Not today, but in the past week:

Rebuilt the front brake master cylinder. Much smoother and more progressive braking now!
Replaced the hand grips. Put on a set of ProTaper motocross grips. I hear they are comfortable and help with the buzziness of the inline four a little bit. Will see when i ride again (+95* and high humidity is not when I want to ride to work).

Don't park them close, to one another.

When i picked up Pat's, ultra low mileage 2001 FZ1, about eight months ago, i parked the bike next to my high mileage, 2002 FZ1. The old bike tried to take a nip out of the new bike! They are still not on speaking terms yet! lol!

Do you still remember the Buyer's name? I sold mine on Ebay yesterday for $150. But after looking at the PayPal transaction info, I noticed the buyer's name and address:

Dnipro LLC, Semenyakov Maxim
645 W 1st Ave
DN02799-0
Roselle, NJ 07203-1049

This address has surfaced negatively for various Ebay reviews as a scam. So I have contacted PayPal about refunding the funds (if they are indeed legit). Not sure I want to deal with a Russian ( I was specific in the ad about USA-transactions only), and that last name looks rather sploogie.

Thanks! I was sitting here trying to decide if I wanted to cancel the transaction or not.

Guy had 100% positive feedback. Sold it a month ago and he paid and hasn’t complained. So I wouldn’t worry

Woke up this morning, about to get into the company car, realized it was a cool 60 degree, 0 humid morning. To opened the garage and took the bike to work.

Played with the healtech settings while bored, it’s fun having it active around 2500 rpms for intown playing. But blipping downshifts it’s annoying when it cuts. So moved it to 7k. Much better.

Nothing to my 2001 FZ1, but did sand a spare RF1100 helmet with 500 grit, wet sandpaper, this afternoon.

Tomorrow Saturday, will carefully mask off the helmet especially the vents, then will apply enough base coat deep purplish blue, to cover. Then a silver 1/8" pin stripe around the protruding contour line, of the helmet. Then two coats of clear on said stripe, and then two more on the complete helmet. Should really pop, when I am through.

That being said, I still have more pieces on the bike, to make D.P.B. lol!

Yes, when i get this bike finished, I will obtain help with photos, and put said photos here, for your amusement.
