What did you do to your RMZ today?

Today I cleaned and regreased the linkage, swingarm, and shock bearings on my 08. I bought it used and was told it was barely ridden but I was surprised to find some rust on a few of the bearings. On half the bearings the needles fell out so that was a headache. But I got it all cleaned up and ready to go in about 3 hours.
Just waiting on a 756 rear and a new chain and sprockets to arrive to put those on. I already took the old stuff off and regreased the rear wheel bearings as well.
So what have you guys been doing to yall's bikes lately?

Checked the valves and they are still in spec, .004 for the intakes and .007 and .008 for the exhaust, which was the same at 22 hours lol.
Also I cleaned and re-oiled the air filter but this time I used belray liquid foam filter oil. That was a headache but I think it turned out better than the spray on stuff, as long as I didn't over apply it.
And finally I was able to give my bike a good cleaning (which I did before I checked the valves.) I've been so busy I haven't had time to clean it very well in a few weeks.
Now I just need to order a clutch lever and cable, fork seals, a front tire, and a back sprocket.
