Forgot to do my final drive oil with my oil change this weekend. So figured I would do it before the ride to work real quick.

5 min job turned into a call to the boss with a see you tomorrow.... Stripped the fill bolt with zero pressure on it grrrr. Haven't used a ez out in 20 years and it worked on the first try. That was a relief.

Boris Possible this is the murder https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_of_Sophie_Toscan_du_Plantier. It has again been in the headlines as a documentary on Netflix and another on Sky. Both have done an in debth study around the murder and also the events since then up to and including the attempts of the French to have the main suspect extradited to France to stand trial. These attempts are still on going. Take into account that this murder happened in December 1996. It does not paint a great picture of The Gardaí (Irish Police) and their practices of the time. Thankfully we have progressed from there.

Mr IB is a wrong’un. Good series though.

Along the same lines, but true story dramatised, The Serpent is worth a look.

Evil Genius on Netflix is a fascinating watch, with some shocking real footage……..bizarre event.

Received the new Fan Assembly yesterday.

I had to remove the Air-Box to gain access to the Harness connection for the Radiator Fan. It's mounted to the Frame under the Airbox.
I was dreading putting the vent-hose back on the bottom from all the hype I've read about, but it wasn't bad at all.

She's just about rideable again.
Just need to get the Crash-Bars re-mounted.

Replaced the spark plugs. Cleaned the throttle bodies (lightly). I swear I will never trust another dealer again. When I bought the bike I was told it needs nothing. I asked if the dealer had the previous owner's service records and was told they did not, but they inspect the bikes thoroughly. Uh huh, B.S. :( Bike needed new pads, one rear new rotor, air filter was filthy, oil was nasty (diff too), and now when I replaced the plugs the air box breather hose clamp was missing, lol. Oh well. I am becoming more intimate with the bike which is a good thing. Rant over.

I do 99% of my bike, I do not trust even in my shadow, the way you did it, it is the best way to know what your bike confidence is! other way will be based in someone that does not ride the bike. I want to know exactly how my bike is and there is no way to blame someone else.
Love to take care of my toys by me!!

I got my stock seat modified to my tender butt. On the original stock saddle I could ride for about 40 minutes before I had terrible pain at the arse bones. On the modified saddle I got 2.2 hours and by that time all my other limbs and back were aching, but nut much the butt. I guess that's the limit for continous driving for me. The local saddler cut some of the cushion material away from the locations of buttock bones and added elsewhere so I got much more even weight distribution over the whole butt area.
As the weather is becoming cold, the bike will go to garage and the real enjoyment of the new saddle is left for next riding season.

Its a BTRubber made in India, this will be a second rear tire of this brand, the first was a 60/40 and this is like 90/10. Did not have any problem with the first tire so reason why I bought this. The reason why I change model is due to tire road noice, so I will see how it works.

Thanks for the information. I don't think they export those to the US, so hadn't seen one before. Looks like a decent tire.

Big day today.

Knocked out the first oil and drive fluid change. Installed the nav bar stabilizers from Ladlesport, installed a set of heli barbacks, slapped on a larger than stock givi windscreen, put air in my tires the shop must not have checked as they where 22f 30r, and installed a rigid 6" light bar.

Made a 90 mile test drive,,,, I need to rotate my bars back a wee bit, and the rigid was well worth the money, I got the drive beam pattern and its amazing. Crash bars are on the way and I think I will put a set of fogs on those for always on low beam use run off the stock fogs plug.

End of next week I am off for 12 days and will install crash bars and filler plate from Tortured.
