Installed some used lowering pegs I bought off a member here and adjusted the shift lever, but still playing with the brake lever. I think I ran out of adjustment and still not completely happy with how high the brake lever feels in relationship to the lowered peg.

I ran into same issue when I installed my Knight Design lowering pegs a couple weeks ago so yesterday I got the old Dremel tool out and cut about 1/4" off the push rod.

New air filter. Topped up coolant reservoir tank (it was a bit low). Tomorrow is install Project D rad guard, and change oil.

Throttle 8

Exactly how did you top off the coolant tank?
Best suggestion I've heard was to pull the top vent line off the radiator fill neck then using a turkey baster squeeze the coolant into the line until the tank shows proper level?
Is this what you did or do you have another trick.

Thanks,

Topped off the oil & coolant. Then installed Murph's bearing up shifter kit. This is a nice up grade. I immediately felt less free play in the shift lever and generally much better feel when up/down shifting. Not a bad deal for $ 21

Installed Piaa horns and replaced the license plate light with a small license plate/running/brake light...
The extra brake light pulses a few times when I brake, and then stays on..

Installing tires next..

Ride safe, Ted

Well I guess that answers my question as to if the RP5 is good for our heavy bikes... Bummer I don't think these stock bridgestone's will last that long, looks like RP4s are in my future.

Trying to get the last 1000 miles out of the OEM tires and like Ron203 posted, I have a new set of PR4GT's in the garage waiting to be mounted.

Bought some generic bead seat cover from Walmart for $15. Fixed it over the Corbin. Feels cooler already.

Thanks,

I had the side Tupperware off to install the air filter. I could probably have changed the filter without disassembly, but it was raining and I had nothing else to do; plus I really wanted to do a good snoop around without the plastics for the very first time.

Avon agreed to replace my tires due to a wobble, but won't do so until they see my current tires..
So, I temporarily installed Shinko's so I can ship these back to Avon.

I went from angel gt's to bridgestone t31 gt's, at least for me there is not much of a handling difference. they perform in the rain as well as the angel's did.

Rode it to work for the time in a few weeks after finishing up some work.

Valves checked and shims adjusted, throttle bodies sync'ed, coolant changed, new air filter, clutch speed bleeders added and fluid flushed, new front tire, ECU flashed and full Muzzy ZX14 exhaust installed.   :motonoises:

This weekend I'll install the rest of the speed bleeders and flush the front and back brakes.
