Sun goes down over it. Wrong! Should rise over it! 😛

What Indicator / Tail tidy set up is that? looks very neat.


Not to speak for Cantaloop of course, but I believe that's the Däs Mototec bracket (with Kellermann blinkers), available from them direct or places like Officine08.

Another similar option is this one from Lightech, have it on mine and really like it.

Installed the new Brembo rotors. Fork seals leaking, so did them as well. What a palaver. I ejaculated expletives continuously. I'd forgotten how much I hate doing it. New dust seals wouldn't seat all the way. Eyeballing them, they looked identical. Nope! Arse!

As for the rotors? Fucking screws made of cheese! Arsey McArseface! I had to use heat and vice grips to get one out. The head was rounded like a very round thing! Yet another wouldn't torque without trying to get all rounded off. I'm going have to replace them all with screws made from hard stuff. I normally like cheese. Not Guzzi cheese, as it happens.

Grimeca rotors = 1211 grams
Brembo rotors = 1644 grams. But shiny, and no radial play.

Now sitting in front of the fire, drinking bourbon.

Looking good Mark. My 2014 have Allen head bolts-original. Hopefully easier to get off when that day comes.

Did it. Replaced the cheesy screws with socket head cap screws. Then I torqued up the axle nut, pinch bolts and triple clamp screws, and reinstalled the calipers.

Of course, there was drama. I don't want no drama, but there it was.

Pulled off the forks and took them and the new matris kit, and new fork seals to my suspension guy today. I sez, how much you recon, would like to bring you cash. 80 bucks, will have them ready tomorrow. I usually do my own work, but this was a no brainer.

Faarked it up. If I had a brain, I'd be dangerous.

You may recall I installed new brake rotors last weekend? Well, I sez to meself, "self, install new pads".

New pads arrived today. I installs them. Squeeze brake lever..hmmm..a bit squishy.

Bleed!

So I bleeds them. Now there's no pressure at the lever. Not a sausage.

Belsen & bebop! Mad

Have you bled at the master?

Try leaving the lever cable tied to the bar overnight, release it in the morning and hopefully the air will pop up into the reservoir.

Have you for a one way bleed valve?

Yeah, lever is cable tied to the bar.

No, I don't have a one-way bleeder.

I find that gently banging the lever maybe 2 times a second for a few minutes can vibrate bubbles out of the system through the hydraulic release port into the top reservoir.

Still no pressure at the lever. Sigh. I will have to get jiggy with it.

Fixed. There was a fuck-ton of air in there. I made bubbles galore. Eventually, it got stiff. The lever, I mean. Suspect

Just one.


My original wavy rotors are on Tony’s Sport. The right Grimeca I replaced was still serviceable. The left one, not so much.

Ergo, just one.

Ride!

Bedded the new pads on the new rotors. No frolicking unicorns or rainbows with the Brembo's, however.

Brakes:  Brakey [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Fork Seals: Sealy [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

GRiSO: Magnificent! cheers

Got around to checking upper sump gasket as 40k miles approaches & not done since new AFAIK, so took off exhaust (three out of four header studs come out with nuts Very Happy), side stand, etc and boringly found gasket was in perfect fettle........ Could probably have got away just putting it back with same gasket (only held firm on upper sump side) but relented and took ages removing/cleaning/scraping.  All back together (without new gasket on lower sump as that was perfect also), fresh oil & filter, bolts all covered in anti-galling gunk.....Basically all I achieved was to exercise all the bolts & fittings Wink

Rode into NYC for Dad's 91st B-day Sunday. Took a trip through the park today in a bit of drizzle.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
