Reminded myself why I don’t miss working on four wheeled vehicles...



Don’t know if I can be bothered doing anything else... but ready to get rebuilding now...

Took it for a run round the block...

Rear hub rebuild, new chain & sprockets, rebuilt clutch master cylinder, new slave cylinder, new nerf bar nets... ready to rock for the winter.



Do front arms and suspension service next off season...

dry, bit of sun, just about 6degrees, took the SMT for some errands and a quick ride to a befriended Ducati specialist for a cuppa.
still like the SMT a lot!

So I'm now a Power Parts whore like the rest of you...;)
Just picked up a little prezzie for my 1190, looks like I'll be having roasted chestnuts next time I'm out.



Was a bit of a bargain on fleabay.

I was only looking for the basic ergo seat but seeing as this one is heated I may as well wire it in.
Sadly it didn't come with the proper button, and they are £86 from KTM so instead I'm gonna figure out how to signal to it and then put something on the bars to operate it.

Good stuff!

My road bikes are in a heated tent at the moment.. but my Mrs won't put hers away for winter so today I put a relay on her heated grips so they turn off with the ignition as she often forgets to do it.
They are supposed to turn themselves off when the engine is off by the voltage sensing circuit in them, but this is obviously shit because an hour later they'll still be on happily draining the battery.
So that's now done and I have some brownie points... which will no doubt expire before I get to use them. :rolleyes:

fuck me the tide is a long way out at weston



Nobody else? Ok I’ll go...

Mrs doing some doughnuts...





Mrs pushing her quad over the crest of a big dune... luckily we went round the back of it first, it’s shifted quite a bit.



Still two wheels for me though....

Yesterday I made a handlebar switch to control my newly acquired heated seat.
It was a right fiddly PITA as I used the OEM connector for the seat which is pretty small. For the switch I just used a cheapy generic start button and then stuck a pair of LEDs on it's side so I can see what it's doing.
Anyway, it seems to work so it can sit in a box for a few months now until I get my bike out again.

Here's an interesting video (not) of me testing it, you've been warned. :burp:

Fitted a massive exhaust to my 790. 😳. The guy I bought it off made a bit of a dogs breakfast removing the baffle but I have managed to tidy it up and found a grommet to fit the hole in the carbon cap.

Been stormy and pissing it down so went for a play. Put the wheels back on the 200, gave it a good going over, dropped the fuel out the other bikes and lobbed in it. Not moved in yonks, starter after a couple of kicks and ran fine...

Gets it out the front... pissing fuel everywhere, looks like the float bowl flange... bolts I could reach were a little loose... carb out job, now getting dark. Feckin raging!



Inshallah it’ll rain again...
