Kawasaki ZZR 1100 con rod after a blow up.
Remember to change your oil !!
This made us laugh .... A homemade earth on a customer's Z1000.
Not the best job we've seen !
Z1000 A2 rear brake caliper.
We could have grown our own potatos in the sludge.
Nothing like clean brake fluid.
1976 Honda 400 / 4 carbs. Not been run for 6 years. Absolutely filthy inside and out.
400/4 carbs. After a sonic clean and a rebuild with new jets the bike now runs well for a very happy owner...
Genuine S3 400 in for some rechroming and investigation into bad running and strange engine noise. Top end coming off on Monday morning
S3 400 all ready to go after a complete engine rebuild. The bad running problem turned out to be a melted engine due to poorly set up carbs and timing. Rebore, rebuilt crank, new pistons etc. You really do have to know these bikes to get them right.
Specialist Suzuki GT 2 stroke engine building.
This is one we have just completed for a Austrian customer. It will be on it's way back to Vienna in the new year.

After 5 days a storage fee of £10 plus VAT per day (or part thereof) will apply.

ETHANOL & ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL
Two of the 50 or so chemicals to be found in modern pump petrol.
Ethanol is a fuel with a high octane rating - 113 instead of the low 90's petrol can offer. Isopropyl Alcohol is added to prevent fuel icing.
All looks good so far, but there's a catch ....
They are both water soluble meaning they absorb water from the atmosphere, then dump it in your fuel tank and carbs.
It is impossible to clean every little drilling and airway inside a carb by hand ... it doesn't work.
This is a service we provide when we have a bike in with running problems.
