As I said originally, I don't have the three "T's" for self care....Tools, Time or Talent.
If you need any help, I got a '07 990 too and do all my own work and live up by Seattle.

Yeah, should organize a PacNW 950 tech day (he says this but I'm sure they have been several already). Shims would be tricky though.

I would do it in a heart beat when I get off my lazy ass and buy a house.

I like having an apartment because I can throw it all in storage and go on a big trip when ever I want. Though I have been looking at houses and one requirement is a Huge detached garage. I do have a garage now, its just not huge.

Thanks for the offer Grinns. When I retire in a few years, I intend to spend the first couple years at least living off my motorcycle. If I thought that my 990 was going to be "that" bike I would definitely spend some time getting to know it mechanically.

But for now, time is still more precious to me than my cash.
