My first bike was a Honda Super 90. (68/69ish)
My buddy rode a Yamaha Twin Jet 100.
It would whip mine ...

Is the HS-1 that I'm remembering the Twin Jet?
Looks a little different.

Ride safe, Ted


Update: Just did a search and see that the Twin Jet was a YL-1. (Different bike)

Cleaned the Wing and installed a charging plug in its left fairing pocket for a Garmin, along with a Battery tender pigtail on the bat'tre with an adapter for heated gear. Removed the armrests from the "Queen's Chair", and put on new Dunlop E-4's. Amazing how good new tires feel. Now, I just need somewhere to go. (I did do a one hour lunch ride today. 72 degrees and sunny!)

Next up a dual USB charger in the trunk and heated grips, along with a voltmeter and possibly a 2" taller windshield.

Finished up the Super Tenere valve clearance inspection, plug regap, Arrow header install, TB synch, ecu reflash, clutch fluid flush, oil change, final drive fluid, coolant change, throttle cable lube, barkbuster install, new set of Mitas E07's, TPMS install, and started packing. It was a busy weekend in the shop.

And yes, the valve inspection is VERY invasive.

The six fiddy Versys looks quite similar when checking the valves. It actually goes rather quickly though, considering the amount of stuff in the way. Do you have to pull the throttle bodies?

I see you're going to Cliff's, somewhere else before hand? Pretty sure I'm stopping in NOLA for a coupla three days on the way. I gotta kill some brain cells with an ex boss lady, it's on my "list". She lives near the Abita brewery. She's Coonass, this oughtta be good.



See ya at Cliff's.  :beerchug:

Oh yes, the throttle bodies come out...and then that hidden pea sized clump of dirt falls in. Both sides.

I might have to shift my schedule. Bike and I are ready to roll, but my required taskings may push me back a week. Ugh. That means I miss Cliff's rally.

I need to retire.

Yes you do. Tick tock, the clock never stops.

I am saved from the pleasure of removing the Throttle bodies on the Vs but it is tight getting the cover in and out.

I set the valves at max at about 11k miles. Virtually no movement at 34k. Awesome. Of course I ride like a little old lady.  :rotflmao: :motonoises: :motonoises: :beerchug:

Ok so I added 3 Ram mounts to the H2 SX. I also added a small XScreen to the top of the windshield. With no full larger screens made for this yet I'm hoping to keep the morning cool wind off me. Not to mention keeping rain out of my face.
