Luckily you won't need any mechanics since it's not a Harley. Congrats and welcome to the forum.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Default Appreciate the help!!

Thanks for tips above ^^^^

Purchased at 15k ,now at 17k ....pipes,carlini bars
I have read that a few people have had problems with getting into neutral, i also have that issue seems like Clutch went out after ride this weekend would not shift down into gear when coming to stop,and when i was in gear cruising and got on throttle the torque was delayed, sound was there but no pull for a few seconds. I cleaned the clutch lever at the cable attachment after ride , but I'm pretty sure clutch is burned out . I was given a Barnett clutch assembly new gonna try that next with the throttle body tip!

Sometimes fresh oil 'n' filter helps here though not always... Good luck.
