"Get busy livin", or get busy dyin'"

Just grab the manual and go through it part by part. All of your answers are in there. The sense of accomplishment is well worth it when you look back on your first "season(?) and realize all you did was ride and not spend your time wrenching. Before you know it youll be looking for another project Ironhead and your '72 becomes the parts chaser.
