It's interesting you should mention the 'fram filter' as an analogy to making a mistake, in so many words... I bought a pre-owned 2014 CTX this summer and love it. The guy I bought it from was common sense, appeared to take good care of all his vehicles (scooter, boat, car, etc.) but the last oil change he put on a fram filter. I've put on about 500 miles since owning it, may put on another 500 more before the cold weather sets in, but reading your comment has convinced me that next spring I should change the oil (even though it would have a thousand miles on the fresh oil), just to replace that filter. I myself use K & N filters, how about you? Thank you. -Peter. Kalispell, MT.Nela- Grew up in Bangor Michigan.
Professor - Arthritis has got the best of my left wrist. Just sold a beautiful 2013 Vstar 1300 deluxe a few months ago cus the clutch was just to painful to pull.
And I am finding out that 71 ain't old in comparison. It's like the old fram filter- pay me now or pay me later. I was cheap you know what and figured I'd pay later. I am.
To the rest who replied- Thanks. my wife never encouraged me to sell my 2 wheel. Spyder is fine BUT it aint' 2 wheels.
