New to Ducs, just bought a Monster 900 in good condition from it's 2nd owner. There's no service records so I'll have to go through it over the winter to check valves belts etc. Glad to find this community.

Took it out for a easy country ride, what a difference from my BMW roadster love the leaned over riding postion. Just what I was looking for, something with some hair that sounds like it means business. Needs some work though, getting into first gear is an adventure clutch is pretty much all or nothing. It takes some high revs to keep it from stalling out when letting it out to get into first. Rest of the gearshifts are ok though. Also it bogs around 5500 rpms. Ran some fuel injection cleaner through it and seemed a bit better but I'll have to start going through the Haynes manual troubleshooting list. Just ordered belts so I address the unkown belt age and check the valves. Fun bike!

Replacing belts is a smart move.
What is the go with the rear indicators?
What do they look like from the back of the bike?

WTF?
That's like dressing a pit bull in a torn tutu.
I'd sort that out while you're waiting for the belts.

Thanks! I used to have a pitbull, she hated tutus, advice well taken. I'll make a separate post about sourcing the part. I found a used one on eBay for $$$, but since it's winter I figured I would take my time. Especially since I don't know what problems I'm going to run into bringing it up to a good maintenance level. The tank also has some dents and the carbon fibers are dull. But getting the mechanics sorted is the primary goal. I also have to put a clutch and rear seal in my '98 BMW R1100R over the winter so time and $$ will be tight.
