i put a wet rag on the screen to soften up all bug cadavers.
I decided to change the brake pads, and I found an opportunity to yell at some kids to get off my lawn.
Didn't follow through, pulled the ad and will ride this sweetheart for awhile longer.
Did the rear brakes on 2016 gsa. Here are the two shims on the floating side
My 2018 bike, and a friend's 2017 bike have the same ones.
Installed the WeiserTechnik LED turns I bought at Das Rally.
GS tank decals... no tools needed
I washed the bike yesterday and just use my jet washer to blast any dirt in there and then use the air blower to dry it. Not too bad.
Monday was National Ride to Work Day. My commute is long but lame, it ended up being a 160 mile round trip once I visited my machine shop too. Coffee stop along the way.
Haven't done too much, but I did just cross 10k miles. The old Anakee 3 is finally worn down to the point of needing replacement. I'll probably run another one, just because it did well enough and the front's still going strong.
Next, depending on the reviews, I may go with the Anakee Wild - I don't do enough off-road yet to justify a more aggressive tire, though I may regret that on our honeymoon. We'll see.
Mounted tool box and fabricated a heat shield to keep my soft bags from melting
Changed the oil and valve adjustment. I was surprised to see two exhaust valves were out of spec. Adjusted, all done.
Thought about riding it.
Oh hell, I'm going to go ride the thing!
Adjusted the rocker arm endplay on the 2008, using Ted Porter's guide. www.r1200gs.info/howto/end-play.html
They were in specification but the 2008 valve train was so much h noisier than the 2011. Wow, what a huge difference that made (clatter, not performance). Now I have to do the 2011.
The "in specification" range of .05 to .40 is astoundingly large.
Rode up state hwy 145 from Cortez, Colorado past the quiant little town of Rico. Took FR535 that's just 5 miles north of town. Rode this beautiful FR to w/I 1 mile of Dunton hot springs. Turned on FR161 that leads to Ground Hog lake. Stopped for lunch at Burro Bridge campground. A cool 9500 ft elevation. 64°f.
Ha, Kawasaki's love to park next to us (one of us is compensating)
That is certainly better than I would have done!
There is no endplay adjustment on a Camhead.
