Went for a ride down to the local SCA for some of catrols finest, Tried out the Quick drain I fitted last change. As I have to remove the skid plate it dosn't really save much time but avoids on the possibility of stripping the drain plug. In went the 5w40 synthetic and she's all ready for the next 12 months.

Today I swapped my gearing back to a 17/45 - almost equivalent to running a 16 on the front with the stock 43 on the rear and then went out for a 50mile spin.

Despite having tried 17,18 & 19 on the front paired with either a 43 or 45 rear on the rear, this is the one combination that always brings out my widest grin.

Took off my reflectors using Liquid Wrench to dissolve the glue. It was a snap. Took abut 10 minutes to remove all the reflectors.

I, too, run 17/45. I have also run 17, 18 and 19. I completely agree that 17/45 is the best.

That looks like a CBR600F3 wheel. Am I right? I have one of those on the way here. What front end are you going with?

Rode it

Rode mine to a small show in Mobile AL. Mobile Bay Vintage MC had their show outside Fort Conde. Several nice old machines. Here are most of the Triumphs.

Yep...technically, its a F2 wheel, but what's 1/2" of wheel width between friends? I'll be going with a F3 front end and an Acewell gauge.
