  • 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.

                        Refreshed the suspension already at TSE, clean and lube the chain, inspect sprockets. Flush brake fluid maybe, still looks clear. Fresh oil/filter. Paint the race glass, no more murder R6 for me.

                            KLX- I rolled it into the shed. Hopefully not under a birds next this winter like i did last winter.

                            TTR- cleaned the carb with either when it wouldn't start ice riding 2 weekends ago.

                            Would sort of like to sell the KLX and get something different...but i probably won't.

                              Almost done with wrenching for the off-season. This past weekend I replaced the sprockets and chain on the track bike. Not sure if I really needed to, but the last time I did was 5 years ago, so I figured it was good insurance. Sprockets still looked good though.

                              All that really needs to be done is clean the air filter on the FJ-09, and get vinyl for the new GSXR bodywork. Well, and scrape the riding mower deck which, surprisingly, has been a job I've been putting off...
