FINALLY got my bike today!! Ran good but seemed to be running a little hot.2qts low on oil will do that. So much for the previous owner making sure it was ready to ride. Needless to say, I'm happy with my new purchase and will be updating everyone on its progress.[/i]

Bike has a couple issues so far. Smells like its burning oil sometimes, not always. And coming to a stop the idle speed is around 2500-3000 rpm. Once I give her a once over we'll see how it goes.

Also do all the maintenance items on page 1-9 in the Honda Shop book that aren't on that list, and lube all the points on the lubrication points drawing on page 2-8 of the Honda Shop Manual.
