Changed the rectifier to an aftermarket one......spent 2 hours taking off the rear wheel, seat, tank and shock to get to it.......put it all back together and put the dry wheels back in ready for the California Superbike School at Silverstone next week..........

Tomorrow will be dialling the dry settings back in and loading it on the trailer

Nada today. My meds made a little sick so I missed a ride in the canyons. Yesterday I picked up some Frog Toggs rain gear and a battery tender for when my USB to ECU cable comes in. I'm still waiting for my Arrow slip on and rear sets.

Stared at it because I'm waiting for my connectors to come in from Eastern Beaver. If I had known it was going to take this long for those damn things to come in I would have just had decosse hook things up! I've stared at her for the past 2 weeks.

2008 Daytona 675 - She was murdered 30Jan13

Nothing today. (It's 8am)

But yesterday I met up with a mate on a ZX/10R and we hit the hills. Rode the wheels off both bikes on The Creek Run - a winding ribbon of road that follows a creek through the Mt Lofty Ranges. It's out personal TT.

Wound up through Lobethal, back down the hill, ground the sliders at Photo Corner and then on to the Mad Mile. Crossed up wheelies over The Crest followed by a late lunch at The Cudlee Cafe.

Then on up Fox Creek Road and towards Ashton on some of the best twisty roads...more 'responsible' TT action through Castle Curves, then carved up Marble Hill Road. Mid-winter bliss.

Almost froze our arses off, but roads were dry and barely a car in sight. Zero traffic lights from go to whoah. Joy!

Found out the cable from the exup valve snapped :( I heard a loud pop yesterday when I turned it on going to my girl's house last night. Walked around it and found nothing but I had to go... so I left and the CEL was on. Turned it on today and heard the little valve motor several times and found the wire for the exup valve snapped :( I've heard of people talk of this but never read any of the threads. Thought the threads were about something that could be fixed after exup valve problem occurred. Not that the cable snapped and to do preventive maintenance on it b4 it happened (still haven't read those threads hehe). Oh well, time to take the valve and cat off :)
