Now as some of you noticed, not much has happened on the blog in the last two weeks. Simple reason: I've been on vacation in Cambodia. So, when I came back it was a slightly nippy 50 degrees Celsius less overhere in merry ol' Europe than in said Asian country. Of course this was the ideal moment to test the actual winter-proofing of the XS Triple Sidecar.
Unfortunately all the bad-weather motorcycling on the sidecar has showed a little flaw in the final drive, as clearly it filled up with water to a degree and once it had heated up a bit, it started to boil over. So a final drive oil-change is due rather soon. And I'll definitely have to come up with a better breather arrangement.
One of the other things was that the throttle cables could do with a bit of oiling and I think I should start investigating towards some proper K&N filters with a 63mm inlet diameter as the cheap ones are pretty rusty by now.
