Not a damned thing...we got 6" of snow, it was 11 degrees outside, and I'm on the other side of the country in 70 degree weather. It's like I died and skipped purgatory...

coing from someone who was born and raised in baltimore and is currently transplanted in northern california all of 2 hours away from Lake Tahoe i can tell you, our heatwave isnt all that fun. i want to be snowboarding!

winter in baltimore = get work done on the rides!

EDIT: when I closed this window and opened my email my shipping confirmation for my helmet showed up and its apparently being delivered tomorrow!

Just performed the difficult install of an Icon reservoir sock As far as real updates I added a set of Arrow mirrors and have some Chinese levers on the way. I'll do a review of them when they come in.

Planning my install of the Street Triple R rear shock on my standard Street Triple.

Gotta figure out a way to relieve the tension on the rear shock in order to do the install. I don't have a way to hoist it up so I'm brainstorming. Might have to take it to a local shop.

Jaconrad, the R shock is night and day better than the stock. But make sure the shock will fit between models. The swingarm has a different mount on 13+ but the shocks may still interchange. Also my highest recommendations is to add a FLUX I or II plate. Take as much as the high rise rate out as possible, give a more linear feel (unless youre doing a lot of 2 up riding).

But for a "hoist" or holding system. Take your bike, put it on a center stand. Take your car jack ( bottle type jack or similar style works best) and put it on top of the tire and under the license plate mount. Raise the jack to add tension and then disassemble...

Its how I hold the rear up to change my rear shocks, linkage, or springs, etc.

When I swapped my rear shock, I put my bike up on the swing arm stand and put some small jack stands under the rider foot peg mounts and lowered the bike off the swing arm stand and onto the jack stands to relieve the pressure off the rear. There are also no issues with doing it the way mcarnold suggested either.

Great idea on the lift, but I don't have a center stand unfortunately. I could theoretically use my rear stand and then put the car jack on the tire, correct?

As for the shock, I got a 2013-2014 Street Triple R shock, so it should (fingers crossed) be a direct swap into my 2013 Street Triple.

Thanks for the help!
