If you're a thrifty soul like I am (notice I didn't say cheap), you'll want to save some dough by doing your oil change yourself. It's really easy, doesn't take a lot of muscle or time, and you can spend what you save by doing it yourself on some toys for your bike. Having previously purchased the Honda Service Manual (I figured it oughta come in handy for more than just an oil change), I purchased my supplies to do my own oil change at 4000 miles. I bought the Honda oil filter wrench because you can put a 3/8" drive ratchet on it to loosen or tighten the filter. It's not cheap, but it's a good one-time investment for your bike. If you've ever changed the oil and filter in a 4-wheel vehicle, it's the same concept, everything's just in a different place. Following the Service Manual, here's what I did. All sections italicized are direct quotes from the Honda Service Manual. NOTE: Change the engine oil with the engine warm and the motorcycle on its side stand to assure complete and rapid draining. Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes to warm the oil. Remove the oil dipstick. This provides an air gap for the oil to flow freely while draining. Locate the oil drain plug. It is on the left side, at the bottom of the engine. There is not enough space to use a ratchet, so I used a 17mm combination wrench. The open end included in your bike's toolkit will work fine. Loosen the drain plug, then place a drain pan under the drain plug. Remove the drain plug. Let the oil drain into the drain pan. Now the manual states: With the engine stop switch "OFF", push the starter button for a few seconds to drain any oil which may be left in the engine. NOTE: Do not operate the motor for more than a few seconds.
Motor Oil Place the bike on the center stand (not the kick stand) The Drain Plug and the Dipstick for the motor oil are located on the right side of the bike. Place a drain pan under the Drain Plug and remove the plug with a 17mm socket or wrench. Lancepowersports.com A small spring and Screen Type Oil Filter will also pop out. Place these two items off to the side and wash them clean by flushing them with new 10W-40 motor oil. (If you keep the dipstick out of the motor, it will drain the oil faster) Let the motor oil drain until only a few drops fall every few seconds. Put the cleaned Oil Filter and the spring back into the engine as shown to the left. If done incorrectly, the filter will not be efficient in collecting dirt and sludge from the engine. Screw back on the drain plug using a torque wrench. The recommended torque for this bolt is 15 lbs/ft. Lancepowersports.com Using a funnel, pour 0.75 quarts of 10W-40 Motor Oil into the engine. We recommend using non-synthetic oil for the first oil change to help the engine break in properly. After the first oil change, feel free to use synthetic oil. Check the oil with the dipstick. Place the dipstick in the motor but do not screw it in. Pull it out and make sure that the oil reading is within the hash-marks, then add or drain oil accordingly until it is. Screw in the dipstick and run the bike for a minute or two and check the level to make sure that you have the proper level. Lancepowersports.com
Softail Oil Change From time to time I see question on the forum regarding doing an oil change on a Harley and more specifically about doing a scavenging oil change on a Softail. Since there didn't seem to be a good thread on doing an oil change with pictures, I thought I would write something up. This oil change was done on a 2001 Fat Boy. So, some of the tools and procedure may be different for your specific application. Tools Motorcycle lift 1/4" Allen head socket or long Allen head tool (for engine oil and transmission oil drain plugs) 3/8" Allen head socket or Allen head tool (transmission oil fill plug) 3/8" drive ratchet wrench 6" long 3/8" drive extension 3/8" drive universal joint (may or may not need depending on bike location on lift) 1/4" drive ratchet wrench T27 Torx head socket or torx head tool (primary cover screws) T40 Torx head socket or torx head tool (primary oil drain plug) Oil filter wrench Oil catch tool for filter (optional) Oil drain pan (preferably 2) Flashlight 3/8" Fuel / Oil line removal tool (Scavenging oil change ONLY) Clear tygon tubing (Scavenging oil change ONLY)

iOS 6 vs. Ice Cream Sandwich: The Ultimate Comparison iOS 6 is coming soon(ish) to an iPhone and iPad near you. But how does Apple's latest and greatest compare to the latest and greatest out of the Android camp, a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich. Gladiators, step forth! For the record, this is not a review. There will be no review until we have spent some quality time with the final version of iOS 6. This is a look at how these two stack up on paper in 10 key categories. Apps Apple: 650,000 apps. 225,000 for iPad. That's one ginormous ecosystem. Android: Android is currently at 450,000 apps for Android. While most of those will work on tablets, the number of apps that have been specifically optimized for Android tablets pales in comparison to iOS. Maps Full size Apple: Apple finally has its own Maps, which is a move that surprised no one, since Apple has been buying up mapping companies for years, and because Apple and Google aren't exactly getting along smashingly. From what we can tell, it's an elegant solution, with plenty of overlayed information, traffic updates, and yes, finally, turn-by-turn directions (narrated by Siri). It also has a 3D flyover mode (with vector-based graphics) which looks great, but it raises a question: Since none of the iPhones have 4G LTE radios, would 3D maps even be practical when you aren't firmly tethered to Wi-Fi? This, however, may be a non-issue, as 4G iPhones will likely be out in time for iOS 6 to drop. Big notable omissions: transit directions, bike directions, walking directions, and Street View.

P R O D U C T I N F O R M AT I O N ENGINE The heart of the new Daytona is its new engine, which brings more performance and a subtly new character too. The key change is the wider bore and shorter stroke dimensions, allowing a higher 14,400rpm rev limit to gain more power and a broader spread of usable revs. Facilitating this is the new block, separate from the upper crankcase and with ceramic coated aluminium bores so it can be made stronger to cope with the higher pressures. Power is up 3PS to 128PS (126bhp, 94.2kW), peaking earlier at 12,600rpm and revving on for longer. The torque maximum is 2Nm higher at 75Nm (55.3lb.ft, 7.63kgm), with an increase across the rev range. CHASSIS The new Daytona 675 frame uses fewer sections in its construction for a cleaner, stronger design and has sharper geometry and a shorter wheelbase to make full use of the revised mass distribution. The rear subframe, constructed from high pressure die cast aluminium, not only looks fantastic but contributes to the slim sharp design at the rear of the bike. SILENCER The exhaust system is a compact and purposeful new unit that neatly sits beneath the engine. This helps to centralise the bike’s mass and move the weight forward, key factors in making the new Daytona even more agile and yet more stable at speed too. TRANSMISSION The transmission features a new slip-assist clutch to provide a lighter lever action and help prevent rear wheel hop under heavy braking. This is aided by the engine management which opens the throttle butterflies to reduce engine braking.
Here at T3 we specialise in the Triumph Daytona 675, why, because we race them. Whilst many may think that the bench mark set by racing has little to do with the road, we would disagree. Much can be learnt from racing as this is the hardest test of all and lessons learnt here translate to a better all-round bike, whether it is what parts prove to be the most vulnerable in a crash to what tyres compliment the bikes chassis we have tried and experienced them all. In the following pages you will find a list of products that we either distribute or manufacturer ourselves, we hope you will find them of interest. T3 Race & Road Exhaust System ‘Bad Boy’ Exhaust System So named by our rider ‘Young’ Ross Walter because of its awesome sound. Whilst not considered the most attractive system this pipe grows on you and in the end you love it, not just for it very unique sound but for it attitude and the way it makes you feel every time you start her up. Developed by T3 and Renegade exhausts this item is available exclusively via ourselves and guarantees more mid range grunt than the more highly priced competition with no loss of top end power (up to 7bhp between 8 & 10,000 rpm). The system comes with a modification to your existing down pipes, link pipe and can in either titanium, Carbon (only with down pipe modification) and Stainless. Please note that this system is available with baffle for road use.
