Yea, I rode her Sat. and Tues. but not near as much since I got the Tiger. It's just like new with only 7,500 miles, and you can't find them anymore, so kinda want to save it as long as possible. But what a blast to ride, just pure ass, tire eating horse power.

what do you think started it, just being out of adjustment? How many miles on your now?

Anyone up for a short notice ADV dinner meet tonight? Gorman and I have been trying to get one together that I can bring the Minion to all summer. There's a new wood fired burger joint in Chagrin Falls, or open to suggestions.

Muddy, I replaced the clutch lever and didn't realize that the bracket that holds the OEM hand guards has a boss on them thats raised, when I tightened the lever bolt I pinch this boss down on the lever and it was holding the lever from returning all the way and the clutch arm was not were it was supposed to be, the longer I rode and the more it slipped the hotter and worse it got. After 30 some miles it was slipping pretty good. After an adjustment with the finest OEM tool kit I've every seen (what a joke for what these bikes cost) and letting her cool down, everything seems quite normal now. So a little advise if you remove your levers on the Tiger leave the bolts quite loose they do hsve self locker nuts on the, or they will not fully return because of the guard brackets. After today mine will be gone, replacing with HDB hand guards.
And I've got 3,824 miles on her, and have put about 1,000 on the King.

He may be in an ice cream induced coma.
