Soak for a few hours before install.



NOS steels from ebay.





I went ahead and got some springs as well. The difference between stock and the EBC ones are about a 1/8" or so in height. The lever doesn't feel any heavier though, so that's a plus.





Unfortunately things didn't go to plan on re-assembly. I didn't count how many steels I installed assuming that the ebay ad was correct on the number listed. Apparently I got a free one, but didn't know it, and until I removed the side cover for the 4th time and pulled everything back apart did I realize what happened. A 20 minute job took about an hour and a half due to my ignorance. Always count your fibers and steels. Always.

To further my issues, the crank seal on the side cover decided to stop sealing. On my first test ride, oil began to leak heavily out of the points cover. Good news is the seal is cheap, and the clutch worked flawlessly. Bad news is that my countershaft seal is leaking, so I will be replacing that in the next day or two to get things nice and oil tight for good.

2014 Hog Feed at The Joint - Part 1

The Joint threw it's annual pre-Sturgis party called the Hog Feed this past Sunday.  This was the 22nd year.  This year wasn't as wet as last year, but it did rain a little.  I rode my Sportster.

The event drew a good size crowd, which wrapped around the nearby streets.  While this event definitely attracts the bagger crowd, there were a lot of cool bikes in the mix.

I know some of these photos look like they were taken on different days but the clouds were moving fast.  One minute it was sunny, the next it was cloudy, then sunny, then it rained, then sunny again.

My bike and I got a little wet.

The event starts at noon and there is free food at 2pm (hence "Hog Feed").  I skipped the chips & potato salad but couldn't pass on the cornbread.

There's live music and vendors.

Pie Essentials was selling their wares out of their piemobile again.

Donnie Smith also hosted a ride-in bike show, Authority Stunts put on a stunt show, and there were some bike games (slow ride and weenie ride).  I only stayed for a few hours so I don't have photos of everything but I've got enough for a few posts of bikes and stunting.

Long Beach Cycle Swap (random shots)


There's the monthly sea of Stockers and Baggers. A tide that comes in through the port of Long Beach approx every 30 days, high tide lasts for about 6-8 hours and then dissipates again... 

Through it all there's always a keeper or two, the rest are (how do I put this delicately?) "too short" to keep. (that's what she said.) This month was pretty average, I think there was an equal part exodus due to Born Free happening last month (and burnout) v. we're still partying like it's 1999!!! going on. I got some good shots and I actually saw some bike that I must have missed at Born Free last month (because EVERYONE was there right? maybe not.) I'll post them up over the next few days.
