Concours C10 / ZG1000 General Chat and Tech / Re: Removing Rear Wheel
« Last post by Mettler1 on Today at 04:11:44 pm »
 

Bike is on a 2x4 on the center stand.  I meant to strap the stand to the front tire and forgot.  Will probably go do that before I put stuff back on. 

Thanks all.

Andy

   Good idea with the strap to the front wheel !!  I did not one time and my C10 ended up on the garage floor. OH POOP,  NOT GOOD!!  Broke the left mirror and cracked the fairing by the turn signal. Had to borrow my neighbors hoist to get it upright. Really not TOO bad. Sometimes we learn the hard way!! :-[

Nope, Buzzard is an old curmudgeon residing in the frigid valleys of Western Colorado. I do not endorse products often. But the combination of inexpensive, easy to install, and great results deserve a write up. While I am at it, let me say this. As an ageing motorcyclist, I have been on a program to buy a bike I've always wanted, use it a year or so, sell it, and get another bike I've always wanted. This Concours has completely screwed that program up. I like the Concours so much, I cannot think of another bike I would wish to replace it with. So I keep on riding it. I do have a couple of other bikes, off road varieties, and I am always shopping.

This isn't a review of the flash, as I only got the ECU back in the mail this morning and haven't had a chance to test it, but a comment on SISF.  I got the Evolution flash in 2017, and liked it, but as someone who spends most of the time on rides hustling through tight turns the Mountain Runner looked like a better fit.  I emailed Steve for instructions to ship, and had a unique question about payment because I had a pile of gift cards from Christmas I was hoping to use somehow to cover the cost.  I don't want to say exactly what Steve did for me, because I don't want to put him on the spot, but he very graciously made me an offer that benefitted me, but cost him personally, that he didn't have to make.  I sent the ECU off and got it back in a week. I'm sure I'll be pleased with the MR flash, but I'm very grateful for Steve going out of his way in customer service.  What he did he didn't have to do, and it wouldn't have made me any LESS happy as a customer if he didn't, but he did it anyway without any prompting from me.  He made the offer cold on his own initiative.  When a business owner will do that it says a lot about them.  Thank you Steve!  I'll report back about the flash then too.

 :rotflmao:  I think the tank capacity reduction was more to reduce weight than to accommodate "aging" bladders. Gas weighs 6 lbs. per gallon so ... . It's still pretty much in line with the competition.

Back wheel came off pretty easily!  Took both exhausts off with zero problem.  Removed brake caliper, hammered the axle out of there (after removing cotter pin and searching all over for a 27mm socket).  Had some Honda moly 60 grease lying around so I lubed the splines in the final drive while I was at it and drained the final drive oil.

I keep waiting to find out if the new engine is really that much more efficient that the smaller fuel tank makes no difference between fill ups. And will you miss the nice big analog gauges?

The fuel tank capacity was reduced to bring it more
in line with the the target market rider’s aging bladders
to allow for more frequent pee breaks.
Kudos to Honda for caring about our comfort.

Mine should be on the way back from Steve. Two rounds of flashing... First was the decel flash when I got the bike in 2016. and now this one.

It's going to be a bit different this spring. Installed the Penske and AK-20s while the ECU was on vacation.

I did get the bolt out (did it while getting the bike ready for storage, so have the luxury of time now). Was able to grab the head since it was on one of the outside carbs.

I had it on the calendar, but I think I'll be staging the Tenere in Seattle for a NWT run.
