What did you do to your bike today?

Recommended Posts

Passed a CBR in corner.  Kind of a dick pass, felt good though.

I’m guessing that would be an ego check

The guy got on the gas heading into a nice "S" curve.  I thought he was going to accelerate through it.  He checked up at the last second.  So I passed on the inside.  Kind of a dick pass, but I had room.

Somewhere a CBR rider is angrily posting about the beemer that passed him on the inside.  Or, more likely he is pretending it never happened and will tell no one.

No an ego check would be what I did to a zx9 or whatever it was on the grom in the metro parks yesterday.

If anyone need service done at Pony or any other dealers now might be the time. Called Pony today about some recall work for my wife's Scout and she said drop it off anytime and they will get it done right away. She said they are slow to dead for customers. You have to call them for appointments they aren't open for walk in and the store is closed but service is operating 10-5. Don't wait till this shit is over with like everyone else and decided then its time to get their spring work done.

Smoked the clutch in the zrx. Slipping like a bitch once it’s wrapped up. Knew I shoulda looked in there when I had the bike tore down. :nono:

Dropped the Injun off for a recall on the starter.

I didn't work on bikes today, but I did begin to organize my tool box. I finished the first two drawers. Only 9 more to go.

Those wheels are a pain on manual machine or to spoon on. Not much of a drop center on them. I've done a couple for a local guy.

Yeah. I used to have all of the tools for BMW and Victory Vision wheels. Sold them all with my NoMar. Shit happens.

Ordered a SH866AA voltage regulator off a newer parted zx14. I suspect it's a series model from the ID that will run a cooler stator. But without the pricing the well known SH847AA pulls.

 

Installed. 13.3v at Idle 14.3v up to 8000rpm. It's inside the nose fairing so I can't check it for heat.

Finished installing the FZ6N conversion kit.  None if the fasteners fit properly, parts were missing, the main stay is poorly constructed and all the tapped and thread holes are off.  It is also nearly impossible to install without cutting the wiring and relocating the connectors and flasher inside the frame (stock FZ6S they are  out front in the fairing).   I'm happy the bike is now naked, and I wanted an OEM look, but in hindsight I probably would source custom parts and use a round headlight bucket.  I may still do that.

Digging the naked look but not sure about that particular headlight either... Is that headlight different than the "euro" one from the FZ1N? I have always liked that headlight on the FZ1. This one looks a little different.

It's a knock-off kit from China, but it is a copy (visually and aesthetically but not in quality) of the European FZ6N.  I think the FZ1N does have an entirely different headlight though.

I got to ride it.  The rain didn't start until I was literally turning onto my street on the way home.  I told the Universe to go Fcuk itself a little less emphatically than usual.

I walked up to her, first apologized for ignoring her these past four weeks, gave her a pat on the saddle, opened both petcocks, pulled the choke out and she fired right up.

Choke back in, and let her warm up to 200deg. Then shut her down. Thursday I am doing a 250km loop with a guy from a local motorcycle group. As part of our loop he'll show us his summer house on the ocean, as he's offering to rent it to us for less than we're paying now. Hopefully it's nice.

It'll sure be nice to get out riding again.
