Time for some TLC.
Well, after almost 20,000miles without touching the bike other that fitting new suspension and using it on a daily basis it was getting in need of some TLC. The decision to get on top of it came when the oil pressure sensor switch failed and resulted in oil spewing out all over the engine through the pressure switch. So today, I tore it down and fixed it all up.
Service, general maintenance, engine once over and fixed all the broken bits. I've struggled finding the time to do this since my decision to do The Dakar in January so a weekend without racing was a perfect opportunity.
Incidentally, I always write down the valve clearances every time I do them and they had not moved a jot....perfect. This engine amazes me.
Right, back to it. I've got some race bikes to service. Happy the old love is back in action, I even washed it......first time in about a year!
