Stormchaser

Engine back in my old girl. I'm probably bias but I think this is a neat installation. Yamaha make it so easy. It's a shame they've stopped making them

Biff, the engine looks much better now it's back in the rib, looked a bit lost on the garage floor last weekend! all you to do now is give the rib a hose down and away you go, a good blast will blow the cobwebs away
