02 Road Star Owner

Good day. I just purchased an 02 1600 and thought I'd join in case I had questions like I did with my other bike.

Thanks!

For the replies and warm welcome. I'll have to get some pics up, indeed.

In the meantime, I was having a "Chirp" issue, had my belt adjusted, and then it became a full-on squeal. Low and behold the good old "Search" function helped me find the soap trick! A little Irish Spring on the under side of the belt and that annoying, high pitch squeak is GONE!

Okay, so I'll try to get some pics done in between rides with my wife.

Hi Alabaster, Welcome to the 4m. The Roadies are AWESOME bikes Do check out the roadstarclinic site. TONS of great tech and mechanical advice over there too. Can't wait to see some pics.

Thanks, Annie. I've been poking around over there a bit. That may be where I got that soap idea. Not sure really. I'm so lazy about these pics... Maybe not really. I guess I've been riding so much the sun has scorched my brain. I'll get 'em up.

EDIT: Here's one with my biker-in-the-making, and one of my old lady They might be enjoying it more than I am.
