Howdy, I'm Zebulon from Georgia, USA. I recently bought a '07 Road Star 1700, my first bike, but immediately started having trouble with it, ie, won't start.So I've spend the last week troubleshooting why I couldn't get it running. The forum has been a big help, and youtube of course. It only had 7100 miles on it, prior owner (my step dad) had let it set up for two years without draining or treating or winterizing. Pulled the carb
off this weekend and have it in my shop, float was good n stuck, so cleaned out the float bowl with some carb cleaner, and am waiting on a new bowl o-ring and float pin to deliver so I can put her back together. Was a bit daunting at first, but some bits, like changing the spark plugs and pulling off the tank, are heckin lot easier than workin on my truck. Fun times. All this work, and I ain't even riden her yet. I'm chomping at the bit to ride, and already got so many ideas from all the posts in here on things I wanna change on it, like getting rid of the AIS
and moving the fuel pump...or just going to grav feed. Anyway, that's me.
