i'm surprised no one has created this yet. Simple.. what did you do for ur Ninja today? fill gas? changed chain? added blinkers? changed tires? anything goes. Lets hear em.

I'll start it off.

I adjusted the idle on mine. It was at ~1500. I lowered it down to 1300rpm but it was running a bit rough so i played with it a bit and at 1100ish it was the smoothest so thats what i left it at. ;D

I've been working on my bike off and on for the last day or two, and will be for another few days.

I'm at 18K miles, and trying to get everything sorted for a bunch more riding this summer!

DONE:
- Oil change
- air filter clean/oil
- new spark plugs
- barnett clutch springs
- reflective **** on rims and frame

To be done in the next few days:
- Valve clearance adjustment
- carb cleaning
- new chain and sprockets (-1/+2)
- full brake service

I took the long way home so I could ride back the slow way. I put the reflective rim tape on today.

Dynabeads. I removed the front weight for some paint removal/polishing and lost my marker of where it went. Dynabeads were 11.75 for front and rear. Definitely smoother than with no balance weight on the front, but not a huge improvement over before i took off the front weight..

Dynabeads, cussing most of the time - took forever to get those things in there.
Said nasty things about it in my mind due to the never-ending buzz from the plastics.
Looked at it and wondered how much camping gear (and what camping gear) could be packed on it, and how it would be done - which I will ask on a new thread.
Planned what I am going to do to it tomorrow as I have a trip planned for next week.

Flogged her at well over the speed limit for about 5 hours today while riding around while doing my job! Got plenty of attention from cute girls, almost got merged over by an SUV, burned off a tank of gas and parked it in the driveway covered in bugs.

So yeah, tank of gas is what I did for her

Paid for an ePAY auction for a speedometer...
I also attempted to buy new plug boots & some bulk plug wire at the local NAPA, only to be pointed out the door towards the STEALership.
Guess I gotta start perusing ePAY for something that will work.
Suggestions?
