A gift from a coworker who's wife wanted her gone. Sitting/rusting for 10 years, 24k miles.
I have been working on her for a couple months and finally got the title today! I have her running well and put her in my name today (finally!)
I have been learning as I go, here is what is done so far...
Replaced fork seals and oil
Changed Engine Oil
New Brake Pads rear and service all around.
Bleed front and rear brakes
Bleed / cleaned clutch
New , Less Rusty Tank Cleaned/ Derusted Tank (Acid Treatment)
Changed Airbox filter
Fixed Shifting issue, Grind Kickstand
Cleaned and repaired Fuel Sender
New Fuel Hoses
Fixed Right Mirror
Replaced Left Mirror
Repaired Alternator/ Replaced regulator
Replaced Spark Plugs
I will get the valves checked this weekend which is basically the last mechanical issue. Put this off due to potential cost for tool and shims.
Including the registration I am in for $346 and the valves have a potential $200 cost though I am crossing my fingers.
Super fun bike to ride! I have a 09' BMW GSA 1200 and classic 74' R90/6 and I need to let one go soon for space/wife considerations.
Not sure which one is going to go.
I hope you add tires to that list..after 10 years I think they’d be suspect. Great bike!
