I adjusted my brake lever down, which changed my reservoir lever. Obviously that changed the fill level mark, is that an issue? The amount of fluid did not change, but if i try to add more it will spill out of the reservoir??? Thanks!

I really think you're fine as is. Like you said, it's the same amount of fluid, just sitting at a different angle. My CBR got new SS brake lines today so I just had the reservoir apart. As long as you have plenty of fluid covering the reservoir outlet hole at the base of the unit, the slight change in angle shouldn't matter. These are just my thoughts. I have virtually no mechanical knowledge so take my opinion for what it's worth!

Today I re-attached all the fairings after taking them apart to do a windshield swap. Lost a few push rivets to wear in the process. I then checked the chain (using the lift-off-sprocket method you guys told me about) and couldn't lift it off the rear sprocket enough to see any light. In the process realized that the alignment was off on the righthand chain adjuster so I counted threads and measured with a ruler and aligned as best I could. Ended up with ~3cm of slack.

I then went for a 25min ride around the area to pick a up a paper for the parents. Sadly family issues prevented me from going for a longer ride and threw a wrench in transporting it the 200mi from their house to mine. Thankfully working as a teacher means I get decent blocks of vacation so I'll work something out.

Off topic but remember that if your parents are getting old then MAKE them go to a doctor if they are having medical issues, even ones they say are minor but are persistent. Ounce of prevention vs pound of cure kinda thing.

I got my new Pilot Street Radials mounted today! It was a cold wet and windy day. The mechanic made sure and warned me about the brand new tires being slick. Said I probably shouldn't try and scrub them in today.

On the ride home, the bike handled like a whole new machine. The back was pretty flat in the middle on my IRCS. Now I can feel the much rounder tire really wanting to lean. The bike tips so much faster, but it feels stable once leaned over. The bike felt a little less stable in a straight line. Its going to be an adjustment. I cannot wait for the next sunny day!

Same size as stock. These tires were made for bikes like ours. Front is 110-70-17 and the rear is 140-70-17.
