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


EXCELLENT SUGGESTIONS, ED!!!! Wow - I needed help with ideas - thank you!!

Our 2013 Tech Days are shaping up to be GREAT! Kudos to Tina for the pronto organization and finding terrific hosts. =D>
And thanks to all who stepped up to host, or who offered as well. Great way to help out the club!

Planning a swap meet/flea market for July, not in association with a tech day though.

We usually do a flea market at Beemers Uber Alles and I think George is going to do that again this year. I also think you can take things to the rally if you want to sell anything there too. Good suggestion, Ed - thanks!

Tech/flea market suggestion: Put a ad in buy/sell for what you are going to bring for sale to tech day and a one line pointer to the ad here in tech. This way even those who might not otherwise go to tech might go to check out the items they may be interested in. This is specially convenient with clothing items you want to try on before committing.

First time caller here..

Perhaps during the tire session we might include a brief discussion of tire hydro planning speeds..
