Bike is all back together, except the plastics.  I'll test ride this afternoon, and if all is OK, put the fairing lowers back on.

But speaking of things that rattle loose, when I loosened the radiator and moved it out of the way. the horn fell out.  It still had its bracket, but the bracket was not bolted to anything.  The service manual told me where it went, and I had a stainless bolt of the right size to fix it.

Plastics are back on the machine.

So I took advantage of this rainy day to do my 6000 mile service which is actually my 7100 mile service.

Sometimes you've got to love technology. This feature makes life so much easier, no dealing with vacuum gauges.

Bike is finally going on for valve checks next week.  While they have it, I'm getting a new front suspension.
