Up early and greased the head bearing on the GSX14, MOT said loose, I thought they were tight a while back so I sprayed in some chain lube.
Turns out they were replaced before we bought the bike and they didn't use much grease. So left them loose to make up for lack of grease. Then fuzz fills the gaps and makes them tight. And when the chain lube went in it cleaned out the crud and loose again. 

Cleaned up rollers and races and all looked OK, greased and back in.  :fix:

Didn't have time to repaint the scratch on the engine bars, it'll have to wait until my unemployment celebration ride on Saturday  :auto-dirtbike:

Had a nice ride down to St Davids with Josh and a friend for his work.
It lashed down most of the way there.
Had a cup of tea while Josh got geared up and the cup was being refilled as quick as I could drink it.

Stayed dry for us to have fish and chipsand get around the coastal road to Little Haven and my favorite road back to Haverfordwest where the rain started again.
Torrential rain all the way back home for me.

Really enjoyable day, cheers Josh and enjoy next weekend!
