So I've had my 2001 LT for about a year now. I absolutely love it. I have always been comfortable on long-distance rides, and even though many say in town driving is too difficult, I have not ever had that problem. I have used this forum and Kirk's videos to do upgrades to the headlight, the dash lights, and to get recommendations for changing tires etc. THANK YOU! The bike now has 60,000 miles on it and I am getting ready to take it down for the winter. I'm pretty handy with a wrench and I knew I wanted to do several maintenance things, and take the Tupperware off (Brake pads, fuel filter, radiator flush, brake flush, final drive fluid change, etc), but now it seems that I may need to replace my front shock and spring. It looks like the faring is hitting the top of the fender with hard stops and bumps, and there seems to be a leak in the front brake lines and some oil collecting on the center stand (can't tell where that is coming from yet) When I start totaling up the cost of doing all of this, especially replacing the brake lines, shocks and springs, I could almost buy another motorcycle or at least a good down payment on a much newer RT. Cruise control doesn't work and the radio doesn't work but otherwise the bike functions great. So two questions. One- is this bike getting too old and too many miles on it to be spending that kind of money, should I cut and run? Two-are there some budget friendly replacements for brake lines and springs? Just in what I have done so far, the prices for shocks and springs, and the other maintenance that I'm planning to do this winter is going to cost me as much as I paid for the bike in the first place. Any advice is appreciated.
