Picked it up last night and had to truck it home. we'll I haven't rode in 25 years so I'm taking it easy. Got it off loaded this morning using the loading ramp at work and comming down the ramp I hear a squeeking sound every time I turn the handlebars..left or right. I'm thinking new bushings a little wear and it'll be ok.
well after about 5 min of riding on the grass at work I'm liking the bike I feel like I never stopped riding...life is good. I park it and go in to work. I'm happy.
All the guys from work are checking it out and My chest is pumped out a bit if ya know what I'm saying. Cem, a biker for a while said" dude the steering is way too stiff" so we get to looking... seems the idiot who assembled the bike screwed up! The clutch cable was not run thru the cable guide near the clutch on the handlebars where it passes down thru the tank assembly, when it went down towards the frame it was run under the ignition box and was pinching between the wires comming out of the ignition and the frame
. Dude to say I was pizzed was an understatement. I got less then 1 mile on the bike and I'm already wrenching. Then we noticed the speedo cable comming off the front wheel was not run thru the cable guide on the front fender..fixed that.
Not a great way to start I'll tell ya...
But aside from that I can't wait to get off work and do some riding and break her in some.
I'm gonna call the dealer and let him know about that crap assembly man he has. Had that clutch cable pinched hard....it could have been ugly!!!
