T-Clock inspection & maintenance

19 Jun

At 145,670km it seems like a good time to do some serious preventative maintenance, as well as an overall check before my next tour. T ires, C ontrols, L ights, O il, C hassis, K ickstand.
Time to wash and oil my air filter.

Changing the spark plugs is a challenge, these bikes seems to be designed and built around the spark plugs. The fuel tank must be removed and the radiator moved aside for access and a very deep socket is needed. I used a rubber hose as a way of threading the plugs in carefully so as not to get one cross threaded.

It’s the first time that I’ve changed the plugs, normally the mechanic does it when the valves are checked. It was frustrating but now that I figured out how, I could do it in half the time. A variety of sockets and extensions are needed to work behind the radiator.
