Regarding Winter Projects - Issue #6
By Adam Chandler • Issue #6 • View online
It’s February and I’ve squandered Winter projects so far. It’s not to say that there hasn’t been progress but the Winter schedule has gotten the best of me. What’s usually my quiet time of year has lead to some set backs at work that have added stress and kept me out of the garage / basement. I’ve also had this cold chill in my bones that hasn’t broken…I think I need a beach day if such a thing existed in New Hampshire in February.
November, great progress! I detailed the motorcycles and brought them inside and assembled the Abba Sky Lift
December, I had my gallbladder removed and took that month off from eating more than 400 calories a day, drinking alcohol and really working as much as I could with 4 holes in my abdomen
January, completely unproductive. I struggled with some K75 issues, really just broken plastics and things in need of some TLC and I just sort of lost my excitement around doing anything with that bike this Winter. I also changed all of the fluids in the R1200 and F750 bikes and basically got all of the maintenance on those up to date.
February, well my ‘winter projects list’ is still long!
R1200GS:
  1. Troubleshoot heated seat
  2. Pull front & rear shocks and mail to BeemerShop 
  3. Touch up paint on center stand
  4. Check leak on brake fluid reservoir 
  5. Re-wire Denali Sound Bomb
F750GS:
  1. Install AltRider Skid Plate
  2. Install AltRider crash bars
K75:
  1. Touch up paint on frame
  2. Paint Center Stand
  3. Inspect clutch to kickstand cable and lube
  4. Fix MotoGadget preferences button
