How are you guys getting on with your "to do" lists?

I haven't managed to do a lot so far and it's already mid January.

Replaced oil, filter
Painted the frame
gave it a good clean and parked on thick cardboard to isolate tires from concrete
stripped down to solo

and that's about it for now....hardly skratching the surface.

custom handlebar is nowhere near done (not even started) and as for the rest of modifications, well I choose to spend my free time (what's that?!) to do designs for clients...

48h long days pretty please!

Done my rear fender   
Done my new tyre's    
Done my Service         
Done my Air Filter       

Got the old style fenders, Can't decide whether to cut them down to have a short Bobbery style going on, or have a paint job? No rush, Only January  Very Happy  I'll do my valve's when it's a bit warmer too  Very Happy

These are some nice projects... all I got planned is cleaning up some of the wiring I did back in December and convert my chain to belt drive (when the moron ships it... been waiting 14 days now) something about having the belt custom cut and they are back logged... pfft.

Thanks CC I'll be interested in reading that   It's a shame they don't do the conversion for more bikes, I'd be interested in doing that to the Bandit.

yeah they are pricy but if you do the math... in the long haul it winds up being cheaper....


Prices are average... per year

Chain $130
Front $25
Rear $60
Misc cleaning/lube products brings it up to approx. $200 per season (planning on riding a lot) maybe every other season for the whole system replace...

New belt every 20-30 000KM 150$
