This year, all registrations will be on a FaceBook Event.
The FaceBook event is located at: https://www.facebook.com/events/379923922059428/
SOOOOOO..... the purpose of this event is to help the most people and to get everyone an opportunity to socialize and meet fellow riders. May 12th is the date this year, after a few things that changed things around.
Folks, after you read below, if you are interested in coming, and registering, REGISTER HERE that you are coming, and what you are doing. Getting help, helping, drinking, taking pics, running the grill... whatever you plan on doing here.
We are gonna start at 10am, people can show up early if they want to set up, or if they want to help us get set up.
NOTE: The COPS will know about this event, so please follow the rules of the road on your way to and from and while you are in my neighborhood. Hate to have anyone get any tickets.
By popular request, we are putting together our Annual Spring Tech Day to help with basic maintenance and learning more about your bike. We have run these a few times in the past as well. Hopefully, we'll have good weather, but most likely, we'll have it rain or shine. We'd like to help you all make sure that your bikes are safe, prepped and street or track ready.
This year, we are continuing a SWAP Meet to the day as well. If you have spare parts that you'd like to sell or swap, bring them to the event and we'll see if we can help you get rid of them. If not, we can donate them or trash them for ya. (can't trash your tires though, take those home)
Welcome to SPRING!! This event is for Track AND Street bikes. We have done a couple of hundred bikes in the past and have had a bunch of helpers and drinkers as well last time.
What this is NOT!
This is NOT a mechanics garage, no breaking engines open, valve adjustments, etc... take that to many of the professionals on this board, or work with some of us one on one to help you another weekend.
Examples of work to be done:
Change Oil & Filter - bring oil & filter
Empty plastic milk, OJ, etc type containers, bring them for used fluids! (take fluids home with you)
Change & Balance Tires - bring fresh rubber (TAKE YOUR TIRES HOME, please!!) - If you wanna leave your tires here, I can dispose of them at $10 a piece - HINT, I don't wanna dispose of them for you)
Change Brake Pads - bring new brake pads
Change/Bleed Brake Fluid - bring high quality replacement brake fluid
Change Brake lines - bring lines, banjo bolts, and fluids
Adjust / Prep Chain
520 Conversion - Bring 520 chain, and 520 front/rear sprockets
Suspension Set-Up - Baseline Sag, etc...
Safety wiring your bike

Plus whatever simple items folks can think of that need to be done for the season. (track or street)
Feel free to come even if you are not in need of work, just to meet and perhaps help some of your fellow CLSBers!
