Primed, painted and bolted up the reinforced subframe.


Cleaned, sanded, ceramic coated and re-installed exhaust pipes.


Finally fixed the wiring around the steering stem.


And cut down the OEM windshield. I'm in the middle of painting it now. Head bobble is gone at speed!

I just cleaned the clutch reducing jet.
I know people have tried all kind of ways to get it out once unscrewed. But I just happened to have the perfect tool for the job: a set of spring loaded craftsman needle pliers.

Time for the 20,000 mile service.





Adjusted valves
Flush and fill coolant
Change oil and filters


While going back together with everything, I noticed the return throttle cable was nearly broken, so I also replaced that.




I also spooned on some new tires.





The only thing left to do is replace the brake fluid and replace the rear pads.




Now, time to plan a fall trip.

I just did that job on my 1190R. After pulling my hair out, I found using some heavy grease on a Q-tip pulled it right out.

Built a rack for a soft bag. Creates a nice long loading platform with the topbox off.

Where'd you get the coating done? I've just started looking at Jet-Hot, is there a local Bay Area shop that does true ceramic coating?

Thx.

Well.....

After having broken off both the OEM and the KTM Twins replacement mirrors on the 990 I've just installed the Double Take set. We'll see if they're any tougher.....

Picked it up in Henderson NV (after being transported back from the Alcan 5000 finish in Anchorage) and rode it home through the WORST traffic possible back to Los Angeles.

Maybe I will clean it and start a service check


in a month or 3..

Pulled the stock tank and prepped the facet on the safari for install on the SE. Not a huge fan of the safari, but I need to free up the left side which currently has my 1.8g aux tank so I can install a CJ designs storage box for an up coming trip and the stock 3.4 won't be enough legs.

Ordered new plastic.

Ordered Crispy Designs decal set, including matching decals for Marathon RR fairing. Can't wait!

Ordered new 606 and terraflex.

I understand there are a few in South San Francisco and at least one in Belmont, but I went with a DIY method (which I know isn't as good as a full interior/exterior coating). It's basically a ceramic header coating in a spray can. You bake the coating onto the headers, either in an oven or by following precise heat cycle instructions.

It's still early days, but the finish seems pretty hard, and the heat by my right leg seems diminished.
