Me and a few mates are off to Le Mans again in a few weeks time, for my 40th  Shocked
So i need to fix up the Gixxer, i haven't touched it since we got back last year  Rolling Eyes apart from moving it now and then and having gravel fall out of it every time!!

So i finally got round to starting on it yesterday. And by that i mean i took off the gear lever and straightened it  Very Happy










Oh and i've ordered a new set of slicks  Very Happy

Bit more done yesterday. Got that bracket welded on and made a start on the body work. Got the stickers off the back end and slapped a bit of filler on the cracks, and then set too the bottom part of the fairing.
Took bloody ages to get the gravel rashed stickers off in tiny bits  Rolling Eyes  but got em off eventually.

The top bit of the fairing is going to take a bit longer  Sad



















One thing i still need to sort out is the slightly twisted rear subframe  Confused

got a bit more done today.

more fiberglassing/sanding/filling/spraying on the bodywork, and changed the oil/filter and put some new plugs in. Also dropped the wheels in to the bike shop to get the new tyres fitted, should have them back early this week.




















Found a bit more gravel under the airbox Rolling Eyes
