@amgtech I managed to get it, just couldn't remember what specific combo worked next time I hopped on after taking pictures. After looking at the manual, it seems it's probably just a kind of shitty button that's hard to press with gloves.
@barnie You're welcome. I try to do it as often as possible. The dealership is family owned, run by a father and daughter. They are incredibly nice, and incredibly competent. I want them to stay in business for a long time. For anyone in the Chicago area, Rich's Yamaha (who also sell Genuine scooters) in Lockport is a great place to do business with. There is actually a dealership closer to me, and I have nothing bad to say about it, but I really like the people at Rich's.
@wrong-wheel-drive I get it, yesterday was similar for me. I thought I was in for around 4k, which would still be big for me, but our route was sort of open ended, I'd never done it, and my buddy undersold it (as usual, haha).
My son had one and the rubber mounted windshield kept getting loose, if this one has the same mounting keep eyes peeled. he ended up replacing mounting with solid bolts and spacers, and getting a larger aftermarket one
@thejwt I’d love to take it off your hands but the shipping would pretty much match the purchase price. Plus I live in a crappy location for motorcycles - weather and scenery is nice but traffic is miserable everywhere. Looking for a convertible instead.
VTX1300c or VTX1800c. 1.3 liter or 1.8 liter water-cooled V-twin, respectively. Later ones are fuel injected and fantastic values if you want a classically-styled cruiser without the Harley stigma, lack of power, and maintenance woes.
@beefchips They are really good looking bikes. This one has a tiny weep from the head, but it’s not a substantial amount. Aesthetics are on the list to fix as she needs it, but I’m bad a finish work so it’ll be mechanics first.
I did almost fry it a couple years ago with what turned out to be a bad seal around the sprocket. I replaced the oil pan gasket, shifter seal, oil sensor seal and a bunch of others before I found the right one.
It only really leaked when riding so it was hard to nail down and got lucky during an errand and noticed a couple drips under it after sitting for 10 minutes while in the store. Checked oil and it was below the dipstick, luckily I was at a farm store so I ran back in and she drunk 2 quarts of oil! Headed straight back home and started troubleshooting.
@adversemartyr Lol! Been there, but I just live in the suburbs. One if the reasons I love my scooters, us the only twisty roads we have, are neighborhoods. I can bomb through a twisty subdivision doing 30, and be all grins.
