Yeah I'm slowly repairing the rust. Can't wait til its done!

I'll be interested in your progress.  The old Z cars sure are enjoying a cult resurgence.  Glad that many are being saved.

Me too.  Perhaps OT for the forum, but they're such awesome little cars.  So hard to find one not dissolving these days, and certainly at any kind of reasonable price.

I put a Speed Angel's screen protector on my '15.... nice product.

Although my display screen has faired just fine through the years so I'm wondering if it was necessary.... oh well, 1 more farkle to add to the list.

Ordered a Tutoro automatic oiler.  Looking forward to not needing to clean my chain several times a week anymore.

LOL, this is exactly what I’m doing in the next hour; no idea if needed, but saw it posted here, the farkle reflex kicked in and the screen protector is now in my hand. 🤪

I think millennials call it “fear of missing out”.

I might have to give them another chance and try their Nano-Glass version.  I tried the anti-glare a few years ago and hated it but from photos posted here, it looks like the nano -is absolutely crystal clear.

Why are you cleaning your chain several times a week?

It is very clear. I can't even tell it's there except for the edge of the nano-glass.

Found a use for the unused foot peg mounting holes on the FJ-09 side case brackets on my GT. Never have enough water on the road. Tested it today and doesn't interfere with my heel when I'm on the balls of my feet.

Because it gets crusted in salt and road grime.  Winter riding does have some downsides, unfortunately.

Was wondering the same thing - Am I missing something with these auto-lubers??  Why.  I spray wax on my chain and good for while.  However, i don't ride in anything but sunshine.

I ride a lot, year round.  Commute to work daily on sanded and salted snowy/slushy/wet roads.  Just a couple days take it from freshly cleaned and lubed to fully rust covered and crusty.  The rest of the bike rinses off fine, but the chain needs constant oiling.

Even under normal summer circumstances though I do a bare minimum of 50kms per day, so a 500km interval sees every two weeks.

I've gone through a bunch of chains over the years, and more aggressive lubing is a lot cheaper.

I just placed my order. I've been meaning to get a screen protector on mine for, oh, years. So here we go. Thanks guys. 🏍️
