2019/12/15 @ odo 6868mi Replaced leaking right side fork tube with a used '06 GSXR 600 tube I got on ebay. I accidentally ordered '05 seals instead of '06 and they didn't fit, so I re-used the seal already on the replacement. No more leaking! Also changed out the oil in both forks and set preload and damping settings to stock.

I got help from Dieter at Moto Guild.

2019-12-28 Stolen & Recovered Taken some time Sunday 9am-noon from JLAC in Oakland. Recovered unharmed later that day at around 7pm about 1.5 miles west along 3rd. The perpetrator apparently walked the bike there. Police said they located it via LoJack, which was a surprise to me. I never saw a LoJack on it. Good job OPD.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like it's a one time fee.

Interesting, LoJack is subscription based isn't it? You aren't paying a subscription, I'm not paying, I suspect Victor and FreeRyde aren't either. Does LoJack still work for police? I might just have to buy LoJack for my current bikes.

2020-02-02 odo ~7000: Oil/filter change & Installed new battery

from O'Reilly Auto Parts: Super Start Power Sport Battery BTX12 AGM

Group Size (BCI): BTX12; Cold Cranking Amps (CCA): 180 CCA; Voltage (V): 12 Volt; Length (In): 5-7/8 Inch; Width (In): 3-7/16 Inch; Height (In): 5-1/8 Inch; The Power Sports AGM Battery was designed for more than performance; it was designed for the enthusiast. Completely spillproof and leakproof; frequent replacement and high maintenance are over! The absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology increases power while improving rider and environmental safety. The key to this technology is the highly porous microfiber separators which completely absorb and trap the electrolyte. Molded top and side connection terminals provide versatility, increased strength and durability.

2020-04-06 ODO: 7650 mi -- Front brake pads replaced.

The left side showed more wear than the right side.

Left Side:


Right Side:




Also, since getting a brand new battery the bike is still low on starting juice if I don't ride it for a couple of days without a trickle charger. I don't think this is normal.

2020-04-14 ODO: 7700 mi -- Rear brake pads replaced.

Regarding the battery, measure the current whith everything turned off and key removed. Don't turn anything on while the meter is connected or you may destroy it.

Hey Tom really you can't see the photos? How about in other posts on this thread. Can you see any of those?

I see them fine here but they are Google Photos links so they could possibly have some kind of privacy settings on them.

Yeah I'll do that with the battery.

BTW for anyone interested, I figured out how to post photos here directly from Google Photos links.
(1) create a public album
(2) go to that album in Google Photos, select the photo you want to post. Don't use the link function in the app. Click on the photo to see it enlarged, and use your browser's "copy-image-link" function. The link will be really long and look something like
Code:

(note that the image size can be set in the url using "w={width}-h={height}")

That's it. You can tell if it worked by looking at your post (or a preview of it) in incognito mode.

2020-08-20 (odo 8875) -- Replaced Both Fork Seals

I tried doing this last December when I replaced one of the fork tubes but I accidentally bought '05 GSXR 600/750 seals instead of '06, which is what Shitbike has. So I ended up putting it all back together with the old seals. Within a couple of months both forks were leaking again. The oil leaked onto my front brakes and tire so I knew I'd have to do it again.

This time I got the correct '06 GSXR fork seals (41mm) and replaced them at Moto Guild. I found this video very helpful. It took almost 5 hours but I think I could do it in 3 now. Thanks to Alex for sticking around an hour after they closed so I could finish.

Total cost for seals, fork oil, and shop time: $180




haha finally figured out how to add google photos.

TODO:
* give the brake pads a good cleaning. They still have fork oil on them. And bleed the brakes.
* Left-side handlebar controls need replacing. Particularly the horn button only occasionally works.
* chain oiler stopped working. either fix or remove.
* replace tires. front first.
* Fix headlight electronics. High beam not working.
* replace front seat cover. The rips have gotten big.
* replace throttle cables with longer set.

I don't think you can clean oily brake pads. My experience has been you need to replace them.
