The Laundry List

Recommended Posts

r1limited

With the PNW going onto the rain season and winter, its time for the laundry list.  Personaly I make the list and scratch off or add to depending on what I find.  Since the R1 needs some love, time to scope out all the needs for the Yeller Beast as well as the little items planned for the FZ

 

First up R1

  1. Clutch (I will go with OEM)
  2. 40k Valve adjust
  3. Throttle body sync
  4. New  520
  5. Replace Rear Wheel Damper
  6. Annual Brake bleed (Motul RBF 600 Front, OEM Rear
  7. Oil change always AMSIOL 10/40
  8. Forks clean, oil, inspection etc
  9. Basic Winter dissasseble, inspect, lube and torque
  10. Clutch and Throttle cable replacment year.  Regardless of condition
  11. New Q3s
  12. Replace all misc items that show wear.

 

As for the FZ

  1. Airbox project continues (If ready by end of winter will re-dyno)
  2. 520 conversion
  3. Q3s
  4. Suspension
  5. Triple bar mount (Fix damn rubber crap)

 

Most of the love will go to the R1 much needed and required.  What is yours

Don't really have a down season here in AZ.... Unless you live up north

 

I do plan, funds permitting, on getting a set of adapter plates for the rearsets, the hordpower airbox and a re-flash from Nels. Should get/make a manometer and at some point do the valve adjustment. (Waiting for @zombiphone to review the state of hers, and post the vid)

Oh, and setting the sag on the bike would be another goal. I'm pretty close but that was with me soloing it... A helper would be useful

 

Also funds permitting, my GF wants to learn to ride, so probably gonna be getting her an R3, after we send her to riding/track school

@r1limited, what is the airbox project?  Are you doing the Hordpower or something else?

No, design me own.  Something I been working on thinking about.  Stock air box all I can say.

I have two point 5 basic ideas (1) polyurethane (2) billet aluminum.  Either one will require milling to fit.  The point 5 is a tad simpler

Winter??? Oh, yeah! the part of the year that feels like fall here. Right! I may change the oil, top off the brake fluid but most of all I'll be riding my bike to keep it loose.

Did a thorough tune-up on the atv a few weeks ago.  New spark plug, battery, air filter, fresh oil and filter.  Pulled the carb apart and cleaned all the internals.  checked fluid levels in both diffs.  Tires are new, just checked pressure.  Hunting season and a full winter of plowing ahead of it and I don't want any issues that I can't prevent ahead of time.

 

The bikes are easy.  The Vulcan and FZ need some seafoam in the fuel tank and their batteries pulled and they are ready for their winter slumber.

So does the rubber reduce front-end feel? Is that the main reason you wish to get rid of it?

I wonder if they chose rubber just to reduce engine vibration to the hands.

IMO and my personal preference, I would rather have the bar mounts solid.  I believe the rubber is way to soft and gives a false feel.  So yes for me it is feel,

Still have a bit of riding season left here in Western NY (just got back from a ride and it's 80 degrees!), as I usually put them up around Thanksgiving.  Both bikes (the FZ and the Stryker) will get the following:

 

1. Oil change

2. Bath

3. Stabil in the tank after top off

4. Elevated via lift (Stryker) or stands (FZ)

 

The FZ will also have it's chain stripped/ cleaned and re-lubed - the Stryker is belt drive (love it!) so no issues there.  I may lube the control cables on both too.

 

I recently installed new fork springs, oil, and preload caps along with a "new" rear shock and new tires on the FZ, so I still need spark plugs, an air filter, and brake fluid sometime before next spring.  May also grab an aftermarket exhaust and a flash to match, although I have an EJK currently - really dislike the fuel cutoff with throttle reduction.

I think you also need to check your valves and type up a diy tech tip 😉

1. Fit buell 1125r fairing to fz. Wind-blast on straights is wearing me out.
2. Do something about those fake air intakes! Follow-up with:

2A. Clip-ons

3. 520 conversion.
4. AP link or similar.
5. Rear sets or plates or something.
6. Stainless brake lines.
7. Fluids flushed/changed.
8. ????
9. Profit!
