I did that dance this weekend too. The thought was that I might get a better look at the clutch cable if I took the airbox off.

It really didn't help much.

I've heard/seen that you've been riding with Barrys' old bike lately too.

When you say local DIY shop, in what regards do you mean? It sounds like something I would like to be at every day.

There are several shops like this in the inner city part of Richmond and also DC. It's common to find them where garage space is basically for the ultra rich.

It's a coffee shop that has a garage area in the back with lifts, tools, and a tire machine. Unfortunately, the garage is open only when the coffee shop is open with the exception of Thursday nights (members late night). It usually caters to the cafe racer/old bike crowd but I go there to use the tire machine and chain breaker tool. Basically stuff I don't have at home.

Replaced the throttle and clutch cables. Throttle cables were bad because I messed them up while installing them last, and the clutch cable was old. At almost 29k miles, figured I can spare the $45 for all the cables and have the peace of mind.

Thinking of buying Rizoma rearsets to try out on the track. If you have experience with them, I'd appreciate insight/info.

Have them and love them. There is a thread on this forum somewhere where I have written my review. I upgraded the pegs from fixed to the folding ones to avoid some buzz.

I've pulled the trigger, waiting on PJ who's waiting on his supplier. Hope I get them before my next track day on May 12th. Anyone want to join me at Barber on May 12th?

Ordered Sunday night and received Wednesday. 5% off coupon code is INMATE(from ADV Rider forums).
Also added Sato Racing bar end weights to the Rizoma bars, it moves the mirrors farther out so my big paws don't hit the mirrors. They aren't super heavy, but they are 160mm long, so the outer diameter is 30mm and perfect for mounting bar end mirrors.

I just ordered some of these. They look to get really good reviews with good longevity. Maybe now people will see me.

Dreamed about it being picked up by the shipping company tomorrow. Just my luck they will delay again. The wait is killing me. Good thing I still have the Harley to ride or I would be going crazy. lol

Slapped the el cheapo ebay vortex rear sets on last night and took them for a lap today. Mind my dirty bike and the finished stock chain, this is it’s last ride. I didn’t let it rust, and it’s not stretched, it’s just spraying it’s red mist of death out in places, it’s time to change it out.



So far I like them, it seems like all the way forward and down is pretty similar to stock positioning. I am currently set on one hole up and one hole back. I can feel my legs getting more tired on today’s longer ride, but I love how much more my legs are locked into the tank. They do transmit a bit more vibes to your feet, but I do wear a pretty thin sidi vortice race boot, YBMV (your boots may vary). The trade off of this, they are very stiff, and do not flex at all, which provides greater feedback when setting up for a corner. The greater ground clearance payed dividends today, when I started inching away from will, he said his pegs were touching down. Shifting is a lot more clicky but smoother with better feedback.

Got in about 200 miles on them today, so far so good.

Took the front end apart, took the cluster apart and fixed the reset button. Cleaned it up and installed new headlight bulbs. Got a couple hundred miles in yesterday.
