Glad to help, that's why we're all here. I've had many problems this year alone as I've done over 11,000 miles this year. New chain/sprocket, brakes, tires, clutch, cable and nearly destroyed my bike over a stuck thermostat.
11,000 miles is a great riding year! Glad to hear you caught the overheat in time. Running as cool as they typically do, did this problem show itself pretty quickly?
When changing swing arm bolt direction, aside from wheel off the ground, does everything else remain intact? E.g. just drive out the unloaded swing arm bolt, reverse, lube, and reinstall / re-torque? That seems pretty straightforward.
I turned the fuel light on for the first time today. I filled up about 5 miles later, it took 3.7xx gal. So I wondered if the last 1.2 gallons is usable, and the light means maybe.. 40 miles max. Or what amount remains as ďusableĒ gas. Have you experimented with pushing the fuel light. Not that I am a fan of low fuel levels. (No need to tempt the fuel filter gods), but more in terms of ďlight comes on in an unknown land- how far before Iím stranded?Ē It seems many go by the 120 and fill up method, but again, this is really for emergency knowledge...
Thanks for any insight.
...11,000 miles. Jealous, in a very happy for you, way. <thumbs up>
