wipe

avoid going 15-45 as it will wear a lot faster than you expect due to the same teeth hitting the same links every turn.
make it an indivisible number like 15-46 or something.
you will thank me in 25000 miles, or kick yourself in 8000 for not listening :biggrin

rode it, cleaned it, made lock off key for cct's, started stripping it ready for when the new ones get here from Tray, think i might have done it in the wrong order and should have waited to clean it,
