Installed a new bushing in the lower left tank mounting hole. Had to use a damn bottle jack to re-align the tank. Noticed my standard-beam headlight filament is burned out. Guess I'll have to use the high-beam.

Heading over to Fraser for a family reunion tonight and tomorrow.

Funny you should mention that....I think everyone knows that the hardest part of an oil change is re-installing the crash bars/lower tank bolt. I've used a jack in the past but it usually just lifted the front front wheel off the ground and I had to fight the alignment of that lower bolt....this time I removed all the upper fairing bolts and loosened the upper tank bolt(by the fuse block)...that with the jack 'lift' made it alot easier...I mean I saved 20+ minutes of cursing, sweating and frustration...that just me, YMMV....

There has GOT to be a great story to go with that post.

How the F did you do that???
Not really that great of a story. I remembered how I couldn't budge the oil jet the first time, and used a screwdriver bit and a wrench to remove it. I did the same thing this time, only I also used the screwdriver bit and wrench to tighten it... too much. Dumbest thing I've done for a quite a while.

I tried a few different ways to extract the screw with no success, so here is what the bike looks like right now:

I'm going to bring the lump to my buddy tomorrow. He is far better at dealing with extracting a broken, bunged up screw that is recessed in a hole next to the side of a cylinder without screwing up the engine case than I am.

and then used the SE to lead my girlfriend's 13 yr old around the neighborhood on a kx100 so she could practice shifting! Breaking in a new rider.. oh yea...!

This week I ended up going to a shop (AMR, Boca Raton, FL) for some service that required tools I don't have.
After mounting a new tire 180 degrees from the proper position (red dot nearest to valve stem), I needed a balance, badly. I also took the opportunity to have the carbs syncronized after installing Head2Wind's jets last week. Last, I had a new DID 525VM2 chain installed.

Today, after buying fasteners for two touratech bottle mounts, I stopped in Craig's Custom Canvas in Deerfield Beach, FL, looking to have new hinge covers made to replace the ones disintegrating from my H&B Gobi hard cases. Craig stopped what he was doing as soon as I walked in. After discussing materials, he built me two custom hinge covers. We decided on materials and I watched as he sewed with an attention to detail that only comes with years of experience. I was very satisfied with the work. He even gave them as a gift after discussing my upcoming motorcycle trip South.

If you looked in the background of the previous photo, you could probably guess what was coming next.
