  • New from Southern California

    Hello all! I recently picked up a 2000 Road Star in excellent condition and for a phenomenal price. The bike itself has 17k miles and runs beautifully. I am the 3rd owner of the machine and the previous had it for 9 years. I can;t quite figure out if its been lowered, but it definitely feels that way. I'm loving the bike so far. Any suggestions on what to do next?

    You'll figure out what you want to do to your bike as you ride it more.

                                If the bike has a "feeling" of being lowered, one of the first things I would check is the rear shock mount at the frame. The early years had an issue with the mounting "ears" breaking off. But this issue causes the bike to be mushy in the rear and drag easily in corners. After that is inspected and known to be good; Contact Smokescreens for a "Roadwing" shock as a replacement. Night and Day difference between the factory shock.
