The tires were recommended by a fell Vulcan lover and the price is right.. Any issues?
The brakes seem fine.. Would love to save money on them if it doesn't mean im being cheap... Thoughts?
Front brakes pads thickness specs are 4.85 mm (0.191 in)
WEAR LIMIT = 1.0 mm (0.039 in)
Estimate thickness while still mounted on bike. If it is close to the wear limit you may want to remove one set for a closer measurement.
If needed, the EBC organic pads seem to be a good choice.
Final Drive oil.. I'm thinking the good stuff.. Not sure if its ever been done... thoughts?
Mobil Synthetic is good stuff, at 30k miles your bike is due for a change, go with it.
Clymer manual maintenance schedule has final drive oil change listed for every 24K miles.
Im pretty comfortable with the plugs and wires. I got that information righto out of the Verses.. Is there any benefit to going with a 8mm spark plug cable? And will I need a gapper for the plugs or are they normally pre gapped?
IMHO there is no need to go to 8 mm plug cables. It just makes installing them more difficult and time consuming. The 7 mm wires are sufficient.
On the metric DPR7EIX-9 plugs, the final digit, 9, indicates the plug is pre-gapped to approximately 0.9mm (0.036 in)
However it is always a good thing to have a gapping tool to check the plugs.
I did lean towards cheap motor oil and a cheap filter because I plan on changing it more often than normal to begin with so that I can get it all cleaned up.
X2 on KM`s recommendation for Supertech filters. (#7317 I believe)
The Bosch filter is a premium filter at a premium price.
Purolator Pure One is it`s equal at a lower price, if you can find one.
If you are REALLY INTERESTED in learning about oil filters, read this link.
Also- It appears sea foam is a great way to go for now? To get everything cleaned up. It appears I can get some off ebay for about 20bux...
So there you have it. I don't want to be cheap but I do want to get as much done as possible.
Also- I know I have to lube the spines and change the battery out. Those will be done next month if money works itself out.
Anything I am missing? Any thoughts on how to save a buck and still get everything accomplished?
