Just wanted to introduce my self, My name is Zack. I'm new to the forum and to the vtx. I traded my 99 honda superhawk in on a 05 vtx1800f spec 3. I loved my superhawk and rode it for 5 years and for about 10k miles. But was wanting to get a cruiser bike so I could be more comfortable on longer rides especially while riding 2up with my girlfriend.
I'm digging right in, the new to me vtx has 11k miles on it. I decided before I started riding I would just go ahead and do some of the common fixes. Pair system removal, desmog, ground fix, check/adjust the valves. I took the tank off on saturday and it was apparent that it had not been off before so I am happy about my decision to check the valves, although I havn't gotten that far.
Also going to flush the coolant, brake fluid, clutch fluid, change the oil and rear drive fluid. Any other suggestions?
looking forward to getting this little project done and start riding, especially since the weather has been so nice here
