going to continue to use this as a slow progress thread.
wee UPDATE, ordered an OEM replacement front brake line kit from HEL (carbon effect, chrome banjo's) however they contacted me saying they had problems with the OEM kitting fitting properly and asked if i could send my stock lines down to be used to develop an updated kit for the future. so the lines are currently with HEL and the new ones should hopefully arrive for the weekend for me to fit (pics to follow)
so anyone ordering an OEM replacement lines for J1-A1P models from HEL in the future your welcome
I also removed the tank pad & stickers the previous owner fitted. looks so much cleaner now, I will fit a new less fussy tank pad before I ride it.
with the stickers removed the paint work was looking a bit sorry for itself and being a bright color there was a noticeable difference in shade from were the stickers had been. so a mate came round and gave the bike a good machine polish to remove the color difference, some small scratches and paint swirls. then 2 coats of Meguirs finest wax.
the pictures don't do it just as its in a dull garage and it was raining outside so didn't want to take it out, however i promise to upload some when the weather clears hopefully again a beautiful backdrop of Scottish landscape but for now.
