Having been a rider/enthusiast for more than 40 years, Thought I would join in cause I found a great thread via google about the handling of this particular model. Wow, thought perhaps a carb clean and some regular maintenance would get the girl back in the hustle. How wrong I found out I was. Looking to convert to a street fighter cause I do love the fenders *(hates sand, dirt, rain all over my front and mostly my back while riding) so thought I would look around and see what I could find. The FIRST READ article was very informative and funny too. Good advice, which most often folks choose to ignore FREE advice mostly I think cause they like paying for information maybe? I dunno. Anyway just a short introduction to say hi.
