Rainy day Maintenance

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' started by Arob0010, Jul 2, 2015.

  1. so woke to miserable weather this morning
    destroyed any plans of going for a ride instead
    decided that the day would be better spent working on the bike instead
    nothing major just an oil and filter change and spark plugs
    i have to say working on the bike is so much easier than working on the hilux

    in the end a day well spent

  2. If you like, add a 12V cigarette power outlet (USB & Cigarette Inputs), small USB cable & a waterproof phone holder case on your handlebars. That way you'll have a guide that never runs out of juice.
  3. thats a great idea cheers now ill just have to get a gps for the bike
  4. Never shy away from a wet ride. There have been a few times I woke up to suspect weather. Still went out and took it as a lesson to ride in the wet in the twisties. Obviously I dont go as hard but still an enjoyable ride. I would definitely stay inside on heavy downpour though.

  5. Went for my first wet weather ride through the twistys last weekend, ended up enjoying it a lot despite helmet fogging up and non waterproof pants. Have to say after riding through the mountains in rain and dry road feels like a doddle. Also nice bike! I love how easy they are to work on.
