You're one sick puppy, Stosh. I've contacted the seller through the through the CL portal asking several specific questions. I'll await their response and, pending the response to each question, I'll arrange a visit. I'd like to remind a few geographically challenged members here that the location is about 80 miles northwest of me in the mountains or about 60 miles southwest of Denver. It's a beautiful area to ride in.....Well ...uh ...yeah. ^^^
So did you buy it yet? :laugh:
I don't know that that is true. I'm not bragging but my '92 carby would sit for a couple years with fuel in the tank. I'd charge the battery and fire it up. After twenty-three years I changed all the hardware in the tank because it seemed prudent, and the carbs because I wanted to. My new FCR carbs were a lot harder to start than the old, never worked on Mikunis. Every old bike is going to need something done to it, but I don't think the fact that those fueling components were changed is bad.The fuel system work tells me the bike doesn't do well in storage....at least not long term storage.
Well the 1000DS is fuel injected no no carb work required. I'd buy it.Seriously folks, I've owned two Duc's and both were water cooled. My only other experience with an air cooled Duc was baby sitting a friend's '95 900SS while he was stationed elsewhere. I seem to recall that his bike was a normally aspirated nightmare that required extensive carb work and human sacrifice every other full moon. That said, I enjoyed riding it.
What am I getting myself into??
Hey Jack! I thought that post might drag you into the conversation!!>That was my 900 SS SP you're talking about. That bike was a love/hate relationship......
