I have already started the process by ordering another set of superbars (chrome) from NewBonneville. These are what I have grown accustomed to over the last 5 years, the stock bars not working for me and my makeshift solution too cruiser-like.
Now what? At 32K it is definitely time for chain and sprocket replacement. The teeth are starting to wear and I have noticed the decrease in output to the rear wheel. I am looking at the following kit:
Scrambler chain and sprocket kit
Cost: $264.00 Canadian
Rear shocks; Mine aren't exactly worn, however I have noticed a decline in sharpness. Also, some patches of rust have formed on the chrome....Not acceptable!
Cost: $290.00 Canadian
Cost: $400.00 Canadian
My poor old seat cover is fading away and starting to lose a bit of shape. I intend to keep going into my golden years and frankly comfort can be an issue on long rides. I like the look of this one and the reviews are good.
Cost: 160.00 Canadian
The one I have now has some scratches and is plastic. It looks the part, however I have longed for a polished item since the day I brought her home!
Total costs: $1114.00. Needless to say that will have to be spread out over several months.
Other jobs? Bleed the brakes and fill with new fluid, oil change and spark plug check. I will also do some detailing and finally get that damned dent pulled out of the tank! I have started and made some progress but it takes a lot of work.
Until next time....
