  1. @saddlebum I believe the pin-stripper's name you were thinking of was Jay-Bird that was at Maintenance Day in Ohio and at a NY rally a few years ago.
  2. Left arm still a little sore and was slightly dizzy for day and half also slight loss of balance also!!
  3. Also belated birthday Carl!!!!!!!!! Didn't get notice as we were camping!
  4. Phantom and I got our second shot of Pfizer yesterday. she had no problems with either shot. I barely felt first needle and just had the feeling of it for a few days. This second shot feels like someone punched me in the arm every time I move it but not anything else. Guy up the street said his friend broke out all over with painful rash for 4 days. Couldn't even wear a shirt. He could wear a light shirt after 5 days and is better now.
  5. Got to put on a couple hundred klm's before our camping trip so tires are broken in and ready for longer trips.
  6. Just got back from Tobbermory from camping last 3 nights. Have to get vaccinated tomorrow then Walmart employees have 20% off so we are barbeque shopping so won't be able.
  7. Won't be able to go next week as Phantom and I will be camping(her first time in the Time Out trailer) in the Bruce Peninsula.Leaving Mon. morning then coming home Thurs. Fri. will be getting our second vaccine.
  8. Just finished cleaning crap off rear rim,driveshaft and left hub. Installed and shimmed saddlebag guards and bags. Now waiting for rain to stop(probably tomorrow) so I can break-in tires. Been off tooo long!!!!
  9. Just got bike back from shop today. New front & rear tires, rear brake rotor & brake pads also new steering head bearings(old bearings had 110,00klms)( rep. was shocked I hadn't replaced bearings before this). Had to replace right side exhaust as muffler broke off from Y pipe(bought used pipes from guy in Brantford Ont. $500)So when all said and done parts and labor were around $2000Can. Now have to put on bags etc. so I can ride again.
  10. dropped pipe off and all gaskets and bearings are ordered.
  11. Just picked up right side exhaust from guy in Brantford Ontario for $500can. Waiting for shop to call back so I can drop it off. They have ordered gaskets to change and bearings for steering head.
  12. Still have to see how bad exhaust pipe is as the shop has been closed since Thursday(they didn't mention when on phone) so replacement is between BOTH sides from Florida(Fallen Cycle) for around $500U.S. or Brantford Ontario right side for $500Canadian. Guy owns Royal Star Venture but don't think he is member(name Raf v). Still have to also check to see if pipe is repairable.
  13. @MarcarlNot sure which web site you checked but the 3 that I looked at had the part # 4XY-14730-10-00 right(my side) and 4XY-14730-00-00for left side. Price was from $700U.S. to $850U.S. Bike update: Starting to piss me off(excuse my french) because I asked them to go ahead with replacing rear tire and I figured they would call me to pick up Wednesday BUT NO they didn't contact me at all OR tell me they would be closed until Monday. Thought they might at-least tell me this so I could find exhaust to finish bike for now. Website said they were open Friday and Saturday but not when I phoned! So now have to wait till Monday. Not sure now whether to get both sides of exhaust from Recycle in Florida($400U.S.) and wait for shipping or the guy in Brantford ($500Can.) But still waiting for shop to get back to me about their searches.

  15. A guy from Brantford Ontario says he has whole right side and I can have it for $500Can.But I want to check out the pipe before I commit as shop didn't contact me Wednesday so I could pick up bike. They were closed yesterday and today so I have to wait to see if they open tomorrow.
