What pissed you off today...

Seen it on a few forums...thought i'd start one here, as it has been abit boring on here lately...
So today while riding to work, my clutch cable snapped on me
No bother, luckily have a spare one at home, so will fit it tommorrow.
What really pissed me off is, when going home afterwork at 1a.m I had to push it out the yard and couldn't turn the steeering...shit wtf is obstructing it.
Face mask and helmet on, started to get hot and bothered . Eventually took my melmet off and after 5mins of messing around, I realised that some knob, had turn the steering adjuster to 8

Happened about a month ago too but that time i fell off, getting out of the yard .
makes a note to self to always check setting before leaving work....I made a note the first time though but as you do, I forgot today

Cruising around middle of nowhere in Iowa. Stop for ice cream and buddy noticed oil coming from my fairings. Somehow plug in cover by starter fell out....luckily buddys parents was few miles up
A gravel road and he found a coolant temp sensor same threads that fit and got me home.

turns out you weren't wrong buddy......Was replacing the clutch cable this morning,with the one I had bought on ebay ages ago.
Turns out it's the wrong one the end of the cable won't go in the hole in the sprocket cover

Are 600 and 750 clutch cables differant?

Now i have to leave extra early and take the car to work

Blowing my fork seals. Then calling the dealer to find out its not covered under warranty, however that stupid extended warranty ($1500) does cover it, but doesnt take effect until the original 1 yr warranty is over, which is in a month.
