  1. Yes it was down, I had too many backup files piled up on the server and it ran out of space.  Deleted a bunch of junk and restarted.  Still dont know why it was piling up so much I have it set to delete old stuff. I ran out of time its my work week so I just got it up and running and will trouble shoot the backup thing later.

  2. My bike would go wide when I rolled on the throttle out of the turn. I solved this by adding more rebound damping in the forks to prevent the forks from telescoping out once I unloaded them by adding more throttle.  Replace the fork oil too if it's been a few years, same effect. Sounds like you are experiencing poor rebound damping. The 1200 is very front heavy too, so any throttle or breaking is amplified in the handling. Sounds like the dunlops might have a bigger diameter then your old tires. Back off some preload so the bike is not nose up.

  3. The veefalo (2010 1200vfr standard) has over 60k miles on it, trouble free. It had a recall done on the shaft drive, but the old one showed no sign of failure. Its mostly stock, just a bazzaz bomb, Leo Vince slip on, and k&n air filter. I've done two valve adjustments, the rocker valves tend to need adjustments while the shim under buckets dont. I replaced the spark plugs, but saw no significant signs of worn plugs, iridium plugs are bulletproof. I forgot to replace an oring on the front valve cover, and it smoked oil a bit. I freaked out of course. Took it apart again and found my missing oring. Put in a new one and no more oil smoke. It's been a really reliable bike.

  4. I recently updated the forum to the latest greatest always ever changing forum version last week, if you have not noticed.  They put in a popup every time you miss the notification for admins and its really a PITA.  I dont much like upgrading since well most things break when they do offer an upgrade.

     

    This time tap-a-talk has broken, I have been working with the tap-a-talk people and just cant seem to get it to install.  so I have removed it completely for now to keep the forum from crashing, the install would crash every time I tried to install the new version.  

     

    Now however invisonboard has built a mobile application if you prefer to use your phone.  I will try again with tap-a-talk when they release the latest version.  I need to figure out if its a problem with the files or the registry in the database? In any case they seem to have lost my account at tap-a-talk and I cant even find the api number you need for it to work. I am really kind of done with tap-a-talk for now. 

     

    I know a lot of you really rely on tap-a-talk so Im sorry.

  8. Not conclusively I am pretty sure its a damaged pair system oring like stated in the thread before.  I am not burning oil at a significant rate, my oil level is the same day after day. I will look into it when I do the next service interval. 
    I just did a valve clearance check, removed the rear cylinder cover, sure enough the oring was missing. I put a new one on, buttoned up the bike, started it up...no smoke. Thanks so much for the help.

    Update I did a valve clearance  check, rear cylinder head oring was missing. Replaced it finished the valve check, put it back together. Not smoking anymore. !!

     

    Thanks for the help in identifying the root cause.

  10. I will have gps route files available after the weekend.  I can either post them up or email them out to those who can use them.
     
    Good I tried to trace one out on mapsource, cant find some of those roads. Or I have to drill in way detailed. 500ft it would take a while, hoping you already did all that.
