Hi everyone! I would like to invite all those in the area to my house for a tech day Saturday, October 9. I live in Woodstock, IL and will be happy to even throw down some BBQ and drinks. This is open to Airheads and Oilheads as I have one of each. I will be working on the Oilhead myself, but if anyone wants to work on the Airhead... COOL! It is a '76 R90/6 that is taken down to frame as I am in the process of converting it to a cafe racer, complete with a Ducati super-sport fairing.
The Tech Stuff (I am NOT a mechanic but try to do all I can on my bike)
- I need to do all of the "Every 12K mile" stuff to my '00 R1100RT as well as replace the alternator belt.
- I have never done a valve adjustment myself so anyone with history on that would be great.
- Haynes manual in one hand, tools in another... Let's go at it!
For those who would like to work on their own bikes, I have 2 garage stalls, plus I will put up 2 - 10 x 10 tents in the driveway.
I would like to get a heads up on those attending so that I can plan for enough food.
Please respond here, PM me, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks everyone in advance, I hope this will be a lot of fun.
