Trivia .....

Post  gus on Mon 10 Jan 2011, 1:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

What does everone think about a TRIVIA thread

Stuff that maybe of no use to most people but really handy to the others. Maybe a good DVD ,something they have made,seen ,heard of ,
cooked ,been too .Minor things that do not really warrant a post of there own.(like most of my stuff ,there beat you to it )
Like taking a tractor tyre up north to float your Bandit across a river to a football selection ,the taste of beer ,who's state is
better at Rugby League. Laughing (may be not that) .Something that may make someone else say ,"why didnt i think of that".

Good idea or just post it on "off topic discussions " or not post it at all? (feeling vulnerable now )

When Beasley was Defence Minister he increased the size of our Tank Regiment by 25%, we went from three squadrons of 4 tanks to four squadrons of 3 tanks, don't you just love political decision making.

Just spent 5 days in Sydney. Stayed in the city at Metro Apartments or something like that.
Caught train from the airport to motel and buses around Sydney.
Seen the Opera House, Sydney Harbor Bridge, ST Mary' Church Lights and Christmas Carols, The Rocks markets, Darling Harbour, China Town and swam in the water at Bondi.
Enjoyed the experience but I would think twice about riding a bike (petrol or pedal powered) in the big cities.

I rode my VX800 through the middle of Sydney and over the Harbour Bridge in the early 90's, Drove there a few years back, I'd still tackle it on a bike, it would have to be easier with a GPS than the last time I did it with maps in the pocket on top of a tank bag

Roadworks upcoming on Putty Road.

Post  Re-Cycled on Mon 23 May 2016, 6:24 pm

This might be relevant to anyone travelling through.


$1.3 MILLION ROAD SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS ON PUTTY ROAD

Roads and Maritime Services will start safety improvement work from Monday 23 May on Putty Road near Milbrodale and Putty.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter, Scot MacDonald MLC said the NSW Government allocated $720,000 for work to improve safety on stretches of the road with a history of motorcycle crashes.

“In the five years to June 2015 there were four crashes on Putty Road from one kilometre south to 700 metres north of Putty Valley Road all resulting in injuries,” Mr MacDonald said.

“Two fatal crashes were also recorded last year about 16.5 kilometres south of Milbrodale.

“The majority of these crashes involved vehicles losing control and veering off the road on a curve.

“Work will involve widening the road shoulders, road resurfacing and improving safety barriers and line marking to reduce the risk of crashes on a total of six bends.”

Mr MacDonald said the Australian Government allocated $630,000 through the Federal Blackspot Programme for an additional safety improvement project near Milbrodale.

“In the five years to June 2015 there were five head-on crashes on Putty Road from 30 metres south to 1.6 kilometres north of Darkey Creek Road at Milbrodale, resulting in three injury crashes,” Mr MacDonald said.

“This work will involve widening the road shoulders, installing new signs and improving safety barriers and line marking.

“Putty Road is popular with recreational motorcyclists and this work will include upgrading the existing safety barriers to provide motorcycle specific protection on the outside of road bends.”

Work is scheduled to start on Monday 23 May and will be carried out on Monday to Saturday between 7am and 5pm.

One lane will be closed during the upgrade work and signs, traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place.

All three upgrades are expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.

Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety upgrades are carried out.

Ha ha. Yep, I'm with you on the lack of beauty for the Ducati. One guy here has one - costly enough but then had to spend $1000s to get the suspension sorted.

Air Filter Servicing

Post  Re-Cycled on Sat 12 Nov 2016, 12:10 pm

I found this on an ADV forum, it is not directly related to the Bandit but since some members have expressed difficulties with basic mechanical operations, it lays out some sound work practices that may be helpful.

From Page 456, Official Suzuki Maintenance Manual for Suzuki DL Series R2- series 2004 (effective January 5, 2004).

Re-Placement of Air Filtration Device

1. Place motorcycle on centre stand (Refer to page 416 of manual, Frame Maintenance and Chassis Repair, illustration 1a). If centre stand missing, order centre stand, part number SA16667033-211 before proceeding. For installation of centre stand, see Removal of Exhaust System, page 256, step 4, Illustration 14b).
2. Proceed to white vertical atmospherically controlled toolbox at right rear corner of work shop.
3. Remove aluminum 355ml canister labeled "beer" from white vertical toolbox. Follow opening instructions.
4. Remove contents from canister obtained in step 3.
5. Examine motorcycle using standard mechanic visual observation techniques. To ensure adequate air pressure, gently kick rear tire.
6. Return to white vertical toolbox and repeat steps 3-4.
7. Repeat observation as set forth in step 5, and in addition squeeze right front brake lever to assure adequate fluid levels.
8. Proceed to Horizontal steel container marked “MACTools”. Access Phillips screwdriver. Stop at white vertical toolbox and repeat steps 3-4 while returning to motorcycle.
9. Consider removing seat. Contemplate task of removal of two side panels.
10. Return to white vertical toolbox. Repeat steps 3-4.
11. Firmly grasp Phillips screwdriver and while holding rear seat steady, remove from chassis.
12. Execute step 11, by first placing Phillips screwdriver on tool bench. Remove seat properly with both hands. Repair damage to seat upholstery caused by screwdriver using duct tape located in MACTools box.
13. Return to white vertical toolbox and repeat steps 3-4.
14. Firmly grasp Phillips screwdriver. Examine tank and locate decorative plastic center panel on tank.
15. While placing screwdriver on tool bench, remove plastic space connectors with church key. If one is unavailable, roofing hammer claw is reasonable substitute tool for procedure.
16. Drop one connector in manner sufficient to propel same underneath and near wall side of tool bench.
17. Return to white vertical toolbox and repeat steps 3-4.
18. With 10mm socket wrench, remove mounting bolts on side fairing shroud panels on both sides. Holding one bolt loosely in left hand, repeat step 16 only with fairing bolt in left hand instead of plastic connector.
19. Replace side fairing shroud panels remembering at this time it is only necessary to loosen panels to access fuel tank for removal. Search for missing mounting bolt misplaced in step 18.
20. Return to white vertical toolbox and repeat steps 3-4.
21. While holding Phillips screwdriver and 10 mm socket wrench, remove rear tank mounting bolt from frame tab (see illustration 14d).
22. Place Phillips screwdriver on workbench. Remove fuel tank by applying slightly upward and forward motion.
23. Halt fuel tank removal process by gently placing fuel tank back into bracket tab on frame. Proceed to shut off fuel supply at bottom of tank. Remove tank venting and fuel supply hoses from left underside of fuel tank (see illustration 20d, page 678, “Maintenance and Repair of Fuel Supply System”).
24. Properly remove fuel tank as set forth in step 22. Set aside.
25. Return to white vertical toolbox and repeat steps 3-4. If steps 3-4 cannot be repeated at this time, instruct shop assistant to re-supply white vertical toolbox with 355ml. aluminum canisters. Search for tool that will open canisters more efficiently after white vertical toolbox is re-supplied, or order special Suzuki Aluminum Canister Seal Extractor Tool # 456-9998.
26. Before proceeding to steps 23-48, remove battery (for this task refer to page 128, chapter 6: Electrical System Maintenance and Clothing Repair).
27. Proceed to step 28 for instructions on proper cleaning of air filtration element.
29. Replace air filtration element damaged by acetone solution as precautioned against in step 28, with Genuine Suzuki Air Filtration System Element, part number SA16667033-212.
30. Repeat steps 3-4.
31. Replace fuel tank by reversing process recited in step 28.
32. Grasp decorative plastic tank cover. Search for missing plastic mounting hardware and grommets. See step 28 for proper mounting order. Fasten accordingly.
33. Remove air filtration element damaged by acetone solution as precautioned against in step 28. CAUTION: REMOVE AIR FILTRATION ELEMENTS ONLY WITH SPECIAL SUZUKI TOOL (part # 2458888-77-7) SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED FOR THIS PURPOSE, OTHERWISE SEVERE DAMAGE TO EXHAUST VALVE SPRINGS WILL RESULT. For removal procedure refer to paragraph 6.3.2, step 28.
34. Place broken fairing side panels on fairing mounting brackets. Polish away paint stains caused by acetone used while attempting step 28, using Genuine Suzuki Motorcycle Polish, part # 2165559844/4-22.
35. Remove polish, using Genuine Suzuki Motorcycle Polish, part # 2165559844/4-25. Polishing the plastic fairing panels is insufficient procedure to treat acetone induced damage as described in step 28.
36. Prepare plastic fairing panels for painting by using Genuine Official Suzuki Plastic Compatible Sandpaper, part # 561-33-66-987A.
37. Purchase Genuine Official AMA Sanctioned Suzuki Plastic Compatible Motorcycle Spray Paint, part # 2165559844/4-25-B (Ocean Blue).
38. Spray affected plastic fairing panels with paint purchased in step 36. Clean overspray from goggles and re-aim spray canister in proper direction to complete task.
39. Attend to battery cable repair as explained in step 5.
40. Re-attach battery cable to fairing bushings as set out in Chapter 17, Suspension and Transaxle Repair, page 347, illustration 231a-3.
41. Remove sanding and polish residue left remaining on fairing parts while performing steps 34 and 35 before attempting step 37.
42. Repeat steps 3-4. Remove roll of ducting tape from MACTools box.
43. Place sufficient length of ducting tape where appropriate on decorative ABS side panel cracked while executing step 26. Spray side panel with Genuine Official AMA Sanctioned Suzuki Plastic Compatible Motorcycle Spray Paint, part # 2165559844/4-25-B (Ocean Blue), remembering to overspray duct tape to hide color.
44. Repeat steps 3-4 to assure proper drying time.
45. Remove motorcycle from centre stand. Proceed to white vertical toolbox for content inspection.
46. Return to motorcycle. With assistance, retrieve motorcycle from left side prone floor position back to two wheel ready position. Set side stand. Rest motorcycle on side stand as described in Official Suzuki Operator’s Manual for Suzuki DL650 R2- series 2004 Model Year, page 16-2, illustration 3.
47. Inspect for damage. Repair affected body parts using techniques described in steps 5, 26, 34-35, 40-43.
48. Repeat steps 3-4.

Use it as a gimmick, a bloke growing 1/2 a mo is going to attract more attention than  a blow growing a whole mo, you might get more sponsorship $$$$ this way  cheers

My favourite accessory is the SAAS (Staintune Arrival Announcement System) when I get home, by the time I turn the bike around so I can back into the garage the lovely lady of the house appears with the key. Very Happy 

Second favourite is the SDAS (Stebel Douche Advisory System) which I used today to let the lady in the red Mazda know she had graduated to  complete douche, today. Laughing
