Ya know....I think this is right. I've had a couple Harley's and assembled a couple bikes too. I think every problem comes back to my incompetence as a mechanic. I have learned to be better, but at this point, I keep away with wrenches.
For the most part.
And garbage aftermarket parts. Wow, what a lesson.
