    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    Talk about simple newbee F-ups. I got a free non starter bike because, the starter cables were reversed. WOW that was so laughable.

    Chuck, thanks for that. If the carb cleaning doesn't cut it I'll have my buddy take it to him.

    Dead simple, everyone above except the oil leak comment guy (there’s always one) is correct. Is it by chance the 1200S model? My dad had one back then, dual plug heads, dual front disc and adjustable suspension with small dials on top of the forks. Kinda/sorta been looking for one of those as i get older and seem to be wanting to relive my youth. Raced a 2000 Trans Am WS6 with it and i smoked him....until he shifted into 2nd. I took the motorcycle endorsement test on that bike.....

    Just hope the oil leak comment didn't jhurt anyone's feelin's. Most of my lifetime when Harleys were mentioned there was always a smart azz oil leak comment close by. Good luck rich, hope you knew I meant nothing by it.
