I just purchased an 01 Roadie, that is right at the 16000 mile mark, if I remember correctly in the owners manual, the 16,000 mark has a variety of things to check on.
I'll be tackling those, and I'm open to any other suggestions that folks have.
I've changed the oil to Mobile One V-Twin, and a K&N oil filter.
I've changed the stock air filter in the stock air box, out for a K&N as well. One of the PO
's(only two I'm pretty sure) disconnected the crankcase vent from the box already. It'd been nice, if they'd of plugged the hole in the airbox as well. God only knows how long that's been breathing freely.
I'll get to the gear lube change in the next few weeks....anybody have a favorite they want to recommend? The V&H
's are going to make getting to it interesting.
The bike seems to of had the tranny recall done. The PO said it was done, and there is a punch mark by the ID
I've read on here about the possibility of a bolt coming loose on the front belt drive sprocket(early Road Stars). I have a Clymer manual coming, and hope to make whatever upgrades to this that are needed. Any fixes, suggestions or pointers, are appreciated. Part numbers?
The other thing I noticed, was something about the shaft on one of the oil pump gears breaking. How difficult a job is this to rectify before it becomes an issue?
The frame still looks good where the shock mounts to it. Wire brushed it a bit, and shot some Hammerite paint on it. Seems to catch all of the road debris kicked up by the front tire.
Last but not least. The neutral light just started to want to work overtime(like, all the time when the key is on), and the side stand kill switch quit working. Is this just a side stand kill switch issue? Finding neutral and pulling in the clutch isn't really a problem when starting, but I would like to fix it. Anybody else had to deal with this?
Thanx in advance for any input.
