  • I worked on my bike chasing electric gremlins until 1230am. It SUCKED! And I'm still not finished.

    Turns out my kill switch and starter button both died on me in Madison a week ago leaving me stranded on my way to work.

    Since the kill switch tab was broken anyway I removed it and spliced the wires together. As for the starter button I have two bare wires hanging off of my bar until I get a switch that fits. There is an amazingly colorful array of zip-ties behind the bodywork on the deer spear.

    40k miles to retirement!

        • I dropped the engine out of the 250 ninja and put it on a bench next to the parts engine. Hoping to mix and match whatever parts went wrong in the transmission and get one running hopefully for just the cost of a gasket set.

          • Unburied my trailer, flushed out the old wheel bearing grease with fresh stuff. Going to unload it later and maybe do a squid rum on the bike down the street, maybe.

            • Carried it to my trailer location with my new hitch carrier. Works great! Super stable. There is a brace you tighten up against the hitch so it doesn't wobble around.

              • I checked a check engine code in the Buell, which says the front fuel injector is going bad. That explains the misfiring.

                I put the clutch back in in the dirt bike, after discovering it was a siezed/stiff cable that is causing the clutch slipping.

                • Swapped my rear shock for one from a Ninja 650. Bit stiffer and raises the back end. It's basically just a bigger version of what was in there, so no adjustability beyond preload but does feel a bit more stable with my fat ass on it. Also removed my shorty adjustable lever and put the stock ones back on. The cheapo adjustables just felt...spongy.
