I did a little clean-up subsequent to some work during the week, and adjusted the clutch cable and lubed the cable end sockets, then started packing a bag for a few days in the coast range mountains and on the coast, including time at a shooting range (taking just the .45). One last shot before the weather turns.
I also cleaned-out the tool case I take with me out of town just to be sure I have the right tools with me although hopefully won't need them. Then I made a carry-case for the belt tension gauge from a short length of 1.5 x 1.5-inch nice wood, so now I can carry it inside the tool case and the other tools won't beat it up.
Drove the cage today so I could take my newly aquirred stock header pipe to a muffler shop to buy a tip for it. They were NO help. Said they don't do motorcycle pipe and advised I should go to the custom motorcycle shop down the street. Yeah, that would work if I wanted to spend lots of money. I guess I will order a tip from an online parts company.
Ha! Story of my life, took it out of the garage, washed and dried and then put her back !
That's the weather for the UK!!!
Sometimes I just think.....**** it! If it gets dirty, it will clean! But then I think......**** it, can't be arsed! Wind, rain and crap, sometimes I wonder why I bother!!!
What changes or improvements would you want made to the warrior if they were to bring it back? I know half of the fun is making it your own but was just curious to see what others thought besides the obvious of holding more fuel :p
Haven't been around much lately but thought I would pop in and say hi.
Also just found out Ivan is doing his yearly flash sale until Christmas Eve, link below then scroll down for Warrior specific flash info..
