I now have 51,000 miles on my 05 1300 C. In this period of time I have had pretty good luck with the bike in spite of it being ridden pretty hard. What issues have you had with your bike and what has had to be replaced to date other than routine stuff?

Broken / Replaced:
1. Clutch cable at 45,000
2. Front fork seals at 50,000

Aggravations:
1. Continued cold weather starting problems in spite of two attempts at dealer to solve same.
2. Occasional slip of clutch when starting cold with higher RPMs.
3. Buffeting even with lowers and a MS 21".

my 04 1300S has 44,813 miles on now... I've had to replace one front turn sig bulb, and one headlight bulb. Been riding with a spare OEM clutch cable in my saddle bag since 2005, lol... This coming spring I am riding 3100 miles to Florida, and before leaving plan to replace the water pump, repack the wheel bearings, replace the flange bearing and headset/steering bearing sets, remove the PAIR valves, and if my wallet can stand it, replace the clutch pack.... mine has had ZERO problems.:firstplace:
