I put these up on the FB group last week, but failed to put them here...so here we go. Bob took better pics (I'm borrowing two, lol). From the "Impromptu Tech Day" held at "Intech" Bob's garage April 19th. Bob and I did a valve check on our bikes while Jay, the non-Wineberry FJR in the garage, fixed some vacuum leaks and rid himself of the PAIR system. We had intended to replace the CCTs in our bikes with the updated version (Bob's bike has 75k and mine 65k miles), but got tired of trying to sort out how to wiggle the CCT out and back into the incredibly small space it occupies beside the frame.
A pretty good turnout and a lot of fun. I was the last out of there at around 8:30pm thanks to some misadventures with my fuel tank. We had already delayed reassembly of my bike a bit to let the RTV that was holding in my new valve cover gasket to set up (the old gasket fought us too much while trying to wiggle the cover back in place, so we said f it and used a new one). Once things were closed up and coolant refilled, we did a leak check with the fuel tank sitting on a stool to the side of the bike (pretty standard stuff). We then proceeded to hook up a Carbtune to do a TBS...during the hookup, Bob accidentally tapped the tank and it fell from its perch. With speed found only with freaks, Bob dove and caught my tank a mere inches from crashing into the concrete floor, smashing his knee and finger in the process. I was on the other side and rushed around to help...the tank was 3/4 full of course. Tank saved; however, during the fall, it pulled out the fuel level sensor wire from the back off its connector plug...everything else looked okay. Bob spent the next hour and a half salvaging/soldering/fixing my plug and saved the day. TBS was perfect already as it turned out, ha. Got everything buttoned up, did a final check, and headed home, 186 miles away. Despite the trouble at the end, this tech day was a blast!
