Looks well for its age.
You need a Chris Walker lid for the 1999 look.    :cool:

Made a start this weekend. Just a quick run through to make sure nothing is going to fall off when it gets its first run out.



Everything looks in reasonable order. Managed to set rider sag but judging by the speed of the rebound, I think the shock has seen better days.

For those of you fortunate enough to not be burdened with my incessant Facebook ramblings, my RC8 fell off its stand and landed on my Katana........ what do you think are the chances of there being absolutely not a single mark on either bike?



yep...... not a single mark



I am truly blessed, and not just with looks.

190/55 back tyre and 10mm of washers under the shock mount improves the steering no end.
Front forks are weird too. The preload adjuster adjusts ride height rather than preload. Forks on mine were pretty good with the right rate Ohlins springs and new oil.

Little update, I was trying to get out today at 3 Sisters but a couple of parts have failed to arrive. My own fault for ordering them late.

Stickers off for a start..... I hate sticker monsters


A day spent stripping and degreasing. My FB chums will be aware of my temptation to remove everything but ultimately I don't want it to become another static project, so I've done what I can given the time


By thunder I love my blast cabinet






Cleaned up as best as I can, new shock installed


Shock, chain/sprockets, rear sets and a tart up


Few more bits to blast and finish before it goes back together and hopefully I'll get a couple of track days in before Cartagena in October.

Pretty much ready for some track action save a quickshifter and rear brake line and setting up the sag.
