Hey I know a guy

But he can't change tires

Is that important?

Nothing can beat the joy of doing it yourself, and learning about your machine. Never know when that experience can come in HANDY!

Yes you are correct and it would I be great if I could.
I am eager to learn though.

A service manual for your specific bike is a good place to start.

The majority of the service manuals show step by step procedures that my 11 year old can comprehend.

If you can make it up to Jax, I can help you out.

P.S., ignore the chuckelheads.

There is always YouTube, but this guy really breaks down common maintenance items.

My pops claims the hardest part of working on an RT is pulling the skins off.

You can't get here from there. Unless maybe you pay Waybill for a free tour.

Thanks Huzband & BobbyG.Wish I could get it to Jax,but its a brake issue involving the ABS/servo,which I want to remove. Its pretty straightforward and commonly done in under 2 hours,judging by what I've read & seen on youtube.
The chuckleheads are the reason I don't post in Sandbox.They think its JoMomma and thread-crapping is an art form to them,but I digress.

Sorry you feel that way. I was just giving you some suggestions on how to go about learning to work on your own bike if you were interested in doing so. No worries though... if you're ever in the area, I'll buy you a beer.

I've seen many "professionals" work on other people's stuff only to screw it up for them. That's why I learn to work on my bikes & cars. I figure if I screw it up, I can't blame anyone but myself and I didn't have to pay someone else to screw it up for me. Sheeit, I even do my own drywall, plumbing, tile, windows, doors, etc.

Here's the link to the ABS servo removal:

Currently the brakes are in the "limp home" mode since the ABS servo is INOP.
