Man Ree, that's happened to me quite a few times... and that's a shitload of riding, cuz my tank is 2 gallons... lol. i'm kinda worried about putting too many miles on it, cuz it had 3300 or so original miles on it when i bought it! but, i can't figure out how many i put on because i never got a speedo cable w/ it. damn. oh well, i don't mind. haha! well man, i'll check ya later!
