Each spring there are many riders trying to wake their bike up from a winter nap or new to them rides and are having issues. There's a many here who will share their experience in an attempt to get you safely on the road. A few things that really help us is your location and some bike details. If you fill out your profile with at least your state it gives us an idea if climate has an impact on issue. Also fill out a signature line with bike info, that way we know which year, make and model you have at just a glance. Another great tool is the garage. If you post several pictures of your bike and a good description it really helps. Being able to see your bike helps a lot. If you have a question please post in the appropriate thread for better exposure from other members to assist you with as much detail as possible, model specific forum works best. The New Members Introduction forum is for us to know you. A brief hello, type of bike, riding experience, etc is great for the introduction. Then you can post issue in appropriate thread. For those who usually post suggestions for repairs did I forget anything?
