@FlipFlop those bar ends and reservoir cover are sick! where does one find those?
I got all that on EBay a few years ago. Cheap stuff that replaced the rashed ones as my bike was a salvage bike. You put a Corbin on yours, that is the only way to go. I spent a lot of money throwing cash at that company but my butt loves the ride so much better. I can ride all day with no question of my ride decisions.

not an EX however......... some mid-season duties performed on my Ducati SS800 today....an oil/filter change, removing/examining/tightening spark plugs, checked/tightened all front axle related hardware and adjusted the front steering stem bearing. Lubed the chain, followed up with a cleanup/wipedown of all bodywork.

Runs as good as she looks at 10,500 miles now. I take advantage of the "mid-season" as the perfect time for any catch-up required maintenance.

I got some FREE! saddlebags from the freepile at a yard sale yesterday...one side has a bit of a tear near a zipper but a needle and thread worked an I won't notice it after a week or so...Not sure if they're any good yet but seem solid and not cheesy. Expandable type too. The best is , I have a set of usefully capacious bags for each bike! and I won't have to move bags from one to another with all the quirks attaching them to each model of bike.

Got some new grips on the ninja and wow 40k miles will really wear a set out!
Also got some new lighting installed. New license plate frame, (running, brake turn,) added a 6 pin plug the tucks under the seat and flips out to add aux lighting to my bike rack for extra safety.

The adaptor for the harness was 6 pins and I only needed 5 for the rear light install. I'm thinking about using that final pin for up glow lighting on the bicycle for ultimate at night coolness and safety perhaps :cool:

All aux wiring was added without cutting any stock wiring so easy to remove or modify, basically just a second harness that plugs in with the stock harness near the taillight and turn signal connectors. Stoked on the install now time for some long bike on bike trips! Only a couple more items and the 500 is ready for the next 60k miles of adventure.

Lubed my chain. Burnt myself on the exhaust in the process. Who would've thought the exhaust can get that hot. 😆

on my Honda CBR650R at 7100 miles......changed oil and filter ( 3rd? 4th? time now) and finished with a badly needed detailing. Used my favorite Honda Spray Polish!
The Honda is running impeccably, as it should!
