Did some work on my bikes today. Rewired part of my soft tails electrical. Fixed an annoying rattle from a loose speedo and housing. Changed a few bulbs. Still gotta change the oil and various things but every time I do stuff like that I'm glad Im able to do myself. Not just for my bank account. Don't want to know what any dealers charge for basic maintenance. I thought u bought a bike to save money. Tell yourself that when the dealer hits u for 500 range for the maintance. Yamaha charged me that for maintenance on a tw200. With a coupon. It was only 450.....hell with that. On new tech bikes truthfully even if your a good wrench there's stuff that's too risky to do. Lots of wires and components each one could become a potential problem if a mistake is made. Only fuel injected bike I would ever buy are Harley Davidson. They know what a legendary twin they got and haven't made it overly complicated. Easy to put a carb on them. Still among the simplest and easiest motors to work on. I got an evo Harley. When it comes time to rebuild it the ego doe sent scare me. The old 350 Chevy in my camaro looks complicated next to my Harley motor. Lol. Nothing but respect for companies that still make bikes owners can work on. Dang this was too long.
