Well Ants, it looks like you have two members greeting you who have had problems left by the PO. I was working until 9:30 on my bike...the PO had put 10w30 oil in her when it calls for 20w40. Seems that there's always those handful of bikes out there where the PO thought he was a master mechanic.
With all that said, this is an awesome place for information and awesome laughs. Let the questions fly and I am sure you'll find the answers you need. Welcome again and keep the rubber side down!
