Question New Memeber Saying Hello And Help!

Took out my brand new Highball for it's first ride and I laid the bike down! SMH! No paint damage thank god! But, I do have to replace the LH turn signal light covers which I cannot find anywhere and the shifter ratchet which sheared off during the fall! It does seem like I can do the work myself? What do you guys think? This is my first bike and I am not very familiar with working on one. When I take the primary drive cover off, I'm assuming I'll have to drain the oil? What kind is it? Just reg oil? Or is it a clutch / transmission fluid? Thank you and pardon the ignorance.

Thats a hell of a first ride and first post,

Number 1,
Find forum member @BBob and look in his signature for the link to the workshop manuals, most engine's are the same so close to your bike should work, I printed the book in A3 size for easy reading the drawing

Number 2,
Another member is Paul from the company @HondaEastToledo he does everything by Email and can find any part for our bikes

Keep on asking if you need more info

Default Ops!!

sorry for your misfortune, as far as DIY with no experience i would suggest a factory service manual, hopefully you have some tools as well. you don't say how it happened but you prolly need to take it easy + if you can get some instructional riding or a motorcycle safety course. lots of info on this forum + a general search always works better than forum searches. many turn signals will work + e-bay is good for used parts.

You will lose a small amount of oil when you pull the primary cover. Like Andre said; look at my sig line for the link to service manuals or just click on THIS LINK. I'm not sure what you have going on so you may not need to pull the primary. See if these help.

Welcome to the forum from Florida. Sorry this is how you had to introduce yourself. I am sure you will get the be up and running again. Glad you weren't banged up. The bike is fixable. I hope you get it fixed soon so you can enjoy it!

I sheared off the shifter ratchet from the shifter linkage. Will the 2012 Vegas manual be pretty similar / close to to a 2017? Will I need to drain any oil before I pull the primary cover? Thank you for all the info.

Yes, the 2012 Vegas manual should be fine, they really didn't change much from 2008 on. No need to drain any oil. Just remember to replace any oil you lose and check the oil level. The usual basic stuff...
