Re: Tech Day???

I need do a brake fluid change. Looking for some guidance along the way and someone who has a mighty vac or equivalent to pump the fluid.

Mighty vac is not required, but you do need the funnel tool which I can provide. I also have a tire balancer and can provide the location that anyone needs to use. Would be nice to include a 911 reader.

I can bring the JVB DVD. No pump needed when you have the dreaded servo brakes.

I've got a GS911 reader and would be happy to come to a tech day - but would depend on when.

Re: Tech Day???

OK

We have a bunch of people interested. Shall we try and figure out a location and a date? What would people like to accomplish on their machines?

I am open for basically any date, but would Saturday April 10 work for most people? This would allow parts to be brought in if needed. Are we going to set a rain date?

I have a large drive shed that would allow adequate area for work on multiple bikes. If we want to have it elsewhere a least I would get a ride.

Work that needs to be done so far;
- non servo brake bleed
- Garry has 4 tires to mount
- I have a friend that could use a new front tire mounted as well


Lets hear what the consensus is and what everyone needs done.

I have the tire changing machine at my place. I also have a home made balancer. I have a shop that will fit bikes if it rains, 1 area concrete floor the rest gravel floor. (not as nice as yours Nick) April 10 I'll be at the Motorcycle show at the International Center. I have alot of tools, if there is any specific tool let me know and I'll see if I have one. I also have a spare bed if RealWing doesn't want to ride back the same day.

May 29th weekend is out as I am doing my Iron Butt. May 22 weekend I an in Edmonton.

Re: Tech Day???

Garry, your place would be great. An actual tire machine has to beat wrestling with 8" tire irons by hand.

Thoughts on April 17, 24 or beginning of May.

Re: Tech Day???

How about we say April 24th then on the thinking that earlier in the season is better?

24th is good for me. Please let me know who will be coming and what they want to work on. You can have it at my place, if $5.00 per person is OK, I'll have Esther make a batch of Chili and more for lunch.

OK, I will be there, do you need my tire balancer or any other tools? I am just finishing my spring tune up so I think I am good but I will know by then if I messed anything up that I need to work on... I guess we will get some time requirements and directions from you...

Mauro,
Don't forget that fancy $50 funnel. Want to stay over on 23rd and head out together?

Garry,
I can bring Hexhead manuals, DVD and JVB DVD. Do I need to bring a laptop?

Re: Tech Day???

Just got back from an overseas trip. Sorry but April 24 doesn't work for me. May 1 or 8 could work. Sounds like all of you have already settled on the 24th so go ahead and I'll try to make the next one. Great that it is going to happen either way. Thanks.

Dirk,

Mauro has the funnel and he and I have done a couple with the servo style, plus I have done many regular style. If you want to head down south we could probably arrange to help you out. Send us a PM.

Hi Guys
I would like to join in as well. Garry, I will bring your tools back from the clutch replacement job.
I have a 03 LT that I would like to change brake fluid on if anyone has the tools for that.
