On your 2016 8gen the idle adjust knob is just above the clutch slave cylinder on the left of the bike, turning the knob clockwise will increase your idle rpm.

Nice Video ,doesn't look like Denmark to me more Spain.

Right, you already passed our tallest mountains (about 173 meters) a couple of times in that video. 

 

I think it does say Spain in one of the other videos from "FLASH FLASH".

We will be passing your way in just over a months time.

Bought a Michelin Road5 for the back end after coming home from work on Friday, wheeling it back into the garage and noticing this. Couldn't get it plugged because the screw hadn't gone in straight so it was more of a tear than a hole, plus it's illegal to repair Z-rated tyres in the UK. The Road5 was all I could get at the time so I've had to swallow my (maybe unwarranted) dislike of Michelins brought on by the poor performance of the Pilot Road 4 on my 8th gen and give their latest offering a chance, though I admit I loved the Pilot Road 3 I had on my 6th gen. Hopefully it won't complain too much about a half-worn Bridgestone T31 at the front.

New DID chain and Sunstar sprockets despite everything still being in spec, with the OEM chain and sprockets still looking good at 40,150 miles (!) (I only use Honda spray lube on the chain)

 

New adjustable billet levers from Japan

 

New NGK iridium plugs

 

Coolant flush

 

Brake and clutch fluid flush and replacement with Endless RF650

 

Endless PRO2 front pads

 

New Honda OEM quickshifter (busted the peg on the first one)

 

Honda synthetic oil and OEM filter

 

Honda OEM air filter

 

Then I went for a ride!

A couple of fabulous photos and a couple of great bikes Shinigami. I've done 72,000ks on my 8gen and currently on my second chain with the original sprockets, due for a chain replacement in a few thousand k's however I will probably only replace the front sprocket, a close inspection of the sprockets recently revealed no visible wear! I've successfully ran at least two chains to a set of OEM sprockets for many years, I'm a bit of a fusspot for checking tension and regular lubing. YMMV.

That RF650 brake fluid is expensive, I know it's a very high performance product, but does it still require replacement every two years as per normal Dot 4?

Cheers.

Put the optimate on the battery that I thought had died a while back (I had stuck it on the charger and brought it back to live) and removed the Innov k2 to put on the Bmw
