Psssst. It was full of oil Just kidding Sunshadesunshine229 wrote: Wow, that filter weighed AT LEAST 3 times heavier than the brand new one in the box.
The surprise was worth all of the aversion and b.s. that you guys fed me over that 24 hour period. And to think I was still out there working to find you that perfect bike......sunshine229 wrote: After finishing up the job and cooking dinner Mike & I headed to High_Side's house to show off the new beauty. Funny thing is that as I was doing the oil change he called our house and left a message saying
that he saw the matte blue Z750S's at the dealership and that they are a really good price and I should go buy one. Little did he know that I already had one in my garage....
Pulled up to their house and honked like mad and then gave the engine a quick rev as he was coming out the door. You shoulda seen the smile on his face when he saw me! (That's what good friends are for, eh?)
I couldn't agree more. What a great friend!sunshine229 wrote:Guess I'd better go make High_Side a margarita!
You totally beat me to it........ I was just about to post an update on the break-in period. Woohoo! Now I can go highway speeds!!!totalmotorcycle wrote:Great photos!
So, how is that brake-in period going? I know you just passed your 800km first stage...so what's it like to go to 6,000 rpm now? More power/torque? Does it want to keep going to red line?

Love that bike. I was just ogling one down at my local dealers last weekend - matte blue, just like yours - and thinking what a great looking piece of kit it was.
I didn't always feel that way. At first I thought it was an ugly sonofa... but quickly came round. When I'm rich enough to own a stable...
Enjoying the blog, too. Nice to get to know you a little after all this time. I hope you keep posting.
