Looks like it is time for a tech session, so get your farkles and service parts ready. I talked with Raffy and came up with Nov 13th for the next tech session. If you plan to have work done on your bike please post what you need done, or if you are just observing/helping out. We will make this tech session conditional on weather.

Thanks Rob for hosting a session.

The projects are on Wolfgang:

One more ride instead.

Friday, November 11th is a Federal holiday, Veteran's Day. We have a ride planned over the three day weekend into the Trinity range up north. Hoping the weather holds up for one more overnighter before the long winter's nap. :sleep:

See you next time. :bmw:

Tech sessions start at 9am, we usually have a couple LT's stripped and our adding farkles or doing a service. You can work on your bike, help others or just watch. We usually have approximately 15 bikes show up and help work on about 6 bikes at once. This is just a bunch of riders who have enjoyed getting together and adding toys to our bikes. Lunch consists of homemade chili with corn bread, and usually other treats from other riders. Soda and water will be provided if you want something else feel free to bring it.

Provided I can get over the mountains from Reno, I would be planning on checking valve clearances and learning how to do a valve adjustment.

I need to take care of a few things:

  1. Move XM radio to a BMR Co-Pilot with GPS
  2. Install a BlueSea fuse box,
  3. Troubleshoot ground problem (maybe fixed when fuse box is installed),
  4. Replace wind deflectors (ones I have are sort of yellowed),
  5. Get PIAA's to work again (ground problem?),
  6. Change oil (if time or energy left)

I'm in :D

I heard there might be a few more R bikes also.....

I've got a few lighting modifications to play with along with the power for an Street pilot and BMR shelf to install. Plus I may change the plugs.
This is all subject to my being able to wait for the 13th. Either way I should have time to help work on the other projects going on.

Maybe its just me but ..Oil changes at these Tech Sessions seems like it would be a pain in the azz..what are you going to do with the old oil? take it with you..have Rob dump it for you?...seems like having the dealer do it for a few bucks or you doing it yourself at home (not me) may save a lot of headaches. again this is just me.

i don't know how these things work, but if it's not too late i'd love help with 24k service, including checking valve lash and replacing fuel filter. valves should be okay as they were adjusted at 12k, but i've never replaced the fuel filter.
