A friend of mine V-rod is in the shop, because the fuel injector went out. It's a 2003 with less than 3 thou. miles. He's not a happy biker.Bret said:After reading through pretty much anything on this site relating to V-Rods, I am curious as to how many people actually have not had a problem with their V-Rod. I don't mean rinky dink stuff, but things that shouldn't have really happened considering the price tag of this beauty. I guess I'm feeling slight paranoia, and need some reassurance.
im 55- nail that sucker lolShe's runn'n like clockwork....... a couple'a annoyance's that are still around since last year...............
1)-----fuel gauge sending unit is still being erratic but for some reason not as much this season ?????
2)-----loose left mirror syndrome has just hit me bout a K ago
3)----a very small amount of black oil smudge on the drivers side of the front rocker cover-----not really a leak as it looks more like blow by when the engine is runn'n
4)----on my 3rd rear tire ( not the rods fault )---- picked up a nail in my first one-----had it changed------brought her home , took her to the ether a few times THEN noticed they put the tire on F-ing Backwards-----so i got a new tire again outta that frackus
5)----Am a little embarassed to say this , especially posting after SuperKaz , but I've only red-lined her once , in second gear, and I've never lit up the rear tire ( which I would like to do at least once ).......feel free to call me a ***** or whatever , but my baud rate isn't what it used to be , and I cant assimilate and collate input faster than my Rod can give it to me-----I DO take her to the ETHER ZONE now and again on some healthy throttle rolls.... does age 53 count ????
6)----This is my first bike ever-----I love my bike-----the bonding process continues.......
7)----a little nervous bout her going in for the 10K check and having the engine touched at all......by a mechanic that hasn't done a 10K check on a rod before.....
Well -----thats my status report.....will post if anything crops up .
