    Ordered PS1 spring. Lesson cost 7 bucks.

    Anyhow, I already fixed the clamp and updated upper mount, just the spring remains.
    Guess what, different bag with identical spring as the one sent before, 80 mm long instead of 60 mm.


    Crap...

    I tried one more time to get right length acrapovic spring. Not sure why is that but I have now 3 80 mm springs that do not fit my bike. 2 are in misslabled bags that say 60 mm on them. Beats me. eBay buying do not solve the problem beyond money back.

    Anyhow finally I ordered some springs by length and behold got the right length.

    Lof service today



    I am glad there small, internal filter was nice and clean. Primary filter is expensive at 16 bucks. Her Honda CRV has 2.2 liter inline four and filter is only 10 bucks. I compared both filters today, thread diameter look the same, so it is gasket diameter. CRV filter is 30 % longer, but I think there is room under the fairing. Only thing CRV filter is bright blue in color...

    Bit tatty for some reason so cleaned up. Brushed with kerosene and rinsed with hydrogen oxide.



    What do you have avaliable for ring free? I hear you do have seafoam. B-12 here is half price compared to seahype, so no brainer to Polish.

    Just ordered rear tire yesterday, with center stand installed and single arm swing arm rear wheel removal on those is a breeze. I get a kick of hitting the lugnuts with air wrench in car like manner.
    Getting ready for start of big riding season.... So I am sticking to Michelin on this bike.

    Dropped wheel off for tire installation. Grease turds scratched the rim. Tropics, but the life goes on



    Note lower caliper is for parking brake



    Hefty lugnut torque.



    Cute as pie lug nuts. Yeah for flip flops



    Back together just before ETA hurricane. Another no ride weekend... wet and sandy

    Re: Honda Big Boy American

    Finally bit of window between rainfall and street flooding from little hurricane Eta. Took big boy for a spin to get the new rubber scratched. Unpleasant surprise, check engine light ON. Rats... code 35, exhaust flapper servo. Didn't have time to test servo before going to work. Hopefully it is dead instead of wireing problem. See them unwanted on the eBay for 20 bucks.
    Anyhow, I had to jump wires at diagnostic connector to read and clear the code. I searched for Honda scanner but got 4 wire connector to OBD2 connector adapters for cheap money
    Anybody of you fine gentlemen tried that setup? Would standard OBD2 reader work on onda with the adapter?

    Servo passes the power test.



    Resistance test results are also fine
