A pat on the back for a job well done


I did a valve check and adjustment, put in new oil, new coolant, synched the carbs, and had a good moto weekend even though I didn't ride much.

Just virtually patting myself on the back.



Thanks to CT for the garage and help.

Which brings us to the second very basic and low level lesson, don't give up on the bike and if you find yourself too hot in a corner keep turning the bike and most likely you will make it. You owe it to yourself to at least try to make it rather than panic and give up like a bitch which is what usually happens.--

I believe that picture was torquing down the 20 bolts on the camshaft cover. I was standing up and bending over to finger tighten them, then I started at 60% of final torque and the bolts I would tighten (in order, or course) would make all the others go loose (since it pushed the camshaft in and compressed a few valve springs).

I figured if I was going to be fighting screws for the next 10 minutes, I might as well sit down. Of course it went much quicker than I had expected.

BFH? I assume that is a hammer. A big one.
