2013 Tech Days

Postby BMWGirl » Sat Nov 17, 2012 3:12 pm

As your new Tech Chair for 2013 - I'm working on some dates and ideas for the tech days. If you would like to host a tech day, please send me a PM.

I'd like to TRY to make the tech days, somewhat "tech specific" - of course anything can be done but maybe having something like "This tech day will be geared towards oil changes" and have some people there that can do demonstrations on oil changes and help each other out with learning how to do them on your own bike. 1 day for Tire changes; 1 day for Throttle body sync/GS911 reads/etc...

I need ideas and Hosts :D

Please send your thoughts!

Thanks in Advance,
Tech Tina :TheTina:

Okay - I updated the first post with dates, tentative dates and places. I need to confirm a couple of dates.

Also - Please send me some ideas for "themes" The first tech day at Mortons will be the Suspension theme - Keep in mind, you can do any work you want (with reasonable time of course) but if you have any suspension concerns, this is the time to bring your bike down!

I will also have....

1) How to change your oil...

2) Tire changing - tips and tricks...

3) Reading the GS911

Any other suggestions for themes of the tech days???

Thanks!
Tech Tina

good themes Tina - you might be able to double up on some themes: e.g.) Include transmission oil with oil change
Here are some other reoccurring needs:
-Tire Changing (with side bar on tire plugging and ‘pick up your bike)
-Valve-adjustments
-F-series overview (oil and valves, chain adjust)
-Break shoe replace/caliper rebuild
-Clutch and Brake fluid flush/change
-throttle body sync
