I was lazier lol. I just ran a long tie over the side towards the keylock, didn't bother to drill a hole. But your way is definitely more hidden; since mine is a racebike that's not a concern.

  1. oil change
  2. checked clutch stack height
  3. checked cam chain tension (manual tensioner)
  4. installed heli-coil for stripped clutch cover bolt
  5. replaced chain/sprockets
  6. checked stator/CPS

Next I'll check the fuel pump pressure. I'm determined not to have a mechanical problem like my past two racing events. Any other suggestions?

ok, we got the ZTR mower... just fun! ok, bike...
Got my Dbl banjo, bracket, bolts from 2wheelpros in today (still need 1frt rotor bolt, Anyone gotta spare??). So, I bled up the stock brake calipers/master and started on setting up the R6 caliper/brembo master combo with different S/S lines (from old project) to swap over to for comparison later.
Then I went after the windscreen...got it and mirrors today too (Thanks Steve) removed decals and paint, then polished it up good enough to be ready to install with the mirrors and upper fairing.
Then I noticed something unusual... a kinked hose under the right side of airbox... the SIA hoses were T-ed together with the crankcase vent hose from under throttle bodies. Hmmm... this isn't right...(SIA stuff is gone) ya gotta have some positive crankcase venting for piston blow-by somewhere. So I'm gonna fix that tomorrow by T-ing it into the airbox (gotta search/read-up in the morning).
also looking at other things while I'm in there.
BTW: what is preferred fix for an airbox seal replacement?
Thanks,
Catch me later!

Buffed out the scratches on the tank and polished the rest of the body work. With it being around 105 degrees real feel in the garage, working on anything was short lived.

Changed the oil and oil filter. I used Motul 7100 10w40 with a HiFlo HF204 filter. What a difference shifting over the dealership's Castrol synthetic "bulk" oil. I am sure setting the chain slack to where it should be helped with that too. I also set up my Venom paddock stands I bought used and used them on the bike. Are the Venom stands the best on the market, no. They are nice though for the average person in their garage doing maintenance.

Drove the bike back from the dealer yesterday, on the trailer. My exhaust blew a hole in the back and my extended RPMOne warranty got me a new one. Might try something Custom..

Brother, I feel your pain haha 2 days and no real progress just staring at bike, poking at it and reading, searching (everywhere) for images to confirm what is amiss with the headlight mounts alignment...(08 D675) maybe it's a mix of different year parts that don't match up?, I just don't know but something doesn't seem to fit correctly. (empty mount hole on bracket)
Can anyone tell me what is wrong or missing here?
a picture of this area would help greatly.
thanks!
