    Rhode Island title questions

    any luck with the VT route? I did a little research and it looks promising but no confirmations yet. i'm in RI and i have a bill of sale for a bike bought from Craigslist. My problem here is that the person I bought it from is not the last registered owner. The DMV was NO help and the police...

    doc_rot thanks for the heads up and your input. I'm clearly a noob so any and all help is greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to swap the cover this weekend, throw the battery back in, add fresh gas and try to kick back to life. When I get it started and ride around a little but I'll have a better...

    as it's been a while since she's run and i'm really anxious. is it bad to kick her and let her run with that cracked, maybe take her for a spin around the block?

    cheers teazer! bidding on the polished one and hoping it fits! furby - it's been a rough year and SLOW getting her up and running. a lot of it has been my own fault and the fact that life gets in the way of the fun stuff! this was just bad luck.

I removed the cover lifted it back up and noticed a cracked and broken cover on the right side near the brake. i...

    it's been a while since i've posted any updates. this summer quickly escaped me, i did some wrenching of my own and after a while i went the "easy" route. I went to a mechanice that works on my friend's xs400. i felt more confident going to him to do engine work. i asked him to get it running...

    ok, stator cover on after some muscling. kicked it and she started after a few kicks. the only problem is that a carb is leaking quite a bit. that is an issue far beyond my skill set, tool set, or work space. i will be bringing my bike to a referred mechanic to give it a once over, get it...
