Introductions / Hi from Bilbao, Spain
« Last post by AdolfoGTR on Today at 02:17:48 am »
Hi everyone, I'm AdolfoGTR and I've been in this place from Spain. I own a GTR 1400 or Concours 14 as you call it there and I now have 76,000 miles, model 2011.
I know part of the inside of the Kawa, I repair and maintain it myself, now I have a clutch that I already have in the warehouse.
Greetings to all and I invite you to our GTR forum in Spain

Apologies, but my English is a translator ... I hope you understand ...
Greetings.

The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Been gone a while, but Need advice...
« Last post by tomp on Yesterday at 09:22:53 pm »
Once was a very active member here, but sadly, the C14 had to go.  I have found an 08, with 69K miles on it,  Body is in great shape, and never dropped, by looking it over closely.  I can get it for around $4K OTD.  It has a CF aftermarket exhaust (no name) and a Power Commander installed.  Also no specific history on valve checks and TPMS battery changes. 

Since I've owned an 08, I know how they should ride, but don't want to test this one until I know that it is worth buying.  SO... with this info, what is the consensus on purchasing?  Oh, new tires, good brake pads, no leaks in the suspension or engine. 

I know many C14's have 100-200K miles with no real problems, but have made a few mistake purchases in the past decade, and want to refrain from doing so again. 

Thanks for any input, as my birthday is Tuesday, and I may want to gift myself with it, if it deems itself worthy.  tomp  dd50

UPDATE....success!
I checked all three of the fuse boxes under the seat.  Everything was fine except for one 5A accessory fuse, which I replaced.  Being this is a retired police C14, there is another fuse box attached to the end of the two extra feet of wiring hardness that I had routed into the trunk. (No place else for it to go).  I'm sure it is in a more normal place on non=police versions.  Anyway, this box contained a well marked IGNITION RELAY.  I didn't have any on hand so I had Amazooon send me a few.  Replaced it and the darned kipass worked as normal.  Now I feel kind of bad for beating on it.   Once I saw it I had hunch that this was the culprit. 
I didn't fire it up yet because it started down pouring.  Hopefully this week I will get the fuel and air filter replaced. 
Thank you all for your expertise.

Accessories and modifications - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: Dunlop Sportmax Q3 PLUS

This review:https://ridermagazine.com/2014/05/02/michelin-pilot-road-4-sport-touring-tires-review/
says that the GT version on the pr4 uses a different architecture , a cross of bias ply and radial for more stability .
Hey, who doesn’t want more stability in a tire, right?

and that lies on "user installation/usage"... [...] by far, just make sure to fill and purge the hoses, and bleeder check valve prior and during use...

Yep, like with most things, the procedure and method is just as important as the equipment used.

A motion Pro bleeder is better than speed bleeders. I have no problem bleeding the brake or clutch with it.
https://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0143
Are you in Stone or Harrison county? I am in Louisiana about 120 miles from Biloxi. Might be able to get over there to help.

IMHO that is better on all aspects, than the expected outcome on speedbleeders/  don't get me wrong, they work for many people, but sometimes they don't... and that lies on "user installation/usage"... I don't use them, I bleed manually. Just ;ike my grandpa did.... takes time, but again, I ain't posting things about how someone "vacuuumed" my system, and I don't have clutch or brake function..  and not saying the S/B's made a differ, when people suck fluids from a master, to a slave bleeder.... (someone posted issues recently... I say force fluids back up to a master, as bubbles flow up, and forcing fluids upwards, moves them, and the bubbles.. to exit at tha top...)... mmmmkay?


by far, just make sure to fill and purge the hoses, and bleeder check valve prior and during use... no connection with the product, I just trust it much more

I'm in St. Francisville, 30 miles north of Baton Rouge. You are more than welcome to use mine but it is a cheap tool every rider should have. I  am starting 2 to 4 weeks of pt on Monday but should be free on weekends (but not this Saturday - track day.
