Just tossing this out here. Rostra installed last month or April. It's the unit above the coolant tank.

If no one has seen their air-filter, it is located under the bare-metal plate just aft of the steering head - retained with two bolts. Filter then slides out the left side.

So I picked up my C14 in Georgia and rode it home with my wife. The trip was a blast and I finally got a chance to snap some pics of the bike. I love the bike, but it's been lowered. I *really* need a stock rear suspension link. The one that's in there is adjustable, but the bikes geometry is already kind of screwed up and I just want to return it to stock.

What is a Rostra?

Congratulations on your new acquisition! Looks like the Corbin pieces will have your wife enjoying the rides.

This is a really nice photo - would make for a good wall poster. I'm curious about the camera and lens that was used to take the pictured. Got a bit of HDR work with it?

Yellow Connie

Anybody notice the beautiful yellow connie leading the Tour De France? The motorcycles and the scenery are the two main reasons I watch the race.

I've seen the white C14's, and will keep an eye out for a yellow one. Having the motorcycles mingle with the riders sort of helps keep the interest in watching.

I have been watching the TDF for past many years mainly for the motorbikes esp the C14s and all the rest of the ST gang. Since the camera travels on the bikes, and with the jaw dropping scenery, its like we are touring the back roads of France on the bike (with the odd interruption of some cyclists in between). This year the Triumph Trophy is also in the mix together with the standard caravan of Bavarians.

Also nice to see the occasional blast of the blue FJRs by France's finest. In the downhill stages today the cyclists were doing speeds close to 100km/hour!

The old C10s are replaced by the C14s, and they seem to be doing a good job.

I have a pretty bad oil leak right now going to pull fairings off this week and see whats going on.The valve covers are prone to leak due to a shoulder bolts I have been told to put a washer under them so they will tighten down more.

I'd order every thing rubber in the area and just plan to replace all once the parts are in. Even check valve clearance once in there.

Hasn't occurred on the C14 yet, but that was my response to the Z last year when it started leaking at 8k miles.

Told by who. Everything I read is they go through all the work replacing the valve cover gasket and find it is the cam chain sensor O-ring,

Mine was leaking at the cam cover gasket, covered under warranty 400 miles from home. No problems since.
