    I Love This Bike as did my Dad. But it has been a nightmare to keep running from day one. It is on the truck more than the road.[​IMG]

    It sat in garage for four years while my dad mom and 17 year old daughter all battled cancer. So i decifed it was time to ride again and bought a new battery and it wouldnt turn over and melted the battery post. It would turn over without plugs so i had starter rebuilt and a new battery and ground cable. Tried to spin over first few times never cranked now it wont spin over at all

    Did ya drain the tank and clean the petcock filter? maybe take the carb apart and clean, new set of plugs and try jumping it with a car battery, WITHOUT the vehicle running.

    What size battery did you put in it. It takes a good battery,good cables and good connections to turn that 107 over. Good luck.
