Hello from West Michigan
« on: August 03, 2017, 07:38:50 pm »
Hello All!

I picked up a showroom new, 2013, Concours 14 this Monday.

Traded in my 2012 Yamaha Raider, which was preceded by a 2012 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom, which was preceded by a 1981 Suzuki GS850G.

I've always had an attraction to the Concours 14, I guess I just needed to through a "cruiser" phase first.

I'm looking forward to many miles on the new C14.  And if this forum is like the Raider forum, I'm sure I'll be spending time here too.

Welcome!  Change/flush every fluid in that bike.   I don't think I'd trust the battery either.  Remove the battery and scrub all the connections with a brass brush.  Change the fob battery as well.

Make sure the tires aren't dry rotted either.
