Happy Birthday.

Well today is Juniors birthday and he is 18 so we have been to the pub and he bought his first beer and didn't get asked for ID, Tick that off the list.
Mind you he still looks like he is 12. I bought him some camping gear, found a sleeping bag in BCF that was 0 degs and packed down real tight, found out why, it only fits half of him in it. Read the tag dickhead, "great for small kids"


Hey listen to this, picked up a parcel today from the post office, it was my 2nd hand engine cases for my new engine build to put into Bike 1. Got home and opened up the box and here are 2 mint cases.
Hey look Junior there is another package in here, I wonder what this is, maybe old mate has given us a heap of excess engine bits or something. Ummmmm very strange, Tape wrapped around it all, Australian Post Quarintine has inspected this parcel. Ummmm what the fuck. Open it Dad. It looks all wet inside Son. Stand back as I open the bag. Poooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr the stink. What the ???? We pulled out the contents and find 2 toothbrushes, 1 lip gloss, 3 packet spicey mince addative and 3 cans of beer, 1 full 2 punchered. All I can work out is old mate has sent me 3 beers with my order to say thanks and Aus post has picked it up in the Xray and knifed 2 cans being smart and put some rubbish in there as well and resealed the whole thing as if to say dont smuggle shit in here.
Bet there still pissin themselves. quess what, I can't get the smell out of my hands, washed them 20 times. Fumented beer , 43 degs heat, = RANK.

So back to build of bike 1, Got the engine cases, mint condition but I have decieded to rebearing the whole thing, One of the main bearings had a mark in it that you could catch with your finger nail, so with the price of the build climbing, I mose well do it right. Went down to the local CBC bearing dealer with Junior and they can get all the bearings bar 1 RHS Main bearing which is $63 out of the USA through Kawasaki.



I priced all the parts in Australia through my local motorbike shop minus the piston and they wanted near $1000. Online through "Kawasaki parts house" in the USA they wanted $468. go figure. I love to support the local shop but this shit is gettin outta hand. But the catch, $500 postage for an engine gasket kit, cylinder liner and 2 cam chains. I did some snooping and found "Reship.com" you sign up for a small fee, get an American address to send your stuff to and then when it arrives they post it to you in Australia for 1/4 the price. It will cost me $70 postage for that stuff. I'll let you know if it works in a few weeks.

Took my barrel into my mates business and bead blasted it, came up great, especially around the oring grooves that seal the bottom of the liner.



Cheers Fogo

Seems your seller may have a sense of humour.

All my parts are ordered, getting up around the $1600 mark. great $1600 of new engine bits for a $2000 bike. makes sence, should of just burnt the fucker, and the couple hundred dollars I spent to pay Quriky to come rescue me.

Anyway Kermits new heart turned up from Germany yesterday, Wossner piston, almost to pretty to put inside him and abuse the shit out of, but he will have to get used to it again.


Cheers Fogo..

I feel sorry for Aaron.

Imagine the Embarrassment already, son of the ass-man.
But one of the best stories ever told.
Keep up the good work.

Shit Shit Shit

There’s trouble in the camp.
I need to learn to leave shit alone after nightshift.
This is how it went,
Quick flick through the manual, revove the valve guides, yes, knock the guides out from the top after heating up the area with a butane torch, Ahhhhh shit I’m tired, yep done that now for the tapping, Tap Tap Tap knock bang belt flog ping, oh there it is, well half of it. oh fuck that looks ugly. Just read this book again, yep thats right. I might just tap it out the other way, somethings not right. Tap Tap ping, theres the other half. Oh shit the book said knock it out from the top, but they meant knock the guide from the bottom out the top. result fucked head. I knocked another guide back in and the valve is now on the piss. Took it to two engine reconditioners today and they both said throw it in the bin. Looks like I'm up for a new head.
Oh that’s right THEIR DISCONTINUED. This may be the end for Kermit.
Anyone want a KLX650 frame to push their kids around the back yard on.

Cheers Team Shitbox,

liven up to its name.
