Yesterday I installed Scottoiler esystem which had been waiting for a while on the shelf.
I had the Vsystem with HCR running for 30000 km until the main unit got clogged. In between I tried Tutoro chain oiler but it did not give any oil from the position I placed it even though priming was ok - I will test it on another bike and with better positioning.
The eSystem suggested plugging it directly into the battery and that’s what I did. The screen shuts down quite fast and then starts when power is back on. Probably following the voltage (but it is not shown on the screen). Someone passing by could prime the system over and over again.
After two hour ride I once again had properly oiled chain.
All these oil systems make me wonder how many sets of chains and sprockets I could have afforded with the same money…
Today I put the massively heavy stock mufflers back on and moved the Delkevic mufflers back to the Trophy. The stock ones actually don't sound bad on the Vee and that Triumph Triple is SO deserving of the Delkevic cans. The sound is SEXY.
I also discovered my brake light is always on. Dammit Janet! I know it was tricky with the adjustment when I put the peg lowering kit on. After the crash AdventureTech was AWESOME and sent me a replacement plate for the right side (I had bent mine in the crash). So, one more job to regain perfection - rear brake light switch adjustment.
I discovered my brake light was always on. I could hear the front switch making/breaking so figured rear switch adjustment was out. I added the AdventureTech peg lowering kit last year, then bent the right side plate when I was hit. They sent me a new plate which I installed, but I guess the switch adjustment must have been borderline and in changing the plate I moved it a fraction. So, newly adjusted and all working as designed now. Oh yeah, I discovered this after putting the stock mufflers back on last week. They sound good, just a bit quiet - and heavy. The Delkevic mufflers went back on the Trophy Triple. That sound is almost indescribable.
Fitted the GPS RAM mount and wired it up to the accessory socket. From this angle it looks as though it obscures the clocks but from the riding position it doesn't. Used the RAM-B-367U kit on the top left handlebar mount.
Had the chance today to try out the portable wheel lift stand I picked up on Amazon to lube my chain at fuel fill ups on the road. Works like a charm to lift the back tire off the ground for quick maintenance on the go.
