So I manage to get some work done over the weekend, not so productive as I would have liked to be, but the holiday vibes is starting to take over....

But none the less...gave the side stand a quick clean with the wire brush on the bench grinder...does take some time but doing the job quite well

And this is how things stand now...

Still awaiting feedback from Basil's Engineering regarding the piston and valves...

Need to start with the carb next, give it a proper overhaull and clean.

And then just cleaning some bits and bobs...

More Kobus,

Dai was op gewees en verbasend in blerrie goeie kondisie, ek het dit net 'n goeie was gegee.

Die XL het glad met hulle uitgekom nie, maar sal graag wil op sit.  Sal kyk of hulle die regte lengte het, dankie.   :thumleft:

Hi Guys,

Been a while since I did an update. Didn't do much work during the festive season apart from some cleaning and looking for parts.

Need to re-bore to 1mm oversize but only managed to get my hands on a 1.5mm piston, so going all out. Also needed 2 new intake valves as it was a bit moeg. Got my hands on a pair from the UK but still with customs at Kempton Park.

Cleaned the sidestand, footpegs, gear and brake lever. Also overhauled the carburetor, new jet, pilot, and air screw, new gaskets, etc. Gave the airbox a proper clean as well.
