I just wanted to find out if anyone else had some of the same problems I had. My Vegas is an 07 ,I bought it as a left over late in 08. Where I live we have a short season for bikes, east coast Canada.My bike had 3200.0 km's on it . First the starter went, then the handle bar bushings fell out , the clutch cable broke, Both of the throttle cables rusted through and broke. The service tech. said the bike would need a clutch before the end of this season. I am 45 years old and have always had a bike since I was 16. So there is NO ABUSE. The bike has been in a heated garage from day 1. Never seen rain, It seems like I bought a bike made from parts laying around someones shop.My bike now has 5442.0 km's on it. Has anyone else had problems like this?
