One thing about the GRiSO if I may say it, the most sexy, civilized bike as far as looks go. But some days, particularly with the 1200 motor I have and it's current state of tune, it's amazing that I even still have the license to operate the bad bitch.....good God my brothers.

Jon,
A 2014 just like mine was traded in here in Savannah, GA about a month ago. It had something like 6k miles on it and was for sale for $8,000. It sold pretty quickly to someone in Atlanta I was told. I suspect it went for asking price or close. It looked completely stock, no farkles……

A new pair of shoes for GRiSO; changed out the OEM Metzlers for Pirelli Rosso IVs. OMgiddyG - the danger is that these Rossos let me think I'm a better rider than I really am. Those Metzlers were junk.

I have Metzlers on the Shitter. They came with it. I can't wait for them to wear out. They're horrible!

I've been running and liking the Pirelli Angel GT 2's for road and occasional track. They lasted a solid 12k miles.
Now I'm hearing good things about Michelin's new Road 6's
Any reviews on them here?

I use Pirelli Angel GTs. I had Pirelli Angel GSs before but they wore out too quickly for my liking. The GTs have a harder rubber along the centre line but still hold very well as far as I am concerned.

New seat for the shitter was collected today. Haven't ridden with it, busted ribs somewhat preclude that, but I sat on it and it feels like a seat!

Pics later.

Fuck fuck fick fuck arse biscuits.  Dropped mine today.  I have a awkward exit from my garage onto a steep hill and the front end slid out. Scratched the valvole cover,  both the black andd silver bits, scratched the ball end of the front brake lever, scratched the rear footpeg
, and bar end .Bruisedmy foot. Passing biker helped me lift it. Thanks mate.
The GRiSO had neverbeen down beforeand its 20 yearssinceI last Dropped a bike, my cbx 750 when I forgot the disk lock. So nothing too bad. Probablydropedthevalueofthebike by £1000.

I have a brand new RH side valve cover if interested? I dropped my bike in a low speed low side, scuffed the valve cover and other bits, however, the cover I bought is for the newer engine and doesn't fit mine.

This weekend,

Changed oil, filter, transmission and gearbox oil, rear brake pads and having new front tyre fitted tomorrow. Rounded off a fork pinch bolt (almost every bolt on the GRiSO is made of toffee), ordered some news ones to put on when wheel goes back on tomorrow.

In Oz, at least where I live, we don't have problems with the fasteners per se. They get mangled by shit tools and the like but they don't seize and fuck up. Is it the salt on winter roads?

With the rear brake don't forget when you put the new pads in to pull the caliper off it's sliding pins and grease them up. If you don't they'll seize up in a trice and then things become awkward and expensive!

I dont ride once the salt is on the roads on the UK, but im guessing its a function of British weather.

Regarding the sliding pins, are you referring to the pin that retains the pads?

I'm biting the bullet and selling it. Arthritis and big bikes don't mix-I can only do 30 miles before it gets too painful. Very sad, as I thought it was a keeper. Now looking for a V7.

Nah. It's a floating caliper. The pistons work on me pad which pushes on the disc and the caliper itself slides on pins away from the disc forcing the inboard pad against the other side of the disc. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

To keep it working the pins the caliper moves on have to be free to move. They are sealed, not very effectively, by rubber boots and are usually assembled with minimal grease on the pins. Obviously on a brake you don't want huge gobs of grease floating about but at the same time the caliper must be kept free on the pins so it can function. When the pads are out the caliper can be pulled off the pins, the pins cleaned up and they can be lubricated with some marine grease. On reassembly any excess should be wiped off before the pads are reinstalled and the caliper and it's mount remounted on the bevelbox.

I fell over a cat grave in the front yard and went arse over tit! Utter stupidity! Rolling Eyes All our ex-felines are buried there and their graves are marked by small brick monuments, (That also stop foxes digging them up!). Doofus comes home, hops out of the car, kicks a brick and injures his ancient self horribly.

There are no Purple Hearts for self inflicted wounds! It is excruciating though.....

Sesanka, my quack, is a Sri Lankan import. Nothing I do surprises him. He jaut shakes his head, rolls his eyes and quietly lectures me.

Poor bastard...... Rolling Eyes

Top GP. Very thorough. I have a lot of time for him and I'm very cynical about doctors because my dad was one! Laughing
