02 October 08 ---------- 38,730 miles

Noticed a wobble (under acceleration only) the last time I rode and checked the torque of rear and front wheels, suspension, and axles with no discrepancies. I had checked the rear tire slowly, but this morning I spun it and watched the tread. I finally spotted a bulge on the left side of the tire, indicating some type of tread separation. Fortunately, I had a spare rim and tire on hand.

Tire Information: Dunlop D250 ---------- 17,230 miles ----------- 2/32 tread depth

12 January 2009 ---------- 43,976 miles ----------44K Service

Just another routine ho-hum service. :thumbup: Will probably need left front brake pads at the next scheduled maintenance (48K). The front tire will need to be replaced again at that time (will have 24K on it).

Lost one of the flagpole masts (and flag) on the highway when the set screw backed out. Had to order the entire pole and mount. :-( Will use a little loctite on the allen head set screws so they won't back out again!

New Flags

19 March 09 --------- 45,672 miles
Just received and installed new PGR and US flags from Time and Again Photos. They are silkier than the original cotton, and the seam stitching is better. Like Dave told me - abuse them for a while and let him know how they stand up.

48K service

4 April 09 ------------ 46762 mi

48K service performed a bit early. Replaced front D250 (22,597 miles) and had the left front brake pad set changed.

When I purchased the Wing I also bought a 3-year unlimited mileage maintenance contract for $900, covering all scheduled maintenance except brakes and tires. It was the best move for me, I have received $3,644.12 in service so far, with over 14 months to go!! :thumbup:

Oil and filter, coolant, brake and clutch fluid, and shaft oil changed.

Powdercoated Rims

24 August 09

:thumbup:Just picked up my newly polished and powdercoated rims from the tire installer. This should save a lot of time and effort that was required to keep up with the brake dust that eats into the rims (especially the rear). Will put them on as I wear out the current tires. I plan to buy front rotors so I'll have a fresh set of tires on rims to install as needed.

31 Aug 09---------- 62,080 miles ----------new tires

Couldn't wait - I had new D250s mounted on the powdercoated rims, added Dynabeads, and put them on today;). Went for a short test ride and the ride seems to be rock solid and smooth:thumbup:. Bringing OEM rims I took off to the powdercoater tomorrow.
