Mileage 59867 - Oil Filler plugs valves oil and filter change.

I need to prep the bike for the upcoming Virginia mapping trip. The oil filler cap is spinning in place again and needs to be resealed. It's been ages since I've checked the valves so that needs to be done and the plugs are also quite old.

Zumo 550 Button Repair

Zumo 550 Button Repair

The zoom in button on my ancient Garmin Zumo 550 GPS popped out. On ADVRider I had come across a post by a guy from the Netherlands who sold replacement button strips for these units. I bought the strips and have had them lying around here for ages now.

This evening, in a moment of clarity, I decided to try to repair the unit. I honestly thought it would be more difficult than it was. 

Check out the blog tab for a complete description of the process.
