Portland area Maintenance/Tech day feeler.

On a few rides it has been mentioned that we should do a Maintenance day. I have a few upgrades I want to do and the Davids are needing to do some stuff on there non-Stroms.

Whats everyone think?

When Where ect.

Its a long way out but if you all want to do it out at my place we could make it a BBQ and BS session as well. I have some tools but lack a good torque wrench at the moment. I have enough covered space to work on half a dozen or more bikes if we want to do it on a rain day.

If someone closer in has a good place to do it... lets get some ideas.

I'd be down as long as my wife hasn't already booked something for me. Also if I do go I can bring some tools like torque wrenches and some others if need be. I've got about all the tools besides a chain break and press.

Of course that's if I'm free. :-)

Yes, hopefully I am free on the chosen day also. I'll bring the A/C recharging supplies and a big hammer.

The weather seems to be getting nicer, well, except for this week. Should we try this again? Maybe memorial day weekend sometime?

Would like to get my headlight relay/headlight cut kit installed.

Yes!

I definitely need some newbie maintenance help. I can't even figure out how to take off my front-sprocket cover to clean things out up there.
