  1. You might be able to clean up and straighten the original points if they aren't to burnt up. Either way, replacement points are cheap enough and easy to install.
  2. I've been looking at the Touring version of the Super Meteor. I'd like to lose some weight as well. The RSV has gained weight over the years! Grins! Only complaint I've heard is the windshield doesn't protect the head from buffeting at highway speeds. Do let us know how the scoot rides at you get more miles on it. I'll be paying attention! Pretty color!
  3. Agree with BlueSky. Common problem. That teeny hole in the MC will plug up causing the pistons to not release. Both master cylinders need to be checked since the rear seems to be the problem this time. A "E" guitar string is small enough to poke through the hole without damaging it. This usually happens when the brake fluid isn't changed regularly. Gunk gets in there or brake lines get old and start to flake inside the line. Poke the hole. Flush the system. New fluid. Go ride!
  4. Hmmm... May not still be a member. Never answered. I've often thought about this... probably use a tiny led in a plastic housing on each handlebar ...
  5. I'll throw my name in the hat! Excellent idea, Don!
  6. After a couple of months of not riding due to foot issues, I finally got out the other day. Nice warm day!
  7. And a late Happy Thanksgiving to all from Arizona!
  8. Squirly on road surfaces for me, has always been tire pressure and/or tire wear. Different manufacturers tires also respond weirdly to road surface issues. Best I've found so far are Shinko 777HDs. 38lbs front. 40lbs rear. 5lbs air in front. 40lbs air in rear. Single rider, 3/4 full side storage(both).
  9. If you haven't removed the carbs yet, let me say that it's not that hard at all! I did it twice... With nothing more than reading the posts from guys who have done it on this site. It's just time consuming. I think it took me 2 hours first time. Stopping to take notes and pictures so I could get it back together. When I got the carbs out, I thought "that really isn't that hard". Just saying...
  10. Crossing fingers the person who has come forward works out the way you wish. I found this site late, but having met you and so many others from here....I have come to love my friends here! Such good people.. and.... This is the only site I've found where positive human values are evident with all who live here! It's a pleasure to know you.... and all of the Venture riders! Prayers Up for your health, Don!
  11. Prayers and thoughts of best wishes to you, Don. Crossing fingers at well! Get the BMW and ride, my friend. Ride!
