Well, I have finally got my mates 404e rebuilt and today was its first test / shake down ride.
The wiring..... Well thanks to all who have advised, I managed to remove some Cowboys bodge of the cooling fan wiring.... And he presto all is good, fan works as it should now.
Wheels..... Converted from sm back to enduro, new bearings, full brake service.
Standard exhaust back on, new chain and sprockets, countershaft seal replaced, engine services, carb strip and clean, original air box ( what a chew on) re-fitted, new maxis tyres....new fork seals, converted to silver / blue plastics and small tank......
This week its MOT time.....
Bike is really nice, very quick!
I owned it about 10 years ago and a friend bought it recently and the bike was in need of some major TLC.....but it lives again...... Shame my mate can't reach the floor on it,
Steve...

Passed its MOT today, so it's legal!
Now it needs a few miles for things to settle (or drop off) ..... Then it will be sorted?
