This mornings work:

  • Re-torque steering head bearings - requires handlebar removal
  • Fix broken heated grip wire - most likely broken when doing the above
  • Find 1/2 cut heated grip wire and repair - not from above work
  • Confirm point's aren't "tiger tails" and plan to order some (found a supplier for the ones made in Brazil)
  • Install the breather/snorkel on the points can
  • Note that points can is all the way adjusted to one side - need to check timing
  • Order the top OEM spacer for the slipstream deflector as it is too far leaned back and is not allowing the headlamp shell to fully seat on the speedo
  • Replace the stupid LED's I had put into the front turn signals as one stopped working. Back to the OEM's

Work planned:

  • Change final drive, swinger, brake and trans fluids
  • Replace one last pannier frame bolt (hard to find an M9 x 50mm)
  • Check timing
  • Ride lots of miles in prep for the national rally!
