I've done that before on other bikes. I'll give it a try since it is worth trying. Parts are on order already, but I'll just save them for later if it holds.

Taking apart and getting parts ready for powder coating(all the silver bits to be made black). I purchased this 2005 950 Adventure and it has to be one of the easiest bikes to work on except for the battery box. Why is it under the bike?

Nice man, I did the same thing. I think the battery box is down there to try and keep the weight low in the bike?

Nice post. I'm wondering how to the the pass pegs out of the bracket. I took a hammer to the post after removing the c clip, but it doesn't want to budge.

Took my little man on a Fathers Day ride! He is 6 and rides his own PW-50, but he still likes to ride around with Dad. Which is great in my book. He is still too small to ride behind me so he sits in front and hands on mine and legs on mine like he has since he was 3.

We live in a rural area and back roads and gravel is mostly what's here. Well we took the Long way to Walgreens to rent a movie. (Read about 30 mi.) once we got us a cold coke we suited up to ride back. He says...."Dad can we go find some more dirt roads, they much more fun"!

Man I love that kid!!

Thanks! I don't think he will. He loves the outdoors. I don't push him. Only take him when he asks and when he says he's tired we go in.

Changed out the water pump with a CJ Designs lifetime guarantee shaft. Noticed I was loosing coolant out of my overflow tank - no big deal right? Filled it a few times. During this year's Roaming Rally started hearing my valves - sounded like I was low on oil so I added a little. 500 miles later low oil pressure light came on at start up so I checked the oil. It was full but frothy. I should have paid closer attention when I was losing water.

One thing led to another and the bike is fully stripped down and will be receiving a full groom to include a 2-into-1 exhaust just because the stock mid pipe setup is a pain in the ass to change graphite seals on.

Not all today, but over the last couple weeks:

crash bar stud mod



fumoto oil drain valve



rottweiler "snap out"



got rid of all this crap



and replaced the one on the right with the one on the left



Also flushed the cooling system, changed the oil, replaced the battery, and most importantly washed it tonight. Now it's time to ride

Yesterday I starting tearing into the my 04 preparing to check the valves and give the bike a good, solid checkover. I have not taken the tanks off at all since I bought the bike a few weeks ago, so now is the time to open it up and look it over for any potential issues, as well as do some upgrades I want to do.

Thinking about installing a Rottweiler intake. Or a CRC. Or an ITG.... I dunno. What's the difference?
