I put the battery tenders on and the bike covers on.                        And then I looked out at the new snow. And I got out the skis and headed for the slopes. Seems like there is always one good day following any bummer day.

My forks have been good since I used the SealMate on it.  Have not put a ton of miles on it since, but so far so good.
is there any article on this forum related to this " SealMate "?
I did the forks seals a few months ago because the left one was leaking, now I see a seepage on that area

No articles, but there are some discussions here and there.  Pretty simple to use.  You can find them just about anywhere.  Amazon, eBAy or their website.  Here’s their video.

Finished replacing the camshaft sensor orings (intake and exhaust) with MOB rings. I'm pretty sure it was leaking from the top as well, I couldn't see in there very well, but replaced it anyways. Took it for a test ride, no more burning oil smell. Success!!

I need him to come over and do mine, too.
Ug, it is on my list, with lots of other things that need doing (like a first valve adjustment).

Installed the ST2 Smart Turn System module.  Total time to install was about an hour.  Pretty straightforward.  All I had to do was remove the left top fairing cover (next to the tank) and disconnect the harness clip to access the plugs.  Tapped into the switched power and the instructions had the correct wire colors for the GTR. 

Quick review:  Works exactly as advertised.  I didn’t test the lane change function, as most of my lane changes are pretty smooth, so I suspect it won’t detect it.  If you don’t turn after signaling, it takes about 20-25 seconds before it self cancels.  If the bike is just sitting stilll when you hit the signal, it stays on. Hopefully, those little rubber pads installed in the switch housing do not wear out.  I’ve read some reviews/complaints about that.  If that happens, I may have to go into the switch and disable it differently. 

I know that it’s much easier to just cancel the signals manually, and as religious as I am about doing that, every once in awhile I do forget.  I don’t want that rare occasion to be the one time some cager turns left in front of me.   :yikes:

Backed it out of the garage to let the Indian out for a ride and then rode the C14 back in the garage.

I did.  I said I would still have contact with it.  Sold it to a good friend who doesn't really have a good place to store it.  Heck, I may just sell it again.
