    '02 Newbie Here: What To Expect?

    I just purchased a very low milage '02 bird and have been a rider for over forty years, mostly sport touring. What parts, pieces should I keep an eye out on this model? What should I expect? Thanks for your experiences and expertise shared!

    Search "blackbird faults" on this site and realise that not much goes wrong on a well-cared-for Blackbird.

    Here's a decent starter for ya.


    There's no such thing
    as a "normal" biker.

    Stators and Cam chain tensioner (CCT's) for the most part. Be careful around 5000 rpm. Set your butt and be ready to reach for the bars and the next gear. Kinda in that order.��
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    Welcome to the forum jo. Most common problem threads on here are electrical. Usual Honda stuff, nothing serious. Just search the forum. CCTs and brake probs also a common query. Apart from that pretty bullet proof. You will always get a good answer here - unlike other forums.
