Today I will reconnect all electronics, and try my hand at TuneECU. Check for DTC's, balance throttle bodies, possible re-map, and TPS/Adaptation reset.

Lastly, oil and filter change. Was planning on installing the, Renthal clipons, but I'm tired of working on the bike for now.

When ALL is complete, I will post a thread on "12K service observations". I will include "tips" that may save future DIY adventurers some headache.

Looking forward to it :)

I finally got around to adding a relay for my heated grips.




...and performed a no cost D.I.Y. fenderectomy.

60000? Wow!

I looked at a duffle bag, was worried about scuffing the paint and burning the bag on the mufflers, so am mounting panniers to my tail pack. It's going to be interesting! And we don't really have a route or a plan (just a couple of roads to cross off the list) just gonna see where the road takes us :)

I took the winter blanket off the bike to take a peak and almost cried. God damn I hate the winter months.
