Really cool Talon!
Any idea how much weight you lost by going to the Ninja fairing?

At this point, I just don't know what to say to the owner.   :truce: :truce: :truce:

I do. See post 80, 83, 89, and 93.
           Then go from thereā€¦.   
ie; Start with what you know, investigate why it's happening, and repair as needed.
                       ;)

Ride safe, Ted

Let me know how flexible you end up, and how it affects your riding.
And if you find an 18yr old...tell her she's in trouble, puts the lotion on her skin or she gets the hose.

I will let you know how it goes   :great:  and LOL at the last line   :rotflmao:

Oh boy, the challenge of getting to RitV and Cliff's HMR the next weekend. :motonoises:

One is  kinda on the way to  the other (if'n you start from South Floriday)...

I generally make a it two day trip going across. I camp at Land Between the Lakes in NW TN/western KY. Nice area and frugal camping options, especially frugal with the geezer card.

No worries, I have read your material over the years and recognize your C14 knowledge is far greater than mine, and certainly more helpful.  All good here!

Well, the new bike is fully outfitted, now for this boy's body. Second cataract removed today. Recovery fully expected by first of year. Then, on to training wheels with the new bike because it's been SOOO LOOONG since my last ride!  >:( May have to re-up the Beginner's riding class....

Awesome. New glasses, too?

Me again...forgot to mention...

Somebody said above, "sad to say it, but there was a reason the previous owner ditched this bike...."

Yep, there is a reason I sold it...not ditched.   I pretty much stopped riding it but a couple hundred miles per year.  I travel for four to six months at a time for business, and the bike was too nice to allow to age without use.  That is the only reason.

Thanks, Gary

Thank you for supplying some feedback,
and I will admit, yes, that was me that made the comment; Please accept my appology, but my comment was made based on only the facts that were provided prior to you explaining. As a person that has kept his fingers on the pulse of this bike mechanically since it reached the shores of the U.S.A., and have always read and responded to issues that arise in all tech/mech issues, to date I have never seen a laundry list of specific findings of metal particulate matter, being found in so many segregated areas of the bike (i.e., oil, and also coolant). I hope you understand my aprehension, and commentary of suspecting something was amiss, based on the number of findings the current owner posted, and how difficult it is to "propose what really happened" over the internet, without seeing the bike, and doing the wrench work myself, to examine it.

So, again, I'm sorry for the comment, but I think if you were going thru what he is right now, you would have mixed emotions also.

at this point, I just don't know what to say to the owner.   :truce: :truce: :truce:
