Re: 03 1800 Head Bearing Loose?!

Well, I'm pretty sure I figured out "most" of the problem. On the way to work Monday (with the wife on board) and blew out the back tire at 75 on the interstate.

Re: Gas Mileage

Thanks for the response. Totally understand performance versus reality! I'm not far off that. Just curious since only had it one summer. Any tweaks to improve mileage...besides wearing lighter weight gloves so my hand isn't so heavy :)

Gas Mileage

So...fairly new 03 1800 owner. What kind of mileage should I be "expecting". Yes, I know it depends on type of riding and how hard I need to twist the throttle to make it go :D but in general...toss some averages at me. I'm talking open road, cruising, 2-up riding. Thanks for any feedback...

03 1800 Head Bearing Loose?!

Started noticing a slight "wobble" at low speeds (below 20mph) as I'm slowing in traffic, for lights, etc. It feels like a head bearing...I've had the same thing/feel on other bikes I've owned in the past. Does anyone know if it's possible to tighten a head bearing "at home"? Appreciate any help you...
