  • New Guy from Arizona

    Hey there all, I bought an 04 roadstar in January and have loved it so far. My bike came with a batwing, and a dirty carburetor haha. For the money I feel like we found a steal for my girl and I to enjoy. I love the power and feel of the bike in general.

    further planing to do the Roadwing (we will be riding 2 up about 30-45% of the time) after I realized how garbage the stock spring/damper is. I’ll tidy up the batwing and replace the head unit on the stereo on it. And lastly I’m looking to possibly change the pulleys for a bit better fuel economy on highway as I would love to use it to get out of town a bit. (Thanks to Duke for the heads up on this)

    hopefully I can contribute to the community as you all have already been a big help since I’ve been searching through old posts and gathering information.

                That sounds like a blast. If I have the time off available from work. I'll see if I can make a trip of it.

                    Welcome fellow Zona Roadie!
                    I ride around the east valley and cross over to Glendale quite often.
                    You have a good looking bike there. I like the color.

                          I thought you bought a house a couple years ago in Florence. Why the move?

                            The Florence house is really nice, too nice in fact, we'll never be able to pay it off, so we found this one in Kearny that's 70K cheaper. Plus, we'll make $40K selling this house.

                          Most excellent! Been decades since I was there.

                            I don't recon it's changed much since you were there. Frist time I went out there was around 1995 and it looks pretty much the same. Smokin' deals on houses out there (who wants to live in Kearny, right?). This house we're moving to is bigger, over 2100 square feet, but it's nowhere near as nice. Built in 1966 and looks every bit of it. Nice shop for my bike, and the old guy who croaked left behind a shitload of power tools that his family isn't interested in. I see a small windfall in my future.

                          Eastern AZ has amazing riding opportunities. I haven’t been through to kearny in ages though. Haven’t done 191 yet but I want to run it from i10 to show low as well.

                          congrats on the new house. Sounds like you’ve got some good stuff coming to you.

                                Just want to thank everyone who puts knowledge out there. I’ve gone through pages and pages and found several things I could easily fix.

                                today I dialed in the pms screw. It’s like a new bike. It has been running so lean I was getting pinging from detonation under light acceleration and running so hot even on a cold day I felt like I was riding in 100+ weather from the heat of the bike just idling. The pms screw was almost falling out. (Putting a hose over it as a cap this weekend...) the bike is running really great.

                                All the stuff written on here is like a treasure trove. So I want to thank everyone again for putting this together. If I’m ever at a meet, I’ll buy a round.
