More Newbie questions
The bride just purchased a 12 Cross Roads (RED) with 33k miles. I have a couple of general questions. Also, a couple of things we noticed during test ride, etc.
The CR popped on decel. Will look at the headers and exhaust joints for leaks or looseness. It also popped during starting after sitting for a couple of minutes. IS there anything else I should beware of on this ride?
The CR demonstrated a pulsing when the front brakes were applied. To me, it felt like a warped front rotor. Sales guys said it could be the way the ABS works on these, or a tire. They ARE investigating before delivering next week. Have ridden other ABS bikes and not noticed a pulsing sensation, am curious if that was a SALESMAN's answer. Legitimate response from sales?, or am I looking at a new rotor?
What are some thing I should LOOK for on the used '12 Cross Roads? Left side cover to see if these is a fuel controller? How can I tell if the bike has had a stage I, or II kit? What are some areas I should give an extra look at? Air filter housing? Belt, swing arm, etc... I am not asking what mods we should do, more, what areas might be worthy of a more than casual looksey? Trouble spots, good things to look for etc.
I am still reading NEWBIE posts and WHAT TO ASK posts.
Thank you in advance. Ride safe,
