How many of you work on your own bike?
I do what I can. If it is only wrenching then I do it. I have machine work done for me. I don't have the tools to bore a cylinder, but I do hone. In fact I'll be honing my XR600 cylinder tonight. I had a new rod installed on my crankshaft because I don't have a large enough press to get that job done. Anything else and I do it.
The question should have the word "bikes" instead of "bike."
A lot of it has to do with time and knowledge. I mostly like wrenching. Many do not. Some are afraid that they will screw something up. Some lead such hectic lives that they just don't have the time to mess with it.
Yep! At least the pre-bmw designed ones. No idea about the new 2010 250f or 2011 450 yet.Are Husky's considered reliable? I have no experience with them.
This was a trolling post JamesBuying a reliable bike is important to me.
I bought my 94 TE610 a few years ago...it haddn't been ridden for a year or so...started (left side) 1st kick. Usually starts within 3 unless I forget to "turn it on"! Whne we went out Mem weekend it started on the 2nd kick. Except for the leaks, which may be a result of my overfilling the case is the only problem I have with it...oh, and the forks (must have been tied down to tight without a fork saver.............)Are Husky's considered reliable? I have no experience with them.
