Oil Change etc.
« on: July 04, 2021, 06:37:54 PM »
I have had a somewhat pleasant afternoon stripping all the plastic off and doing an oil and filter change on my 1300. Although I have had the bike since January, I have only ridden it three times, including the trip to bring it home. (Bloody council stuffing up the 30 Kms of dirt between me and the black stuff.) So this is a bit of a 'getting to know it' job, and I have taken off way more than I need to.
THERE ARE OLD RIDERS, AND THERE ARE BOLD RIDERS, BUT THERE ARE DAMN FEW OLD AND BOLD RIDERS.

Keep the dirty side down.

2003 ST 1300
1984 1200 Goldwing
1981 GL 500 Silverwing
1980 CX500
(Not all bikes are running at the current time)

All back together, and no spare parts! Those sheets for bolts and clips sure helped.
