Ride Reports, Roads, Routes, and Places / Re: Mexico

Car washes are popular here - for $4.82 (80 pesos) the bike got a thorough pressure wash, soap, degreaser, drying and detailing. #1 spark plu didn't fill with water either...

The hotel has me park the bike in a locked (and unused) tennis court. Almost every hotel in Mexico will find a place to park the bike in a safe place. Motorcycles in Mexico can drive around parking lot gates, lane split, and get half prices on toll roads....
I'm looking for someone who can do a proper valve adjust on my 2011 C14. I was going to ride down to Texas and have Fred Harmon do it but its 1,150 miles one way (which I don't mind)  but  2 1/2 days of down time without transportation while I wait is a drag. I live 125 miles north of Vegas but don't know of a shop in Vegas or Salt Lake City that can be trusted. My bike has 45,000 miles on it and it had a "stealership adjust" at 24,000 miles and I know it wasn't done right since they charged 3.5 hours labor including coolant flush with the supposed valve adjust. Anybody know of a legit mechanic in Utah, Nevada, or Arizona that can be trusted?
Thanks for the input.

I had planned on ordering a valve cover gasket. Isn't there an o-ring that should also be done at the same time?

You will be amazed at how well the AM-26's will handle. I rode on them for several years on my
C-10 before doing the 17" conversion.

Will be checking the front skin manyanna. May be visiting the rug rat in chino area Friday Night. Keepya posted  :great:
well... glad that's settled with no drama  ;)  Steve
I have 2" risers from Helibars.  The stock windscreen when fully down will barely touch the clutch reservoirs when the handlebars are turned to the extreme right or extreme left position.  This does not cause any problem.  I recently installed a Puig touring windscreen and it does not touch the reservoirs.

I not have my ECU flashed yet. I've been contemplating it, but if its that easy to lift the front wheel off the ground then I'm not interested. I would like it (the flash) for extra umpphh and throttle responsiveness, easy of use at slow speeds, etc., but not for sake of popping wheelies.

Can you help clarify this?  Thanks

I know this isn't anything new to everybody that has researched tires, but I just joined the group of people that have had an Avon 3DXM delaminate.  My bike developed a very noticeable wobble. First it was just while accelerating turning a corner from a stop. Eventually, it did it while driving straight.  The rear tire was squared off but still had some tread on it.  The front was cupped and in need of replacement.  A new front tire did not correct the wobble, so I dug a little deeper.  With the bike on the center stand, the rear tire had about 3/8 of an inch of axial run out. The pictures are what the inside of the tire looked like when I pulled it off.  A short 20 mile ride today indicated all is fixed with a new Avon AM26 Road Rider on the back.  The Avon 3DXMs that came off did have 7200 miles on them for what that's worth.
