30.000 Km service
« on: 2013-04-13 18:04:38 »

Did the rest of my 30.000 km service today, and found the bike to be in a good condition.

Except for the spark plugs!

Two of the sp.plugs was standing in water, and as you could see from the photos - one was totally white from corroding - after been in water for a long time.

The valves was all OK. Two a little to open, but within specs. Not needed to change any buckets.

Changed the coolant, break fluid, oils, ear and oil filter etc.

Could not change the clutch fluid - as I didn't have a 5mm bleed screw - so have to do that one later on.
NB!!! This bike dos not use ordinary dot4 in the clutch system, but a special clutch fluid !!

Break pads rear/front was down to 1/3, but changed then anyway.

Also changed the breading pipe for the front light housing to a longer one.

Mounted the HID's for the long beam, and is working, but I will need to find a way to bay pass the current limiter of the original light bulbs.
The long beam bulbs are running in about 50% duty cycle from the controller, and the HID's are not totally satisfied by that  :-\

Also mounted the infra red parking assistens ZR4  ;D , in front of the bike - and I think it will work grate  ::)
NB - have taken the jammer out of function, only want the indication.

Oil in the rear bevel gears was looking good, but changed.

Found painting on the engine to start to peal off on some places - NOT happy about that  >:(
 
All on all - quite happy with the bike so far.

Will have a few sw updates, when time permits at the dealer.

    Which one of the spark plugs were standing in water, Steinar? Might be interesting to know. I assume some must be more exposed to the environment than others.
    Thanks for the nice write-up. My 30k will happen after the summer or so.

      interesting indeed. Any idea on why those 2? Would the water almost funnel in through the duolever? If so, what makes it deviate more that that side? There must be some kind of explanation for sure.
      I only removed the left fairing so far, never the right so can't speak for that myself. Would be good to hear if others here have seen the same.

        Maybe you use the side stand a lot, causing any water to run to the left?

        Well - using the sidestand should not be the reason - as the construction looks quite OK.
        I have no clue why this is happening.

        As you can see on this image: ila_rendered
        its not easy to get water inside the cavety for the plugs.

        And then there is this rubber boot covering the whole thing : ila_rendered

          Other guess: do you use a high pressure cleaner?

          Yes - I have a high pressure cleaner, but never used on any of my bikes !

          My philosophy is that s HPC is a source of all kind of problems on a bike.

            Agreed. That's why I never use mine on a bike as well. On the other hand; that puts me out of ideas.
