pick her up friday

Postby HALBUDD » Thu Sep 08, 2011 6:36 pm



Well I have been looking for a 1500 to add to my two 1200,s I will be picking her up tomorrow 1996 aspy with just 13k on her. The paint and body are great,took her for a test ride and wow opened her up a little and she stuck me to the back of the seat. I love how quite it is as my 84 aspy has after market pipes and is a little louder. Hope to get her cleaned up and put some pics on here soon just hope it stops raining so I can ride. Hal

It's always good to have new toys.. Do post some pictures once you get her!! Just remember with all the extra gadgets you are going to get burned (Will not start as you knocked the reverse lever, etc!!) but it's all part of the fun of a new toy..

Congrads on your great find. Because it is lookin so purdeeee and such low miles, it is easy to tell yourself it is a new bike. It's not. It's 15 years old. And, with such low miles, most likely everything is original including all fluids except maybe the oil... Time for timing belts, flush and change fluids in brakes and clutch.....Clean out the return hole in the break master cyl, If it is gummed up, you will find the brakes applying themselves, or will not release when you take your foot off the break. That was the first problem I had on my 84 Aspy that I found in 08 with 9K miles on it. Doing the same thing on the 98 I just bought with 26K. Learned my lesson on the brand new very old bikes.
