Bike doesn't need much, just tyres and an oil change. Soon on both counts. Then a tank bag, rear bags, rear sets and spoon on some new shoes and she'll be good for another few thousand miles.


I am jealous of the better service intervals on the 1290 I'll tell ya that.

Looking awesome, Ian!

First thoughts? You had it remapped or put PCV on yet?

Not yet mate, only 100 miles on clock, still another 500 to go :x

Am also still waiting for the link pipe, and newer style baffle from AR.

As I was untwisting the O2 sensor wires it struck me that I've got them turned off in Tune ECU. Can I not just replace them with plugs?

Yes


Thanks!

Would you happen to know the size required?

Replaced my 5 year old battery that would barely hold a charge. Took a lot less time than I thought it would... now it starts up nice and quick! :)

Productive fettling morning! :D

Replaced the power cable for my Zumo sat-nav because after five years one of the little connector pins had broken so I was getting intermittent power supply. It was always switching off just as I was coming up to an important interchange and leaving me lost. Cost £33 for a new cable which I thought was a bit steep but what can you do?

I finally got a chance to take off my carbon rear mudguard and chain guard to trim the end off the front of the chain guard. The thing is so flimsy that when you ride fast the front of the guard wobbles down and hits the chain so it has worn a big groove and looks a big mess. Cut off about 30mm and reshaped it all so should do the trick.

My Rizoma rear-sets have solid aluminium footrests which were originally knurled to give a lot of grip. I reckon I've done about 15,000 miles with these on now and they have worn off all the sharp edges, especially on the left gear change side. Last week on a 60 mile run through fast Wiltshire B reads my foot kept slipping off the pegs on bumpy corners leaned over - gave me a few scares. I was going to re-file all the knurling but when I took them off I realised I could just swap them over because it's only the front facing and outside edge that has worn smooth. Now I have another 15K to feel confident!

Couldn't face cleaning the bike though - I've not got a garage anymore and so bike is outside the front of the house and I have no stand here. Doing a lot of miles at the moment through pretty rural scenery so it will only get covered in road dust and mud and cow shit. So I did the rounds with a rag and WD40 just cleaning the crucial bits and giving everything a good lubricate and check-over. I quite like bikes to look like this. Sort of covered in dust but well maintained and functional. I think my days of polishing and pampering motorbikes is over. I just want them to work well! Also my bike is now ten years old so it has a lot of signs of being used regularly all year round - it's still in great mechanical condition and looks great but everywhere there are scuffs, wear marks, paint worn off the corners, fasteners not looking shiny but wearing a patina of oxidisation (not rust) that dulls everything down.

It's still a keeper for me though and still plenty fast enough to leave most other bikes I meet on my travels for dead. I'm always catching up other bikes on my lone travels and I stick behind them for a while out of courtesy sometimes but then get bored. I've been out on a few hideouts with local bikers but generally they always ride a bit slow for me. I do miss those days riding with Klink and Shade round Finchingfield way. Those guys were the only time I used to get pushed to my limit and sometimes a bit more. :D

Productive fettling morning! just like Bic's on the previous post :D

Last week, my rear right turn signal fell off the metal stem and was hanging by the wiring. I mixed up some Plast-Aid and added acrylic black paint, I smeared the PlastAid inside the rubber housing and around the metal stem and there was some minor squeeze out upon reinsertion that was very easily cleanable. Job done!

This Friday I rode and I had had a slight oil misting for a few weeks, from the bottom plate of the MotoHooligan air box, between the front and rear throttle bodies and I think this time I took care of it. Mostly the left side of my 'purty' orange frame was getting coated with oil. My uneducated guess was from the crankcase breather that is connected to the top of the air box.

So I removed the tank, air box and cleaned all the oil and I came to this wonderful forum where I found (This link) that my airbox was installed properly (The rubber o-rings between the TB's and the bottom plate of the MH Box) so what I did was to use a little petroleum jelly between the velocity stacks and the bottom plate to seal the area better.

If this does not work, I'll look into disconnecting the crankcase breather and installing a separate filter and catch hose on the side (As seen here).

Also, A few months ago, after much debating whether to replace my speedometer or not since parts of the digits were fading, I opened up my speedo, I cleaned and reconnected all connections, I used a little dielectric grease and I used silicone to seal the two halves together (As requested by manufacturer via a sticker on the bottom side of the speedometer). When I took it apart, there had not been ANY silicone. None. Once reassembled, all the digits came back and I've been on several long rides (5+ hours) and I can happily say I've taken care of the problem. No more fading digits!

This Friday I got caught in 45 minutes of rain on my way home and the speedo did not let any water in and it did not miss a beat. Yeay!

And those are some of the reasons why it's a love/hate relationship with my SD. Something always needs to be done after one or a few rides. Always.

Can I recommend vulcanet wipes if you don't have water to clean your bike. Just one sheet should be enough to give a decent clean. Comes with a polishing cloth.

rode this past weekend with some friends. We based out of Waynesville NC for the weekend. I was only there to ride with them Saturday so led them on some routes I knew in the area as well as getting some info from a local friends about some little roads to run around on. We had a great time, but the little roads we took were a bit more on the "adventure" side. I think he thought I was riding my Super Enduro, not my Super Duke. We did get in a few miles of dirt roads/trails that added a bit of excitement to the end of the day, but we had a great time. Weather was excellent and shot some decent video. I"ll try to post up something after I do some editing, but for now a few photos:

my friend had 40 miles on is new Tuono, but didn't seem to mind the dirt roads...
