I really went over my bike today and did a little of everything. Removed plastics, seat, changed oil and filter, drained engined ice and put in new, really cleaned the chain and inspected, pulled the gauges/cluster to replace a burnt out low beam silver star, put in the pull pins on the front of gas tanks and the are a little loose, may need slightly bigger and thicker washer and then I took the old honda polish to everything. Once I was done staring at her and broke the trance I turned out the light in the gararge and realized that my blue gauges are no where near as brightly aluminated as when they were new. I keep her dry, clean and all but has anyone else experienced this? Oh, and a few pics of my day with the little blue mule! Not to dirty for a 2004!
