Welcome back! It's not what you remember, the site is much less active than before. There are many members working to keep it going, so don't be too worried about it going away. Allow me to introduce myself: I am Father Pobasturd. I started out here as Pobasturd, but changed it when I got Ordained. Some here will tell you my Ordination is bullshit, it's not a reputable church, blah blah blah...Hey, I paid the fu
ing money and I have the documentation to prove it so they can kiss my ass.
Looks like I came on here just after you left so you don't know of me. There used to be a guy named Jonah on here who a lot of people say I reminded them of. Obviously, he pissed off lots of folks and said things that were unpopular. If that is so, than the resemblance is factual. I have mellowed out some since my Ordination, but not completely. You have been warned.
First order of business, you need to update you profile. We will assume you still reside in Georgia, but your bike info needs updating if you are going to be asking tech questions. 2004, if I recall, has the electronics upgrades, but is vulnerable to SVS
. When you get some decent weather to ride you may want to do a Sea Foam shock treatment if the bike has a lot of miles on it. Also, Yamaha discontinued the Road Star from the line-up since you left, we are still getting factory parts and there are still some aftermarket places helping out. But, if you want, say, a new aftermarket exhaust system, your choices are getting a little slim. And I hope like hell you didn't pay much for that bike, 'cause they are going for next to nothing and getting cheaper all the time.
Anyway, it's good you are back, we need fresh meat. Still plenty of tech-critters on here, may take you a little longer to find out what you need, but it's here.
