Hi, Im joe. I might possibly be trading my R6 for a roadie (would prefer a raider or warrior but beggars cant be choosers). I will definately miss the 6 but Im planning a few 2 up touring trips. The first (and only) person to email me about the trade has an 03 but its got a different engine (same roadstar engine just different year). he said the only problem hes had is the starter went so he had it replaced. just wondering what are some common problems with this year, etc. that could cause the engine to need to be replaced? I went to Wyotech in Daytona for Harleys, so I know my way around a push rod aircooled cruiser, and having had the 6 for a few years and a few projects (96 kawi fe100 and now a 91 ex500) i can guess my way around pretty much anything, Either way, looks like you guys have a good forum and I may stick around just for fun even if I keep the crotch rocket.
