What Fuel containers are Those saddle bags?
Where did you get them?
Man and machine.... I listened to an interview of a scientist who just finished submitting his research. He was able to show when we use a tool, a machine,...long enough, our brain creates new circuits for that particularal tool and make it as if it was an extension of our body like an arm!
Let it go, it is nothing more than nuts and bolts and rubber. Its your creation. You are not losing that ability and can never sell it. Just dont lose it.
Did a bunch of stuff
KTM Twins and Weld 86 sent me a little care package.
Plus: An oil change, inspect clutch basket bolts, clutch oil jet, adjust IAJ's to 1.5 turns. And a all fairings off cleaning.
That was a busy 5 hours....
Time to ride!
Came back home to CA.
You better add some more support under the bash plate so that the bike is more upright. In the current position, there is a chance that the forward weight will lead to the bike come off the mainstand.
The bike wont fall down but all the weight will come to rest on the bash plate and one person can't put it back on the stand again. DAMHIK.
I fixed a broken turn signal tonight. Stopped working last friday and I finally got good enough weather to dig in. (I don't like doing electrical work in 50 mph winds and rain) Turns out one of the wires broke right at the plastic quick connector behind one of the upper fairings.
Cut off the bad end of the loose wire and cleaned it up. Pushed the pin out of the plastic quick connector plug and opened up the little flaps and then soldered the wire to the pin and folded the flaps over the top of the solder and pushed it all together. Nice and tight now.
Mr. Tax man said i was very good last year so I ordered my Safari Tanks from CJ and dualsportwarehouse.com...........BLACK!
She's almost done!
What didn't I do ?
Changed oil, new Cycra Handguards, euro headlight switch, CJ side stand relocator, CJ drain hose , new sprocket, Scott's triple clamp + stabilizer and a bath after a 400 km off road adventure day the day before.
In the effort of farkling I'm headed out for some more thrashing today then I might tackle my HID headlight instal.
Flushed my Clutch fluid... Replaced the Mineral oil with ATF
yuck, how many miles on that sludge? bete.
Well I lost the race do to a malfunctioning Skid plate, however I did not lose the Sunday night shenanigans. Monday morning was a bitch:eek1
Changed out that damned o-ring behind the gear position indicator.
A little over 32,000 miles ...
Mine looked the same. I did 8k km since i bought the bike. This sludge can't be made in 8k km, let alone 15k km. So i guess the prev owner never changed the fluid....
Went from 210mm to 265mm Love the way it transformed the bike, it's a lot better than before:)
now you just need a front tire.
Yep, it's kinda wasted:)
Here are a couple of things I whipped up on my new (to me) lathe/milling machine, Emco Maximat V10P, 70's vintage Austrian machine. Hmm, Austrian machine .... I'm starting to see a pattern here ......
Also used Corbin seat installed and new Jesse bags & mounts.
Stuck some .66Kg fork springs in and trying to fit a 16.2Kg rear spring. It sure would be nice if you could just back off the preload and remove the spring without a spring compressor, but I don't see any other way.
