Could be a fun time to eat pizza and watch other people do work. ;)

Tomorrow (Wednesday) should be 58* and partly cloudy. I need to fix my clutch lever, but other than that riding seems reasonable. See y'all at a hair before noon!

Hey-forgot to ask my local inmates if any of you plan to go to the Eastern Rendevous?
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...399647&page=20
The deadline for sign up is approaching- anyway just wanted to mention that I have a handful of buds going. Plans are loose but likely there will be a trailer with dual sports along with the street crowd. Send me a PM if any of you are interested.

well got my tech project done. The only issue was one of the forum showed it being done and the guy left the wheel in place. Clymers had the wheel off. What was missed in the write up with the wheel on process was you can't get the caliper off the rotor. So it requires a little more maneuvering to get the old pads out and new pads back in between the pistons and rotor. But it was done. I do think that if you knew what you doing it would only take 15 min.

Upon restart, the abs light flashed a lot longer than usual and I held my breath. It then reset and was fine. With the rear brake linked to the front brakes I don't often use it singlarly. Still in testing it, it did feel a lot better!.

Anders, how did yours turn out?

Mine? My what? My brake pads are fine, probably 4.5-5 mm per side. I did get out the oxy torch when I got home and fire up that puppy. Heated up the shift lever to red hot in just the right spot, eaaaased the lever into place, then let it cool. Done.

My next project is lengthen the kick stand by one inch and add a significantly larger foot.Current area is probably only 2 square inches or less, which is sexy but not very functional offroad. It's like a high-heeled shoe.

That was what I meant. your tech project for the evening.

Now that it has been bent, heated and bent, isn't it more brittle?

I don't think so. Bending/bending/bending/bending induces metal fatigue. Heating allows all those metal crystals to reset in whatever shape they cool in, so there's no fatigue.

Now, various quenching/heating/tempering activities (which I did none of) can further strengthen the steel. I have no idea if my shift lever was originally tempered. If it was, it's now softer where I bent it.

Lunch Wed? Mid 60s, cloudy, perhaps a sprinkle, and some good food and company?

Ok, I'll be there. I eat lunch every day, so tomorrow should be no exception. I can tell the story of my unintentional wheelie...
