Make up some excuse "new cams must be to much for the bike". Who knows. All I know is it happened in front of my dad one day and it opened up a whole new set of jokes. He use to give me a hard time about riding a Honda shadow 750. Then I got a bigger newer bike and he had nothing. Then it wouldn't start so now its "hold on, we have to push Travis to get him started" or something like that.
