You are not getting fuel, by using starter fluid, you are by-passing the fuel system. If it's carburated, it may just be dirty, and need a cleaning. That's not to expensive, but fuel injected, could be simple or costly.

check with your local Police or Fire department. There isn't a national bicycle serial number registry. Only if the previous owner actually registered it with the local Police or Fire dept will there be a way to check if it is stolen. Police regularly have auctions of lots of bicycles that have been recovered but have gone unclaimed because the owners never registered them.

It might be the police can do nothing or it might be the police you talked with can't or won't raise enough interest to do something - often the case...
Part of the problem is the police and other authorities don't understand so what you need to do is keep a diary of the dates, times and what is said by whom. Recordings might help.

I suggest you write to anyone and everyone you can think of who might be able to help or advise you. Use recorded post so recipients have to sign.

You also need to know the law where you are. If the threats are of harm it is possible the police have the power to treat them as an actual assault. Knowing the law and your rights in such things means it will be more difficult for you to be fobbed off when you ask for help.

If you can afford it you should consult a lawyer but if you can't there might be a department in your local government offices where you might find free advice. The chief clerk at your local court is another useful source of advice and citizens help charities and some bank accounts and insurance policies have free legal helplines.

Independent witnesses to the abuse and threats should be persuaded to make a statement and details should be entered in your diary.

I purchased a chrome motor bolt set for a 2005 Road King Police Special and never used it. I sold the Road King and bought a 2008 FLHTP/Electra Glide Police Special. Can I use the bolt set? If yes, what...

Hi Eljefalalo, 4 out of 5 Harley Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side contact your local dealers service/parts department for confirmation and your torque specifications are:
1. 1/4" bolts 10 ft lbs.
2. 5/16" bolts 20 ft lbs.
3. 3/8" bolts 35 ft lbs.
4. 7/16" bolts 55 ft lbs.
5. 1/2" bolts 75 ft lbs.
Good luck and have nice day.

Pin number

There are only three ways to unlock the GPS.

1) Get the PIN from whoever you bought it from.
2) Take the GPS to the location it was at when the PIN was set.
3) Send the unit to Garmin to have it reset. For return information: CLICK HERE

If you can't get the PIN from whoever sold it to you online, it is probably a stolen unit. You should contact your local police dept with a the serial number to see if it turns up in their database. If it is stolen, you may be eligible for a refund from the online auction house because you were defrauded. At the very least you should file a complaint with the auction house to prevent this sub-human from screwing other people the way he screwed you.
