New toy? We were hoping to do this with my daughter's if she'd been able to upgrade over the winter. Not happening...bummer.

checked valve clearances

Well, damn. Today I thought I would replace my cam cover gasket. After opening the cam cover, I checked the valve clearances and discovered that all but one are out of spec.
Intake: .25, .26, .26, .21 Spec = .15-.20
Exhaust .32, .33, .33, .30 Spec = .25-.30
I've not replaced shims before but it looks like I'm in for a bit of a project coming up.

Put a fork in it

New sonics to my front end. Had to wait a week to complete the job due to some non-fitting Bikemaster fork seals. Riding her today.

I thought this too but looking into it some more, it looks like the gap can increase with some engines. Maybe the cam follower wears more than the valve face and valve seat? I'm still trying to understand this all. B06Tang has a video of a Bonnie (same engine practically) with the same issue and goes through the replacement of worn shims. It looks like a colossal pain in the ass as the cam shafts have to be removed before even knowing what shims to order.

Took a 200 mile beach and back home trip. Worked my way into Netarts and Tillamook. Got lots of good gopro footage with new camera angles. It is going to take a while to edit it out.

I missed those twisty roads. I stayed in tillamook so, saturday ride was real cold. Sunday (today) way amazing. Still lots of wet spots, and center lane green groath.

Got pulled over for the second time in three days while on the way to work! 44 in a 30. Yet again, a lot of "sir" and just looking very disappointed in myself resulted in some leniency. This time I received just a warning.

NOTE TO SELF: Speeding on Airport Way is always a bad idea!

(Saying that over and over in my head has been my penance.)

Thank you Officer Lee!!

Rode her to work, and found that the glue holding my heated grip element to the throttle tube had decided to let go about half way through my commute again... which then lead to the whole thing rotating to the point where the wires were taut and I could barely turn the throttle anymore. Easy fix - let off the throttle and rotated it back the other way - but it's rather annoying that it keeps happening while riding.

Any suggestions on a good adhesive for heated grip elements? I simply can't find a way to keep the throttle side from rotating on my Triumph. Never had this issue on my Buell...

I'm not familiar with that technique - small hole in the throttle tube with a bit of wire through it, and run that through the element?

I'm also using elements that go between the throttle tube and the rubber grip.
