Congrats!! There's nothing like the feel of a V8 between your legs, the sound of a V8 in your ears and the looks of 99% of the people who see you riding it. Get ready for lots of smiles and miles.............
Its like a baby, has teething problems, but once you get on good terms you'll enjoy riding her. Like any love relationship, patience and understanding wins. Seek to understand all her systems, take care of her, and we're here to help the new V8 couple (you and your bike), have many happy adventures together :mrgreen:
Clue 1: Manage heat (heat wears out electrical system. Get great fuse box and zip tie everything off block)
Clue 2: Manage maintenance - Keep track of the state of wear parts in motor, electrical, cooling, chassis, fuel and power systems
Clue 3: Lubricate frequently and check for metal fatigue on bolts and chassis.
Clue 4: Keep spares of hard to get parts. Buy when on sale,rather than in an emergency
Clue 5: Make your own manual from stuff on here and the V8 Bible.
Clue 6: Keep a parts list. On older bikes, parts are getting rarer to find.
Clue 7: Make a list of other dudes around with early 90's bikes. Make yourself a contact list and copy ideas from them that have gone before.
Always fun picking others brains, visiting them and their bikes and incorporating the best ideas into your ride.
Enjoy showing off your bike. You are a unique couple!:biker:
