It's a long story, probably buried somewhere on this forum now but the short version is the old site got bought out and got overrun by ads and other things for profit.

I noticed the rampant ads when I checked in there the other day. glad to see this site is ad free.

tore this thing apart last night and found about what I expected for 12 years and 12,000 miles.

Spark plugs worn, been replaced once but due for another set, air filter was nasty, intake valves covered in carbon gunk - indicative of having only been ridden 3 times in the last 3 years. gonna soak em in some special cleaner to hopefully get rid of most of the gunk.

brakes are weak, common issue on these. Got some Vesrah RJL pads, braided lines and RBF-600 brake fluid on order. Should make a big difference. I might upgrade calipers down the road but im going the budget friendly route for now.

turn signal and brake lenses were starting to yellow from age and debris. ordered some brand new smoked lenses to install and really clean up the looks.

what used to be red bolts for the windscreen have faded to a nice salmon pink lol! Black stainless steel bolts on order...

stompgrip is faded and yellow. Its too aggressive anyways. Got some techspec tank grips.

I need to sort out the wiring for the accessories not sure which is for the heated grips (which I want to keep) and which is for the heated vest plug-in or if it is for a trickle charger...

fresh motul 300v on order

working on scheduling fork seal replacement (dont wanna buy the tools to DIY)

up next will be coolant hose replacement once I recover from the first round of reconditioning costs... Man this stuff adds up quick!

Probably due for a battery too,i have a seal driver you can borrow
If you want to do the fork seals yourself and save some money. If ita a plug for a tricke charger it is Just 2 leads right off The battery.
