Time for a small update of shall I say a tool recommendation.

Ever since I had got my new tires I was keep to have the rear tire aligned spot on. I found out there are a couple of methods, the cheapest is string method. But the results can be a bit inaccurate. Here is a very good video from MC Garage on a few of these methods.



I decided I will look at eBay/Aliexpress for any cheaper versions of the tool showed in the video and sure enough, Chini bhais are making something cheaper.

I ordered from this seller.

The tool arrived a few days ago and this weekend I tried it. The tool does not come with the spoke. I had to go to the nearest cycle puncher repair guy and he gave me a spoke for free.

This is what the tool looks like set up on the motorbike.

You simply look at the top and eyaball the spoke for being parallel to the chain links.

Mine was a few turn out to the left. Once done I rechecked at the chain tensioner marks which is the most common method to align rear wheel. I would say the marks are quite close but I would have never got to the same accuracy since the exhaust does not allow the same viewing angle on the right side.

Another little job finished today. The brake fluid was urine yellow and perhaps never changed. Drained all the fluid and poured in some new and bled the brakes. This is something I do religiously on all my automobiles once every 2 years.

Also removed the front cowl today to check why my flashers are not working. I could hear a click in the relay but no action. Also removed some non OEM wiring spliced into the harness by previous owner. It is beyond me why would an owner want his perfectly good harness to be compromised by getting it spliced with a view of adding useless accessories. But anyways, seems any relay is bad so now hunting for something that fits in the harness without any splicing.

Today wrapped up the last little bit of work needed on my bike. The blinkers on my bike were not working and I suspected it was the usual flasher relay that was bad. I checked online for good used ones and they were rather expensive. One Sundays ride one of my riding pals who has a CBR 250 R also mentioned he got his flasher changed. I thought it would be a longshot but still asked him to whatsapp me images of his flasher. And sure they looked close except the part numbers numbers were different. Today I walked to the nearest Honda dealers and bought the relay unit and sure enough it dropped right in. The only thing I had to reuse was the rubber collar that holds the relay with the cowl since the new one was one or two mm smaller.

I'm leaving you with images of the part I bought from Honda. I am sure this relay is the same that is used in a lot of Honda bikes of that era, the Fireblades, the VFRs...gotta love Honda for their engineering consistency and vendor continuity.
