When installing directional tyres make sure you check twice before mounting them. :augie And even though it is usually obvious which way the wheels fit on the bike I always put a directional arrow on the disc as an extra reminder for the way the tyre should be mounted..

I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Make sure the spare Grey DIN plug is secured on the injectors loom, or it may get stuck under the throttle return mechanism like itbdid with me yesterday

Time to change the underwear after an event like that, perhaps............

The plug is for the California model; part of the emmisions control for that model.

Pick up a new (to you) motorcycle and be so dazzled by its innate beauty and charisma that you do not perform a perfunctory pre-ride inspection. Then ride it for 300kms (some in a sporting manner on roads with no shoulder and a several hundred foot drop off) before wondering what the tools in the tool kit will actually be useful for.

Then find out that the big ring spanner fits the rear axle nut, but that the nut is not even finger tight!! :bug_eye

Buy Dealertool when Tune ECU does exactly the same thing for nowt outlay.

Edit: UNLESS you have ABS brakes and want to do a 'full' bleed, in which case Dealertool helps.
