What did you do to your bike today?

Recommended Posts

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

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.

Flushed coolant and replaced with Engine Ice.

And replaced the exhaust

I broke off a couple bolts on the stock muffler when cleaning the spark arrestor so I used that excuse to replace the system with an FMF Q4 full exhaust. It is definitely lighter and looks better. Will give it a ride today to see how it sounds and if I can notice a power difference.

I cleaned it. Would be riding this weekend but going to Pocono for Indy cars and the person I'm going with just had shoulder surgery and he can't ride.

Got it back from Motohio today. Brembo recall, firmware/software upgrade, and turned off that motherfucking service light. Tonight I put on the new GPS mount. @cmh_sprint, I’m ready. Where are we going and when?

Dude, you really put in the miles on that thing.  How many since you bought it?

Took a picture of it today since the sun was finally shining.

Wednesday I put the new Galespeed wheels on with new Michelin Power RS tires.  They look great but I haven't ridden on them enough to be able to give a ride report.  Leaving in the morning for Murphy, NC so I'll have lots of opportunities to try them out.

Front wheel weighs 8.8 lbs

Rear wheel weighs 12.0 lbs

Cush adapter weighs 1.2 lbs vs 4.5 lbs for the cush parts from the stock wheel.

I haven't had time to dismount the old tires to get wheel weights for comparison.

Thanks, howabusa.  You won't find another like it!  I've had it since new, never let any shop touch it, and I've never stopped modifying it.

Justin and I, well  mostly Justin, got the FJR about 80% reassembled Saturday night. Flushed the coolant while the fairings were off. Should be back all the way together this week.
