  • A year together

    I bought my 04 roadie about a year ago with 47500 miles on it for about 1200. Since then I've put about 4500 miles on it under the Arizona sun.

    It had been sitting under a tarp in the back yard for about 2 years when I bought it. It had one owner, but he wasn't so great about maintenance. He changed the oil and that's about it. She needed some love.

    In the last year I've (in order):
    Fresh battery
    New stator
    New regulator
    Oil change (synthetic AMS oil)
    Carb rebuild (Baron's)
    New K&N air filter
    Maxair Stainless choke (which I really like)
    New tires (Commander II)
    New rear rotor
    New brake pads all around
    Fresh brake fluid
    Memphis shades windshield
    Fresh clutch/throttle/idle cables (Barnett stainless)
    New grips
    2nd oil change
    Fresh gear oil


    I feel like everything that NEEDS to be done is done... now I'm getting into the territory of things I WANT done.

    A roadwing and racetechs are on my wishlist. As are braided stainless brake lines.

    Is there anything else I should keep an eye on maintenance wise? I see recent posts about the pulley nut, do I need to get in there and inspect?

    I would definitely make sure it's tight. I bought an 05 this year with 12000 miles on it. Reading on here about the pulley nut I checked mine and it was loose. Had to buy a new pulley.
