11/04/2017: Even the journey of a thousand miles mus start with the first step

With just under three weeks to go before racing at Silverstone, our resident pest and Yamaha Past Masters racer decided it was time to start getting his bike ready. Everyone else had finished in February, so this isn't a bad time to start...

The first thing we noticed was that the rear disc was so warped that we could hardly push it around the workshop. His initial reaction was to suggest skimming, but with stainless discs, this isn't necessary as we demonstrated by reducing the run out on that disc from over 1mm to less than half a tenth, using nothing more sophisticated than a magnetic dial gauge and an adjustable spanner to gently ease the warped areas back into shape. The disc was then deglazed and the pads put back, total job time less than an hour.
