Maybe check the bearings?
I put a new tire on this spring and after 37 years the bearings where getting a little stiff.
I do as little as possible and only when necessary.
Installed a new front tire and changed the bearings in the wheel.
Now its raining again. :confused:
Changed the oil on Sunday and must have been distracted as I topped up the last little bit of oil because I forgot to put the oil cap back on.
Near Barrie. Temp should be 22+ and still only 13 degrees by mid day and now its raining. :mad:
Stood beside my bike and shivered again this morning. Only 6 degrees Celsius.
We have only had two days above 10 D,C in the morning this entire...
Not a speed demon. Still alive too.
120 kph is just fine as a maximum speed for me. Usually only hit that when on the highway.
To each their own.
Thats plenty for me :)
I probably only get about half way to 8000 rpm o_O
Thats where it normally sits when the bike isnt running ;)
Are you looking for just the faceplate in kilometers?
If so I now have a spare.

On the topic of penetrating fluids:

Tucked mine away for the winter. :(
I found this to be a very informative article.
I think most of us in Ontario thought we where all gonna die when the temps stayed over 32 d C for most of the summer. lol
Thanks for the suggestion. I was aware of an oil cooler option but I almost never get stuck in traffic.
Where I ride mostly from work to home and...
This summer was a real Hot one in Ontario this year with temps passing 30 degrees C quite often.
Very rarely do I ever have to sit in traffic...
Will these windshields work with the aluminum Maxim handlebars?

The "Atari" gauge cluster really caught my eye. Thought it was a very cool innovation and way ahead of most bikes on the road at that time.
Installed a new AGM battery. Tired of replacing the old led acid batteries every two years.

Forever.......if decently looked after and not abused .
Mine would be in the house with me all snuggly and warm but you know...............wives. :(
Happy new year.
My winter ride. A little to cold at -20 to -30 Degrees celcius for the Maxim..
Well crap.........changed mine just over 20 years ago and I am pretty sure I used 10W30 might have been 5W30.
