Tech day in Southern Ontario?

As a newbie to BMW wanting to learn how to maintain my own bike, I'd be interested if anyone is planning a tech day in the Southern Ontario. I've read about these in other regions and was wondering if this is something that has been done here. Let me know. Thanks.

You missed on last weekend (Saturday the 23rd) in Etobicoke. John "blubyu" Rood was kind enough to host one at his place. Not sure when the next one will be but I think I heard someone talk about a fall session.

I don't need anything done right now but would be willing to give a hand.

Re: Tech day in Southern Ontario?

Sorry I missed the Etobicoke one last weekend! Nick thanks for the offer. I expect to need my 10,000 km service in the next month or so. Right now I'm trying to get some of the tools together - looking for a something to do the electronic differential balance. I have the Jim VonBaden video but wouldn't mind an experienced hand. If your ok with it, I'll try to connect when the time gets near. Thanks.

Re: Tech day in Southern Ontario?

I started tearing down my LT almost naked trying to get at the clutch to replace it. Had to make a sudden trip to Mexico and will be back next Friday. If you want to see a naked LT drop by after next Friday June 5th when I'll be back.

It's so sad to know she's going to be undressed for so long.

Garry,

Good time to replace the air filter on the LT if needed. Got to love BMW engineering.

Re: Tech day in Southern Ontario?

Took the Air filter out and looked at it. Blew out a little dust but not much, Still OK for another 40Km. I ordered QUICK CONNECTS for the gas lines so it won't be so bad any more.
