    I used an acid cleaner on my Blade engine. Came up great.

    Still lots to do, but you see where I'm going with this back end...

    I started looking for white wall tyres today, but have noticed that I've got odd wheels (in several senses of the word!)
    I was told that they were from an 1100 Virago, along with the forks.
    This appears to be true for the front - it looks like one and has the right size tyre (100/90/19), but the back?
    Gawd knows!
    It's an 18" wheel with a 160/60/18 tyre which doesn't tie up with either the virago or the GPZ900 that supplied the engine - and I can't find that size in a white wall anywhere...

    Incidentally, I went to the lock up and whipped the wheels off the KLR today - they're going to be sand-blasted so I can paint them to match the rest of the bike. The military don't use chrome rims....

    Sadly, that was one of the totally knackered bits, I've got it though so will try to match it up later on in the build. At the moment, the footpegs are my priority and then the exhaust....
    In any case, there's no sprocket on that wheel so wouldn't do me much good!
