    Save your money on the mirrors. You will be spending soon enough. The 05’s have many potential issues. Has the restrictor been removed from carb. I will send you my $5,000 of of invoices for my O5 that had 2700 miles on it. New rocker boxes, main shaft, clutch nut, computer, ignition and more. Need to do charging system soon so I don’t fry my new computer. G carb makes huge difference over the E. Mirrors not so much. Talk to Curtis at WIld Steed Worx and he can tell you what to look for.

    As far as mirrors go believe me I've been thru several sets that vibrate apart the absolute best ones that won't fall apart or move from the vibration are bike master sickle mirrors they are $100+ dollars but well worth the investment also they look awesome and do function unlike most of the smaller mirrors

    Yall are just full of great news. I was so excited to get this thing home that I spent my entire day off just cleaning, polishing, and learning where all the issues and scratches are. I hope I don't regret buying this thing. I guess I always have the Goldwing for backup.

    Check your starter for oil leaking from the primary and make sure the primary vent is actually installed on the backside of the inner primary of its not your gonna need to pull it apart and put a vent in

    He,he... you're right, it sounds like all doom and gloom. A good overall inspection, some regular maintenance then take it for a good shake down run...that aughta do it. Biketoberfest is coming up!!!

    As I told u when u were searching on FB bro, these things aren't for the weak.. lol.. they do require love and attention and wont last like that goldwing will, but I can guarantee that they are a lot more fun and get a million times more attention! Keep ur chin up broham!! U got a beautiful bike and don't let these filibusters knock ya down.. take it as advice on some things and others just ignore.. cheers bruh!
