    Wanted to get a few hard to reach places cleaned today, I stripped the sub frame apart when I got it to clean that up last year. Also did an oil and filter change as not had one since 2015 but only done 4,500 since, think I've put about 1,200 miles on it.

    Removed the rear hugger to give inside a proper wash and polish, took off chain guard to give that a proper clean up to get old chain lube of too. I decided to pull rear caliper off to clean and check pads, found a stuck piston, cleaned and lubed all the pins too while it was off. Has had new pads a little while b4 I got it as hardly worn.
    Gave rear wheel a wash and polish b4 refitting.

    I was going out on it but it rained here Friday night and I decided not to set alarm as was going to be early meet and I was working till nearly 4am. But it brightened up a bit so I thought I would get there jobs done as my friends would be about 100 miles away.
    Just checked and I've done over 2,000 miles on it in the 9 months I've owned it, still not enough though, sorry.:mad:
