So list of completed items:
Change belts
Spark plugs
Replace fuel filter
Repaired left fairing
Change tail light
Air filter replaced
Oil, brake fluid, and clutch fluid Changed

Last task, put new Pirellis on, and the dealership will inspect it for free.

Then title and tags.

She should be ready to ride by Tuesday!

Installed a hitch on my Honda CRV. Ready to trailer her in the morning for new tires!

Did you check the valves ?

By the way - attached is a picture how you should store this type of bike.
It's what I would call a conversation starter with visitors :)
980160

It's really a shame what the previous owner did to your bike, these are some of the coolest paint jobs around.

If you haven't replaced the coolant don't forget that!
The Agip stuff the dealers use on Multis and Diavels is expensive but i use it in everything.

Probably need a good flush with the hose, 9 years and it may have crystallised in important places.......

We didn't. With less than 2,000 miles there is not enough wear to expect any changes in clearances.

I thought I saw your tires sitting in their service department this morning but didn't see your bike. Should have tried to catch you while you were there. Maybe I can visit you Monday to grab my shoes.

I didn't realize it was going to be an all day affair, being there.
Yeah Monday is cool, and grab some coffee!

@Yves_atlanta

That is an entrance!

It is one of the few bikes my wife said I could put in the living room....LOL

Well as some of you may or may not know, I like to paint.

Here are some of the bodies I painted for my 900SSie.
982831
982832


I did one fluorescent yellow to match my Rossi leathers, and one for Bayliss.

Now I know these Corse fairings are pretty much irreplaceable.

So taking advantage of the pandemic, I talk to Michael at All Out Graphics to do my version of Casey Stoners championship Ducati.
Awesome guy, and very quick.
His website:
All Out Graphics

Here is what we started with:
All Out Graphics Stoner Replica

I liked this but wanted it the version like Stoners.
He made the mods and sent it to me.
I got a set of ABS plastic fairings (white), and started painting.
982833


Now the base coats done, I did Michaels, All Out Vinyl.
Top notch stuff, was really easy to lay on!
982835


982836


I just need it stop raining so I can finish a couple more coats of clearcoat, and I will be ready to ride, when they lift the shelter in place.
