Looking at a low mile bike tomorrow. Should I pull a valve cover? Any changes between '13 and '15?

2013 should be a roller. Pulling a cover takes 5 mins and should resolve any angst.

Big change for 2015 was the use of the Cali 14 sump arrangement.

Change over point to rollers was mid 2012 but having said that if they found another box of shitty flats lying around they'd probably use them up just on unprincipled principle!

My thought exactly.  I pulled the cover and found rollers, oh happy day!  The bike came home in the minivan and just needs plates and insurance.

Question:  One passenger peg is up and one is down, neither one wants to move.  Is this "locking" peg thing a feature I am unaware of?

Congratulations! Did you get the stock saddle along with that Corbin?

Those pegs can just be stubborn. WD-40 or the like and just work'em. If you stick with the Corbin, who cares about stuck pegs. Nobody's going to want to ride on the back anyway...

I have a custom seat made to my gargantuan measure, the stock seat and the Corbin. I will sell the Corbin as it is a bit of a bucket and I like to slide around. SWMBO despises the GRiSO and will only ride on the Eldo.

Elder-ado, I see what you did there. I'll have you know I am still young and in the mix. Just the other day a lovely twenty-something was holding my hand helping me across a busy street.

Shit No! thats too clever for me, (just crap at spelling) Embarassed  But now I definitely want an Eldoer-ado if it gets me holding hands with twenty something year old pretty things.
