Boys

Good picture quality can be had quite cheaply, and in a compact size perfect for bikes. Panasonic LX5 same as the Leica De Lux 5. You get excellent optics, full manual control, and the ability to shoot video in 720p

With the Leica you pay more, but get Adobe Lightroom software which brings it equal...

Wow........... Thanks........ That's a nice tool you have

These pictures are reduced for photobucket. I use Photoshop CS5.1 for a width of 1000 pixels

These cameras are so cheep for what they give.......... Body is about the size of a 20s cigarette pack Stick a box of matches in front ...... that's the size. Perfect for bike travel. I carry mine while racing Vinduro in my BumBag Its very intimidating to stop and take photos of the competition.

I took my front forks to SuperPlush to have them install new spring and revalve.

Noticeable improvement in the front end handling.

Thanks SPS.

Replaced front worn tire.

Is this ground covered in snow now, like in your other photo?

Took it for a ride... -17 Celsius (2 Fahrenheit) feels pretty cold after a while but with this weather it was definitely worth it...

What did I miss?

Ok, I changed tires on my 08 990 last weekend and placed leads on the battery for a tender this weekend. When I actually rode it this weekend below 30 mph I get a repeating "rub" sound. When I place it up on the center stand and rotate the wheels I dont' hear or feel the noise I heard when slowly pulling through the parking lot.

Any thoughts? Something I missed pulling or reinstalling wheels. Any thoughts or sharing from previous experiences are appreciated.

Thanks Kris

Kris,
More info would be helpful. You didn't mention which end of the bike the rub sound is coming from. Does the rub go away when you touch the brakes? Did you hear the rub prior to changing the tires?

Some ideas:

For the rear - make sure the axle blocks are firmly up against the adjusters. Did you adjust the chain as well? If so - make sure the rear axle is square to the swingarm (front pivot bolt). Might result in dragging a rear brake disk.

For the front: Did you leave one set of the fork pinch bolts loose and bounce the front end a few times before tightening everything else? Might result in dragging a front brake disk.
Are you sure the front axle nut is properly torqued? Is the axle spacer loose or spinning? I had an instance where I had the axle spacer loose (installed the wrong one) and it made a "squeaking" sound at low speed - and started to tear up the shoulder on the left front fork - not good.

I believe it is coming from the front. Wasn't sure I wanted to put that in my orginal post as I am not sure. I think I will try loosening everthing up front redo the compressions with front brake and then re torque everything back up as first try. I will double check the spacer also. Thanks for the info.

From the 07 owners manual -
Mount the collar screw
[1] and tighten slightly. Tighten the clamp screws [2] on the right
fork leg axle passage (in the direction of travel) tighten to prevent the axle passage from
turning and tighten the collar nut to 60 Nm.
Loosen the clamp screws on the right fork leg axle passage, take the motorcycle off the stand,
actuate the front wheel brake and vigorously compress the fork several times to align the
fork legs.

Now you can tighten the clamp screws on both fork leg axle passages to 15 Nm.

ACC 1 and ACC2

Today I tore the bike apart to locate the ACC 1 and ACC 2 plugs that are tucked up under the dash. ACC 1 is switched and plugged into the power outlet. ACC 2 was tucked up among the other wires toward the left side (from the seat). I disconnected ACC 1 and split the hot and ground four times, the first to reconnect to the power outlet, the second to connect to a Gerbings heated gear controller, the third to connect heated grips and the fourth as a spare. ACC 2 is unswitched, and I split it twice, first for my GPS and the second as a spare.

Does anyone know whether I will have enough juice in ACC 1 for the various items I intend to connect. Both the Gerbings controller and the Oxford Heated Grips have in-line 10 amp fuses.

Thanks for the help.

David
