I love to ride, and having a motorcycle and working on it is also my hobby.
If you're passionate about your hobby, you will always be looking for ways to improve, modify, change looks, etc.

We sometimes look for an excuse to justify the money. As I've gotten older I now say, if you can afford it, do it. Sometimes you can by a little happiness.  :)

Amen.  I enjoy the tinkering almost as much if not as much as the riding. 


I like to keep the bikes pretty stock though so it's important to pay attention to how I'm doing a lot though.

Now now.  Don't be a hater.  Stock bikes matter.

W/O looking to verify I think his bikes still have the stock wheels on them... but I could be wrong. :evilgrin:

Uh... well.... ummm, they're; well.....   ok, the back wheel on the FXR is stock (but the belt pulley or the rear brakes next to it are not).  So one wheel out of six.  That is "mostly" stock ::) .

My 93 Fatboy (which I still have, though now sporting a 107 TC)  had a tendency to push oil out of the base gaskets.  Can't remember the name of the kit, but found one that you tapped the oil drain in the jug and threaded a spigot that would feed down in to the case.  Never really had trouble with the rocker boxes.  Damn soft cases and pulling studs, that's another story.

You're getting really in to these little details Dood.  One wheel, six wheels; it's all mostly wheels.  It's all good (and mostly stock)!

That's a very bad day right there.   Very bad day.  You ever used Time Serts to fix those?

Yep, did two of them.  Just wouldn't hold if you tried to put much or in my case apparently too much power in to it.  A friend who was a service manager at the local Harley store put a big Jim's motor in his 03 Roadglide so we shoehorned the TC in to the Fatboy.  After bringing it up to 95 ci. The crappy tensioner set up took out the timing chain on the way back from Daytona in 08.  I bought the Roadglide a month later and just got the Fatboy back on the road this year.  It's fun so far.  Hope to dyno it soon.  Not much for tuning on it.  Jets and timing curve.

Oh, the EVO is still sitting on a shelf in the garage.  Never even took it apart when the last stud went.  Had an oil and fuel soaked leg when I rode it home making one hell of a racket but it got me home.

That's a sucky way to end a ride and a motor.  I've been lucky.  Used Time Serts twice in pulled stud holes and both held up.  Or at least they help up for as long as I was aware of the repairs.

I like the way you think!   :2vrolijk_21:


I'm really getting tired of you guys ridiculing my stock-ness (note, I said stock not stocky, assholes).  I choose to identify as stock.  Quit ridiculing my choices.  You're gonna hurt my feelings.


Now I'm gonna go out in the garage and plug the USB cable in to the FXR so I can dial in its ignition system a little more.
