Mr Whooshka a bike lift helps a lot. Time wise I am retired so that is not a problem as long as I get my housebitch duties done 1st.
Wish I had the room for a lift. Garages are filled with 2 SUV's, a British sports car, 1 motorcycle and 3 bicycles.

How is the Missus these days? ZRX board just isn't the same anymore.

When I'm not using my lift, the SUV is parked over it in the garage. When I want to use the lift, the SUV gets parked outside for the duration. I just have to choose the time.

Regreased & re-torqued steering head / inspected bearings. I have the 50-40 deceleration hands off wobble. Bearings looked fine. I blame the PR4GT. Even though I cleaned & regreased i found them to have plenty of grease, dont know if that is typical factory ir if it was done by others prior. Judging by the semi-clear color I woudl guess factory.

Dealer gave me the recalled front brake switch kit so i plugged that in. The little tab that locks the connector to the base plate was broken so someone has already been in there or was done at factory.

Today. Drained the coolant, flushed the system of all that nasty smelling and somewhat chunky brown stuff. Need to wait to refill for a few days, didn't have any in stock and we are on cootie quarantine for a couple more days. Changed the oil. Removed the Pair system. Moved where the gps power supply was (put it in side the glove box). Fixed one of the cowl brackets with the captured nuts. Removed some more of the spaceship light wiring that the PO had installed. Ordered some new galfer lines, ebc pads and some pair block off plates.

Today got a little more done. Replaced the 2007 clutch master/slave with the larger displacement 2016 version. Also got the stock clutch line removed in preparation for the braided replacement.

De-funked the wheels...
Tire Wheel Automotive tire Light Blue



Cleaned up the U-joint then cleaned & re lubed all the splines with some Honda moly. Changing rear gear oil...will let it drip a couple days. Installed the rear shock mud flap all the FJRs got stock except the ones like mine.

Bolted the bars back up & tidied up some of the wiring...more orderly now.

Up next...brakes & controls. Also need to install a battery tender lead & GPS power lead to stay on the bike. Will just run the GPS cord back to the power port in the glove box--I'll plug it in there when needed. Will take it in thru the drain hole.

Got the coolant in, will have to wait a month or so to see if I guessed right on the fill level. Not a lot left to do until the lines and pads come in. Suppose I should go through the spiders while everything is apart

Nothing much to guess on the fill level, just fill it...... whatcha mean?
As for the reservoir, I fill mine ~3/4" above the max line, and after a coupla cooling cycles, it settles at max.

Perfect time to check the spiders.....

That is the guess. I filled the system up to the top and guessed at about 1 inch above the max line as how much air will still be in the system.

Not critical IMHO on the reservoir level... if it ends up a tad above max, sobeit.

I'm guessing your gps power is usb from the glovebox aux power? Or is it cigarette lighter plug?
I have a cord with a cig lighter on it or a USB cord that I can use with a cig to USB adaptor. Have not decided which to mount on the bike yet, either way just plugging into the power port.

I asked b/c he mentioned both a battery tender and a gps power from the glove box. I f the gps is usb powered, he won't need the glove box power if the battery tender is routed toward the handlebars. There's a tender-to-usb adapter, just plug in gps there.

For just a GPS, perhaps use a fuse tap in the Hazard fuse as on Gen3 it is separate from the main fuse panels... it switches on via the ignition as does the glove box outlet. Save your space for storage, not a big lighter socket......
