Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Well. . . .


Got back to the shop around 2

Someone came and fetched me about 3:30 to inform me that my bike ws leaking gas

A lot of gas

Shut of the fuel, and let it sit while i finished some things up.

Went outside to check it out, turned on the fuel, hit the stater and viola!


The starter stuck.


So, its sitting at the shop and im fetching it with the truck after work tomorrow.

Dont care, $500 bike


Starter or solenoidvand clean the debri from the needle valve.

And ride.  :happyrider

Sometimes it just pays to let someone else FIX STUFF.  :pop

Someday, I'm gonna learn that.  :banghead

i cant hunker down for long enough to do a whole lot, and i was already taking it down to get the tire put on, ($105 + 35 change and balance dunlop 150 80 16)

and since ive known these guys for a long time, ( since i bought my first street bike at 14)

figured what the hell, they have the parts on hand and it had to be either the stater or the solenoid,

besides, im lazy.

upside, the wife didnt even complain, might have even encouraged it.  :crap
