    Air filter, oil and oil filter changed. Headers polished with Autosol. All ready for action, I fear I could be 5 or 6 weeks premature though.

    Deffo too early, weather too shocking to contemplate any sort of deep cleaning!
    I've got the weekend when the clocks go back scheduled for this task!

    So I finally got around to fitting the stomp grips very kindly supplied by the generous northern Doris
    Think the clear was the right way to go, thanks @Lozzy

    I finally got round to fitting the later (2012 onwards) rear shock to my 2009 'blade. Thanks to @LRJimmy I had a hugger to go with it (sent it to me free and he wouldn't even let me pay for the postage, liking this forum).

    It took me a lot longer to get to that point than expected though. I think I'll buy a track fairing set to make maintenance easier as I don't plan on using it on the road much, if at all.

    While I was there I lubricated the bearings on the linkage etc. There was a bit of scoring on the inner face of one of the linkage plates but it appeared to be down to crap trapped in that area. The bearings were all in good condition.

    I recieved my pillion foot rests back from a local sprayer today. He does alot of bike related work and I couldn't be happier with the satin black finish.

    Yeah it's very loud, ear plugs are a must ha. Unfortunately the misus requires somewhere to put her feet, I had suggested walking but that didn't go down too well

    Little bit late starting this, but time for an overhaul for the summer, suspension off for a refresh and body work off for a fresh coat of paint.

    Take a new set of headers, some steel to make a jig and bang, the cat is gone :)
    Sounds simple but it took a very skilled welder to get in seamlessly smooth inside and out...:D:D

    Not quite a full detail, but the first Maintenance wash since November.
    Fall out remover, quick clay, polish, glaze and sealant.

    Like my Mrs still scrubs up well with a little effort
