    Wrench & Ride & "Test Ride" - TW Tech Day - Sat. Oct. 3

    It's about time for another SF Bay Area and Beyond TW Tech Day!

    - Got a Lizrdbrth cooler, kickstarter kit, new rear spring, new chain & sprockets, or any other TW mod that you need some guidance and assistance with?
    - Interested in taking a test ride on my recently completed TW226 6 speed project bike?
    - Want to meet some of your fellow NorCal TW200Forum nutjobs in person?
    - Don't have a TW yet, but might be interested in getting one?
    - If so, come join us for some wrenching, some watching, some riding and some laughs.

    Here are the past Wrench & Rides:

    SF Bay Area TW Tech Day - "Wrench & Ride" - January 25, 2014
    Second "Wrench & Ride" TW Tech Day - March 15
    Third Wrench & (probably no) Ride - TW Tech Day - July 12
    Fourth Wrench & Ride - TW Tech Day - November 29

    Let me know if you are interested, have any questions or need additional information.

    Put me down for a test ride!

    If I can get my 68mm Wiseco installed by then we can compare the 226 to my 202.

    I'm jealous I wish i had a mechanic in my neck of the woods. I need to do the lower gasket and I'm a bit nervous to take on the job.

    Tony, I am going to predict that your 202 will be 89.380531% of my 226 (. . . . until I shift into 6th gear !).

    I will be interested in your impressions after your test ride.

    TopPredator, I am sorry that we can't help you you out.

    Tony (elime) replaced Bananachunks' base gasket at one of our earlier events and even offered a 90/90 warranty on his work - 90 feet or 90 seconds, whichever comes first !

    Things I've been sitting on: LED signals, oil cooler, fork boots, grips, clutch springs. Can do all, none, in-between. Checking the calendar but I intend to be there!

    TW-Brian - I just replaced my dash turn signal bulbs with the green 32* LED bulbs on both TW's. I now can add this expertise along with wheel balancing for the Oct 3rd Wrench & Ride. Let me know if there will be room in the garage/shop for the balancer, dielectric grease, and some cream puffs.
