Hi guys, this is my first post (aside from the introduction one). I just bought a 2000 V-star classic 1100. It has 25000 km on it, it has (apparently) 3500$ worth of chrome, 50/50 pipes, engine chipped for the pipes, forward controls, saddles, lots of cool stuff! And I got it for 4000$. I think it was a pretty good deal.
That being said, it does have a few things to do on it. The most pressing one is the rear brake. You need to press really hard for it to break, and on top of that, the pedal doesn't really ''come back''. Also, I think the carb might need to be cleaned out. Sometimes when riding it kinda bogs down. I'm assuming this is to be expected since the bike spent a winter in an unheated shed, and didnt run much last year. It also needs a rear tire.
Now. I'm basically just looking for your opinions on what you think I should do myself/what I should have done professionally. I used to work in a garage (for cars), have worked in a small engine shop (for go-karts haha), and I am good with my hands. I'm pretty sure I can clean the carb myself, but regarding the brake, is that something I should have done professionally?
I don't really know what else to say, I guess I'm just looking for a bit of guidance.
Thanks in advance!
