Oil Change

Leaving Saturday morning on a week long bike trip. Put the rack on and washed the 9er last night. Got to change the oil/filter tonight since tomorrow night is pack clothes night. My buddy from Atlanta is headed up Friday morning.

Not looking forward to an oil change at 100 degrees outside today. It's friggin' hot. The annual Street Rod Nationals are in Louisville this weekend. Hot rods broken down all over town. Did I say it's friggin' hot?

The plus side. I don't think it will take long to warm the 9er up.

Thanks, I hope to. I've been doing annual one or two week trips with this guy for 20+ years now. We have a system down. Don't bitch, do whatever, go wherever, but the main thing is have a good time whilst there and enroute. It's worked so far, so I expect the same this trip.

I heard that Rotella was actually the oil from under really fat inmates man-boobs gently squeezed into containers and then refined with a touch of hair grease.

But I may be wrong.

Also I read a K&N filter will add 10mph to your top speed and decrease fuel consumption by 5% due to the nut on the front of it improving the aerodynamics of the bike.

And doing a burnout to remove 90% of the tread from your rear tyre reduces unsprung weight and improves the bikes handling.

Don't do what I did many years ago on a Kawasaki.

The night before a trip I decided to do a oil change - and stripped the drain bolt thread! Result - ended up dropping the sump to helicoil it the next morning!

Pissed me off no end as I always used a torque wrench on that bike too!

Your not kidding about the rods being broken down. My uncle takes his 3 cars over there every year. Just about every year something on one of his cars breaks. Last year was an oil pump on his '34. The year before his '32 started sputtering badly due to a bad ignition module.

I thought about going down this year, but Saturday is our anniversary so it's shot. Sunday is wrap up day so not worth going.

Have a fun, safe trip.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Anything wrong with a fram oil filter? I've used them for years on my cars and motorcycles. No issues ever. Thanks!

I have never had a problem with them. Some folks do and the mere hint that you use a Fram incites a riot, I think due to having cardboard encaps.

Me, I'm a cheap bastard and use WalMart Supertech filters, but I change the oil every 2-3K miles.

This site has some info and talks about the issues with Fram, as well as a letter from Fram telling why their filters are OK.

I don't know anyone thats ever had their engine damaged by a bad Fram filter, but try to go on the best info I can find and still be a cheap bastard

Touchdown.

Toasted the rear tire on the Beemer. 100 degree heat + loaded with tri-cases + all backroads + slightly worn tire to start with = tire change on the road. Had to change a headlight on the run also. Factory GPS unit was intermittent. Rubber bumper came off one of the luggage cases. A little WD-40 and a good push and it went right back in the hole (insert gross remark here).

The 9er, on the other hand, performed great. Front tire is toast, forks need a rebuild, and I think I have either steering head or wheel bearing(s) going out, or both. Considering all I've done is chain and spockets I guess it's due. 34,400 miles. Probably check the brakes this winter also.

I'll wash it and put it up to rest for awhile.

As far as the trip, holy backroads. Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee have some great ones.

I'll post up some pics and some blurbs later after some bike work. Unless I'm snoozing.

New River Gorge Bridge. It's set some records. This is looking at it from the original bridge.



Up top from the observation deck. In October they close the southbound lanes and folks base jump off the bridge. You can fit one Lincoln Monument and two Statue of Libertys and still have room to spare to the bottom of the arch.



Another view with some nice rapids in the river. That's a semi crossing the bridge.



National Radio Telescope Obsovatory with the Big Daddy looking up. 2 degree lat and long dead zone for radio transmissions. You can take a tour and walk right up to the scope. No electonic devices allowed, and all vehicles behind the gates are diesel since spark plugs interfere with reception.




Another shot. There's seven telescopes here total. Some are remote controlled from universities.




Big Bend tunnel sign with the legend of John Henry.



Bikes at the John Henry statue.



The new tunnel is on the left, and the original tunnel is on the right. One mile straight thru rock built in the 1870s.




Found out that Chuck Yeager is from Hamlin, WV. This is his statue in front of his high school.

Bump. Guess my choice of title, or that nobody likes Chuck Yeager, killed my thread.

Yeah, great pics and a trip report probably deserved a new thread

The New River Gorge pictures are awesome. And I would love to see one of those telescopes up close in person. But aside from the picture descriptions, you didn't have much to say about the trip itself - how was it? Looks like it was a one of those head-clearing trips. I'm overdue for one.

Really nice pics Jim. I live close enough to WV that I need to go and do some exploring there. The semi on the bridge really puts the size of that thing in perspective.

Yeah, you should always change the oil when it's warm, runs out much faster and drains more completely than colder, thicker oil.
