One step closer to finally getting her on the road. My vintage club examiner passed her for registration so she should be on the road in the next couple of weeks. Can't wait.

Cheers

That's good to hear! :thumbup:
Pity about the tank tho. If that was caused by underpressure I wonder if one could go the opposite way to fix it. Pressurize it and warm up the dents. Maybe they would pop out. Getting pressure inside the tank would be the difficult part.
If you changed the belts back in 2013 they are due again ;)

I tried pressurizing the tank with compressed air but wasn't sure how far to go and ended up chickening out LOL. I'm going to see a dent removal fella that's in my vintage club and see what he says. I'm amazed at how thin the metal is on the tank to be honest.

She's registered at last. New Historic plates and a new rear tyre. Unfortunately the front is on back order.

I still have a couple of things to do before I get to ride her like putting on a new chain and sorting out the clutch.

Is this the bolt that holds the front sprocket on?.

Next job to is to figure out why there's no pressure at the clutch lever. I'll pull the master off first and check for wear. If that looks ok then I'll have to take the clutch cover off and check out the slave. I think there's something in the FAQ about replacement slave rubbers etc. Maybe off a Monster?.
There's other little things like connecting up the indicators etc but they're only minor....I hope lol. Oh,and a new battery.

Cheers
Andrew

Congrats to the successful registration!.
Yes, that is the sprocket bolt. The 750S came with two different setups depending on the output shaft used (as is shown in the parts catalogue).
Why pull the master cylinder off first? Usually one starts with the simpler things ;) Is there enough fluid in the system and is the inner side of the clutch cover still dry? If that is all ok and if the system is bled again and there's still no pressure I'd check the master cylinder.

Thanks,
No worries I'll check the inside of the clutch cover first. There still seems to be plenty of fluid in the master cylinder. In my experience in the past the master cylinder has usually been the culprit though.

I keep thinking if only she'd done the job "hands free" and hiked up that skirt...
