Well I had all this in a notebook that I kept in the tail, but due to my all weather riding habbits....it's no longer a book, but just pieces and pages.

This is just something to keep track of my maintenance schedule, mods, add-ons and other highs and lows. If anyone sees something I've missed or have suggestions or comments please let me know.

I got the bike from a dealer in WI (Vetesnik Power Sports) on April 17, 2010.

VIN- M301473 with 3391 miles on the clock.

The mods that were on the bike were an undertail, slip-ons and smaller marker/signal lights.

I only have my notes from Feburay 16, 2011 to present. I'll try to fill in the blanks that I can.

But heres what she looked like when I got her.

I went down some time July 2010. Buddy of mine low sided on his 1k rr, I checked up, hit the brakes and drove her strait into the ditch. Yes I know n00b move :( Over all we were both ok, and cosmic damage to the bikes...shattered wind screen, cracked upper, inner and right fairing plus missing the clutch cup and mirrors. It took me till Oct to get her back on the road but she wasn’t prettiest. But this time she had a Hotbodies under tail.
In December and 7728 on the ODO, I brought her for repairs and mods.

If you would like an electronic means to keep tabs on your bike (oil changes and such), I use http://www.mileagetracker.org/

I use it often myself. It is not mine, although I know the guy who created it, but it is free to use.
Thanks man, I'll check it out.

well about 6hours, a thumb nail and a hair dryer and i got about 95% of my decals off.
Im hoping to get the rest done and start preping for paint on Thrs.

Has anyone used Plastex to fix cracks in fairings? Ive used it alittle on small stuff and it worked good. Im just unsure for the big ones

Thanx

Well last night I was finally able get out and spend some time on the bike.

I'm just pass the 16k mark on the ODO, checked the valve lash...all is good. Only one valve .001" off perfect but still well with in spec.

Also,

Cleaned up the wiring in the tail and make a place to mount a PC3 and speed-o healer, when I get them. I think it turned out really good.







I still need to wire up the connectors for the undertail.
