A flurry of packages arrive in time for a lengthy initial preparatory and maintenance session. Besides the obligatory oil change, the bike needs an air filter. For some inexplainable reason, the five bolts that hold the air filter housing are 7mm hex head ?!!!? The chain also needed some attention. It had some light corrosion on select links, and needed a thorough cleaning. A messy job, but it looks and feels much better. I took it for a brief ride even though it was still not road legal without the rear turn signals.

Good thing I took the time to get to this filter !!
