There are pictures on the second page from another member. Evidently I was using putfile at the time I attached the photo and putfile is long gone. I cannot find a similar photo on my photobucket account. No problem, as I said, detailed photos on the second page that will get you through. I still use mine and just did last month for some maintenance. Will be checking the steering bearings for tightness either this weekend or next.
I don't get around the motorcycle boards much anymore. I just didn't have anything to offer but what I did have others were parroting as I parroted once long ago SO the information is out there. I haven't gotten to use my bike as much this last summer as the summers before. My next oil change is do at 49,000 miles and it will be a while. I did use the bike nearly every work day in the last 3 months, but, I was laid off from my previous employer that was 23 miles one way and now work only 8 miles away. The road is 55 mph tops too. That means I now get 45+ mpg as compared to the 40 maybe that I would get going to work on the SuperSlab. I had to go down by my old work a couple weeks ago and came home in the normal traffic that I use to navigate. I was scared to death. Did I REALLY do that every day with little thought to it? Like rollerskating in a buffalo heard which everyone knows, by verse, you just can't do.
Took my bike to Oshkosh last year, pulling a little Harbor Freight Tag Along trailer and camped out there with a buddy for the whole week. The EAA airshow is fantastic if you love planes. Came home all in one day with the last 4 hours of it doing 90 in 105 degree heat. I had to get home you see, my daughter was moving on the last day of my planned vacation, and my wife informed me that there were projects I just HAD to get done that day for her. Three days later, after work even, I was still finishing up in the wee hours. Mounting TV's and moving washing machines, dryers and whatnot. She did it again just a month ago but I didn't have any trips due to the employment situation.
Build that jack Ironbutt, it looks just like it sounds. two boards, screwed together, with a handle through their wide side so that you can push down on the handle and pick the frame of your bike up off the floor. Only a couple inches, but that's enough it seems.
