I did a short ride to Home Depot and to put the new AE front tire on the pavement what a different ride the first the 10mins then it I got use It.
Love those Grips. Are those Arlen Ness?I installed the new grips on the Sporty today.
Forgot how much a PIA cable throttle is! Gotta pull the air can and backplate just to get to the throttle. This showed me just how filthy the intake filter was. So ya, add on another notch in the ta do list.
Once i got the intake clean, cables set and all back together i ran the bike to test both switch clusters to make sure i didn't foul up something else in the process. All checked good.
BUT, I can't believe we have had this bike 2 years already, today was the first time i hit the horn...
OMG! I about fell out laughing at that stupid anemic sounding horn! I have heard mopeds with more "Move IT" in them that this POS! Barely a "mmeep".
Looks exactly like the horn on my Ultra and like the one on my old FX80. Both will ensure you of their presence!
