  • What are you doing to your bike this winter?

    What do you have planned for your bikes this winter? Anyone taking any trips to warmer weather to ride?

    Street FJ09
    -Possibly an aftermarket exhaust. The triple should sound real nice once opened up.

    Track SV650
    -Valve adjustment
    -Wheel bearings
    -Paint job. At the very least I want a different blue color. Also need to touch up some holes from crashes.


    You should see me in a headsock !

      Yay! Do you have some sort of door down there? Why not the new garage?

          We will have a walk out basement so it will be easy to put stuff down there. Going to be keeping tools in the garage during construction and don't want the bikes in the way.

            Track bike:
            - typical off season stuff: suspension rebuild by TSE, oil & filter, new front brake pads, new brake fluid, clean air filter & airbox, new set of Q3s,
            - new body & paint

            Street bikes:
            - oil & filter
            - new brake fluid
            - clean air filter & airbox
            - may need to think about new tires for the FJ-09

              Which one? Akropovic? That'd be my choice but I'm not looking to do that to mine.

                I'm cheap, so the Delkevic. I had it on my R6 and loved the sound. It's loud, but comes with a baffle. Oh, and I might get the ECU flashed.

                      Change the oil, might as well add one of those magnetic drain plugs too. Maybe swap the coolant to Engine Ice or something, just for the heck of it.
                      After I swapped the brake lines/pads, my brakes don't feel...quite right. I was going to re-flush them and one of the screws on the reservoir stripped so I need to replace that, but I might go ahead and upgrade the MC as well, get something fancy. Then pick up some new tires at some point, just need to decide what. Otherwise just general cleanup. I think.
