    Need help with DMV/Registration etc

    Yeah I remember seeing that as an option, I think you get like a $40-50 off what it normally is if you've taken it within a year of applying for insurance; Also aas far as the cost I originally looked through DMV, the only one they give you an actual price on is the Harley one thats $500; After...

    Electrical issue?

    I dont know why I didnt think of that; I'll have to check that now; It might explain why it wouldnt turn over correctly when I tested with the previous solenoid

I was just about to update my original post; I...

    Electrical issue?

    I replaced the starter solenoid, and fuses. Now the neutral/brake/oil indicators don't light up, and it wont turn over with the electric starter. I tried kicking it but couldnt get it going (I sprayed fuel into the carb throats, and then straight into the cylinder) Any help appreciated
