    + it's nice to have a fresh maintenance starting point with a new to you bike.
    Thanks for the input! I already checked the air filter, was actually a brand new one in there, so they at least checked that, haha! And i did clean and lube up the chain after I tightened it, but not the clutch/tb cables, I'll do that later today. Brake fluid is also on my list, just keep procrastinating because I hate bleeding brakes, haha

    Damn that sucks! It's been 110F during the day here past week or two (live in southern UT), so i try to get out and ride in the morning or evening if I can! I bled out all of my old brown brake fluid today with some nice clear new DOT4

    Rims are in the shop for new tires. Gonna try the Dunlop Q3s everyone is raving about.

    My 5 year old Pirellis were feeling a bit wooden. Still got me stopped when I had a car pull out on me today.

    Re: ~~~ What did you do to your Bike Today Thread??? ~~~

    About 5 weeks ago I noticed that one of the 6 vertical set of LEDS i nmy tail light was out. and then it was ok and over the next few days it would be ok and then I'd try the brakes and that strip of LEDS would die.
    So I finallty ordered a new LED smoked lens tail lamp and it arrived in about 10 days.and we have been so busy of late that it has sat in my tools cupboard for weeks waiting for some nice weather and time to replace it.
    Today was the day. the "Wasp" got a big wash and then I stripped down the rear end, taking off seat, side pods and then the grab rail. I had forgotten how tricky the rear light it to remove and fit the new tail light. Added to that is my adittional hyper-lights. I had also forgotton that they are all integrated in the wiring. Fortunately I still had plenty of shrinkwrap so I could replicate the clean install I did few years back Out came the soldering iron..... Anyway long story short, I am fully roadworthy- lighting wise, now its just the cupping on the front tyre that will get replaced this week.


    Nice to spend time in the sun working on the bike- next warm day will be riding-not just the daily commute

    ride safe folks
    cheers

    Re: ~~~ What did you do to your Bike Today Thread??? ~~~

    So today I got the new PR4 hoop on the front, can instantly feel the difference. And while the bike was with the service crew I go them to change out the front pads. I knew they would need doing soon and they reckoned that they wouldn't have lasted unil the next service which another mechanic had advised me of last time I was there, so they are consistent.

    They did comment that the bike was nice and clean, I reckon it makes doing their job just a little easier not to have to wade through layers of road grime. They appreciated it, specially doing a tyre and brake pads.
    cheers

    I put a PR4 on the back a couple weeks ago, I love it! Gonna run a front PR4 next time it needs changing.
