Re: Going to need to re powersomeday..

Not entirely 100% sure what the issues are...could be a couple of things. It could be an injector pump issue. It could need new seals. As of right now, I'm pretty sure it's only running off of one...

Re: Possible Trade for a boat...

And this is the reason I post here. I'm definitely thinking that this isn't such a good idea. I think I should wait...sell the Harley, save the money and buy something a bit bigger that would make a...

Re: Possible Trade for a boat...

In all honesty, it's probably only worth $3500. I was going to ask $4500 and see what I got. And thats probably a high estimate. I just don't want to get into a boat that's going to depreciate by...

Why does everyone knock the 883? If you ever owned one, you know they are excellent bikes with plenty of power.

Re: Possible Trade for a boat...
