What Really Dumb Thing Have You Done In The Garage?
For the edification of every one on this forum, what really dumb thing have you done in the garage....Head slapper moments....What was I thinking...Or not...
I'm just back from the garage after changing my fork oil. I've a '91 GS with the 41mm Marrozochis. I set the bike fork oils up last weekend, went for a ride, & decided that the compression side was a little harsh. I decided to drop the new 15w oil & go for a mix of 10w & 15w to get a plusher ride.
Successfully dropped the new oil out
The Spectro oil comes in a rasberry jam colour 15w, & a blue 10w. Together they make a nice bluecurrant colour. Mixed them, & carefully fed the mix into the fork tubes. So good so far.
And after I finished that I dropped the bike off the centrestand.
Unfortunately I didn't put the oil filler cap on before doing this. Bluecurrant juice shot out of the fork tubes & hit the garage ceiling, then dripped back onto me & the bike. A little fork oil goes a long way.
No photos at eleven.
