I picked up my parcel of parts for Eric from Japan this morning before work.This evening near the end of my work day, I got a call from the transport company about the blue CB250 RS from Adelaide asking it could be delivered tonight. Of course I said yes, I’d be home tonight!
First up, the contents of the parcel, plus the battery I still haven’t installed!
So of course I had to install something from the box of parts before the other bike arrived. I decided to install the indicator relay.
The rubber loop on the right is where it should be. Plugged in the wires as they were nicely colour-coded on the relay.
I put it back in its place but forgot to get a photo of that, as I noticed the rear brake light switch wasn’t connected and decided to fix that.
Next I attached the fuel tank strap.
This one has a key that works!
Next up I started on replacing the steering lock, as this came as part of a matching set of locks with the tank strap and the helmet holder.
The face-plate had to come off to get to the screws for the lock.
I put it on the seat for safe-keeping and was just about to tackle the screws for the previous steering lock now that they were accessible.
The transport guy had arrived with the blue bike!
By this time it was fairly late in the evening, so it’s off to bed so I can get up early and go pick up a red one tomorrow morning…
