What did you do to your V11 today?


Recommended Posts

No worries docc :-)

 

The GEIs will go in and the OMRONs will serve as the backups.  The one TYCO is trash and the other will go in the toolbox for "troubleshooting" duties.

Celebrated twenty years with the Sport today.   

Fitted the new carbon rear hugger and at the wifes suggestion went for a ride on a nice sunny day. Ciao

Lay down the tools, back away from the machine, and nobody gets hurt..:o:D

That sucker is super easy to cross thread. It's perpendicular to the block, but there's an optical illusion of sorts when eyeballing the sump. This very thing is what caused me to buy a metric thread file 20 some years ago.. 

Yes, very easy to cross thread.   After several tries I just took off the pan. No way I was gonna bugger that thing.  I didn't know there are metric files(?).

The only time I was able to get it right was when the filter came loose and I lost oil pressure. For some reason it went right back on.   Of course I still had to take the pan off since the Bosch filter didn't fit through the manhole.   :o

Easy way to screw on cover is to turn it the wrong way until you hear the click as you get to the end of the threads on both cover and sump then turn correct way

Fitted new SBS front brake pads. One pad had nearly worn to the metal.

Changed brake fluid at same time.

Brakes feel good so far but still running in (200ks)

Off to Dunedin this weekend (800ks return) so will know if I like them or not by end of trip

Nice. I also like your shortened rear fender. A nicely sorted bike!

and most of us are jealous of more than just the bike... Phil's reaping the benefits of residing in a great part of the southern Hemisphere in February:

Melbourne, sunny and 91 tomorrow, and saturday around 70 and sunny.  My house for thursday shows high of 34 in snow, low of 23. Then cold rain next week.

Don’t complain. The last four weeks have been really cold up here. The temperature has been constant between -14 and -25 Celsius. The floor heating in the Guzzi temple is switched off.

Spinning vinyl and wait for warmer days.

I spent a few years in the South Pacific, if you can put up with the Typhoons, insects and the general malaise that comes with island living then yea...it’s great.

In my opinion, living in Michigan with the four seasons makes time feel like it goes a little slower vs sunny/sunny-rainy year round.

Here is a vintage picture of me earning a little side cash as “That guy on the boat”

you know..”Hey grab that .... and bring it over here” type... good times.
