New and already have a problem
I have just gotten myself a white XVS650, 2004 model.
I have ridden it a few times and loved it. Except for the odd clutch positions. I am a new rider, in Australia and did all of my initial riding on bikes with a far less extreme friction point.
Anyway, had a go at doing something about this and seem to have made it worse than ever (in that the clutch no longer engages at all) but that might be a story for another thread...
