Rode the rebuilt motor 950 180 miles. Bad oil leak developed. Took apart this AM and have a broken oil return line angle connector into the front valve cover.

Those little suckers get very brittle baking behind the radiator and oil cooler. Got to order a new set.

Other than that it ran great!

Pelicans and hard wired and accesory plug.

Mounted 2 pelican 1550 cases to my H&B Racks using Caribou's DIY kit. Awesome product and install was a snap. They seem rock solid too. I have a supplier for pelicans out here so to save on shipping I went this route. Now I need to order the top box I want and the luggage system will be complete.

Also mounted an accessory plug for the GPS in the Glove box for the new garmin I picked up a nuvi 1450.

God this is addicting.
Chris.

Nice one Gav.....it feels good doesn't it! You rider em harder once they are paid for!!

What did I do today?

Well, fixed the water pump again. 5th pump I've put in it now but this was the first time it had actually gone, the other were just preventative.

Oh yeah, fixed the rear brake on my bike and.......

Replaced a shift drum bearing on my spare 950 motor. Had to strip the entire motor to do this, that damn little bearing had to be the last Russian doll didn't it!

Anyway, progress. Just come in and lit fire to get warm

For Christmas I installed my presents.
Pic from the website.


I also did the pannier rack mod so I can get to my Aux tank filler without cursing loudly.

I love those bags, I just don't have the current riding to warrant them.

But as soon as I do...

Yoink!

Reinforce Subframe

Started the process of reinforcing my 950 Super Enduro subframe this afternoon.







Used 1/8 x 1.5" 6061. Although not shown in the this pic, added an addition patch on the sides before it starts the horse shoe, making that an additional 1/4" thick at each outside section (at the weakest point). Crap load of work. Primed and I need to pick up some GM Rally Wheel paint tomorrow (looks to be a good match). It may not be pretty, but won't be able to see it anyway and it should be bombproof.
