Maintenance day

Post by GHGoodwin » Wed Jun 19, 2013 10:11 am

I would be interested in putting together a "maintenance day" at my place. No real heavy wrenching but discussion and show-and-tell on how we work on our rigs. Food and beverage will be included. Burgers, dogs, salads and sodas. I'd like to meet more of this areas riders. Target is mid July weekend. Any takers?

I am soo in, would love to have a get together to learn stuff. My bike suffers from my lack of knowlege. Keep me posted, and as long as my work schedule allows for it, give me a date and I'll see what I can do.

OK. Here we go. Date - June 13/14 . Rain date 20/21. Opens at 10AM. Closes ?. 13th or 14th by group choice. What do we cover? We could set valves then go over carbs and Harmonize. We could shave the cable mounts and get rid of the return cable section (really helps with adjusting cables). I have a set of CVKs that are off my ride that could be dismantled and inspected. Could grease splines and rear u-joints. Brakes? Your choice.

RSVP via this thread so I know how much food/drink to plan for. I plan on setting up in the back barn which is a short ride across the lawn. Enough room for five or six rigs inside. Concrete floor.

You might want to reconsider the dates, unless time travel is part of regular maintenance. :wink:

I'm working both days in the evening (2nd shift) but will try to take at least a few hours of either day would be ok I'm planning to cut that return section off and replace both cables. Maybe save it for that weekend.

Also going to Heindl's on 27th. Meant weekend before. Might have misunderstood your post.
