Took the battery tender off, started right up. Changed the oil and rear diff fluid. Oh, and my rear tire was flat. Got a new one ready anyway. I’ll wait till the tank empties a bit and then do the air filter.
I might dynamat the gravel guard later as well, though it’s not really an issue as I ride it.

Good to know. Ive not had the tank up, previous owner had just done plug and filter before I bought it.
You only need to pull up the vent hoses to tilt up the tank. I used to use a tie down to hold teh tank up; I would hook it to the rear rack and teh front lip of the tank.

Yoyo...my drive shaft was the same. I'm in the uk too.
My frame is much more rusty than yours too.
I always thought I did a decent job of cleaning and applying ACF50 to my bikes but clearly not! The frame and engine were painted when the bike was 6 months old as it flaked off (no sign of corrosion) so I'm not surprised to see some corrosion on there now. I'd considered trying a GSA to replace the S10 but I dread to think what a BMW would look like after 4yrs so I think the S10 will stay and I'll spend some time on deeping cleaning and painting it, besides, I always get a big grin on my face when I ride and that's all the matters!

Well that's it. The UK is harder on bikes than any other country as it seems the most posts I have read on corrosion from multiple mc forums seem to come from the UK. ;)

I put the beast on the road after a winter's nap. It started like I had ridden it the previous day! Before I put it to bed in November, I filled the tank with Chevron 94, (no ethanol), and put in some fuel stabilizer. Once a month or so I would throw the battery on the trickle charger. With this plague thing going on, here in Victoria, BC. one has to insure vehicles over the phone. That requires a phone, computer, and printer, which I know most people have, but not everybody has. Once that is done, you have to wait for them to send you the new decals for your plate, but you can still ride. I made my own temporary sticker up so I won't get hassled by the local 5-0 (hopefully), and well meaning citizens.

Glad to see another Pearl White '13!
Quick question, what brand is that lower fork guard?

Fitted these arrow headers to go with the oem muffler. Can’t finish the job due to waiting for a new gasket for the muffler joint. Investigated the recent weird throttle response and found that the heated grip had come unstuck and was twisting round without the throttle!!

Did it add much to your insurance for the headers?

Nothing at all. They aren’t interested unless they provide big gains in power, which they don’t. Had the same with my ZX14R. Put a full brocks system on it but insurance weren’t interested. But they did say if it got damaged in an accident they would only replace it with the OEM system. Which would cost them a lot more!!
