Went turkey hunting. No turkeys but lots of fun riding.
Oil change, coolant flush & change, and then I burped it-
Ingenious... I'm stealing your method when I change my fluids. I'd been wondering how to lift the front end and THAT is how!
Why a coolant flush and change on such a new bike? Just curious, mine's the same vintage and runs warmer than I would like, especially during the summer.
Mine has 325 miles on it, coolant will be flushed at 600 mile change then again at 2k mark.
Mine runs hot, but I have Akrapovik cans on the way to eliminate some of the heat. The fan kicks on at 70 degrees outside, temp stays consistent, but really normal traffic and the fan at 70 outside temp.
My last bike an original 04 950 did the same, ran great with the new exhaust, I'm expecting the same results.
SWEET !!!!! New front spring rate 6.9 N/mm and rear is 179 N/mm, y buddy is gone for the weekend, and I tore it apart in his garage (its the size of my house) so will have to wait til next week to put her back together and do the test ride. Oh and thanks Superplush, great job, great customer service, especially Zoe
Ran a Hardwire powerline for my GPS.
Last coat for tubeless rear wheel. Tomorrow, The tire goes on and I test it out. In the meantime, Darth Kitten lives!
Today i stole EZ300's idea of putting my FZ1 on the headlight mount.
This picture was after i got it setup and was testing with the multi meter to make sure i hooked it up right.
And this one is all finished just missing the cover over it at the moment.
I am pretty happy with it so far. it will make wiring all the crap up super easy.
Your gona like those
Installed a poor man's GPS. An iPhone 4S, MotionX GPS app, a LifeProof case with bar mount, and a new USB port added to switched power. Good to go!
I needed to burp it because I saw the engine temp max out in stopped traffic last summer.
There was also reports of left over casting sand in some bikes, so I figured that I would flush out the system and replace the coolant with "lowtox" coolant- reported to lower temps better than standard coolant.
opened up the clutch cover, checked my hub bolts, un screwed them and re torqued , buttoned it up and went for a ride. (just an anual insepection)
Fresh Redline 20w-50 and Cj's nifty oil drain hose-
1)mark ear using template
2)cut ear off
3)Tighten fittings and route hose. Almost looking forward to the next oil change!
Rode to LA to do some skating with a friend.
These were only finger tight... :eek1
Close call, nice to catch that before major damage. Were you able to reuse the gasket or have a new at the ready.
were you able to get the cover off without removing the breather line?
I have to do the balance shaft seal soon
I reused the gasket, even though I had a new spare. I cut the clamp that holds on the breather hose, and used a low budget clamp to replace it.
You don't need to remove it.
