    What did you do to your bike today?

    I think around 21000. It’s got 45500 miles total.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Pulled fuel pump, cleaned it and the filter. The pump was starting to make a squealing noise like it did last year when the bike started hesitating and losing power at high rpms. It never was hesitating yesterday but I noticed some similar behaviors that were occurring last year. Last year I replaced it with a new used EBay pump. I decided to try to clean this one instead of replacing it. It seemed to do the trick. No funky squealing pig in the tank and the bike ripped through the gears on a short test ride before the sprinkles came tonight. I also fixed my front turn signal.

    Took 1 last big ride before it’s back to teaching. Put down 579 miles today in about 11hrs. Reality starts Monday.

    Lawyer recommendations Cleveland area

    Jim I don’t want to derail your thread so I’ll just say I’m really glad you’re doing well.
  9. That’s good news if they’re going go all the way through it including the transmission. That’s the right way to do it. I’d hate to be the guy doing it. Sounds like you have a quality dealer you’re working with.
  10. That should take you back to stock on the cylinder. Head???
  11. As far as cylinder goes, my guess is it is nikasil coated. They would have to send it out to be coated. I would assume that is being done as well with piston and valves. For my quad I had a buddy who works at Wiseco he had it sent out for me. I’m not even sure where he sent it.
  12. I’d think they would obviously be putting in new valves, piston and rings. The things I would be concerned about on top of that are the rod and valve guides. Looks like there was some major contact with the piston and valves there. I’d be asking about all the shrapnel that went through your motor as well. My advice is just based off of damage I’ve done to single cylinder quad motors, so others may have better advice. Sorry to hear they’re changing things up on you. I hope they get the bike back to you before the end of the season and it’s as good as new when you get it.

    U P has a new bike

    Having a bike for close to 9 years and putting 21,000 miles on it, then selling it for just $500 less than you paid for it is impressive.

    Saturday 8-4 ride

    See you 2 in the morning. My hopes are for us to be rolling down 83 no later than 10:30. I will check in the morning to see if anybody else is joining. I will be on the road at 7AM making my way to New Concord.
