Fairings are off and gas tank is too, I wonder stromtroopers what should I do?

My front fairing off, side panels too
the tank is removed without too much ado.
air filter is cleaned and letting it dry.
when it is ready oil I'll apply

the fastners are numbered with tape that is masking
so that putting them back "should not" be too tasking.

Now that the insides of my wee are exposed.
Some wiring corrections and upgrades proposed.

"oh no" said the troopers "your circuits will blow!
The gps wired to the headlight must go"

"H4 dual headlight relay kit we advise.
heavy duty disconnect option is wise
PC-8 panel or 3 circuit solution,
have all your accessories and no retribution"

Is this complete, did I leave anything out?
if you think of something please give me a shout!

Haiku is not precise.
He didn't mention rattle canning the surface for a more unique appearance.

Garage
way too funny

my Vees just the same
alone in my shop
with just me to blame

the oil change is done
of course a filter as well
it's all sort of fun

K&N filter still damp
it's get's oiled when it's dry
either by sun or a lamp

sometime I say F....
hope that tank will fit back
those plastic rivets do suck

With all of the wonderful wording and rhyme
All you come up with is "check valve clearance this time?"

Plugs and valves, since it is apart anyway.
Not to hi-jack, but does a Wee have enough juice to run high and low beams at the same time?

valve clearance

it very true
valve clearance is due
a good point you bring to my mind.

yet valve clearance or clutch
engine work and such
best to an expert assigned.

I can farkle with flair
in tires put air
alas not so mechanically inclined .
