Bikes running Great!.... Beautiful night for a ride 25C at 9pm. Cooler night air is good for the engine, it loves it!
1200kms on the engine now, roughly 750 miles. So gonna ride down the coast for a few hours just digging the vibe and the sound of my pipes barking at the night.
Shift ratchet was worn visibly. I'll put up a pic when I get home, don't need to be worn much and it just slips past the shift star.....now it's very positive, better than when I first got the bike a few years back now when it only had 8500 miles on it.
Clutch is holding fine. They staggered three of each of the stronger gold and the weaker green.
It's a man's clutch but upshifts at the right revs only require two fingers and a light pull to grab the next gear.
There's an art to shifting these things and it comes with time and miles.
Running the Penrite semi synthetic diesel oil this time for the next 500 mile and all is well so far.
Booked in for a new 180 55 18 rear Night Dragon tomorrow so I'm out wearing out the old one tonight.
Refitted the 21" front for a comparison,
Also there's Tuff Metal on this Saturday arvo. A custom, muscle, street, race, car, bike and truck show, with a heavy rock band on after, fronted by Angry Anderson of Rose Tattoo fame, will be a top evening I reckon, and I'll enter the hotrod Vegas in the show
Anyway the road is calling me!......
