a working bike performs better than one engulfed in a giant fireball.
how many miles does your bike have? since they will be lifting off your gas tank and in your engine, if it's anywhere close to your 16,000 mile valve clearance check, it would be best to get them to do that when they do the recall. will cost you less on labor than having it done on its own later.
I will answer your question, then go off on a separate tangent related to something completely different, like I usually do
I got my lightly ridden 2009 V-Star 950 from the original owner on April 9, 2013, with 730 miles on the Odometer. It's 11 months old with 4,500 Miles on her. So that equates to about 4,200 miles a year, so far. Sounds like it's too early to mess with that now
It is Smart of you thinking of that, and Ironic, because I was thinking to myself, I wonder if there is any MOD, or required service coming up they can do to the bike while they in there completing the Warranty Work?
Here come the 180 degree turn:
Also, I got my Joe Florida 234 Light LED Kit a few days ago and will now, Wait to install my LED's
until I get the recall work completed. I'm installing LED's on the Undersides of the Tank, and know I can use a quick disconnect connector, but I might as well wait until I get the service completed before I start the LED Project so they don't have to mess with disconnecting my LED wires, etc.
On a similar note, I also just bought and received DevilStar's
(Star Forum Member) Yamaha Hard Bags off his V-Star 950 Cruiser.
I was planning to WAIT to add the Bags until I completed my LED's since I want to be able to have unobstructed access to my rear fender.
I still might go ahead and at least install the Hard Bag MOUNT Hardware to the frame. Then when I'm ready to add the Bags, I can add them quickly and easily to the Mounting Brackets.
I am also still trying to determine WHERE
to position my LED's in the saddlebag area? I was thinking I might mount a few strips on the actual steel saddlebag hardware in some fashion? Maybe pointing down? Or, I might put some LED strips on the Bottoms of each Bag?
I am going to check with a few Guys that Have saddlebags and LED's to determine WHERE they incorporated their LED's in their saddlebag area.
