Greetings from Ohio
Hello all, picked me up this amazing machine just this past Friday. Cosmetically she's rough and needs some love but mechanically she's sound as a pound and growling. What an amazing feeling/sounding machine, not regretting it in the least. Only 14k miles with a new set of Pirelli Angel GT's, and new brake pads!
I just stripped her down and fixed a host of wiring issues because the previous owner wasn't familiar with the concepts. (Such a mess and a couple of blown fuses) The previous owner put a custom kickstand on it because the original broke off so it requires a custom linkage. Well that broke on the ride home so I had to toe and heel the shift selector (bruised my heal bit) but I made it. Went this weekend to this awesome shop we have here, got parts, and made a custom linkage for it. The bead on my weld isn't pretty but it holds true.
Question, what's the best oil type? I usually run a synth blend to allow particulates to be carried away by the conventional but I'm curious what people use in this bike.
