Maybe it would be best to paint it lemon yellow.

or maybe "engine case" red?

I do miss having a huge, stupid looking fairing or windshield some days. Makes riding a long way much more comfortable and makes rain and cool weather much easier to deal with.

I did another oil change, even though I had done one when I got it, but I figured now is as good a time as any so that I can pile on the miles this summer. I had neglected to do a transmission oil change though "I know, tisk tisk.... I opened up the drain plug to a very un welcomed sight, milky white oil. It's good to have a network of motorcycle minded friends though, and a few beemer gurus at that. It didn't really make sense to me how moisture would enter the system, until kanticoy pointed out that the tach cable boot was known to fail, allowing water to run straight down the cable and into the trans. That's exactly what the issue was I believe, especially considering I don't know how long it's been since the last trans oil change, and it rode home 10+ hours in the back of a truck from barber in a hurricane.  He also pointed me in the direction of an "improved boot" that is available, so one is on order.

The driveshaft and final drive also got a fresh helping of oil, so she should be good to go.

Point me to that improved boot!  I've got a new tach cable on my bike but can't remember if the boot comes with it or not.  I replaced my cables 10 years ago when I got the thing.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I need to order up all fresh cables at some point as well.

I don't think the fairing looks ugly clear. I actually think it is the best looking large fairing I have seen. But then I am not a fan of big fairings.

Milky oil is never fun to find. What an odd place for water to get in.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

The odd thing is he never checked his transmission oil.  ::) LOL
