    Default Just got a hell of a deal.

    Never been a big bagger fan, but this was too good of a deal to pass up, and besides, I wanted a good reliable road bike. 92 Ultra Classic Electra Glide, needed a battery and rear tire (also had corrosion on the connections to the starter relay.) One of the previous owners spent some money on it, as it has supertrapp mufflers, S&S oil pump, K&N open air filter, and pulls like it has a cam of some type. Put a new battery in, cleaned the shit out of the relay connections, and it fired right up and purred like a kitten. Got it for $1,500 (plus $100 for gas and $60 for a cheap walmart battery.)

    If you choose to, you could strip it clean of all that extra “baggage”, sell it off and get closer to having a free bike!

    One hell of a deal is right! That thing would go for $6000 ($4500 US) all day on this side of the border.

    Nice! As-purchased not running that's a ~$3000 or better machine. Thank whoever let the battery go dead!

    Yup, hell of a deal...good to know they are still out there.

    For corrosion on all parts including electrical connections, I found this: ACF-50;
    Aircraft Protection... For Your Bike
    "ACF-50 (Anti Corrosion Formula) was developed to protect aircraft and their electrical systems from corrosion. Aerospace products meet the highest performance standards and for more than 25 years ACF-50 has continued to meet or exceed those requirements.

    ACF-50 uses on motorcycles are very similar to those on aircraft. Sprayed into the structure, joints and welds, under the tank and seat and all electrical connectors, where corrosion happens unnoticed..."

    I checked my local classifieds and the cheapest evo bagger was $6500 cdn with 300,000 km

    The market for motorcycles in Canada is terrible some of you guys have no idea how lucky you have it

    Put the Walmart turd in your riding mower and get the most CCA you can fit because weak batteries do bad things to starter motors. A pushbutton solenoid end cover is cheap and a very good idea.

    Don't have a riding mower, but plan on replacing the cheapo Wal Mart battery ASAP, but new rear tire is a priority (it is bald and has been ordered. Also plan on installing one of the solenoid end covers you mentioned as well.
