My stepper motor did not come in last week as I had hoped. I was planning to pick it up last Saturday and install it Sunday but of course it arrived Tuesday instead. I won't be able to make it to the shop until this weekend. This delays my repair a week and has me manipulating the throttle to compensate for the poor idle. The bike runs fine at speed but the faulty stepper motor won't regulate the air intake at idle and cause it to stubble and stall. I'll replace it this weekend and hope it fixes the problem.
In the meantime, I've been ordering farkles online and today I received new footpegs from K&L Cycle.
A much more aggressive cleat to secure my feet while standing on the pegs as I explore beyond the pavement. These drop the pegs about an inch thus lowering my weight on the bike.
I mounted them right away and adjusted the shift lever, the brake lever seems good but I may adjust it after a ride or two. They look odd, not because they don't have rubber inserts but because they are so clean.
I really need to wash my bike sometime.
Maybe this summer, when the rain stops.
