Advice on Buying a 05 1700 Midnight Star
This will be my 2nd star bike, first was a 650 classic which I rode to Daytona this past year from Cincinnati OH - great bike. I am getting ready to buy the 1700 this weekend, but want to make sure I have done enough research before shelling out the CASH! Problems I have come accross researching on the net:
1. Leasking gas out of the carb? Is this common, either a hot or cold engine?
2. Exhaust valves sticking
3. Cylinder mis fire issues/problems
With all this wisdom found within the site, I was hoping for a few minutes of everyone's time to provide some quick feed back, GOOD or Bad. I hope these are isolated issues in a small number of bikes, but you never know. If you have this bike, please free to give any additional input.
