  • New to Clinic, from Phoenix, AZ

    Hello All,

    Just found the site and been poking around a bit. Looks like a lot of good info and active members so I joined. Looking forward to the experience! New rider, though I'm 41. Wanted my own, but now that kids are adults (still at home), wifey relented on getting one. So my first ride is a 2006 Yamaha Road Star XV1700. Ride it to work everyday, so putting about 70 miles on it a day and getting educated!!!

        Thanks Shores! I read through it. Lots of good info and something I'll definitely refer back to. Quick question on note "12. Do yourselves a favor. Run something like Seafoam, Techron, MMO, etc., in your fuel". Do you start with just a couple ounces initially? I'm seeing some posts online (not on this site), to use a whole bottle and then ounces after... I think that is for a car though. Thanks again!

        By the way, love the tag line! Doors are one of my favorite bands ever!

                    I'm sure that was a gorgeous ride. I drove up to Yellowstone/Tetons (not on bike) and is was awesome! I may look for some tips from you on camping with my roadie!

                      Unless you have a significant performance problem, just follow the instructions on the can and use it as often as you feel necessary. Seafoam is one ounce per gallon. MMO is something like four ounces per ten gallons.
