Putting the wrenches away for awhile

Post by JohnUSA » Sun Sep 01, 2019 10:31 am



Father's Day was Day Zero for me and this trike. Recapping the work since then:

Installed new 6 degree rake kit
Rebuilt front shocks
Installed new rear shock
Installed new front brakes
Inspected rear brakes
Replace filters: air, sub, cruise and fuel
Replace cam belts
Oil filter and oil change
New coolant
New front shock oil
Rebuild petcock
Installed corner LED driving lights, to provide a bigger visual for the cage drivers
Discovered a disconnected "Back Off" brake module, and reconnected it
Added LED lights for fairing reflector/marker
New Venom front tire
Rear tires fresh, replaced last year
Flushed front brake calipers
Took a guitar wire and poked out the return hole in clutch master cylinder
New clutch lever bushing
Installed shift shaft support bracket
Installed rear speakers, rear speaker harness.
Speaker fader should be here next week. They shipped it via Siberia dog sled route.

I'm not having any clutch issues, so I elected to stay out of flushing/bleeding clutch, at least for now. Same with rear brake cylinders. Brakes are good, it stops well, and the brake cylinders are clean and dry without leaks. Can dig into in the off season.

On the short list is a headlight modulator, potentially with LED headlight, but I've not investigated enough yet to know the right combination.

So, I think I've pretty much got it sorted it out, confident that it's more road worthy now.

Wow! With all the work you did, you might have been better off
if you just jacked up the gas cap and put a new bike under it. :lol: :lol: :lol:
