Busy Weekend Fitting Calipers and Getting Van Ready For Pembrey

New calipersI spent a good chunk of Sunday tinkering with the GSXR ready for the coming weekend at Pembrey. I finally got to fit the R6 calipers to the bike. This was a little bit more time consuming than I had thought it would take. I got the required spacers from a person on TDR forum and they required a little turning down to make them fit and to get the lugs out of the forks. I didn’t have the necessary tools to do this so I enlisted the help of a mate of mine to do this. Using a very much a measure lots and cut once it took a good long time. That said I am happy with the results as they really are a snug fit.
The other reason to go to my mates garage was to do a few bits on the van. One issue was get a working speedo and fuel gauge. It’s a common problem on the VW T4 that a connector corrodes on the speedo and just needs cleaning off, how that effects the fuel gauge is beyond me but it does and that is thankfully what it was.

Do you have anything you'd like to add?
