    First things to do with my new Lonelec cable?

    Good afternoon all, While killing time watching snow STILL falling in Canada, dreaming of my bike while self-quarantining like the rest of the globe, I decided to grab one of those Lonelec cables for linking up to the bike. Bit of an impulse buy, since I didn't have a dedicated plan to use it...

    Valve Check graphic I drew up to record your valve checks.

    The tolerances were for my 2015 R3R; always verify your specs from your manual. This is a Go / No-Go recording style, where I note the thickest feeler gauge that WILL go in, and then the next thickest one that WILL NOT go in. Let's you know you're somewhere between those two measurements.

    3 of 3 images that I drew up, based on the lift bracket my Dad welded up for me. It fits perfectly over the standard motorcycle jack we all likely have, and takes most of the weight off the oil pan. These measurements and associated photos in this gallery should make it easy to fab locally.

    Entire walkthrough of both wheel removal and installation on a 2015 R3R

    @Starmanut , yeah, I think you'll be fine with the wiggle trick. It really only took me a few tries and it slid right on. I think the string trick is a neat idea if needed, but I bet you'll be okay. If you're remotely concerned about your output / driveshaft being pulled too far forward...

    Entire walkthrough of both wheel removal and installation on a 2015 R3R

    Fair point, 1K9. I guess it depends on his miles...when I did my first re-lube last year, my bike only had about 10,000 miles on her, so I figure that stuff in there is pretty fresh, and only added a thin layer of Moly 77 to the output shaft and it's female receiver. Starmanut might be wise to...

    Entire walkthrough of both wheel removal and installation on a 2015 R3R

    @Starmanut , my pleasure! Re: the lube, if you look like you have a ton in there already, I wouldn't bother adding much more if any. It's tough to see from here, but just use your judgement. A tiny skim of moly on the end of the male shaft might make mating them a bit easier anyway, but...

    2015 R3R Rear Wheel installation video

    Thanks all! Glad it's well received, and hopefully helpful. It was an intimidating job the first time, and I was really surprised not to see any in-depth vids online. So, computer nerd for a living, figured it was time to make one. @Starmanut , that's awesome. :) @vzrDean1800 , he's not...

    Afternoon all! I received my new Avon Cobra rear tire yesterday, and the shop surprisingly got it installed on the rim for me in around an hour. I promised a follow-up video to my previous one documenting the entire removal process, so I took last night to film the entire installation of the...
