If I want to accomplish this goal, I’ll need to do some work on my motorcycle, because when I rode it this weekend, it had a few issues. It’s 21 years old so problems are to be expected, but these will need to be fixed if I’m going to ride it 6000+ miles in 2 months.
1) The biggest problem that I noticed was that the clutch felt like it was going to start slipping, so this winter I’ll need to inspect it and probably rebuild it.
2) Then all the cables with rubber on them need to be replaced, because they’re cracking.
3) Now both tires have slow leaks instead of just the front one. It’s not something that I’ll need to fix, but I’ll need to be aware of it while I ride.
4) Lastly, the starter motor has a strange problem where it won’t shut off. I need to remove a side panel and disconnect the battery before it will stop. That need to be fixed, especialy considering how hard it is to jump start the thing. 6 years ago
