You get your bike out of the cobwebbed corner of the garage yet?

Adjusted throttle bodies today.  To my surprise, they were out of adjustment.  My prior MC was dead on.  Made nearly 1 cw turn to the left side (non-reference side) screw.  It was also a surprise to see that the pressure did change when adding throttle.  My last MC was rock solid regardless of throttle applied.  Kinda concerns me that the valves might be out of spec.  It already has new plugs.

How many miles are you at?

In hospital for another 5 days minimum and supposed to have a chaperone 24/7 the rest of the month (nothing bike-related).  Yes, the weather has turned and I'll be riding ASAP.  No cobwebs because I still hook up the trickle charger and fondle things every so often.

Just bought another race car (Van Diemen RF94 monoshock front), too! Crossle' is for sale.

Got ECU back today and took her out for a spin. Cool mid 50’s day and the hordpower box does make a difference. You can really notice it in the upper rpm’s as she will pull to the limiter. Pretty pleased with the whole package. I really enjoy this bike. Definitely in the top 3 of all that I have owned for its own reason.

I rode it for the first time in one-and-three-quarter years.

Well, that was actually last Sunday.

Still a very fun bike to ride.

Why'd you go and put yourself in the hospital

(Hope you're alright)

Look forward to meeting up with you and some of the other summer hibernators this fall for a ride or two if that's possible

I installed Driven TT  Rearsets. I purchased them second hand from @pgeldz  in a moment of weakness.  😊

They arrived with all the right hardware and in good condition. Thanks Paul! 👍

They fit just fine with the Akra-Ti exhaust but.....

One Note when installing these rearsets with the SW-Motech Centerstand

You'll need to shim out the brake side ~5mm to clear the Centerstand bolts.

IMG_0584_small.thumb.jpg.3565a25bbabd040b8d4b8a7b66fb4134.jpg

 

I used wide flat washers as spacers and replaced the provided 30mm-8x1.25 button head bolts with Stainless 35mm-8x1.25 Button head bolts to maintain thread depth.

I know some of you may be thinking "Why do you need a centertand if you're running rearsets? Aren't you going to go play Ricky Racer since you installed rearsets?" .  I didn't install them to go racing. I installed the rearsets to adjust the footpeg location to a hopefully more ergo (for me) location and to take advantage of the shortened shifter/brake throw.

got the Ktech Razor Lite in today and installed it, adjusted it,  and took it for a ride .... WOW ! ,...  whatta difference !   

much more compliant, softer, but soaks up the bumps better, and still stays planted in the twisties....beginning to fall in love with this bike all over again.....

wound up at 8 free sag, 40 total sag and 20 clicks out on the rebound.....just about right for my fat OL'  rearend....

Replaced a leaking stator cover gasket and changed oil while at it. Also installed some Puig radiator side covers and took some slack out of chain. 
Last week installed Hordpower airbox, Graves exhaust and ECU for the 3rd time. 
Too bad riding season is coming to an abrupt halt around here.

Installed new bars and grip puppies! Went with Driven Meteor aluminum black bars for the low height and aggressive sweep, as well as being narrower than the XSR bars. I felt like a granny with those things.

Ordered a set of Michelin Road 5s to replace the factory Bridgestone BT-023s.  I hope to have them by the end of the week.

While I have the rims off the bike getting the tires spooned and spun, I'll be swapping out the factory 525 chain/sprockets for 43T/16T Driven steel 520 sprockets and D.I.D. 520ZVM-X chain, that I purchased previously.  👍

Almost ready for prime riding season here in Florida. 😎

You can email a pic to yourself and it can be compressed (sorry, you prob know that!). Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
