Re: Hello!

Way up in BC so I won't be much help, but I hope it's recovered soon and in good condition. While I'm here, I may as well throw out a great big welcome to TMW.

Re: rebuild bike, buy new, discard and get a cage

Time for a new wife??? Just kidding. The questions you're asking can only be answered by one person, you. Someone may say fix your bike, someone else might suggest it's time for a new one, then again, there's the, "Happy wife, happy life." issue. Write a list of pros and cons, have a serious sit dow...

Re: 2008 Vstar 250, struggles to start but runs fine?

Gummiente has the right idea, definitely sounds like the charging circuit. try doing the same as I did when I had a similar problem with my Yamaha, check the battery terminals, somehow mine got loose. (Or I was a dummy and didn't tighten them properly when I installed a new battery. :( )

That's the only bulb? 5W seems more like a day time driving light. It should be closer to 55W.

What is your current bike model and year?

Re: LA, behind bars

Looks like you had fun, be careful with that numbness, do you know the cause? I had it in my right hand and fingers, there was an impingement in the ulnar nerve at my elbow. No loss of strength, just a loss of feeling. When I applied my front brakes, I had no idea as to how hard I was applying them....

Why would you even consider one that someone has obviously not cared for. You may fix these minor issues quite easily, but I would be more afraid of the ones that might creep up on you down the highway...
