A bad day!

Went for a ride.... after checking out the bike... got back to the house. Its an acute right into a stone drive up the hill. I was in the left of center. I had used the brakes and blinkers for about 150 yds with 2 cars following. A car zoomed by on the right between me and the ditch. The second wait...

Re: My first Motorcycle

He is right. When you check at dealers, sit on what they have and evaluate how they fit...

Then talk to the mechanic staff. Many, if not most, machines can be adjusted somehow
for their height and reach. It may affect the way they react.

Re: Metal Chunk Found in Oil, Smoke and Burning Smell While Running

You need some skill to pay attention to fitting the parts. There are critical clearances that may need adjustment. Can you do it? Possibly... Read and check everything, watch some videos, ruminate on the concerns expressed. Then, and only then, decide to pick up a wrench or not. Clean everything fir...

Re: Where do vacum lines go on a 250 scooter vitacci 2018

I just googled "vitacci 250cc vacuum lines" I found many links and videos too.
You may find your information there. I did not find a maintenance manual.
There is contact information on their web pages also.

Re: Where do vacum lines go on a 250 scooter vitacci 2018

How many vacuum lines do you have?
How many openings for them?
Can you provide pictures of them?
We may be able to make a decent guess with that information.

Re: Stupid mistakes and solutions --- New Impressions.

I've been asked more about fit and finish. I'm shorter now, almost 5'10'' and 215 lbs. When I sit on the bike, the seat is comfortable and my knees are not bent tightly. I'd like the grips back just a little farther perhaps a hair higher too. I lean forward 5 to 10 degrees as it is. Its not enough t...

Re: Stupid mistakes and solutions --- New Impressions.

I'm using the on board 110 charger. Its quite usable for most peoples needs.
I've read they can be charged in 2 hours or less now from 30 to 100%
The extra chargers cost thousands.

Tripping today requires carrying some of those extra chargers.

Re: Stupid mistakes and solutions --- New Impressions.

It took a while to get and have a lowering kit installed and the forks lowered about ¼ inch. My feet touch, about half anyway, with the new boots I finally found... I may drop the forks a little more. So: Personal observations after light use. I rode a GS550E before. The DSR is quite different in so...
