Yesterday gordonmessmer and I changed the air filter, oil and oil filter on my bike. Today a coworker came over and helped me on the rather trickyoverhead valve adjustment and throttle body sync. The bike runs like a dream now. I don't think that it's ever been that smooth. The throttle response is clean too. The best part? I saved over $400 doing the work myself (with help, thanks guys!)

In the end it took a while, but the work itself wasn't that hard to do. I think that I'll do my own work as much as I can from now on. It's such a huge savings and I end up knowing more about how the bike runs so I can keep it running better.

Now if only the factory manual didn't suck quite so much :P
