    What have you done to your bird lately?

    I've seen these threads on other sites and have decided to blatantly rip them off.

    I will start:

    Tore the rear shock out to take to my local suspension guru to use as a baseline in the rebuild of my 'blade shock. Pulled all the plastics to find a spot for the shock reservoir, change the R/R to a mosfet unit, and do a bunch of stuff up front. Changed the upper fairing stay as the old one had a slight tweak (anyone who wants the old one can have it for shipping $), fabbed up a bracket and installed my Stebel Nautilus (thanks Twisted Throttle for the on-line install guide, it saved me a bunch of noodling to find an appropriate mounting point), tidied up the gaggle of wiring, relays and circuit breakers I have stuffed behind the gauge cluster, and (finally) installed my indiglo XX tach face. Forks are coming off and new springs and gold valves will go in when they arrive.

    Thoughts:

    The stock horn is anemic and pointless. My twin Fiamms were LOUD. The Nautilus is GAWDAWFUL LOUD. I love it.

    The tach face overlay required a wire be run out the back of the cluster which was made easier by releasing the actuator motor from the PCB. I did this without paying close attention to the motor's orientation and had a 50/50
    chance of putting it back in the right way. Reassembled and test fired. Tach now runs backwards. Aargh. Man card revoked. IQ downgraded to "sometimes remembers to breathe without reminding and doesn't drool on self. Much".

    So what have YOU done to your bird lately?

    Love you too man!

    Ok to get back in the spirit of the thread, today I took a long hard look at the bird and decided to give it a wash.
    Then I got a call and had to pop out and ended up just taking the bike out of the garage, to proceed to put it back in the garage..
    Maybe tomorrow then!
    Will work for parts.

    I rode her 600kms and put her away wet. But my conscious bothered me so I washed and spray waxed her. I then decided it might be a good idea to ride my other bird:-)

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

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

    Thursday rode it 146 miles only 60 of those in the rain.
    Filled it with fuel.

    Friday rode it 120 miles only 30 of those in the rain.
    Filled it with fuel.
    Washed it.

    Saturday
    Cleaned and lubed the chain.
    Checked tyres.
    Checked oil level.
    Checked coolant level.
    Checked brake and clutch fluid levels.
    Checked pad wear all round.
    Checked all bulbs.
    Checked for anything falling off.
    Polished the silencers.
    Polished the tank.
    Polished the nose cone.
    Polished the screen and dash.

    Now following vigerous rubbing of the crystal ball I predict very similar for next week with the addition of Monday rode it 120 miles in the rain. Filled it with fuel.

    Great weather for Ducks

    officially I live in a drought warning area, one step away from being banned from washing the bike! I must just have my own personal rain cloud that follows me everywhere
