With that sort of fuel economy you need the big tank.

It was running in the 16's last ride. So running in the range 40-50mpg imperial. Not out of wack with the norm for Airheads. I'll get the valves done & see where we are at. Needs time on the dyno to finally sort the jetting, though its running okay at present. Might have a different exhaust can to put on.

I found the copy of the bearings invoice from the Front store. They were very helpful & if you wish to buy from them allow a couple of weeks I think to find the tricky bearing



BTW having a big tank & not filling it up is the BMW equivalent of stuffing socks down your crotch.

What tyre are you riding on the back at the mo Nutso? My E07 is looking pretty good for the next ten years but looking for something after that.

Tyres & Maintenance

Tyres:
Changed the T63 (which I bought v.cheap on special). The T63 has given me 4,554 kms of wear, but is now completely stuffed. I've replaced it with one of Igormortis's 1/2 worn E09s. I like the E09's, but the price last time I looked had taken a leap up. Get about 6.5k kms from them.

Maintenance:
218,398 kms. Also did an oil & filter change. Left the gearbox & final drive oils - those were changes about 3k kms ago. Also checked the valves. No adjustment necessary.

yeah I'm so sold on the E07s I am loathe to change. BUT I don't want to hijack this to a tyre tread. You think the CTC will be erasonably roadie & mot gravelly? I have no idea what to expect but prob similar to DB stuff?

I went for a ride last weekend & it felt so cool getting back onto gravel I want to go & practise some skills training.

I'm assuming you've been following the jetting thread. i read thru Robs thread & learnt a great deal. Do you have a AFR meter you use or just trial & error, or have you bothered? Were you talking about a harmoniser a while ago or was it someone else? Voltys magic box I take it just does ignition tuning? Schmidt is running very nicely apart from just off idle so may take the time to try to sort that out.

I will probably put an E07 on for the summer. I haven't tried them yet. I have kept to the off-roady end of the spectrum because I like to retain that capacity.

Gravel is a funny thing, because conditions vary so much. The last couple of rides have taken a while for me to get dialled in. That's partially because of (impaired confidence from) the period not riding, & also because the MT21 front has lost its edges. But when I've done more technical riding it can be a breeze..

I'm expecting the CtC to be mostly gravel.

Didn't get the AF sensor & gauge, though I still may still do so at some stage. My issues were resolved with trial & error. Basically draw up a spreadsheet & make one change at a time. Jot down the results. Rinse & repeat. Mileage is still not that great, so some more work is required when I can be bothered.

No, wasn't me with the Harmoniser. I've got Morgan mercury gauges from the early 90's.

Volty's box is a complete replacement ignition with a laptop interface

Padmei - if I can remember where I stashed the harmonizer, I'll send it down. It's not much good sitting in a box.
I wish I had that half-worn E09 now, rather than the overpriced, too narrow Shinko I just put on.
Also, I think I found Kyrgyzstan's Cnut Hill.

Not even close! But I have a little parts cache in Cambridge, NZ. Johnsonville too, come to think of it...

Otaki Forks & Waikawa Beach

The plan was a ride across to White Rock in the Wairarapa. But I went with majority rules when Eben, Daniel & Chris decided they wanted a ride on the beach. That took me to Otaki Forks. It was a much more relaxed day than I’d originally planned, but in the end, that turned out to be a good thing.

Started the day with a cruise via Paekakariki Hill Rd. Been a while since I’ve gone through there. Spotted where my brother wrote his bike off against a strainer post about 20 years ago.

Coffee at Paekak waiting for the boys

Rolled up to Otaki Forks. Hadn’t been there before. Must go again with Mandy & Katherine, & do some of the walks through there.







Eben bailed at Otaki

We had a short ride along Waikawa beach (also hadn’t been there). It was about then that we found out about the earthquakes, & decided to leg it back to town.



These guys all look pretty responsible don't you think? Daniel, Chris, & Eben..
