Will be watching this thread as I recently picked up the same bike, albeit a fewer miles on the ODO.
I'm ashamed to say I watched that entire video. Sad that the tires never got off the pavement! But the photos of the following ride were encouraging.
A couple of things I'd recommend--and I intend to do these mods as well:
1. The CJ oil sump drain kit. $75 and it'll make oil changes that much easier.
2. The crash bar bolt mods to enable easier access without fear of stripping the base bolts.
Both mods are covered on ADV.
Let's see what ya got!
I have no interest in living a balanced life. I want a life of adventure.
