Just bought a 2003 SE RK, 11K miles paid 13K for it..Mint condition, V@H pipes and couple minor additions but basically stock.......
Rode it about 50 miles so far and love it...Sold an 08 Ultra and like this one more.......
Question: It has the matching quick detachable top box..Was this an option for this year???
Picture picture please?
I hope you like your 03 SERK as much as I like mine. Still in the process of filling my wish list.
I do not believe that the TP was and option. I believe that many odered the TP and had it painted to match. I have also seen them with the Chopped Pak
I have also seen 03 SERKs with matching fairings. I have done some checking with one of the local HD Shops. I can buy a Hoppie Quadzilla Quick Detachable fairing and have it painted to match. Est $2,000 ready to install. The beauty of that to me is that you can put it on in cold weather and easily remove it in warm weather.
My 03 SERK now has about 26K on it.
A few things to consider
1.) Entirely possible that around 25K those OEM CAM Chain Tensioners can self destruct. Some get more and some get less. I went ahead and upgraded to the Hydraulic CAM Chain Tensioer Plate.
2.) I had and issue with my Stator Rotor. Apparently some of the 1st half of 03 SERKs could have and incorrect Tq Value on the Compensator. Mine happened to be one. Luckily it only started to chew up the inside of the stator rotor . As soon as I hear the noise, I parked it. Apparently there was also a service notice to add a shim. Relatively cheap reapair. While primary case was open, I upgraded to the newer Self Adjusting Primary Chain tensioner.
I have been told the way to tell which half of the year is - Inside of Bags = Gray
3.) You may want to check the rear Exhaust manifold pipe from the cylinder. They have been know to have cracks inway of the two "Y's". Mine had 2 hairlines, one at each junction.
I went ahead and put in a PC III and had it DynoTuned, the only thing preformance wise I have done so far. TQ = 90 and HP = 88. IMHO that is pretty good for and OEM 03 SERK. It does have the K&N Air Cleaner, all else still stock.
I have no intentions of trading or selling my 03 SERK. Well worth what I paid for it.
Next thing for me will be Progressive Mono Tube Kit front and Progressive 940 Ultras rear.
Late Fall I will be looking to kick her up to 100+ TQ and HP. looking at DME TC590 CAMs and whatever else DME needs to do to heads.
