I didn't fix the speedo, or the tank. I spent the weekend fixing the front brakes. They were dragging and getting worse. Holy cow! It was worse than I thought. It feels like its gliding down the road now.

I changed the pads and while servicing the caliper I couldn't push the piston back in because of the hose collapsing. It was terrible. I also did some productive (but not mpg adding) activities. Like cleaning the garage.

I also got a deep cycle battery, roughly 88 Ah. If I have time I will wire it up this week and do the tank and speedo next weekend.


Edit: It says 65 ah, but based on the reserve capacity I get 88. Based on other 29 series batteries its higher than 65. A lot closer to the 88 I got.
