October 10 2016 - 34580 miles
Bike has been acting strange. Occasionally acts as if it has momentarily run out of fuel for an instant, the immediately picks up and goes again. Found broken TPS wire wire under the seat. Same wire previously broke and I soldered it in 2014. Re-soldered it today and added a 3 inch extension wire to it so it will have a little slack in it when I access the battery. The original problem with this wire was caused by a vampire clip being used on it too close to the plug leaving only 1/2 inch of wire to work with. Hopefully the extended piece I added to it today will keep it from breaking again.
Also cleaned and tightened battery terminals today.
Also, forgot to post on August 7, 2016 that I changed the oil and filter, Rotella T6 oil and a NAPA gold vtx1800 motorcycle filter.
I pulled the dipstick today for a look at the oil which now has a little over 3000 miles on it and it is clean, looks almost like new oil.
