I am back in the saddle again!
I moved to NM just over a year ago and am back on the Xciting. I had to drag it down here from CO and let it sit as I tried to figure out what to about the ignition/key issue. I wasn't able to fix it or find the replacement. I was in a tough spot until I did some research and realized the key set on my 250 is THE SAME as on the 500. They get different part numbers but are the same at the factory. So I ordered an ignition set for a 500 and installed it. Not easy to cut the old one out.
It started up pretty easily but the instrument cluster was out and so were my available funds. I did get a stimulus bonus and struck a decent deal on a used cluster and Viola, am riding again.
This place of mine is really a middle of nowhere place. My rides in and out of our village have some shorter technical sections and much longer, flat, straight as a ruler rides. Yeeehaw!
If you are coming through Southern New Mexico, let me know and I might come out and GETCHA!
