I'm hoping you're right. Relatively easy to fix and even easier to pay for.

Did you put a tester on it, and did it throw a code?

No. It didnt seem that obvious so I was skeptical. I didn't get any warning lights and I didnt bother to hook up the computer. It stopped in the parking lot. I managed to started after while and made it home. Then again wouldn't start. I changed the fuel filter and it worked perfectly after that.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Well, I decided to add this to my tool box.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hyper-Tou...r-Red/54620271

It will be here Wednesday.

Meanwhile, I'll put the bike back together so I have transportation. Bicycle gets ruled out when the temperature reaches 100.

my Cyndi has turned into a Walmart internet junkie...
she is getting a good deal of our groceries, and nearly all of our dog food delivered....
and most of the time, it is cheaper than going to town and getting it from the brick and mortar Walmart stores....

add in that it is a 40 mile round trip, gas at $3/gallon now, gas alone for the trip is $5 bux.... plus, the 3 hours of wasted time on the road and back.....

just a couple hours ago, the driveway alarm went off, and FedEx brought in another box from Walmart..... we get most of our stuff from Walmart now on Saturday delivery runs.
siouxindian and trike lady like this.

That and google is all you need.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

If you live away from things and places, the internet and UPS can simplify your life and save you some gas.

my daughter is now doing more shopping on walmart.com than she is by driving into town and picking the stuff up.

it costs us $6 bux in fuel to drive into town, and 3 hours of our time.
a few minutes on the laptop, and the order arrives in 2 days.
