Default Over the winter bike projects

I've got nothing big planned...really . but I'm curious as to what other people are planning to do with there bikes.
I'm going to need new plugs and I might change to colored wires while I'm at it. I also will be doing a fork oil and tire change in another 5k. I'll be ordering the stuff for these but that's all that is on my list for next season.

Riding all winter since I will be in Florida but plan to do the following:
-Install mount and wiring for Victory branded Zumo GPS
-Install Lloydz ATS
-Install Lloydz, 1/4 turn throttle ring
-Remove wheels and take them to local independent shop to have new tires mounted/balanced (ME888's)
-Adjust belt to proper tension using new tension measuring tool and then adjust tracking of belt (again)
-Install Lloydz air filter
-Install PCV
-Take bike to KevinX's shop near Gainsville for a dynotune

I figure this is plenty of work. I plan to install the Zumo mount on Oct. 3rd which is immediately after I arrive in Florida (Oct. 2nd) so that I can use it on a ride on Oct. 5th. The ATS, 1/4 turn, air filter, and PCV will be done the weekend of Oct. 10-11. The tires will be done sometime the week of Oct. 5-9. The dynotune will have to be scheduled but I hope to do it sometime in the second half of Oct. By the end of Oct, I hope to have everthing done and be ready to roll - "Good lord willin' and the crick don't rise".

G'day,

Vinish

That's just a given..... I'm hoping to get to the end of November.

I have heat wrap for my exhaust, but at this point there is no sense in wrapping it, so this will wait for spring.

And it wont help one iota with the heat . Waste of time and a lot of work for nothing .... IMO , but you will do it anyway and then tell me you should have listened ....
