  17. Had a fantastic day today, everything was fun fun fun plus lots of things learnt :) Only bad thing was I put a tiny scratch on the 675. I was walking the bike down the driveway onto the road and my gimpy arm didn't like holding the bike up and it slipped out of my control. I tried to compensate the failing with pulling the bike to centre it or use me as a brace. Semi luckily I managed to get the bike to fall towards me instead of my bad side and laid the bike gently on me + the road. Just a very small scratch on the stator cover.

    At least I have found the first bit of bling to buy, carbon fibre stator cover hehe

    Something similar to this:

    And a nice video taken at a cool moment with my phone. :grin: Should play in windows media player easily or a player like VLC. :)

  18. Good thing you bought them along hey :p and we wont mention the sphinter tighening when we found out the sump plug had a helicoil improperly fitted and came half out with the plug, hey :p

    One thing we did pick up was sezied chain adjusters, and rather than jump in and break/strip any threads.
    It was wisely decieded to book it in asap to a bike shop and let them fix that problem ( the chain is only 'just' in need of adjustment ) and further tinkering could have made the bike inoperable or unsafe. :?

    All in all a reasonable showing with 3 bikes getting worked on, plus a good example of when you should leave well enough alone and left to the "pro's" that have better tools/access to replacment parts on hand.

    Undii : Chain adjustment
    Emjaye : Oil/filter
    Grunge : Oil/filter (almost chain adjustment) and sump plug trouble :p Brake pads 90% worn on the front !

    PNUT & Rhea ( late but at least they turned up ) :LOL: :LOL: :p

  19. Bob,

    Definitely good thing I bought them along!
    Mental Note: If I can't see how much MM's is left on my brake pads, then it's prolly time to change it! :p

    Again, Bob, thanks so much for your help and you + Nadeen's hospitality!
    Definitely learnt a helluvalot today, and had fun in the process! :]
