    Another important note is that while riding last summer Postman and I stopped for fuel at Fall Creek Falls and when we were ready to leave, Postman's bike which is a '08 had sparks arching off his starter wire where the rubber insulation had become so rotten that it was literally falling off the wire. We did a quick fix with a piece of plastic coke bottle and some electrical tape to get home. We then had Curtis supply the boots we needed to repair his starter as well as mine, this is a common problem on these bikes. I suggest you take a look at yours and get Curtis @ Wild Steed to hook you up with some new boots if yours is dry rotting like ours. We also added the "Slam buttons" since Postman had his started switch give him problems on his ProSport in the past, Curtis can hook you up on those also.[/QUOTE]

    Very good point!. I have seen this happen on Big Dogs, Iron Horse, Swift, etc. Check the wire on the starter it does dry rott. Many of us have this prob. and it is easy to over look.

    Very most excellant and how to post Mr. Bow :2thumbs:

    Thanks V, hopefully I can help others avoid the troubles that I have learned along the way.

    Here is a pic of our bikes(Postman & I) when we stopped at Red Lobster today to fill our empty stomachs.

    Do you all think changing out the primary to the a belt driven with no fluid is something a backyard mechanic can do? I have worked on cars, but never motorcycles. I do all of my own small mechanic work, but while this looks simple bikes are new to me and I would have no step by step instructions.

    Steve, do you still have the pictures? It would be nice to be able to see them re-posted on the original post.
