Re: new owner and a couple of questions
Just a quick heads up: Make sure you get a Table style lift. The small under frame lifts like you would use on a cruiser will not work on the LT, as there is no frame under the bike..
Some think a lift is necessary, I for one do not. I did just about everything one can do the the LT, including complete engine removal to replace the sprag clutch. Replaced two clutches, slave cylinders, etc.. Never saw the need for a lift. I would much rather spend that money on something else.
Yes, a lift makes a big job a little more comfortable, but spend all that money to be a little more comfortable for a couple days a year? Not me. The rest of the year it is just in the way.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
