Its his daily, but i know from my past shit happens, so see how things turn out. Its already been resprayed (Rattle cans), but these will be posted up sometime soon.
The bike had been crashed a few times in the past so they panels needed a bit of TLC.

Why not turn it into a nude like I did mine

Here is my old my old 58 plate rs50

i used mine everyday for 2 years put 15,000 miles on it and 7,000 of them was a tuned airsal 70cc sport kit with many other mods I had 15hp at rear wheel and never had a problem

tuning parts have made a massive jump since you last payed with them now you can get very reliable powerful kits like the airsal 77 m racing kit makes around 17hp at rear wheel and should last a good 10,000 miles (I tune quiet a few engines and I use a mixture of manufactures and my fav is airsal)

Like iv said, the bike had been wrecked previously however came with a fresh MOT and years Road Tax...surprisingly.
So we got it cheap and set on our way to bringing it back to life.

As you can see, this is what it looked like:

And below, we started stripping her:

And starting to paint:

Its all painted now. just being built back up, sorting various problems previous owners have caused...nightmare.
So another update will come along sometime. Not anything special yet, just a touchup really. But not sure where we're going with this bike yet :)

Im currently having a few problems with my bike as when I am driving my bike it seems to splutter. I have recently got a new spark plug as it used to cut out fully. any suggetions on what I should do? and also what other parts/upgrades to get for better performance?. :)

Check the carburator and the Hoses and Automatic Feultap, could be the vacume controled feultap isnt working properly because its defective it self, or the vacume tube is cracked.

What colour is the plugs electrode? should be Coffee with Cream brown, Ash gray is to lean.

Sparkplug should be a BR9ES or BR10ES or similar

I am wondering what type of air filter I should use I have been using the ram air filter but they keep falling off and breaking. my jet size is 94 and don't know if I should use the standard air box. ?
