Shit Baz, sorry to hear about the accident!!! Like someone else said, any crash you walk away from is a good one! Bikes can be replaced and bones heal!!
Hope you get a bike sorted soon, if you haven't already!!!

Well it's been a long time since I had anything to report ............ until now that is  Wink

After a long , hard slog since I returned to work last year , I have FINALLY managed to get my beloved little 650R back on the road  Cool

To be fair , due to the fact it took me quite a while to get back onto an even keel money wise ( after 4 months on the sick after the crash , my finances were in tatters  Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad ).... it took me ages to get motivated into actually working on the bike .
So I would do stuff in my dinner breaks at work for a week or so and then do nothing for the next few weeks ............

Anyway to re-cap what was wrong with my Hyo ........ the swingarm had rotted through from the inside and had a HUGE hole in it and so needed replacing ( by the time I removed it , there was more and the metal was wafer thin Shocked ) .



To do this however involved removing the rear shock and also the rear exhaust downpipe ( which was going to prove a major headache in itself due to the rotten state of the exhaust studs ).

I had bought a used swingarm but this was also starting to rust and so had to be completely stripped , sanded , rust proofed , primed and re-painted ( the pic was taken at the start ) Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

To cut a long story short ....... The swingarm has now been swapped and my little 650R has also been MOT'd , Taxed and Insured , having been SORN for almost 2 years  Cool Cool

SOOO ................. BAZZA IS BACK  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
