    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Follow up to my post what the heck I've been doing? I bought a bunch of cheap parts to just see if the bike would ride at first having bought it as a bent bike with out a stator cover so, ... been spifin, just doing what I can afford. first day to work and some one did some cow tipping in the parking garage so had more bodywork and needed another windshield which CAME TODAY! Rode it yesterday without the windshield and was surprised how little the wind felt compared to the double bubble. HMMM? Tomorrow I'll get a chance to test it out.

Is this why they make tank pads? Tomorrow its 2nd start at commuting to work with the bird and it WILL BE LOCKED IN MY SHOP!

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Monday rode it 120 miles in the rain.
    Filled it with fuel.

    Tuesday rode it 120 miles only 80 in the rain.
    Filled it with fuel.

    Wednesday rode it 120 miles only 20 in the rain.
    Filled it with fuel.

    Thursday rode it 120 miles only 60 of those in the rain.
    Filled it with fuel.

    Friday rode it 120 miles IN THE DRY
    Filled it with fuel.
    Washed it (withdrawal from wet bike syndrome).
    Cleaned and lubed the chain.
    Checked tyres.
    Checked oil level.
    Checked coolant level.
    Checked brake and clutch fluid levels.
    Checked all bulbs.
    Checked for anything falling off.

    But the big news of the week is that 'Daily Bird' has developed A FAULT
    Thats right, Honda quality fails yet again.
    As I approach 70K miles the clock has started loosing time, 2 to 3 hours a day

    ................. new one on me, didn't think it possible for these new fangled LCD clocks to loose time, obviously (and not for the first time) I am completely wrong!
    So the big question is shall I spend Saturday checking out the dash leckies

    I'm sure someone here can give a reason for it. I think they use a little piece of quartz that, when applied with a known voltage will vibrate at a known frequency. The electronics use that vibration to count time. I suppose it might be possible that some corrosion has caused the voltage to drop below threshold and the quartz has slowed down, but I'm shooting blind on that.

    yes that would have been my first thought but it is only a couple of months since I went through the loom when I had 'leakage' issues! I've seen clocks resetting themselves (fuse issues) and stopping work completely due to pcb 'issues' .......... but this must add something to the colour thread, 60 miles this morning in under 30 minutes ...........

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Ordered a rubber stopper for the new Yoshi, thanks Tony. A pair or red anodized passenger pegs from E-Bay to keep the theme going:-) My clock is a little out but maybe I'll reset it today. Leakage, I don't like the sound of that. At my age anything to do with leakage is a bad thing.

    ...Looked at the squashed bugs on the fairing. They looked back. No one blinked. Nothing was said between the two parties. I walked away. The bugs exchanged glances.

    Armstrongs, Galfers are beyond my shoes string budget! I have previously used Braking wavey's, (Had em on my R1) they were very good, Only changed them because they failed the MOT (UK) due to an area of corrosion pitting that caused a 'pulse' on the brake tester (not warped)

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Used a gob of the spray foam tire cleaner to spruce the bike up right. Left for work and what have i done on my bike lately??? I almost layed it down pulling away from the second stop!! The rear slid out like my old CR250 in the dirt! I had visions of letting off and flying off the side so kept it even and it pulled back in. I will never use that stuff on the tread again! Someone said they feel like 16 again every time they get on their bike. Well theres a 16 year old move for ya.
