Answer bdcw

Black Dog makes the best plate and center stand combo out there-period.
Check them out @ blackdog.com. I might be wrong on the URL, but you will not be disappointed. Yeah, the stock plate is junk...

That is Sweet-Great Bike

I hope the newer camheads are as capable over the long haul. Comment on that Mobil 1 15/50. I had a seal leak that started tracking down to the bottom of the starter at 9K ('12GSA). It started...

Thanks to all. Got it buttoned up yesterday. I used the zip tie trick to help get the yoke on the output shaft. It took more than a few tries to get the boot on properly. The swing arm first...

Thanks for the pic. I used a hard plastic wedge to get it moving reward, then did the rest with a drum brake spoon. Slight grab at the 12:00 position on all crosses. The pain is getting the boot...

Shaft Removal

Thanks. Every other pic I've seen has folks releasing it from the other end. I'll get some wood and soft cloths and have a go at it. I tried to raise the swing arm parallel to the floor to take the...

Question '12 GSA Drive Shaft Removal

Just hit 20K the other day and decided to pull the shaft out to have a look. I lowered the final drive at my 6K service to check the "state of the union" so to speak. I cleaned and Molly pasted the...

Brake Failure Light

Same thing on my '12. It started acting up @ 16k. I've changed the brake fluid myself x 2. I always light up the ABS afterwards, then rebleed. I pulled the front sensor, ran the wire looking for...

Mid 30's in VT. So, with 18K and change on the '12 GSA, it was time to check the valves (haven't moved) and change the oil. That was today. Tomorrow I'll pull the drive shaft to have a looksie, clean...

Try This

'12 GSA. Same problem. I can only guess that water made its way to the fuel pick up point. Ever look under the cap after a wash? Bad design. I check mine all the time after extensive rain or after a...

Same Issue

Someone else can chime in here. But, I'll tell you what worked for me. Mine rattled too, from 3800 on up under hard acceleration, then again a but coming off the throttle. Finally invested in a...

Counterbalance Seal

Had the dealer check it out in the parking lot. He said all signs point to the above. Said he'd fix it whenever I wanted, but cautioned that he's seen them take two weeks to complete. 16 hours in...

Me Too

'12 GSA, 14K. Sight window was down a fraction, so I started looking around. I've got it too. Crap. Oil leaking near the top starter bolt, tracking down to my Black Dog skid plate. Well, here's why...

I can't figure those Can Ams out either. Although I did receive a frantic "what are you doing?" wave while standing headed up a dirt road. Still can't figure that one out.

Are Pirates and GSX Warriers the Same?

I'm old. Well, not really old. Anyway 30 years of riding must count in the worthiness of observation department. My point is I think that both of the crowds have more in common than they think. ...

The best is going to Costco and fitting half a shopping cart on my 1200. The looks I get while carefully strapping my stuff down is terrific. "Don't you get wet in the rain?" "It happens". Unlike...

Nope. I've checked all gaskets for correct size as well. They match what came off the bike. I'll get some pics of the threads.

Black Dog all the way. Alt Rider looks like a thong by comparison. Nice on a chick, not on the bike. I've had mine for a year. Multiple oil changes-no problem getting it on and off. Their mounting...

Get it

Those 300s go forever. I've got an '03 with probably 150 hrs on it. Chugs like an old XR600 down low and rips from half throttle. I just took it out for a spin on the dirt roads of Fairfax, VT. My...

All things equal, it's better to have learned in the dirt

Most of these posts are right on the money. I'm a semi-geezer at 45, and learned to ride in the woods back when the XR 600 was king. I later moved on to a host of 2-stroke machines that taught me...
