15000 mile service. Wee II
Spent the day doing a major 15k mile service on the Wee Strom 650 will continue tomorrow. Today I checked the valves, replaced the plugs, new air filter. Tomorrow new oil and filter, brake bleed, and new coolant. And of course will finish it off with lubing all the pivot points on the machine, and checking for loose hardware. As far as valve clearances go, I did not have to change any shims this time. Cylinder one (front) the valve clearances were right in the middle of Spec. Intakes were at .015 mm and the exhausts were at .023mm. Cylinder two (rear) the intakes were at .015mm, middle of spec, but the exhaust were at .021mm, on the tight side of the specification. Still in spec but might have to adjust at the next check @ 30k miles. All in all pretty easy. Of course having a platform lift really makes working on ones motorcycle a pleasure.
Radiator is back on with new coolant, Oil and filter change is done. Tank is reinstalled and now it is time for a coffee break. Will finish up the brakes today and then button her up. Might get a chance to take the Wee out for a test ride tomorrow, or the next day.
Afternoon of Day two. Bike is all buttoned up and ready for a test ride in the morning. No fasteners short, no fasteners left over. All is good.
