A couple of long nights as i want to get the motorcycle to an exposition. I don’t know if i can make it fully functional or just make it look functional.
Found some free time and tried to clean the front fork. I say tried as it did not go as easy as it should. I managed to brake a fixed wrench and in the end i used pipe wrenches to crank that baby open.
I left everything to sock in soak in diesel fuel and that used Feruginol to kill some of the rust.
Still had some free time (23 August 2012) so i also cleaned the carbs. They turned out to be in good shape, so i ordered a carb repair kit from ebay and left them to drye.
Just a quick note, i don’t know really know what i’m doing here. I fixed up an IJ56 some time ago, but it mostly had electrical problems and bad bearing.
Around this time i spent a week trying to patch up one of the gas tanks only to tail miserably
