Just to keep things a little straighter...

Huzband and I will host a tech day for those wanting to prepare for the fall riding season here in the south.

Please reply to this thread with the work you want to get done so we can plan accordingly. Huzband or I will send PMs with the location. We'll provide some water and coffee and we'll pass the hat for some BBQ later on in the day.

You guys got a tire air pressure gauge and a flashlight to check oil level?

That would be all the GT needs.

If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

Florida Keys for now
For my 2013, I hope to have most of the usual fluid changes, valve checks, etc, required for the 12k done prior to the tech day. I would like to synch the throttle bodies and flush the brake fluid on the 6th, and reset the service warning that has been yessing at me since December.
Thanks,
Bill

Well, that makes sense, you only need to maintain them when you ride them...

Ride?
What's that?
grin

Your right.

Should've been over 100k a while ago.

I did have to adjust one valve in the past 90,000 miles.
Still in spec but you know how it is.

I can bring a hammer if you need one.

I'll be there, what brand of coolant do I need? Which oil is best?? These new boxers are sooooo complicated! grin

Seriously, thanks Matt for setting this up. I'll probably come and just hang out.

I do have 2 or 3 slots left on a shared GS911 tool. Bernie will bring it if anyone is interested in getting their bike registered.
