    The way recepticle sticks out I did good not placing it next to tach.



    I enjoy the mod very much I need to get one for the Rex too as my phone eats battery. I do not think hard mounting for the Rex but hideaway pigtail perhaps.

    Bit of dry cleaning today. Grandpa taught me to hand clean and touch everything on a bike while doing it to catch potential problems. Today cut chain needing adjustment...

    Squeezed chain service job after finishing compulsory tranny drain and refill on wifey wagon. Tranny service extended itself into throttle body clean and air filter replacement that I had to bike to bring from the parts store. I was able to wiggle myself from the rear brake job as they are still 30%.



    Thing is to handle big torque on the ground, not with bike in the air. Suki has giant 36mm nut on the rear axle with almost 100Nm of torque.



    I pre treated adjusters with graph Molly when I was doing resto job on the bike couple of years ago, so there was no problem turning them on either side.

    Reused cotter pin is a sign of a bago. Loop size doesn't matter, diameter does. I trim them to length after installing and bending the wiskers, so just make sure pin is long enough.
    To select; test fit in the shaft hole, needs to go easy but without wiggle.

    Famous torque wrench works superb for large torques and particularly castle nuts.
    Castle slot needs to align with hole in the shaft to allow for cotter pin insertion. Note that there are usually two sets of holes, try to insert cotter pin in each, after torquing is done, select one that has easy fit.
    Sometime more adjusting is necessary to have right cotter pin fit. Add torque to achieve this alignment, never go back . Exception is fully loosening and reapplying full spec torque again to achieve pin alignment.



    Test ride is a must

    Waiting for warm up, it is going but slow. Started at 10C in the wee hours and is 16 now. So gardening and shine plus polish.
    Suki has developed rapid paint flaking on the rotors, bit anoying



    Looked at used replacement but this looks to be common problem. To fix it I would need to remove and strip, blasting would be nice.... Where to find someone with sand blaster?

    While searching I got idea of buying complete GSXR wheel with rotors...

    Wheel idea turned out to be bugger. So far I can only find wheels with rotor that I like in 300 bucks range. It's a no go, spending to much money on big boy.

    Returned to the rotor refinishing idea and this is what I find:



    Portable media blaster. Apparently fine walnut shells do good enough job for small projects.

    Didn't even unpacked the blaster but pushed yard work, so it is out of the way now.
    Fixed sinked spot where tree used to be. Missus was very impressed. I guess I can order center stand for vfr now?



    Pressure cleaned and sanded whole thing front and back.



    Almost Miami beach...
