Yes and Thank You!!!
Tidied up the garage a bit. Set up my new California Air Tools 4620 compressor, washed the DR650 (can’t stand working on a dirty bike). Took stock of tools carried on bike.
Tomorrow, for the first time ever, I tackle changing both F&R tires with Dunlop D606s.
Just chilling and insulating
Yep, I bought the pro workshop package (fittings for 350+ bikes) since I have a bunch of bikes.
A great service stand setup, the package was less expensive than a set of Pit Bull stands with a headlift arm (although I have a bunch of Pit Bull stand sets).
A new steering wheel to turn a non-Cruise Cruze in to Cruise Cruze, and some touch-up body work to prevent rust until there is time to do it right.
Buddys lower control arm bushing in a middle aged van... Then backed the truck in for front fender replacement and more rust fixing. 97 F 350 in WI.
2 weekends away will see some Triumph side car work on 2 bikes with a buddy.
Removed the leaking hydraulic oil cooler from the skid loader. A much easier job than the lift cylinder a few weeks ago. New cooler $500. Checking for used.
Oil change, coolant top off, adjust brake/mirror perch, chain tension,clean and lube on the bike.
^ Can a radiator shop repair it?
I don't think it'd be worth it. I believe it's steel and the tubes are very rusty.
I cleaned up the chain and sprocket on the Tiger 800 while I was blowing the lawn sprinkler lines out for winter. Also cleaned and organized a shelf or two of my fluids/chemical cupboard and threw out a few things that have collected over the years.
Chain clean and tension on the S1000R and then a full detail and coat of ACF50 ready for the salty roads.
Well, it wasn't "Check the transmission lines on the 55 Chevy".
That's for sure.
Waiting for the tow truck now.
Putting some heavy duty cabinets together with my box. I'm not finished but it not looking bad?
Worth probably more than my 401k at this point.
Had a metal radiator on a tractor built during the war, so it was made from metal and very rusty, my radiator shop was able it fix it...………...but also said don't bring it here again.
How are the original style caps held onto rallies? Rallies don't have the external bumps...….afaik.
They look real good that way though!
Outside the garage, finished rebuilding the retaining wall between my back yard and driveway. All new to me railroad ties in place. Need a little backfilling and decorative gravel, then it's done.
I found them in a catalog. They are made for the rallye wheels.
And, thank you.
It stayed where it was set because I had tightened down the triple tree to final torque before removing it.
I have less than $1000 in it. Not counting my time which is cheap.lol
