It was time for the two year 1000 mile once over for the Z8.

Checked the valve lash and spark plugs. The lash was a little tight so they all got adjusted. The plugs looked perfect. The valve train looked spotless and the plastic chain guides looked fine as well. The engine turned over by hand very easily.  The bushings got greased and the machine got a bit of a cleaning. A general inspection shows everything in good order.

One of the bolts holding the netting in place fell out. Looks like I have to take off some panels to fix.

I wanted to add an oil/dipstick extension but it doesn't look like it will fit without bending some metal oil lines, something I was unwilling to do just yet. Any suggestions on how to do this safely?

I hope to add a marine grade charging port for easier tender hook-up. I just have to decide where to locate it. I'd like in it the dash but we'll have to see. Considering relocating the battery as well.

My 2015 has the rubber lines and I was always going to just use the 500's extension tube and stick but never got around to it cause I stopped checking it every ride...cause it's always full and clean. I was also considering one of those universal flex tube and stick-combos but that would have to be adapted somehow into the existing threads and seal well. IDK...Guess I'll just live with it for a while.

hey Guys,
when we bought our EX i didn't get the power steering because i was concerned about
reliability of elect. items in that kind of environment, not just CF, but any manufacturer,
but i saw how reliable they are so i wished we had it on ours.
well i decided to try one of SATV easy steer units, Man, it was so easy to install.
and what a difference. i also ordered the original mounting plate so i didn't hafta fab.
one up, just had to cut and weld the steering shafts the rest is bolt on.
wish i had done it sooner.

Differential oil changes at 1350 miles. An easy service compared to some of the other stuff.

Oil came out looking like new. Just a little bit of rubbings on the magnet.

I'm surprised at just how little oil goes into these things.  Maybe 16-18 ounces between the two of them.

Limb lifters. Help protect the windshield in those overgrown trails. :)
