    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.

    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!

    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. :wink:

    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.

    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....

    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.

    Installed the AKO Racing LED rear tail light with integrated signals.

    I chose to wire them in along with the existing signals rather than eliminate them. As a matter of fact when I ordered it from KTM Twins I didn't know it had the signals integrated but I wanted a brighter light with less draw.

    Not exactly plug n play but its tail lights and signals so its not really rocket science.

    Here's a few pics of it in the garage.

    Throws great light , works with hazards as well and still increases brightness when the brake is applied with the signals on.
