With the healer I can make changes as I try different things.
Sending the ECU to IVAN every time would get expensive.
Especially from my locale.

By wheel size I believe you mean tire size. Like going from a 190/50 to a 190/55 or even changing tire brands or models.

Wheel size:Canuckian for tire change.

Besides the fact shipping back and forth to Ivan is expensive, can be tricky as well, especially if someone screws up address.

Think your on the right path my friend.

It’s a Matris M46K, got it from PJ @ $805, it’s on his Sportbikeforhire website. Got a little over 500 miles on it since yesterday morning, so far I have to say it’s performing every bit as good as the Ohlins TTX I’m used to. I didn’t really have time to verify the set-up before taking off, but I’m very happy with it! Went out on a bit of a limb with a brand I was not familiar with, but PJ highly recommended it and I can see why.

Washed and waxed the 06 as it were dirty after a great ride last weekend. Gotta say, it performed flawlessly with anything I threw at it. I been playing with suspension settings. Darryl is shorter than me but, I'd say close to my weight. So, being set up for him and his liking, I had to tinker a bit.
Tightened up front and back springs just a tad as I like a firm sus. Rebound is pretty much there. I also lowered the forks down a touch as in raising the bike back up. Mighta been since he is a shorter fella, he need the bike lower.
Got called back into work tonight but, hoping to catch up with Brian (bmidd) tomorrow and really check out what Ive done and how she feels. Keep a good thought fer your mangy old coyote to get home soon?
Thanks y'all, be safe, wear your gear.

Rode up to Suches, gave a GTR and a Camaro a laugh.

I’d finished 60 N of Dahlonega and was jamming to my music, maybe a bit too much, maybe I was dancing a bit in the seat as I coasted down a straight. and then looked in my mirrors and saw the two cars behind me being treated to my antics.

Laughed, offered to let them by but they didn’t move so off the breakfast I sped.

A few laps of wolf pen and blood mountain with Cruzman before some BBQ in Dahlonega and home I went with some bananas pudding for my wife tied to the handlebars.

Sounds like a fun time, I was thinking of texting you today to see if you're riding.

I just finished de-catting my bike. I was having trouble removing the bits from the headers until I realized I can use a magnet, then everything went much more smoothly.

Do you have a pic? I have been thinking of removing my passenger pegs and brackets
I bet the left side looks real clean?

Valve Adjustment

My bike's vibrations have increased in the last couple thousand miles and I'm at 25.6k miles so it's time for a valve adjustment. Removed the radiator today, plugged all the hoses, took the airbox off, opened the crankshaft cover and removed the gasket with a razor, then put it back on so nothing gets in it.

Going to do the actual job tomorrow. Would've done today but feeler gauges didn't get here til 5pm. Want this done before the EC rally so I can't blame the bike for my slow cornering.

Checked and rechecked the valve clearances. All intakes were spot on. All exhaust valves were too tight. Usually around 0.1mm. Ordered 5 x 1.85mm shims on Amazon for $6, should be here Sunday, Called all the shops in the area, only one guy was selling shims. Got 3 shims for $5 each.

Interestingly, the timing chain wasn't any looser after removing the tensioner, maybe because I put a ziptie on the intake camshaft. Going to try to remove it and see what happens when I get back to it.
