Threw together a quick drawer utensil organizer out of some leftover red oak I had already planed down to 3/8" and 1/4".

Nothing much, just an oil change and coolant flush. After that I cleaned the tablesaw top down to just the cast iron. It was pretty nasty before.

On my FJR1300, new spark plugs, oil change, final gear oil change and greased splines on shaft, mounted and balanced rear tire. My first time, because I hate giving my money to the stealership.

I took pics of my bike tonight in my garage

stator upgraded, converted to DC rectifier (for heated gear, auxiliary night lighting, fan, etc), radiator thermostat and OEM fan, 6.3 gal acerbis tank, Spot Satellite Locator Gen3, Promoto billet kickstand, "stevewfl" tugger strap, Scott's damper/billet submount, ironman sprockets - 14/49 gear ratio, KTM hardparts skidplate, wired (heated gear, tire pump, USB, GPS, Android), SeatConcepts seat, HDB handguards, mirrors, billet topmount bar with RAM and electrical switches, TM KTM chainguard, grips, headlight upgrade, Giant Loop luggage. I also opened it up and checked valve lash clearances. These silver Excel rims are the "spare" set.












Teressa is trying to turn me into a KTM fan-boi! Some of the Valentine's Day gifts


My usual outtake, the light upfront is ProFoto brand, there is another light hidden behind the bike firing into the wall for the bright contrast in the shots


Its a lame garage that looks like this usually

Just a backrest. I went with a tall one to make the passenger comfy. Fortunately 4 bolts and the tall part comes off.

Wired in a 12vt outlet on the wee. Spent over an hour deciding on what would be the best ground. Ran wires for a set of led's. Figured out how I want to wire in my fuse block. Looked for a good accy wire for the relay, and failed. Continue tomorrow.

Shoveled a bit of snow, washed off the truck. Brought the Vstrom out and washed it also. Got up to 42 deg F outside today!

Bought a thumb warmer for the sled at fleet farm. Not sure how to stick it to the throttle so I used Ultra Black silicone. 24 hr drying time we will see how it sticks. May have to use small zip ties...

Try the hot lead to your horn. It will be on a keyed circuit, and only gets intermittant use.

Took project Stinger off the saw horses and onto the motorcycle jack. Then put the front wheel on and the carbs.
