Yep! Those were the days. Set the points, check tappets, change oil and filter. Job done.. . . When I raced a 1981 750F in 1982, my first full season, I raced it ten days in sprint races, running three or four classes a day and I ran it in two four hour, one six hour, and one eight hour endurance race. Literally nothing needed attention the entire season. I just changed oil and tires and maybe plugs. With the help of a friend we rebuilt the engine at the end of the year - we found virtually no unusual wear.
None of this plugging into diagnostic terminals; pumping fluid through an ABS system for a three hour bleed; struggling to set the TFT dash with a larger manual than a 1980s video recorder; no struggling with CATS to change a can - we just drilled holes in the OEM or twisted the baffle out; AND none of this throttle-by-wire crap that makes it next to impossible to do a DIY quick action twist grip replacement.
BUT, we have some friggin' great bikes now!!
