My winter projects so far

have consisted of:
New fuel filter, air filter and antifreeze for the Hurricane.
New air filter, plugs, and valve check on the 919.
New plugs, air filter, valve check, carb sync and cam chain tensioners for the Hawk.
I rebuilt the F3 last year so it's all good.

The most difficult one of the bunch is the Hawk. There's a lot of fairings to come off the Hurricane, but it's easy stuff and pulling the tank is a breeze. The 919 is naked and exposed, so not too bad except extremely tight valve cover clearance. The Hawk is not bad, just time consuming, cramped and steals your patience away.

The rear tensioner was on it's way out, and the cam timing was one tooth off on the intake. I guess I caught it just in time. Everything went back together well and it sounds good.

None of the valves on the 9 or the Hawk were out. Good thing, I hate pulling cams.

Now I wait for warmer weather.
