    I Can't Edit my Signature

    I've tried several times to edit my signature, but it just tells me I have 19 too many lines of information, and won't let me delete, or add any other information. I'm not a computer wiz, so I'm relying on one of you guys to guide me in my lack of understanding - Thanks, AZ

    Deuce Starter Question

    Gentlemen: I have manuals but they are still packed away from when I moved, so I got a question(s). For the last year or so occasionally my Deuce wouldn't start, it would just "click." I'd manipulate the starter button and it would start, so I always figured it was the start button. But...
