Mine were shot apparently, the bike had sat for almost a year before I bought it from my buddies dealership. My biker friend explained that with the new gas formula, that gas starts to lacquer after about a month, and sitting that long ate those two pieces up. Runs like a champ now. I got a new brake line (thanks tim) and on the road again!
Isn't there a country song that goes like this:
On the road again. Seeing ugly faces I ain't ever seen. ....................
It ain't about where you live; it's about how you live. So, ride to live, Bruh.
