i'm extremely pleased to announce that after months of storage, a drive spline lubing, and a complete stator replacement, 'for great justice' is back on the road! i've put about 60 miles on the bike so far and my voltmeter was reading right between 14-14.5v on the highway, so it looks like the battery is getting juice... and no oil or coolant leaks as far as i can tell. i'm going to ride another couple hundred miles locally and then i'm going to celebrate the success. how am i going to celebrate you wonder?
cross country road trip! if everything checks out after the break-in miles i'm going to ride from boston to san francisco and then back. i expect to be gone about six weeks (after hanging with friends in austin, denver, and san francisco). i'm pretty excited... need to get out of boston for a while. i'm tentatively going to head west next thursday or friday.
fingers are crossed that no problems turn up. knock on wood for me.
also... would just like to thank everyone involved with this forum... really appreciate all the help i've gotten here. also would like to specifically thank fergy for his great spline lube write-up. thanks guys!
