OK, It was only 16 miles, but it was a great afternoon to be on 2 wheels. Anyone else so lucky? After a month and a half of work travel, and being under the weather, I'm smiling again! :)

that swingarm pivot is really stuck! I hit it with the 4lb sledge as hard as I could and the whole front end fell off. [laugh]

this warm weather scares me. the weather gods get angry when they see motorcycles out in chicago during the first week of Jan. I hope it doesn't come around to bite us in the @ss during the spring and summer.

I feel sorry for the shop that has to deal with taking my swingarm off!

I'm with you; I hope the spring and summer are good and won't be affected by this maddnes?.

So does 45º = a happy valve seat angle? ;D

Yes it does! An even happier angle is adding the second 60 deg angle the S and SPS models of my bike have according to the service manual.
