  2. Removed the rear wheel to fully clean & grease the rear sliding caliper then bled it again as I think its been dragging very slightly, took it out for a quick ride to the seaside although it was a bit too hot, not something we get to say very often.
    Still love the bike even if I don't ride it that much compared with the Thruxton, it does encourage me to ride a bit more like a hooligan though:devil:

  8. All the parts for the Steffytona engine rebuild have been bought and paid for this week. Fek me, my poor bank account is now looking very sorry for itself.

    MyTim's got rid of a load of crap, erm, I mean unwanted parts from the garage so there's now more space to start putting it all back together. Hopefully without death rattle this time!

  10. MOT this morning, passed no problem as always, although got an advisory for noisy exhaust, my fault for not bothering to fit the baffle in the Arrow, exup disabled doesn't help.:D
    Only done 800 miles in 12 months, versus nearly 5000 miles on the Thruxton, shows which has been my favourite, although having to get the Daytona in/out the house each time has a bearing. Really enjoyed my last couple of rides on the 675R though and I think things may swing back around somewhat next year, If I had to sell one or the other it would have been an easy choice in favour of the Thruxton last year but now I'm not so sure.:confused:

    Usually service it in the winter but decided to do the oil & filter and change the coolant today instead of in the freezing cold months, I can do the rest indoors.
    Stripped both fairings off, I gave the front of the engine a good clean and dose of ACF50 last year and luckily it hasn't seen any rain this summer so it all looked tidy. Was pleased to see the radiator looked perfect after I had to remove some corrosion and repaint some sections of the side tanks and the bottom edge last year.
    Removed the expansion tank to clean as it was slightly gungy at the very bottom, never been done in 8 years.
    Old coolant looked fine, only 3 years old, flushed it through with distilled water before re-filling. Used a section of hosepipe to blow in the radiator when draining, surprising how much extra coolant you get out that way.

  13. The Daytona won't be going anywhere now although I haven't Sorned the Thruxton yet, was hoping for maybe one or two last rides this month but looking out the window and at the forecast I'd be better off with a canoe, plus the rear tyres down the the wear limit:eek:

    Yeah my fork seals need doing as they started to weep so as it'll be off the road soon that's one of the first jobs to get done over winter.

    I think I've done more miles in the kayak This year than in the street!
