  • Vacuum leaks

    Are carbureted roadstars known to develop vacuum leaks if so where do they usually occur manifold joints ? The manifold itself, my 650 had surface cracks all over the runner.

    These bikes aren't prone to anything if you follow the maintenance schedule in the manual, like any machine you stay on top of things by inspecting lubricating points, fastener torque and so on. All rubber will deteriorate over time and in the sun and elements quicker than garaged.

      I just bought it with 40,000 on the clock it appears to be in very good condition but you never know how well it was maintained looks can be deceiving, i believe it sat in a garage for the past two years or one year at the least because both tires only had 12 lbs in them, once i get inside this Saturday and start pulling it apart ill know more. I need to check all the bearings so wheels and swing arm are coming apart first then the forks and trees, i want change all fluids including fork oil, looking at how the rear shock is built leads to believe all those pivot points should be disassembled and loaded with moly paste. I have all winter to get it set for the Cross country trips im planning on doing in 2020

        Forget messing with the rear shock....dump the stock 7 nit and upgrade to a Roadwing....use synthetic fluids everywhere (don't forget brake fluid)...I'm ordering new swing arm bearing myself now on ebay (less than $60 shipped for both)...get a good seat if you plan on riding
