I've always wondered if there was maybe a UV resistant matte or satin clear that might help keep non-wear/touch items' ano from fading. I suppose getting your old blocks re-ano'd in a hard coat might be viable too

I was thinking about it, until I saw the new blocks are only $14 shipped for the pair.

Not throwing away the old ones, though.

Somehow, the steering damper came loose.

Took off the bars to tighten it up. Got it all back together and the throttle was sticky. WTF?

Took apart the throttle and found strange wear.



I think the culprit is this nubby. Fits into a hole on the OEM bar. No hole on my bar. Not sure why it was working fine before. Polished up the damaged bar and throttle tube.



Grinded off the nubby, and adjusted the cable to free up the throttle tube. Threw on some new grips while I was at it. Ran out of time. Will put on the bash bars tomorrow. Need to re-adjust the bar, too. Couldn't see shit in my mirrors today.

Got the PolarGel Cooling Vest today, in time to chill it down before work.

It needs to be colder and last longer, although I'm only using 75% of the cooling power. The Leatt collar would press on the upper back cooling pad, so I left it out.

Gonna mess around with it some more. Good for a short trip. Once the ice packs warm up they need to come off. They don't breathe and they block ventilation in the jacket.

Bash bars and handguards on.

Bike is looking and running strong.



Still needs a few things.

Found a good price on Amazon for Castrol Power 1 (10-40).

Got a 6-pack with free shipping. Probably cheaper than I could buy locally.

Having some seroius medical shit going on, so I'm stressed out and not sleeping well.

Last night after work, walked out to the bike and couldn't find my key.

Looked high & low everywhere and found nothing. Had to call a cab to get home.

Found the spare key (holy miracle) and cabbed it back to bring my baby home.

Wish it was that easy, but was pretty much up all night fixing my stupidity. If I have a bad day at work today-- someone might end up dead (hopefully not me).

Bad news is, I probably left the key in the bike. Good news is, I always put a lock on the rear wheel.

Will be ordering a new ignition. Glad I haven't cut those spare keys, yet.

Real good news is, the throttle is like a precision instrument after modding/fixing! (I thought it was pretty good when it was fucked.)
