Maintenance Day
Some of you may or may not know but now you will. I saw some interest for a Maintenance day here too. I'm not exactly Portland area but there are some nice riding roads to get here. Also, if you show up I can show you some roads if we have enough time. Anyway, maintenance day, my house, August 18th and 19th if needed. If the 19th isn't needed, we can do a group ride around the area. If you've never been out here, you need to come! Some of the best riding roads around with curves aplenty. I'm exit 16 off I-5 in WA, then about 10 miles east of the freeway. Maintenance day thread here in the Vancouver section for those that are interested.

Please read at least the first paragraph then post up a yay or nay so I can get a head count please. See you there!!

Forgot to mention, if you need to bring you bike in your truck or trailer, I have room for those also. Have a nice spot to unload bikes with a nice folding ramp if you need it rated at 1000 lbs. Cruisers, guys, girls, sport bikes, whatever ya got, bring it!

100 views and one response? It's a bike get together too....don't have to work on your bikes. Come on out and help the inexperienced riders learn how to turn their own wrenches!!

AWWW snap! Have to do another one then!

We will be setting up a 10x10 canopy in the driveway and also be using my garage in addition to the shop for tinkering on scooters. Keep everyone out of the sun!

Thanks! We will try and have another one this year before the weather gets crappy. If not, we'll do one next year.

Hey RedKat I can't make it this weekend, but the next time you do it, I'm interested! Do you have the ability to change the fork oil? It's never been done on my bike and I don't have the triple-tree lift... AND I have never done it, so I'd like to have someone with me who actually knew what he was doing. lol

Yes, I can do it. We'll need to completely remove the forks from the bike so they can be vertical when you fill them to check the level. I don't have a front stand but I do have a cherry picker we can support the front end with. It's how I do front wheel swaps and fork work on my bikes and it works well. I don't have a measuring device for the oil but I can make one in a jiffy if we need it.

Same here! Thanks again for hosting it. Next time I need to check valve clearances - just check, mind you, I don't want to screw around with reshimming, I'll have Dave do that.

Great ride too!
