Love in this case was represented by a new air filter. I guessed that she was probably still running her original one and figured with her favourite diet of dusty gravel roads being reasonably regular, it was probably time to spoil her.
First of all I had to take off some of her clothes (this how-to was helpful although I had done this before) and the air-box was soon uncovered. The trickiest bit is the fuel fitting under the tank but it is the same type as on the Connie so I managed to work it out ok with a bit of muttering and holding my tongue just right.
|Jeebus! The dust gets in everywhere!|
|All sorts of wildlife seems to get sucked in|
Ok, we'll stick with the plan and put the new one in:
All that remained to do was to button everything up and put the clothes back on again. She even fired up once the go-juice was reconnected!
But the fun didn't stop there! Today Mark brought around his bike and we not only did the air filter but also the plugs and the oil and oil filter too. Shed fun is nearly as good as riding fun.
