    Got the new Veredestein Q 5s' installed - see other post for impressions.

    Also, finally traced and removed the unsightly GPS mount from the handlebars. Couldn't find Stainless cap bolts so had to use SS Button head. Now I've got a mount and cable for an unknown GPS laying around. really need to get rid of this old stuff.

    Got the ready for an overnighter down 395 for about 4 hours towards Bishop, Ca. A superior bakery makes the trip a gastronomic pleasure after being cooped up for months.

    I had to take advantage of the roadside assistance today.

    Was ryding into town to top off the fuel tank, and got a check engine light and LIMP HOME MODE
    Pulled into a nearby parking lot, and got LOW OIL - STOP ENGINE
    Fault code came up P0254
    Checked oil level, it was covering dipstick.

    I called the nearest dealer (about 40 miles away), and they said I needed to get it in there for them to look at. So I called the roadside assistance number, and they got a towing service to pick up and drop off my Spyder (2018 RT).

    When I called the service department, they said they were looking at it, and would let me know what they found out. Depending on what they tell me, I may be considering the B.E.S.T. warranty (but not from them - they want $1399 for 36 months)

    Got some lights from Lamonster and installed them.

    Added some extra tail lights

    And a Lamonster Bright Ryder on the front

    Both were easy enough to install, and look great.

    Installed new front sprocket on neighbors 2015 RT. What a bear to remove old one, lots of red dust, Had to use a lot of heat and a puller. Also installed Lamonster belt tensioner.

    Installed new brake/run/turn LED lights from Spyderpops. Wanting them higher up than under seat, more in the line of sight of any vehicle following me, I chose to install them on back of passenger armrests. I am pleased with the end result.

    Picking up Spyder from dealer. With the broken ankle I did not feel like crawling around it to flush brake fluid and coolant so I bit the bullet and had the dealer do it. Many dollars, will never do that again. Next job is to replace the rear brake pads and add the side marker lights to the bags.

    Worked on a friend's F3S that he recently acquired. Moved the pegs from 3 to 4. Swapped brake rods. Cut windshield down so he can see over it. Loosened handlebar clamp and lowered them. Yeah, they move up and down.

    Took delivery on a new 2019 RTL and got a short ride in before the sun cooked me medium-well. It's 110+ here today.

    I watched Nuke's video about installing bright LED rear turn signal bulbs and was inspired to do that to my F3L after seeing how dull the stock ones are. Ordered a pair and put them in. Holy Lumens Batman, those suckers are REALLY bright! There will be no doubt now when my flashers or turn sigs are on.

    Yesterday got the Shad brake light installed. Thought I would have issues with connectors but the local Autobarn had the correct ones so a nice neat job. Previous weekend did my first oil and filter change on Spydey. GPS mount I think will be next.

    Cool Some repairs and upgrades.

    I just got my 08 Spyder GS SM5 back from the shop after almost a month. Had the DPS Unit replace , new front tires, ball joint replaced and had an alignment done.
    They also fixed two recalls. Something with a gas evap hose and a new gas cap. I replaced the battery when I bought it. I got it from my local Batteries Plus store.

    In the last week since I got it back. I've replaced the Frunk seal. I got it from Spyderprops

    bad seal.jpg good seal.jpg

    Then I removed the rear Pin Up Girl decal that came on it. (https://amzn.to/3gUPbLy)

    ay9tHBYCTC2iEwexYn_2SQ.jpg No girl on rear.jpg

    I've left the decal on the front on for now. I've gotten some compliments and she's growing on me.

    I also upgraded the headlight bulbs. I ended up using Sylvania (H7) SilverStar zXe Gold bulbs.
    https://amzn.to/38SEhDf

    I got a key holder and key chain. Link shows it in red. Wasn't able to find the blue one. (Link on my past orders has changed)
    https://amzn.to/30bFX73

    Key Chain.jpg

    I'm a Star Wars fan so that explains the key chain (https://amzn.to/2BYA7hf).

    And lastly I got a cover for it. Which I have yet to put on, cause I've been driving it almost everyday since I got the Spyder back from the shop.

    I'm having too much darn fun on the Spyder!

    Performed my first oil change. Did the change on the garage floor with a bucket shallow enough to slide under the Spyder. Learned a lot as I went along (watched Lamonster's video before starting). Pretty sure that I can do the next one in half the time.

    Did my first and hardest, of course, oil change. Hard because I didn't know all the tools needed. The good news is, next time will be easier and my uphill sloping driveway gets the bike level without having to lift the back end.

    Hmmm, I like it, wonder if it would work on the 20 RTL? I need to check if the drain plugs are at the rear of the oil pan.

    The plugs are almost at the rear, enough that most oil will drain out. However, my slanted driveway had the bike perfectly level.
