Hi Guys:

I think im gonna share with ya some past week work, well that how it goes...
It was time to ghange the engine oil so after i take the old oil out and went to screw the bolt i damege the threads of the crakcase cover ya big deal, the i went to the yamaha main dealer i bought a new cover and it comes with a new bolt with washer and gascket 13 bolts and a 1 dowle and about 3'' long copper dowle with 2 O rings.

So i start to remove the headers and then the cover, and install the new cover with the gascket and i some of bond just for safty reasen, i dont want any oil spills to the rear tyre while im driving, and i add the new oil Motul 300v 15-50 double ester, this is my first using motul oil for the engine, this oil motul it looks more quality than the yamalube 15-50 synthitic oil, till now i did not ride the bike when i do i will let you.

Also it was a chance to change the water hose the one that locait behind the headers, i install samco silicone hose.

Flush the old the radiator water, and pour a new 2 litre disteld water and red line water wetter.

Hope this will do...
thx

Productive Sunday

Changed my oil and flushed my coolant to swap to water wetter.

Swapped OEM clip-ons for Renthal w/ Renthal med grips.




And finally got these boys mounted after sitting in my garage for 4 months

I'm with you I can't ever wait to install parts. I track my packages a dozen times a day till they arrive and I'll leave work early to go put them on when I know they are sitting at my door!!!

Yea I was thinking about looking into getting em PC'd.

I don't like parts loitering off the bike either, but when you've got a wife to satisfy, your own business to keep afloat, AND satisfy Uncle Sam being active duty, then it can be a bit of a burden... or maybe I'm just making excuses

Very nice indeed. I would probably leave the white or purchase a carbon lower and paint parts of it in white and fit a carbon front guard and it would flow nicely
