I ride two up from time to time, so I put on the sissy bar to see what it looks like.  I hope to try it out over the weekend.
I don't think the sissy bar looks bad, I just won't keep it on unless we are riding 2 up or need to carry luggage on the passenger pillion.

 Used Autosol all over the exposed chrome while the bike is still somewhat apart. Lots of calcified water spots in those hard to reach arias. Now all the nooks and crannies are glowing like brand new.

CVO2FIXUP, I don't know what Autosol is, but when I do clean my bike I use the Mr. Clean car wash kit. If you follow the directions you can wash your bike, pull it back in the garage and come back to a dry bike with no spots. CAHDBIKER

I'll post a pic installed if you want, but this is it

http://autocoolingsolutions.com/proddetail.php?prod=Engine-Oil-Heater-Oil-Pan-Heater-100-Watt-120-Volt

keeps oil between 100 and 125 depending on how cold it is. I don't have temperature controlled storage for the bike. Been fighting condensation for a while. Boot dryer helped, but not enough. Was close to freezing outside this am and engine was warm to touch. So there will no way be a transition from cold fluid inside to outside temps rising and causing condensation on all the chrome. In the past that plus dust/dirt lead to corrosion and a lot of elbow grease several times a year to bring it back to mirror shine. I'm certain this is the answer now, plus can't help but be good for a cold day startup to ride. All thanks to my ex taking my heated garage  :(

Then I ordered this http://www.ebay.com/itm/380691292230?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 , could've gone with a smaller gauge, but overall diameter between the heater and this wire on the outside is the same. Spliced and soldered, heat shrink, then neatly routed it next to battery tender plug.

Changed oil in the engine and trans (Harley Syn 3) and primary (Mobil 1) - and as always put just a little more in than the book calls for.  Aired up the front tire to 38 and the back to 44.  Put almost a half a tube in the front fork bearings.  Ready for Galveston next weekend.

I was under the impression that autosol is a abresive and should not be used on " perfect " chrome. It's meant to restore dull and oxidized chrome.

I am not sure but suggest that you check the fine print

Haven't ran the bike in over a week. Had frost this morning outside and dipstick said 107. Before if I were to check at that outside temp I wouldn't get a reading off the LCD lol. So it's doing its job well. And at only 100 watts, it's not a big juice hog.

I'll look into it. My pipes are stainless so they have a brushed look up close anyway. My wheels, 08 HD chrome, so they're great from afar and this really brought out some shine. Didn't do any engine casings. Used rimwax on them. Thanks for the info though. Was thinking about doing some of the engine tomorrow because it says it leaves a protective coating.

I installed some new grips by Arlen Ness.  Changed most of the motor bolts for polished stainless steel.   I had to take the tank off to do it, i was slightly intimedated. But it was really easy.  So while i was under there i ran my Power Vision tuner cable.  I also removed my header pipe in preperation for my Clarity cam cover.  So next weekend i will install the cam and derby cover and some Arlen Ness floor boards.

Was just showing what the block heater brought the engine temp up to from it being pretty, pretty, pretty cold outside(sorry was watching Curb all night). As for the dipstick, I've had it since late 07. Dealer gave it to me with the purchase of my bike. I've never had a problem with it. I just finally changed the battery in it last week after all this time. Now I'm sure there are plenty who will say they're junk and they break, but I either got lucky or they weren't. Who knows  :nixweiss:  I think it comes with a 1 year warranty, so if its bound to break I hope it would go before then...

Like the title says, what did you do to or on your CVO today?

Florida in August sucks when it is 86 and 90% humidity, however we ride all year long, so this beats out the heat in August and July. Rode from Tarpon Springs to Ocala yesterday, Went to a car show in a farm field. Over 300 muscle cars, antiques and plain old rats.I ate a zeppoli and drank apple cider and rode home in the sun at 78 degrees. 220 miles in total and a slight sun burned face. I certainly do not miss living in Northern NJ this time of year!

  Isn't using stainless steel bolts in aluminum a no no?  Don't they react with each other and seize? Just wondering.

Actually getting ready to put the bike away within the next few weeks - the tourpak goes to the painter the first week of December so I know I'll be done riding for the season before then. I use to ride year round up until about 6 years ago - that's when CT decided to start using a liquid de-icing solution on all the roads -- that sh*t will eat the aluminum even if it is powder coated, and it maintains it's caustic effects for days after it's sprayed.

That looks great. I am thinking about ordering one but wonder if it interferes with your right knee?  Looks like its a little thicker and it have a few points on it.

Any concerns or issues? (I assume not)

I was concerned that it would hit my leg but it does not contact my leg at all - you results may vary, I'm 5'9" with a 30" inseam and the billet cover sits nicely behind my leg just below the knee as I'm riding  so you can use that as a guide.
Even though it appears to be MUCH larger than the stock filter cover because of it's shape it actually is only about 1/4" larger around the O.D. because of the cool retention bolts  and maybe 3/16" thicker  :nixweiss:

I didn't do this today, but did it this past Saturday -  :-[

First mod on Saphira.  HUGE THANK YOU to Hx2 for helping me out with some wiring tips!  I'll probably post a few more pics in the SERK board for it.
- Added Truck Lite Phase 7 headlight and passing lamps
- Added HD custom auxiliary bracket kit
- Added HD bullet turn signals
- Replaced signal bulbs with CD Dynamic Ringz'
- Added Kuryakyn deep dish bezels
- Added Kuryakyn LED trim rings
- Added CD Signal Stablizer for LED signals - I did need it after running the bike for a few days with the Dynamic Ringz in as a test before the full install.  My signals never "learned" to flash correctly without it.

I know most won't like that I decided to keep the signals on the handlebars, but it does give me more light.  I was on the fence about it, but the boss came in the garage and said "I like it - I feel more comfortable that you will be seen better out there."  That was enough for me to keep 'em on.

I would love to know how well this setup throws the light up the road while leaning in a turn compared to the stock setup.   Looks good.   I'll bet it all uses as much electricity as the standard single bulb used so your electrical system isn't screaming.    :2vrolijk_21:

Digital, I haven't actually done the math, but I think with all the lights being LED's it's actually using far less juice than if the signals and headlight/passing lamps had regular bulbs.  I haven't taken it on the road at night since doing the mod, but it's pretty blinding sitting in front of it to take the pic.   8)

EDIT - Went back and reread your post, Digital.  I think you were saying the same thing, but did so far more efficiently than I did.  I shouldn't post when my mind has turned to mush for the day.

Well, not today but yesterday....20K mile service and a tune with the SE Race tuner.  Not bad results for very little output money wise.  Only mods is the removal of the SE muffler plug and changing the stock header.  I'll take it and it runs so much better.... :2vrolijk_21:

First picture is the base run (with catless header pipe and deplugged SE muffler, no tune).

Thanks Todd.  For about $750 OTD (that includes the $150 for the de-catted header pipe), I got a good increase with much better spread across the RPM range.  Plus, checking the fuel mileage so far, no big changes.  Of course, I'm playing with it a bit more since the tune so my fuel mileage is suffering a bit but what the heck....

I meant to post about your lighting changes....VERY NICE!  I like the LED look and am very happy with my Phase 7/Truck light so I know you will love yours along with the halo's.  More light = better visibility to see and be seen.  Tickled for ya, brother.

I would try some Scratch & Swirl Repair (http://www.harley-davidson.com/store/scratch---swirl-repair) (or similar type product) first... I can't imagine a microfiber cloth would put a scratch so deep that could/would require paint correction. :nixweiss:

This is what I use for the bikes: http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/professional+3+inch+random+orbital.do

Still can't get everywhere in, and around, the tank and fairing on either of my 2 bikes, but your SERK should be a little easier that way.  Bags are pretty do-able.  I get what I can with them on the bike, then take them off and lay 'em on a pile of sheets to do the backs.  Not much left to do by hand after getting the larger areas with the 3".

Added an Arlen-Ness fairing to the Breakout with HD quick release clamps. Makes a big difference when riding the bike. Up next getting it painted to match the rest of the bike with the diamond black/chrome/slate/red pinstripe.

De-catted the stock head pipes from my 2013 Road Glide (103) to put on my 2014 SERG with a TTS sometime this winter.   Its the same head pipe on both bikes from the factory right?

I didn't do this today, but did it this past Saturday -  :-[

First mod on Saphira.  HUGE THANK YOU to Hx2 for helping me out with some wiring tips!  I'll probably post a few more pics in the SERK board for it.
- Added Truck Lite Phase 7 headlight and passing lamps
- Added HD custom auxiliary bracket kit
- Added HD bullet turn signals
- Replaced signal bulbs with CD Dynamic Ringz'
- Added Kuryakyn deep dish bezels
- Added Kuryakyn LED trim rings
- Added CD Signal Stablizer for LED signals - I did need it after running the bike for a few days with the Dynamic Ringz in as a test before the full install.  My signals never "learned" to flash correctly without it.

I know most won't like that I decided to keep the signals on the handlebars, but it does give me more light.  I was on the fence about it, but the boss came in the garage and said "I like it - I feel more comfortable that you will be seen better out there."  That was enough for me to keep 'em on.




Looks good. I just put the Phase 7 lights on the front-end this week too. Friends I rode behind said they were certainly brighter and made me more visible; which is a good thing.  :bananarock:

It was in 2009 and I bought a new 2009 Vivid black FLHX. She got a new 2009 Vivid black FLHX (same bike) lol. We were both happy as could be and it worked out great. We were riding a 1997 Softtail custom so it was quite an upgrade. As you can see in my profile we have upgraded again to a 12 CVO SG  :bananarock:

Haven't been riding much, so I located the battery tender cable behind the left side cover.  Not sure why they put it there as it's a pain to take the bag off to take the cover off, to get to it.  I think I'll just leave it dangling from the bottom of the side cover, so I don't have to keep removing stuff to get to it.  Anyway, I hooked her up to the tender for the night.

Last weekend, installed tw-222 cams, Jackpot stainless header, crossover, 4 inch slashed up dyno tuned mufflers, timkens, Jackpot adjustable pushrods, and Woods lifters.

Set the adjustable a to 21 flats ( about .120).  Can't believe how sweet this bike rides and how quiet the top end is now.  Was able to a short 30 mile shake down ride in.  Can't wait till this weekend when the weather clears up a bit.

Well, I had a credit at Adamec Harley (speedo I ordered that the catalog and computer said would fit, but didn't so got my $$$ back :oops:), so I went to pick up three of those digital oil dipstick replacements. These are the ones that tell you the oil level and temp at a glance. Well, got one each for the Tri-Glide and CVO Road King, but for some reason they don't have one for the CVO Springer. Two out of three I guess.

@krypto2011, that looks like a phase7 headlight. I noticed the light doesn't extend pass the trim ring. Is it a bigger trim ring or did you do something else? Looks much better than having it extend pass the ring.

Yes phase 7 and kuryakyn led passing lamps. The trim ring is the extended version I guess you would call it. I bought the bike used with 1100 miles on it. I assumed all cvo's had them but maybe previous owner added it??? The original thinner one is under it and the extended one actually tucks around the thinner one to hold it in place. Definitely looks better than the phase 7 sticking way out beyond the ring.

Rode with 4 friends to Roanoke for the Toys for Tots ride.  24 deg when I left the house.  Saw a low of 21 on the way.  1300 bikes on 1 hour police guided ride thru Salem, Roanoke, Vinton, and back to Salem.  380 miles by the time I got home.

Interestingly, all 4 of us are (old) vets.  57, 57, 63, and 64.  2 young guys both Navy, 1 former Seal (Vietnam and "maybe other places"), 1 retired Army SSGT (Vietnam and Desert Storm).  The SSGT rides a Tri-Glide due to Agent Orange issues.  His first "bike".  Been riding 3 years, has 60K plus on the trike.  Rode to CA, then SW (different trip).  He's leaving on Wednesday for Maine (!) to escort the truck with the wreaths for Wreaths Across America.  Good Times and Great Guys.  I am honored to call them friends.

Replaced the voltage regulator on '11 SERGU.  Remember the recall on 2012 model VRs?  Lots of posts here by people with bad VRs outside the recall window.  The VR that went bad had a manufactured date code of 1513 (15th week of '13), so it wasn't the original.  Wasn't thrilled to see new VR with same 1513.

Then rode in an ABATE toy run parade, got rained on, went to breakfast with 10 friends, started to go on a ride together but got rained on again (heavily), so we all rode on home.

Wasn't today, but Monday we had 65 degrees here in Nebraska and I hadn't been on the SERK for nearly two years.  My brother was killed in a work accident while the wife and I were on the way to Sturgis in 2011 and it just kind of took the wind out of my sails.  Anyway, thought I'd better at least run it for a while before winter sets in.  Went for a short ride and think I'll get back into riding.

My wife liked the stock seat on the 09 but it wasn't my favorite. This new Hammock seems like it is going to be a good long distance seat. I forgot they moved the trunk back and angled the backrest on the 14's.

Have always rode a Freedom, time for new so I figured I'd try the Clearview Mail Slot. Went for a 50 mile scoot with super high winds, crack the slot open and my unzipped jacket stopped flapping!

Changed the 2" baffles on my Rinehart 4" slip-ons to the 2 1/4" High Flo baffles on my 2013 Ultra CVO Ann. I didn't like the sound of the standard baffles. The 2 1/4" are an improvement. They are a little louder, deeper and have a better "burbling" sound than the old ones. Haven't made a road trip with them but will when the weather clears up and see if they're not too load. Definitely worth the $89.99. Relatively easy changeout. Grabbed the old ones with vise grips, wiggled them a little, and they came right out.

Slapped on a demo Windsplitter shield on the Big Red One and went for a quick check ride.

It was 34 degrees outside, but I had to give this a try around the "block".  I have a a great route with quick access to the Interstate that amounts to about  5 miles that I use for checking things out and doing check rides.

First, let me tell you that 34 degrees is COLD!! - especially down here in San Antonio where we just don't see these temps!!!   :cowboy:

I put on the 7 inch Windsplitter on in about 1 minute - easy install.
To put things to the acid test, I just wore a ball cap (facing forward).

After warming up the bike I headed out down the road - one mile to the Interstate @ 45 mph. 
Once on the IH, I got her up to about 70 - 75 for a couple of miles.  I was very pleased that the wind did not try to blow my cap off.  Granted, I was hunkering down a bit - did I mention it was COLD?!!

Anyway, I am 5'11" and my experience is that the 7 inch Wind Splitter is just as effective as the stock 10" shield.

It was a short ride, but I plan to put in some miles to see if I really like it.  My HD parts guy told me to bring the Demo back "whenever" as he knows it takes more than a day or two to really get the feel of a new wind screen.

All I have to say is that my initial impression is very positive and that I think the 7 in Wind Splitter is a good replacement for the stock 10 in. shield.

I think the shield adds a cool factor of  +10 and really opens up the front visibility.   I am looking forward to putting in some miles with the new shield. Even if it does not hold up over the long haul, I plan to get one for every day riding and us the stock shield for touring.

Best Regards,
Mark

Wasn't today, but Monday we had 65 degrees here in Nebraska and I hadn't been on the SERK for nearly two years.  My brother was killed in a work accident while the wife and I were on the way to Sturgis in 2011 and it just kind of took the wind out of my sails.  Anyway, thought I'd better at least run it for a while before winter sets in.  Went for a short ride and think I'll get back into riding.

Very easy install if you have a little help. 90% one man job, lining axle up to go back in is a lot easier with extra hands. Press fit lft side threaded piece first......or be prepared  :sauer055:

Researched some lifts, I need to be able to move the bike around in the garage and take the weight off the tires.

I would be careful with that. Shock absorbers are designed to take the load pushing down on them, not hanging load. Not Sure how the HD shocks and fork are designed but for high end car suspension this is not a good idea. I doubt there is a mechanical stop in our units that would prevent a possible issue.

If I were to buy a new jack stand I'd buy the J & S after watching all the videos on youtube.  I was until I realized my Sears yellow jack allows me to move the bike around too.  Not as easy as the J&S, but still...How much am I gonna move a bike parked for winter?  I'll probably just keep my Sears lift.

You won't be disappointed.

They have a VET discount - and maybe even a CVO forum discount (can't remember).  Worth asking, tho'.
They were very nice to deal with and shipped very quickly. 
You are dealing with a family business - that's important to me.

One tip, however.  I was having a devil of a time getting the jack high enough to engage the support at the highest level.  All it took was for me to screw out the top of the jack into the cross bar 1/2 in to snug it up.  Might have been in the instructions, but I missed it.  Anyway, it works great and is super stable.

The first time I put my Ultra on the Sears Yellow Jack I almost had a heart attack.  Sold it to a bud with a SG   :nixweiss:

Rode my scoot all day!

Early this week, I finished up a couple winter projects. Added some new handlebars and some Heat Demons hand warmers. I wanted to keep use the stock clutch & brake cables. Added some color to the handlebars and have never seen any "YELLOW" Road Glides (or any other scooter) with this set up.

This fall I added some Daymakers LED's, CD Ringz, Fullsac Sleeper Stage II kit. That's it for this Winter.

I shoulda have gave my scoot a bath, but it was too nice a day and just wanted to ride.


I'm pretty stoked with the outcome!    :bananarock: :bananarock:

THANKS for all the kind words.

The bars give my scoot a whole different feel and look. Kinda a "stock custom"  is what I call it, not as slick crazy as many of the badazz bikes on this forum!

To answer some of the questions, I wanted to go powder coating but could not get the right color or pearl. So I had to get them painted to match. I thought about painting (still might, but in NO hurry either way) my lower fairings but I kinda like the slant color separation of the gray and pearl yellow.

Happy holidays,

I have yet to come across one that doesn't. Riders or not, they know the disadvantage of being on a bike. The fact that this draws more attention to the distracted masses is a good thing. An accident for us is also a bad day for them. Especially if it involves a road closure and measurements. The only type of LEO I could see having an issue with this is an uneducated non-rider that's fresh out of the academy and looking to pad his activity sheet.

Saturday was a beautiful 80 degree day so I decided to get the VRod out and go see a friend for a while about 25miles away. Was there about 1 1/2 hrs and decide to head back home playing around some back roads on the way. Nothing but pure adrenalin when it's you and a back road.
Back roads don't last long around here so I was heading for the stable when about a mile away a little old lady turned left in front of me at about 30 mph. Not sure why she didn't see as she was looking right at me but I just swerved hard right onto the apex of where she was turning and MISSED her. Of all the years I've rode that was the closest I've come to contact with a vehicle!
For once I didn't even get pissed as I was so happy I didn't get hit by her. Thought about turning around and going and thank her missing me.
I truly think she never knew what she had had almost done and felt shes the one that may need help. A lady behind me stopped next me up the road at a traffic light and was just in awe and was and couldn't believe what she just witnessed. Told her that's the only Christmas present I want this year and merry Christmas to her.  Ride Safe! :pumpkin:

That's a sweet ride, Jimmy. My buddy has the same bike/color. The paint job looks even more amazing live! I'll have to pass along your mod to him since he traded in his CVO Road Glide Ultra for this bike and his wife isn't exactly happy to have given up her comfy seat.

Thanks 2k. Actually I found a picture of the flip one in the open position on their website and since it flips up toward you you would have to put the key behind it. I really think the key acces would be easier with the swivel style like yours. Thanks for the picture but DAD GUMMIT now I have another mod on the wishlist it just never ends LMAO ;)

Had to look it up. Is it legal in all states? How much?

This is going to open a can of worms (Oil Thread?).  I have a strong resistance to headlight modulators.  Have heard of too many instances when a driver, at a quick glance, thought the rider was flashing to say "go ahead".

Can have the same effect with flashing rear lights.  I have a Bright Ass Light on the "flash 5 fast one time" setting. But, I was behind a GW withing blinking rear lights and integrated turn signal/brake lights.  Couldn't tell what the heck he was going to do when he had on both brakes and turn.

It's been hitting 50+ here in St. Louis, but they just sprayed the chemicals all over the roads in case it snowed. Ughhhhh!!!  I may ride tomorrow anyway, but man do I hate that crap on the roads.

You are just down I64 from me, so hopefully that warmer air makes it my way.  I agree, the junk on the road is not cool at all.  How is that new bike doing?  It sure is pretty...

Took her for a ride today as it was close to 60 degrees today in St. Louis. :) Unfortunately, upon return I noticed a small dime size drop of coolant on my garage floor, so looks like I'm suffering the thermostat leak issue. Can't tell because the CVO has the cover over the pump and thermostat. I tried to take it off, but I'm not sure how. Anyone know how to take the cover off to see the pump and thermostat?

Title: Re: What did you do to or on your CVO today?
Post by: JP Indy Hog on January 05, 2014, 06:43:47 PM
Yes, if you plan to have them painted you'd want to go with the black as I believe they are easier / take less time to media blast vs. the chrome.

Joe will confirm if you give him a call to discuss, which I recommend before doing anything else.
OK, will do. Again Thanks to all for the replies. Regards: JP

I was tempted to ride today since we got all that rain to clean off the chemically treated roads. My fear is all the residual snow melting and the roads being wet in spots. As much as I'd like to ride, I'm not sure I want to have to clean afterwards. :) If you ride have fun and be safe.

Curious is that a deer whistle down low in front?

Yep sure is, not sure I'm satisfied with the current location though. I don't ride the backroads around here at night without it turned on. I've had one on the last five bikes I've owned and I believe in it although some do not. To each his own.  :bananarock:

Your so lucky to have Lee in your backyard. I have to ride 1,000 kms (Calgary) one way for him to tune and dyno my bike properly.

I know Geezer, I'm lucky to have talent like Lee and his crew just down the street. He had it picked up, torn down, built up, tuned to perfection and back home within the week. If you're ever up this way and need anything let me know. :2vrolijk_21:

Not on my CVO and not today, technically speaking. But yesterday it was sunny and dry with temps close to 50 degrees. So I volunteered to go get my buddy's 2013 CVO RK and bring it to our place for the next couple of months. Even though we live less than a mile apart, I took an alternate 'shortcut' which was closer to 20 miles to get back !

This bike (same as 2k's) looks 100x better in person. As amazing as the blue paint job is, it just does not photograph well. I took the picture below this past June the day he bought it and brought it home.

Supershooter,

Looks like you are doing a completely rebuild!

I only removed the outer fairing & passing lamps! It was a lot of work to install the 578's. My patience was getting real thin after 1 day to install them & another day to get the heated grips to work.

I guess living in Iowa, with all that cold & snow you'll have plenty of time to get it right! Watched the Weather Channel today & it looks like you won't be riding too soon! But then again I'm not riding this week either!

Good luck with your project! Post some pics when you are done.

Amazing weather today so went from the water up thru Mt Laguna (around 6000 ft) down to the desert. Going to finally rain next weekend and we really need it so ended up doing around 300 miles which was awesome (my butt hurts..). Crazy amount of bikes of all types out today. Lots of waving.

Sunny and 65 F on Saturday, beautiful day, mild winds so I rode to Reelfoot Lake then took the back roads to Union City. Saw many other riders out enjoying the fine break in the weather. Felt really bad for all you that have snow dumped in your area.

Got up early to wax, polished & detailed the bike.

Actually truth be known, I got up early to watch the Canadian Men's Hockey Team   bring home the GOLD - again, then waxed, polished & detailed the bike.

Great day!   ;D

Changed from mustache engine guard to standard one and mounted vented, color-matched lowers.  Then took the bike for a test ride.  Never had lowers before but think I am gonna like them.

Took some pics of the nav screen while pointing in 4 different directions to post on another forum. Apparently the the compass needle on the '14 Nav is not a compass needle at all. It's a pointer to show what direction you are traveling.  No wonder I thoght mine was broken.

Finally got to spend a few minutes to get the cam chest opened up.  Went in through the top, removed rockers assemblies, etc.

Lifters and such looked ok, but they're being replaced anyway.  With 31K on the clock, no need to chance it with the stock components.

As for today, I got around to ordering a pair of Andrews 57H camshafts and Cometic head gaskets.  Just piecing the rest of the cam swap parts together over the next couple days.

Hey Supershooter,
What make and model of handlebars are those you put on your scoot???

I went for a putt today on my scoot for about 20 miles before it started snowing again.
Supposed to get several inches of new snow again tonight.
Is winter ever going to end ??
It gets into the 40's then the next day it's back into the 30's and snowing.

Not today but got my ride out of the local H-D shop on Wednesday (put it in for an early 15,000 mile service back in Nov and they let me keep it there for the winter). Only a 25 mile ride but it was great just the same. So ready for a long ride.

Did something I hate doing. I got out the hose and sprayed her down. Really couldn't stand all the winter salt, chemical, and brine dust all over just from riding a few times recently. That's it, I'm done. I don't care if it's 70 degs. I'm not riding again until a good rain washes all the crap off the roads. I'm afraid what the chemicals and salt are doing to the bike. Plus,  I hate cleaning. :)

It's a shame to miss out on a good ride with a friend.  The bike is bound to get dirty from road grime, even salt.  That's what the garden hose is for.  Ride man, ride.

That's what I normally say or think....But, after reading a thread on another HD forum about "Riding on winter roads," I'm scared my bike will fall apart in no time at all from the corrosion. Not sure who to believe, so I'm going to error on the side of caution from now on.

Glad you got out.
Wish we had been riding on this beautiful day.
We have a place on the beach at Surfside SC and had to go for a homeowners meeting.
Unfortunately we were in the car.
Naitram has informed me my next ride needs to be on the 01 SERG.
So after the rain clears the SERG is next.

225 on the SEUC last Sunday, 370 on the SERGC last Tuesday, the SERG is next.
After that the Silver and Black Classic is next. Since it isn't a CVO I can't post it here.

Dropped her off at the dealer to get some stuff done.

1. Installing a replacement tour pack lid. The original had a paint defect.
2. Coolant bottle filler neck program fix to stop the burping of coolant.
3. Thermostat is leaking at the elbow like everyone else's is.
4. Front left speaker is playing at 10db lower volume than the other 3 speakers.
5. Program the ECM so that the spots are on even with high beam.

My guess is #4 will not be fixed, but we'll see.

"Coudn't have carried all that stuff without the Bushtec; what a great addition that was!"



That's the next big ticket item on our wish list for those long trips. I'm thinking of an n-line model, but we'll see.


How did you like the 2" baffles on this trip?
Title: Re: What did you do to or on your CVO today?
Post by: gadgetz on March 17, 2014, 01:08:20 PM
......................
More than you wanted to know, to be sure.


Absolutely not, thanks for the details. I'm seriously considering the 2" baffle for our bike but wondered about the long trips and sound influence. We both like the deep rumble of a good set of pipes, but there is a line that I do not want to cross when that rumble is so loud that it interferes with our ability to communicate during a trip. I'd like to be somewhere deeper but not "louder" than a set of 4" Rinehart's.


We're also evolving/looking to go either to a 3/4 or full face from our 1/2 helmets for various reasons. I'm leaning to the 3/4 helmet.

On a real "for the bike" note (pun intended), I ordered my Stage 1 Kit from Fullsac today!   :bananarock:  Anxious for that to get here so I can get to work!

I know most go with the 2 inch, but when I told them I wanted the deeper tone but not a whole lot more volume, they recommended the 1.75 inch.  While I'm not crazy about spending another Benjamin if they are too tame, I can at least buy another pair or wait until they show up for sale here from another member (although last attempt at buying something from a member here wasn't too good).

Anyway, whoever I talked to says that Steve runs with the 1.75's and feels that you get the nice deep tone but only just a little more volume than the stock mufflers.  If that ends up being the case, it will be perfect for me.

Good call on the Ohlins.   -- I'll probably look into having the 30mm Ohlins cartridges installed in the front-end.  Not sure how that will work with the Road King's headlight cowl that covers the tops of the fork crown.

I'm going to do the cartridges this fall, or maybe sooner whenever I'm up to pulling the ENTIRE front end of the Ultra apart.

Got all the OEM exhaust off, added some more chrome to engine, and grabbed the new Fullsac header to put it on - the new pipe did not come with any mounting flanges. So, I'm dead in the water for at least a few days. I'm sure Steve will get it sorted, but I specifically took some time off from work to get this done.

Tomorrow's another day.

Tru - who is definitely Blu today  :-(

Yes, your supposed to reuse your stock flanges and C clips.

Ok, maybe I'm missing something, but there's a slight bell flare at the end of each pipe - so how do get the flanges off?  Also, Fullsac's description for the pipe lists "CNC-machined billet flanges" which I would assume to be new mounting flanges.

I'm great with reusing the stocks, but how do you get them off and onto the other pipes?  I apologize in advance if that's a stupid question that I should clearly see.

They can be a bit a of a bear to get off, but they do come off.  Kind of bend and twist with a pair of pliers - starting at one end.

Grab one end of the "C" and get it up around the pipe flange and walk it around and pull it off.

Regards,

Mark

P.S.  If you don't mess up the gaskets getting the pipes off, I recommend leaving them in there.  Installing the new ones is a bear, too.
I had a heck of a time (on my first install)  getting the gasket to seat flush.  They make a tool, but I wasn't gonna' invest for one install.

When I did my brother's bike, we just left the originals in.  They were basically brand new anyway.

Figured it out before anyone replied, but thanks to those who did. I think the most appropriate line would be from the movie 'Top Gun.'  "The State Department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid."

It took me a grand total of 2 minutes to get the C-ring retainers off, and find that the flanges slid right off.

Geez <face palm>

We now return you to your regularly scheduled and intelligent content.

Went for a short 100 mile ride to the dealership that is the farthest away to buy some more chrome polish. Ran into a couple of riders, one had a Road King and the other one a Limited. Ended up standing around and talking about our bikes and all the past and future mods for a couple of hours!!! Instant friendship. :)

This is more like what I did on it one day, then the next, then the next, and yet another day.  I'll throw a summary/lessons learned in the Intake/Exhaust thread, but figured I would chronicle some of my experiences (and stupidity) here since it still fits with the top of the thread:

Fullsac Install - Day 1 (Monday)

Fullsac Install - Day 2 (Tuesday)

Fullsac Install - Day 3 (Wednesday)

Fullsac Install - Day 4 (Today's schedule)

It's been pretty disparaging that something that most guys are finishing in 4 - 6 hours is taking me 3.5 days to complete.  While I'm no master-mechanic, I've done enough to consider myself to be decently competent (motor swaps, chassis rebuilds, etc).  But, at least it will finally be done.  Sorry how long this was, but if you were able to have a chuckle or two at my expense then it might be worth it.

Dude...  I feel for you.  I think most of us have had at least one "project from hell" while working on a bike, car, house or in our real jobs.

On a lighter note, I was waiting to see the "drank another beer / shot" in there somewhere, similar to the old "how to change your oil" schtick just to add color:

1) Wait until Saturday, drive to auto parts store and buy a case of oil, filter, kitty litter, hand cleaner and a scented tree ($50.00)
2) Stop by 7/11 and buy a case of beer, drive home. ($20)
3) Open a beer and drink it.
4) Jack car up. Spend 30 minutes looking for jack stands.
5) Find jack stands under kid's pedal car.
6) In frustration, open another beer and drink it.
7) Place drain pan under engine.
8 ) Look for 9/16 box end wrench.
9) Give up and use crescent wrench.
10) Unscrew drain plug.
11) Drop drain plug in pan of hot oil: splash hot oil on you in process. Cuss..
12) Crawl out from under car to wipe hot oil off of face and arms.Throw kitty litter on spilled oil.
13) Have another beer while watching oil drain.
14) Spend 30 minutes looking for oil filter wrench.
15) Give up; crawl under car and hammer a screwdriver through oil filter and twist off.
16) Crawl out from under car with dripping oil filter splashing oil everywhere from holes. Cleverly hide old oil filter among trash in trash can to avoid environmental penalties. Drink a beer.
17) Install new oil filter making sure to apply a thin coat of oil to gasket surface.
18) Dump first quart of fresh oil into engine.
19) Remember drain plug from step 11.
20) Hurry to find drain plug in drain pan.
21) Drink beer.
22) Discover that first quart of fresh oil is now on the floor. Throw kitty litter on oil spill.
23) Get drain plug back in with only a minor spill. Drink beer.
24) Crawl under car getting kitty litter into eyes. Wipe eyes with oily rag used to clean drain plug. Slip with stupid crescent wrench tightening drain plug and bang knuckles on frame removing any excess skin between knuckles and frame.
25) Begin cussing fit.
26) Throw stupid crescent wrench.
27) Cuss for additional 5 minutes because wrench hit bowling trophy.
28) Beer.
29) Clean up hands and bandage as required to stop blood flow.
30) Beer.
31) Dump in five fresh quarts of oil.
32) Beer.
33) Lower car from jack stands..
34) Move car back to apply more kitty litter to fresh oil spilled during any missed steps.
35) Beer.
36) Test drive car.
37) Get pulled over: arrested for driving under the influence. ($2,500)
38) Car gets impounded.
39) Call loving wife, make bail.  ($1,500)
40) 12 hours later, get car from impound yard. ($75)

Cost of oil change: $4,145.00
 But you know the job was done right!

Fullsac Install - Day 1 (Monday)
  • Removed exhaust system from the bike (2 hours) - A little slow, but I was trying to be careful.  Took pictures of clamp positions in hopes that it would help with re-assembling.
  • Installed and updated MasterTune software (30 minutes)
  • Install additional chrome pieces to engine (4 hours) - I love a fully-chromed out engine, and I wish Harley would make more parts/covers for the 110 because trying to wrestle with Kuryakyn parts flat out sucks

Fullsac Install - Day 2 (Tuesday)
  • Start installation of new header pipe (1 hour) - Realize that there are no mounting flanges on the new header pipe.  Call Fullsac and leave a message.  If I would have just spent the 2 minutes removing the C-Clips, I might have tried to slide the existing flanges off the pipe and saw that they would come straight off.  I come from the automotive world where the flanges are on the pipe, and can't come off.  So if you don't have flanges, you don't have a way to install it.
  • Disconnect heater wire from wall outlet (5 seconds) and opt to let it fall instead of setting it on the ground.  Stare in horror (20 seconds) as said cord falls the wrong way and hits the bottom of the left hard bag (that was only partially covered up) and puts a tiny nick/chip in the paint.
  • Install HD chrome head bolt bridges on engine (2.5 hours - 1 hour spent looking for a hex stud insert that I dropped) - I'm breaking the rules on this one, and I'll probably pay for it later (which means I'll end up taking them off).  I love the way these look, but I am afraid of what it's going to do with the air flow to the area in the middle of the heads.  Had to dremel the outer side of each bridge so that the spark plug wire could be removed and put back on easily.
  • Get out torque wrench in preparation for head pipe install.  Remember it was broken from over 10 years ago, and was not replaced.  Run to Sears to get a new one (1.5 hours)
  • Finally start installing head pipe (1 hour) - Had wife help with holding and watching front part of the pipe so I could get it aligned in the first shot.
  • Start re-installing heat shields on new header pipe (2 hours) - Yes, that's right - 2 hours.  I could not get them to align like the way they were on the factory pipe.  I realized it was a different pipe design, but I felt like I should be able to do it.  Finally gave up and left them as they were. Overtightened the shield between the muffler and the upper shields, and put two small dents in it from where the clamp mounts were.
  • Install cross-over pipe (30 minutes)

Fullsac Install - Day 3 (Wednesday)
  • Remove old cores from mufflers (2 hours) - Yep, another 2 hours for something that most guys are getting done in about 30 minutes.  I was completely paranoid of going too deep and going through the muffler wall (almost did on one can).  Started wailing on the core trying to break it lose while the muffler was sitting on a small table.  Forgot that I had left the Dremel sitting on said table, and watched it fall and break the grinding disks and bend the screw holding them on.
  • Install wrapping with new cores (1.5 hours) - Yet something else that should have taken about 30 minutes.  I wanted to use all of the wrapping so that the new exhaust wouldn't be much louder than stock, but just sound better.  The first can went great.  The second can I had to do 3 times before everything went in, and managed to get it stuck on the 2nd try which required pliers to pull back out.
  • Install mufflers, heat shields, and end caps (1 hour) - Realized that the end caps have to go on before the muffler heat shields go on AFTER I put the heat shields on.

Fullsac Install - Day 4 (Today's schedule)
  • Finish installing end caps and reinstall muffler heat shields
  • Re-install right foot board
  • Program ECM with new fuel map
  • Re-install side covers and bags

It's been pretty disparaging that something that most guys are finishing in 4 - 6 hours is taking me 3.5 days to complete.  While I'm no master-mechanic, I've done enough to consider myself to be decently competent (motor swaps, chassis rebuilds, etc).  But, at least it will finally be done.  Sorry how long this was, but if you were able to have a chuckle or two at my expense then it might be worth it.

I had the last 4 days off with awesome weather no less. So I rode a couple hundred miles each day and also managed to install a set of heat demons grip heaters. However, the heaters do not work. The left one is defective. Heat Demons is sending a replacement but it won't be here until after I leave for another trip to work. Just gonna be a little bit of a pain to disassemble again but the weather was just too beautiful not to put it all back together and ride!!!!

Added a Corbin "close" seat with a nose job and added heat to keep the wife happy. It moves you closer to the handlebars which allowed me to roll the bars forward which gives me a much better grip on the bars without changing them to taller bars. The nose job which narrows the front of the seat puts me flat footed now which makes for much better footing. The drivers backrest is just icing on the cake.(http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af23/deldago/40b6ba87-45db-47e0-9710-8bad17bd2948.jpg) (http://s990.photobucket.com/user/deldago/media/40b6ba87-45db-47e0-9710-8bad17bd2948.jpg.html)

Picked it up from the dealer after a new stator install and dyno tune to get the thing running better. Got it home and changed out the GB doors to the magnetic ones and installed my rain sock under the cover of my air cleaner so I don't forget it when I wash the bike or get caught in the rain.

Dyno sheets on another thread

I move my tourpak around the same way depending on how I will travel. Haven't done it yet, but I think it would look better when forward if the lid had the SEEG CVO style back rest.

Looks like I have mine back just a bit further. The speaker pods fill up the gap pretty good too.

Hey Jimmy before I decided on the swinebox I was concerned about that gap that the Harley tourpak leaves also. I had found some dummy pods on fleabay that filled the gap. They were the same size and shape just no speakers. If you add speakers you are going to have to add and amplifier and such. I will see if I can find those dummy pods again and post a link to them.

Wife and I, along with 2 other couples rode from about 35 miles south of Atlanta to Dahlonega, Georgia then over to Helen where we stopped for lunch.  Hundreds of bikes out cruising through Helen (95% Harley's). Probably 75 Harley's were at the patio restaurant where we stopped at for lunch, all lined up in a row out front with my CVO right in the middle.  :P  They had a really good guitar player / singer entertaining the crowd.  Enjoyed the day, weather was perfect..... I have a sunburned face to prove it!!

I did notice a difference right away and I thought I read that a few miles might be needed to seat in the chain. Much better and quieter. As far as the extended heel shifter, I had one of those within two months of owning the bike. I dropped it down one notch so when I want to find neutral real easy I just use that one. The heel of my boot will line up the shifter even with my floorboard perfectly to find neutral.

Installed the Hayden Tensioner, kinda by circumstance. Installed a new compensator about a month and 2000 miles ago. As I posted, the deal was fantastic and warranted it for me (including a clutch basket with my Barnett Scorpion cloth installed in it) even though I put in a 120r around 7500 miles ago. They have been more than fair (maybe even unfair to my advantage) with me since the beginning even though I went out of state to buy my bike. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a knocking sound coming from my primary at slow idol. My warranty runs out on April 24th so i took it in and they broke down the entire tranny (under warranty) and even tried putting another compensator and primary chain in it so that everything would be new. When they told me they were going to do that for me I told them to go ahead and install the Hayden partly because I was actually starting to feel like a mooch and thought I could at least give them some work that I would pay for plus was hoping that with all of that the knocking sound would go away.
Good news is though I really didn't have any complaints about the shifting or finding neutral, it definitely shifts even smoother now and is cool how it "clicks" into gears which makes me feel like I didn't just throw away money on a mod I wasn't looking to do. Bad news is at cold start up, it still has the "knock" though it will only do it for less then a couple of seconds and then goes away. I have only put a couple of hundred miles on since I got it back on Friday and it never did it after it was warm but I am hoping as the primary chain "breaks in" it doesn't start doing it like before.
Didn't mean to ramble, the Hayden is great...

Got my Progressive Suspension installed, went with the 444s and the cartridge kit.  Was not sure what to expect, bumps seem a little harsher at low speed but smooth out at higher speed.  Bike does not feel like it wallows around curves now it feels more stable.  So far I am happy with it, I think I just need to find the sweet spot setting for the rear shocks yet and then I am sure it will smooth out more around town

On Easter I took my son in laws Mom for her very first ride EVER on a motorcycle. Just a quick ride down the subdivision street before I noticed she had on flip flops. Turned around and came back.

Her husband of 50 years passed away last fall and she's still been a little down. But by all the laughing on the back I think the CVO made her day.

She told her kids that a new Harley is on her Christmas list.

How'd you go about doing the paint?  Looks good.

First I removed the little black plastic pieces out of the grooves, they popped right out with an eyeglass screwdriver. Then I covered the insert with painters tape and cut out the grooves with an exacto knife and sprayed them with the rustoleum cobalt blue metallic. This did pretty good but the tape had creeped into the edges of the grooves a little bit in some places. So I gave them one more coat without any tape on them at all and immediately wiped the chrome surface with a paper towel dampened with nail polish remover. There are still some places that could use a little touch up so I am thinking about getting a pinstriping brush, spraying the brush and doing the touch up, with the nail polish remover at the ready.

You don't have to have a GoPro to use GoPro Studio 2.0 and I've found it to be very easy to use and not overly time consuming for splicing clips from raw digital into a movie with music, text overlays, etc.   The trick for me was finding a GoPro mega-geek's site where he produced a series of videos that take you through the basics in about 20 minutes.  There are hours of additional "tips" but just to get going the first four or so are all you need.  The written instructions are about worthless.

Thanks I downloaded something called video pad and did some editing with it. It was fairly easy to figure out. Here are my results. Remember this is my first one so yall be gentle.

Currently installing new lifters, daymakers and CD turn signals, along with a complete service.  Pulled the old lifters out last night, and luckily they are like new.  Bike has about 6600 miles.  Put the S&S Premium Lifters in last night but still have a bit of work to do putting the engine/bike back together.  New daymakers are in and look great...still need to do the turn signals.  Great time to do some deep cleaning of the bike also and make it like new.  Have to be ready for a week long trip in June up throught the Northeast.

Thanks guys. After a couple 300 mile rides caused severe assoditis(?) I figured looks aren't everything when it comes to bike seats! I wish I could tell you if the DG seat makes a difference ride-comfort-wise but we have had the monsoons for the past 3 days. I'll report back as soon as the weather allows. For now, I am pleasantly surprised that the seat looks much, much better than I expected.

Went to Vroomshoop, Netherland, and bought an orange 2014 SERK for my friend. 800 km from home (500 mi) was closest I could find. Could have gotten a grey one cheaper but he only considered orange.
Started at 16–30 and was back home 01-00 in the morning. Most of riding time in the rain. Found the stock seat to be OK. Found my new helmet to be PERFECT.
I highly recommend the dealership in Vroomshoop (what a name for town!) if you happen to be there. Family run for 3 generations. Nice people and lots of goods!

Yesterday evening put on the Daymaker Reflector headlight and mirrors with LED turn indicators, same as I have on my bike.
Was not happy about having to cut off connectors and splicing wires. Funny thing is that the dealership offered me adapter harness (part nr 69200897) and the connector on the harness was ALSO WRONG!
I don't know WHO they make this for. All the 2014 HDI bikes sold here come with either projector type Daymaker or dual halogen headlight. The harness is useless in both cases.
I have no prob splicing four wires but come on, they sell this lamp for 500 euros here!

nothing as major as some of you guys, but i went from this:

using the innovative storage solutions, in-the-bag (4).  same set you can get from eglide goodies, only direct from them, it's $10 cheaper.  to be fair, i noticed that i didn't have the little bag with the air pump and gauge back in the bag yet when i took the pic.  but there is still a ton more room.  the only downside is that it doesn't fit quite the same way that it would if the bags weren't extended.  the regular bags it'll sit flat, but with the extended bags, the bottom of the bag is curved where the cutout for the exhaust is, so it sits a little crooked, and of course, the amp on the other side.  good thing the double sided tape that the moco uses to hold that amp in is not that great.  i just slid the amp up, put the bag in, then slid the amp down again.  it's still worth the $60, imo.....  i'll at least be able to put the saddle bag liner in when we go on a trip now.

Went to Vroomshoop, Netherland, and bought an orange 2014 SERK for my friend. 800 km from home (500 mi) was closest I could find. Could have gotten a grey one cheaper but he only considered orange.
Started at 16–30 and was back home 01-00 in the morning. Most of riding time in the rain. Found the stock seat to be OK. Found my new helmet to be PERFECT.
I highly recommend the dealership in Vroomshoop (what a name for town!) if you happen to be there. Family run for 3 generations. Nice people and lots of goods!

( just need to dyno shtine the bike next week ) RSD air cleaner, and remover the tour pack rack.  Very happy with the way all the mods turned out. Love the bike with out the rack.  Check .

Spend the weekend in Charlottesville, VA and rode around in VA wine country. Great friends, fantastic weather, lots of twisty roads, and no traffic!

Oh by the way, the Danny Gray solo BO seat is far, far superior to the stock seat comfort-wise and actually looks pretty good, too.

Another shot of my bike with Danny Gray Solo seat which I installed right before the VA vineyards trip over the past three days. As I said before it is a very comfortable seat. I rode for 500 miles and no problems with comfort at all. And as much as I think the stock seat looks better, the DG does look good and goes well with the lines on the bike.

You will really like that, Jesse.  I had to adjust my mounting bracket to really take advantage of the new LED on Ginger.  I like my low beam a little bit higher than called for with the factory/halogen light.  The phase 7, once you get it set, will make you wonder why you waited so long.  Plus, with the look it has just sitting gives the bike a different look.

Ordered clutch and brake hoses to get ready for a w1 575 swap.
I'd like to get that done before next weekend.
Picked up some more Amsoil for the oil change this weekend.
Hoping to ride it Sunday.

Rumor has it that y'all have really good pork tenderloin sandwiches there.  So a buddy of mine from Long Island are meeting in PA, leaving the trucks there, meeting a few other friends outside of Chicago, then ending up in Guttenberg, IA.  We'll spend Saturday riding around there, Wisconsin (and maybe Minnesota), eat a lot, cruise a bit on Sunday morning, then ride home.

Quick 4-day, 3,000 mile RTE.

We have fried pork tenderloin sandwiches that are about 12" in diameter pop some onions and mustard on a bun and pure glory.

Awesome riding up around Dubuque on the Mississippi River. Holler if you got any questions.

Those came off mine about the same time as the reflectors on the forks and bag guards   ;)

Dropped mine off this afternoon for a new rear sneaker and installation of the HD dual cartridges in the front end. I'm optimistic that the front suspension mods will make a noticeable improvement.

Post by: phato1 on May 20, 2014, 05:27:30 AM
I'm hoping that the cartridges will minimize the " vague" feeling best described as a lack of feedback from the front end during moderate speed sweeping corners.  I did notice that the '14 's exhibit less brake dive and feel a little more "planted" with the single cartridge setup they have. I guess I'll find out if it helps soon enough...

I have been bike sitting for one of my brothers 2003 RKC. Went for a ride and immediately realized how bad the stock front is compared to the Traxxion Ak20's on my CVO. Guess I just forgot about how stock was after riding several years with the AK20's.

Stuart, I don't usually disagree with you but I gotta say I do on this one. I have the Ohlin 6's on the rear and the HD cartridges on the front and I think the combo is fantastic. Spent a couple of hours on the new 6 GTL BMW a little while ago and obviously it handled great but I would put my bike "right there". Maybe I am just that "brain washed"..

I never touched the rear.  Set up is still bone stock. The front end the way I have it works fine for me. I have progressive springs and I find the front is just right.  Brake diving isn't too bad.  You gotta have some. Just the the hd double cartridge didn't do it for me.  The set up is good for Florida' s  mostly flat roads.   Just sayin.

Talked with Frank Dragos about the new pipe I have ordered; Their chromer is having an issue with their polishing process so all the chrome pipes are delayed...
Frustrating as I can't wait to install the Dragula! The FatCat makes good power and its beautiful but..DANG! it's loud! Hoping the Drago will be more pleasing to these tired ears. In the mean time, before leaving for work today, I had to go out to the garage and just admire the silly thing. :apple:
I love this bike!

Franks pipe has plenty of bark but it's a bit mellower then the fatcat imo. I've run both.

Wish me luck!

Picked up the bike from the dealer after the HD premium dual cartridge install. Right away I noticed that the brake dive is much reduced and the front end does have a stiffer and more planted feeling, no lack of feedback from these at all. I need to take it easy until the new rear tire gets a few miles on it - just my habit, might not be needed but it's the way I've always done it - Later this weekend we have a nice long ride planned and after that I will have a better idea of just how much improvement has been made. At this point it seems to me like it's a definite improvement.

Went to go for a putt yesterday and the engine turned over once and then the starter just clicked. So, pulled the battery, made the fifty mile trip to the dealer to have it tested. It checked out to be bad so they gave me a new one under warranty. Run back home and install new battery, start bike and go for the putt two hours late.
All's well that ends well.

Went on a 400 mile ride to get a hotdog. The one and only Hillbilly hotdogs of Lesage, W.V. They have been on the food network with their 'HOMEWRECKER" hotdog, 15 inches of pure unaltered Americana covered with everything. If that isn't enough they have a 30 pound hamburger that feeds 50 if you brought a crowd! If you are ever near Huntington W.V. it is definitely worth the trip!

Decided I was going to try my king TP in the solo position but don't want the arm rest easy chair backrest so I decided to get creative on filling the holes... Removed my mid frame heat deflectors where my heated gear controls were located. Moved the switches and plug into the now vacant holes in the TP lid.

Like the looks on your buddy's bike. See if he can give you the specs on the one he has and also how tall he is. From what I've read on Madstad's site, I should be getting a 14.5" shield. Don't know if I can live with the looks of it though. The 13" I think I can get by with. Just don't want to spend over $300 on something if it isn't going to work for the wife on the back.

Stock
10" windvest -bought from a former coworker. WAY TOO SHORT
13" KW Flare - Didn't fit for crap and it beat the hell out of me.
Current is a 13" LRS Mako. Best one so far but still get beat up with the half helmet on the highway. Debi doesn't complain about the wind but I know if I'm getting it with the 1/2 lid, she's getting it worse.

Now we did get new Nolan modulars this year for traveling and that makes one helluva difference on the highway but always looking for something better in the shield department.

I left the lights on for over a hour and a half in the driveway after a nice ride this morning (had to get the lawnmower out...which reminds me, the lawn still needs to be mowed...ugh), so had a panic attack whilst putting on my boots that I'd have a dead battery. Thankfully, Scarlett started right up and got her back into the garage. It's near 100 degrees right now at 1:40....hmm...think the lawnmower may have to sit out front a little longer. Thank The Lord we have a putting green in the backyard!

That's how I paid for my new Premium ride cartridges for the front end. Gotta love a rewards card that actually gives you rewards you will use.  :pepper:

Lol, I meant my second anniversary of having my CVO. Going on 5 with the Husband . Not sure both of us will survive 18 more, good job! We were both pretty set in our ways when we started, but hey, he got me into this CVO & riding obsession, so that makes him my true HERO! Plus, no one else could live with me.

Clutch fluid is always like that.  I completely flushed mine when I did handlebars and it looked like that a week later.

So it looks that way through the mechanics of the system vs. possible moisture contamination.  I was worried I somehow had a bad seal on the cover.

Got caught in some crummy weather over the Memorial day weekend on a multi-day ride through the mountains.  Even had to change course to avoid winter weather advisories, and even then, we still ran into some snow.

Anyway, got the bike all cleaned up, detailed, and waxed again with Royal Blue.  I've even gotten some friends sold on Royal Blue now too....Its some great stuff!

Haha, you ain't kidding!  We left out of Breckenridge at 730AM Sunday.  Me and the Mrs both had full leathers, heated jackets and gloves, and rain gear on.  Rain/fog/snow into the west side of the Eisenhower Tunnel and out the east side the trees and grassy areas were snow covered.  Roads were just wet, but we managed to find some cold-ass rain and tiny hail coming down from 11000'....

Still wasn't as bad as the time we were going over Vail Pass at 10PM in October on the way home, with more cold rain and thunderstorms.  with 18" apes, I felt like I was holding onto to 2 lightning rods that day.  Vail Pass was dark as hell that night!

Springtime in the Rockies!

Nice pictures Jesse!  I forget how green it is up there! 

Here's one from our group on Memorial Day weekend.  This was on the west end of Paonia State Park, about an hour south of Glenwood Springs.   More bikes than I normally prefer, but it was a good group and was a great weekend.

Had my "medium" distance seat re-covered/stitched. The grey didn't come out as I had anticipated, but the stitching
is a pretty solid match for the pin stripe, overall pretty pleased with results. Next winter I will re-do it so the grey matches
more to my liking..

The changes to the bike are all payin' off right now. The Drago pipe sounds SOOOOO much more pleasant and the new bars are great!  Polished and waxed, lookin' good, but of course, hit the rains in OK.

Nice!  I'm originally from Mountain Home and went to college in Fayetteville. A lot of good roads for riding.

Wired up the GPS and quickly set up the new tent for the first time to get ready for a 10 day bike trip to Colorado!   Also, one of the ladies in the sub had to sit on it today...   She couldn't resist.

Bike is looking good. There are some issues with the chrome peeling on several CFR slip ons. There's a thread going around HDForums about it right now.

Swapped out the Wood directional lifters with a set of S&S lifters, pushrods and installed a set of S&S race tour mufflers. The top end is now whisper quiet and exhaust has a nice deep tone to it.  It's like a new bike again.  Felt great on a short 30 mile trip to check out all the new parts.

Nice, we'll be heading up to the Maryville TN, area next weekend on "Blue" via the Cherohala & US129: it's one of our favorite rides. 

We'll spend Fri, Sat & Sun cycling around the Great Smokey's with friends before heading back over the Dragon and Cherohala and down to Atlanta.

Just got the Bushtech out to make sure I remember how to pack our tandem bicycle and cycling gear in the trailer: it's been a while!

Gotta love people that ship their bikes to a motorcycle rally.......
With all due respect, some people work a tremendous amount (65-80 hrs/6 days per week) and use their mc as their release on the 4 days a month that they are not working. It can be very difficult if the rally is a entire day or more away to be able to make it at all. If that is your lifestyle then why not ship your bike there, fly in when you can, ride and enjoy like crazy and then get back to "doing your thing" that allows you to be able to support all the people that depend on you (not to mention be able to afford this expensive hobby..) and put around 10000 miles a year loving it.
Its kinda one of those "until you walk a mile in my shoes" type of deals..

You should walk a mile in someone's shoes before insulting them. That way they have to chase you barefoot, and you have a big head start.

I agree it's a personnal choice. My choice is that if I can't ride the MC there I am not going.

As long as I am riding stateside I can ride anywhere. Might ship it to Europe next year for a week of EU riding. But that is in an airplane not on a trailer
Are you checking that bag sir or is that a carry on?  :huepfenlol2:

That just about sounds like a bucket list adventure.

Didn't do it yet, but will be going out in the garage to see just how bad the damage is from a dump truck that passed me last night with a full load of mud/dirt and a door that was not latched. A quick look last night under the mud shows at least one big divot on a bag lid and several chips in the fairing.

When I was in the market for a GPS.....I was debating between a 660 and a 665.....I called Xm/Sirius to see about a deal on two subs...one for the Jeep and one for the bike......would not budge on price....so I hung up and ordered the 660.
Now I have a free year in the new Jeep and am amazed at how poor the reception is....certainly glad I'm not paying for it!!

If we weren't leaving on a trip next week I probably would of held off for another 1,000 miles. Never noticed any noise from the tire, but you sure notice a difference in handling when you put the new tire on.  ;D Here in Indiana there isn't allot of twisty roads.

Nice looking bike. A friend of mine just came back from a trip out west on his. He said the bike performed well but had to stop and get new tires to make it home. He only got 3000 miles out of the old ones. That was very disappointing to him. Understandably so.

I've read up on them. Suspension and engine power are impressive. The biggest problem I have is the looks. Just can't hold a candle to my CVO. Don't care for the rider position as well. But probably the most important issue is my wife don't like them so no use in going any further lol.
Title: Re: What did you do to or on your CVO today?
Post by: 05Train on July 30, 2014, 12:20:17 PM
I didn't care for my RT at all.  My GS Adventure on the other hand was more fun than should be allowed on two wheels.  That bike oozed character, and the wife loved riding on the back (which is bizarre, since she's only 5'2" tall).  Were it not for outrageous oil consumption, I'd still have that bike.

The K16 has more of a relaxed, upright (rather than arms forward and feet back) position that is comfortable for me.  Of course, I'll still add highway pegs, but that's just a no-brainer.  There's no getting around the fact though that they're just not pretty bikes (in the same way a Harley is).  My GS/A was badass to look at, but it wasn't a, "damn that bike looks good" at the gas pump sort of bike.

The K16 ain't either, though it's far from ugly.

I dunno, we'll see what happens at the dealer.  I'll either spend the weekend putting everything back on my bike, or loading down the classified section with a bumper crop of parts.

The Kuryakyn p/n is 5008. They are H3 halogen bulbs and so far have met my goal of filling in the area under the Daymakers with light. If you have a pile of extra cash laying around they sell an LED conversion for them -- but it's a few hundred bucks for that in addition to the $350 that the lights cost. I skipped that because I wanted the light to "spill" more than the LED's do.

I can't directly compare them to Motolights because no one I ride with has those. I can say the installation of the Kury ones was straightforward and clean.

Took her in for the 15K service.   :2vrolijk_21:




put 5K on her in the last 3 months alone. It'll be time for some serious lovin on the bike this winter. (unless I spy a hellva good looking 2015 model before then, which looks doubtful).

I agree. Any longer trips or cooler weather and that tour pak is on and I always worried about the way it kind of hangs out over the ass and detracts from the taillights. That LED light bar is pretty too IMO. I got a great deal on it from a forum member but the trim was in Cobalt blue as it came off a 2010 CVO Ultra. I sent the bezel to Joe @xtreme and he absolutely nailed it and I thought it was cheap as well. All came together nicely. Really think the screaming eagle emblem sets it all off.

Say it ain't so! I can't imagine getting all the mods done all over again and the seat and handlebars the way i want them. I finally have mine the way i want it minus a couple tiny things. I honestly haven't had a single new bike catch my eye from hd since 12. Maybe the 15 cvo sg will but i doubt it.

Considering that my bike can pretty much be return to stock in less than a day (other than the bars) and I can sell off the stretched bags and fascia, I don't have a real attachment to it that I can't overcome with a new bike.  :2vrolijk_21:

What I did on my CVO today.....rode to work and looked at the new 2015's before the morning meeting....decided thare ain't nuttin that can pry Ginger out of my hands this model year....went outside, looked at my 2012 and had a really big smile on my face.....will have that same smile on the way home this afternoon.....
I like my 2012 and all the fun/issues that came with her.  It's why I spent the $30K or so in the first place.  My plan in March 2012 was to keep it for many, many years.  After 2 1/5 years and 25K miles, nothing has changed my mind.
Ride safe, fun and keep it between the ditches...

UPDATE:  just saw the blue and orange 15 SESG. Sho b purdy. But nope, keeping my 12 :2vrolijk_21:

Got drenched in a monsoon last time out, so gave my '14 SERK it's first bath.

Then put on two coats of carnauba (man, those Agitator wheels may look great,
but are a pain in the ...'hands'...to clean!) and took her for a couple hours' spin.

The bride doesn't understand how a good detailing can take HOURS!
Maybe she's jealous?

Well, After getting my 2012 home from Las Vegas, I detailed her completely. What a BEAUTY! My ONLY complaint after 700 miles is that the after market mufflers are a bit too loud for my tastes. I prefer a quiet rumble to a dull ROAR :D  I would like to TRADE these muffler for stock HD CVO mufflers in similar (immaculate) condition. These have 3000 miles on them. Any takers?

Could you put a different baffle in these pipes? Maybe that would do the trick to tone it down a bit, vs. changing out the whole exhaust.

That may be a solution, but I am also a stickler for STOCK and would be happier if the bike were 100% original. These mufflers are beautiful, and do sound really good, but they are not stock and too noisy for my tastes, so quieting them with different baffles would resolve one issue, but not the other.

Hardwired my old Zumo 550 to the wiring in fairing, tried a Zumo 660, didn't like it prefer my Zumo 550.

Installed and wired a Permanent Gerbing Temperature Controller on the left mid frame heat deflector.

Installed a my  Rebuilt by Traxxion Dynamic set of Bitubos Shocks. Had original set since 2010, thought it was time for a rebuild.

Greased neck bearings.

Finally was able to install the garage door opener.  A little bit of a hassle, would not have been so bad if the instructions were more clear.  Lots of errors and omissions in the instructions, which they probably do on purpose.

Anyway, works great, certainly worth the effort.

Added another 100 miles to the new bike... rain and all.  Great for cooling down...

Also installed the fans tonight with the wiring.  Fully functional...

Installed the caliper mounted lights.  Just the lights.  Need to finish the wiring some other day as we are going riding tomorrow.  :carrot:

Finally got to ride the bike (life has gotten a little too hectic as of late) to pull the trigger on a CVO RG Ultra or Limited. The trigger was not pulled.  :(

Not pulling that trigger Cam means you still have the ammo in your pocket!!   Glad you got a ride in.....

Removed the freakin reflectors from the lower legs upon my return from picking up my new CVO RK last night.

 Changed mirrors, adjusted shocks, removed and cored the mufflers, today. Did get to try the cored mufflers for about 10 miles. Still a little too quiet but I may get used to it. Wish it wasn't raining here so much the last couple days,

From Dunlop's website regarding balancing.
It is essential that tire/wheel assemblies be balanced before use and rebalanced each time the tire is removed or replaced. Unbalanced tire/wheel assemblies can vibrate at certain speeds, and tire wear will be greatly accelerated.
All Dunlop street tires should be installed with the balance dot at the valve. Wheels may be balanced with spoke nipple weights, lead wire or self-adhesive rim weights. Consult the motorcycle manufacturer for approved wheel weights.
Dunlop does not recommend the use of dry or liquid balancers/sealers and will not warrant tires into which these materials have been injected. Tire and wheel assembly balance must be checked with a balance stand or computer wheel balancer.

Then I'll buy a new tire if that time comes.  Too many ugly weights and too many falling off and damaging fenders.

I've got an appointment at another dealer who's 30 minutes further from the house to do a re-balance and otherwise double check the work.  It's not as conveniently close to where I work as my former service center, but...   Well, I'll leave it at that.




I like that .... "my former" part, bikes cost us way to much to settle on shoddy workmanship from the dealers. You're lucky you have choices unlike some of us.  :(

Personaly I would have taken the old weights off and cleaned the glue residue off myself. requested chrome weights be put on when balancing.

Interesting reading. I see you have a comment on it already from someone at your former dealer.
You're dead on about the customer service aspect of things. I use a different dealer than what I started out with a little over two years ago because of similar issues.

I was glad to see someone at the Dealership actually commented, hey that's a step in the right direction. As has been said I too have had less than pleasant visits to my local dealership. Unfortunately there aren't many options for visiting others.

Great blog article... I think sometimes dealerships work on so many bikes they forget how special your bike is to you as the owner - big mistake. My local dealer is close to home, next is well over an hour away so I hope things remain friendly.

Purchased a pair of Motolight caliper mounted lights and had them installed by my dealer when the bike went in the shop. Included was Ultra Bright LED lamps, wiring harness for FL and braided cables. I view these as a safety asset for the ‘triangle of light’ system. Had one issue – the bolts sent were incorrectly threaded so there’s a black bolt in place until I can change them out. Motolight still offers forum members a discount and are an excellent firm.

Well, the plan was to take off and ride to the mvgtg with my lovely wife but she had to go into work. I already had the day off so instead of taking the trip without her, just rode to k'ville hd on Clinton hwy while she toiled away. Walked in and guess who I ran into?  Deserthog (Simon) was on his way back to NM and in the shop getting his oil changed for the trip home. Saw him at the counter purchasing a shirt....would'a known him anywhere from the pics on our website.  We had a great visit (talked about an hour or so) and he was on his way.  I introduced him to the owners (DJ Brown and his father, Dile) and they discussed a possible future purchase... ;D
Really enjoyed getting to meet him after reading his posts and the pics from the site. Class act that Simon. Safe travels back home, brother.  The picture is after the service was completed and he's talking to the K'ville HD owner, DJ.

So at the moment I don't ride mine. The BMW and the Guzzi are much more fun to ride for me so the HD sits in my garage with stuff pilled on it. I only rode it 5K miles so far this year. I might add another 2K miles this summer but 7K miles is just pussy riding for any bike. (Although I be North of 15K in total this summer in total)

So I am either going to sell the CVO Limited or build a glass bar around it.

What is a fair price to list it for?  $29K seem realistic to be?  Going on eBay after new year.

Got caught in a small rain shower on the way home from the get together in Maggie Valley.  Still managed 510 miles. Only @ 450 miles left to cover tomorrow. Oh and had a front wheel weight come off and somehow hit my right boot sole as I was going along. Had to stop and check the bike over because I had no idea what the heck hit my boot.

Rode mine home from a weekend at South Dakota State, where I watched Jackrabbit victory on the football field Saturday night. The weather was great for an early fall ride!

Jack,

Where did you get your folding seat?  I have a backrest I would like to add one too.

Charles

The seat in the picture is a Le Pera and has it's own backrest. When I switch to the Hammock seat I have a Mustang backrest that mounts to the bike that does the same thing. They both make it allot easier for me to get on and off.

 Ride Safe

I wonder when Le Pera added the backrest.  When I demoed their seat they did not have one so I went with C&C.  I like the Le Pera better because it was firmer.  The C&C is too soft.

Fitted quiet baffles to my V&H twin slash ovals on my 14 SERK. The Dresser Duals had made it a bit too loud in my opinion. It now sounds more mellow and doesn't have the very loud "crack" on hard acceleration. Still loud enough for my liking. Also remapped the FP3 for the new baffles and took the opportunity to change the throttle responsiveness to "moderate" and to increase the idle speed by 20 rpm. Used the Autotune feature for the first time and she is running really sweet.

not today but took off yesterday afternoon and changed all the fluids on Ginger....including brake and clutch fluid.  Never changed the clutch fluid before so a bit nervous but all things worked similar to changing the brake fluid.  A big thanks to grc (Jerry) for the advice and great short-cut/time savings ideas.  Much appreciated for the help, Jerry.  The velcro idea made it so much simpler and was one of those "why didn't I think of that" ideas.
She's been flushed, washed, waxed and is ready for another day on the road....

Miss Susan, Hubbard and I rode the Back of the Dragon today to Marion, had lunch, then rode the big road back home. I hadn't ridden Rt 16 in several years and wanted to compare it to the Tail of the Dragon since we rode it last week. Back of the Dragon has a lot more elevation change that's for sure, and tighter curves.

Put the RK up on the lift in preparation for exhaust changes later this week. Then gave the SEEG a little love and rode her for the first time since buying the RK.

Used Autosol all over the exposed chrome while the bike is still somewhat apart. Lots of calcified water spots in those hard to reach arias. Now all the nooks and crannies are glowing like brand new.

Left a deposit on Hard Kandy Mercury CVO SG. Not sure when it's coming, I was told it might be after the new year if the dealer cant trade for one. The first round of CVO SG's in my area were sold before they hit the floor. Found a dealer selling at MSRP so I'll wait it out.

Received my TTS,2 inch Fullsac Cores, screens and installed them all this evening. Had an issue with the cd drive on my laptop but Steve Cole worked with me over the phone to download all necessary stuff from the TTS website. Thanks Steve..

Once I got that fixed I installed the cores in some 2012 mufflers Otis had and then installed a decatted head pipe, mufflers and Fullsac map.

Bike is noticeably louder and seems to spool up faster. One other beneficial side effect is that a vibration I had around 2k rpm is significantly reduced. The factory exhaust must have been in a bind or something, transferring vibration to the bike. Anyway I'm especially happy with the outcome!!!

That is a nice improvement.  I'm thinking of installing the same exhaust system on my S&S 124".  The big concern I have is that it is pretty low,  I already went to the 13" shocks for more shock travel but that adds minimal cornering clearance.  Have you scraped the pipes or do you think it will be a problem if it is ridden hard in the corners?  When I talked with Harry from Kury at bike week he checked my bike and told me I was almost through the exhaust I have and recommended the True Dual set up and told me that it was just slightly off on the performance.  I talked to Steve @ GMR and John Sachs and both disagreed & told me to stay away from the True Duals and put what you have on and cool it in the corners.  I like the sound & the performance your set up delivers but I don't want to create another problem.  I drive two up about 30% of the time.  I would really appreciate your thoughts on any clearance issues ?

Ran across this bike, which was make to look like a buffalo, complete with the fur and this amazing s&s Shovelhead replica engine.

Ray,, I lreally like the power cell. I have learned to be a little less aggressive in the corners.  Where I live it's not a biggie.  Mostly flat here. I went with John Sachs suggestion.  He likes this combination and it really works well. Every once in a while I might hear something  during a hard corner.  Stuart.

We met up with mikeytee (Mike) at the shop, had a great lunch and visit and got to see where the "stuff" is made at his house. All in all a great visit, ride and day. We took away a bit of desert courtesy of Mike.

Well, today was a great day. Rode down to see my pop yesterday in Summerville and to Low country HD today with him on the back. It's been almost 35 years since we rode together on the same motorcycle and I was the passenger then. My how things change. Great day.
We met up with mikeytee (Mike) at the shop, had a great lunch and visit and got to see where the "stuff" is made at his house. All in all a great visit, ride and day. We took away a bit of desert courtesy of Mike.

Sounds fun. High of 54 today. Left the bike in the garage where it has been for about 10 days. Supposed to be upper 60's mid week. May be the last crusade  :nixweiss:    :(

Great day for a ride. Temp in the 60's so I rode over to the nearest HD dealership in MD to see if there are any good deals on a Limited or RG. $3600 over MSRP! Oh well, I can wait...

Saw this beautiful green limited MSRP $29k. Normally not the color for me, but...

Really had a great time Friday.  Should'a stayed in SC as it was a beautiful day coming home on Saturday until I hit the NC state line.  Rained the rest of the way home.  Still, 900 miles in three days, great visit with my pop and with Mike on Friday and hey, a day on the bike in any weather is better than sitting at a desk at work.....

The fall colors have peaked and it was a perfect fall day, upper 60's, lot's of sunshine, and a light breeze. Saddled up with my wife and swung by my uncle's. Rode down to Ogden to check out this years #1 ranked pork tenderloin in the state. 100 miles round trip. Took the back roads nothing but orange, yellow, and reds. Beautiful!

Here is the tenderloin!

Kill it out back, cook it inside....can't get much fresher than that, Jesse.

Rode mine to work today after 6 straight days of rain.  Changed out my K&N back to the factory AF.  Took my lunch and rode over to K'ville HD West to visit my good friend at the parts counter.  Could not ask for a better day today weather wise.

Also sat on one of the new Limited low models.  Really liked everything about it EXCEPT the seat.  Felt like I was sitting in a hole and not very comfortable for the male parts.  Did like the new thinner/less wide primary cover....not too shabby and it's a retrofit back through '09.  That baby is slammed...shorter than my SESG (we measured).  Should be a great seller (if you change out that seat)

Last good AF cleaning was prior to heading to SC (two weeks ago).  Washed it out with the K&N cleaner, allowed it to dry, spot cleaned it a second time (again let it dry), oiled it (learned not to use much....a little goes a long way) and reinstalled.  Got back and it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in two years.  I love the K&N filters (have them in all my cars) but with the way the filter element sits in the weather on our bikes, it really collects "stuff" easy and I refuse to use the rain sock all the time....just when it's raining.  I like wrenching on my bike just like the next guy but I'm tired of doing the filter shuffle so often.  Even if it's newly cleaned, it looks like crap (to me anyway) after just a short time.
Just one of those obsesive/compulsive deals with me I guess.  I know it's clean, just doesn't look it.  I get a good discount on the stock filter at the local dealer.  What I save on the K&N cleaner and oil can offset some of that cost.

A long answer to a short question.........

Put the rain sock on inside of the AC, not my original idea, it was posted some time ago. Yep, you have to put a hole in it, on the other hand, you don't have to worry about rain.  In that same post someone said "pantyhose" does the same thing, if you don't want to put a hole in your SE sock.

Oh by the way, rode out to Englewood Beach for lunch, blackened grouper, as good as walleye.

Y'all have had some hot weather.  Been a cooler, dryer Summer here in East TN.  Last few weeks have been very wet, however.  I'm hoping that the wet stuff is done for a while.

Mark, Lord willing I'm headed down Texas way the first week of November.  Riding down to Houston for work.  Been to Houston but not riding and not for many years.  Looking forward to it and if there is time, hopefully be able to catch up with some members while I'm down that way.....

Depending on the length of your stay, I certainly hope you can get down to Galveston and maybe take the ferry across and do a loop around the bay.  Last year my brother and I took the coast road down to Corpus Cristi and back through the Hill country on Thanksgiving weekend.  Never dropped below 50.  Although a little chilly, chaps, heated seat, grips made it a very nice ride!

Would love to have that kind of spare time this trip but not to be.  I have to be there by 0700 on Wednesday so blasting down on Tuesday (or may start out after work on Monday) and on my way back home on Friday.
The bay ferry and Corpus Cristi rides sound like a blast....maybe next time down.

Jswerve,

I bought one early this year and had it on for about 2 weeks. I swapped it back to the stock 110 air cleaner. No reason, I just missed the 110 on the air cleaner. Go figure.

If you know anyone looking let me know.

They do look really cool though. I think they make the V of the v-twin standout.

I liked it when the MoCo introduced it and still like it.  Looks really good on our bikes with the agitator wheels.  Ya done gooder dare, Jesse.

I patiently waited for one to appear for sale at a fair price. Finally nabbed it. Sachs says it's probably Harley's best air filter in terms of air flow. He said the stock ac restricts a bit. I like the style so what the hell.

Just rode another 100 miles. Can't believe the weather right now. Upper 60's and low 70's and tons of sunshine. Looks like we get another week or 2 before putting the toys in the garage. Got 300 miles in this week so far.
Looks really good!

Battery light was starting to appear. It was almost 3 years on the original and it was time to replace.  Wasn't about to take any chances while on a 250 mile ride home from daytona on Sunday.  All good now.    Stuart.

SOLD IT!

At least one of them anyway... I sold my 2005 SEEG Jalapeno today and although I will miss it very much, I just wasn't riding it enough to justify keeping it.

It had 81,824 kms (50,331 miles) on the dial as of today, and when I purchased my 2008 Duracell the '05 had over 62,000+kms.  As most know those darling SEEG's really love the open road, so I'm pleased that it went to an avid rider.

Now it will get ridden on a regular basis with a very excited new Screamin' Eagle family member in the saddle.

Not only is he new to SE's, he's new to the Harley family!

26000 miles..  2 things Jesse I don't play around with on my bike.   Having good tires and a good battery.   I broke down once years ago with a bad battery.   Never again if I can prevent it.  Plus it's nice buying new things sometimes.  My tires were just replaced too.  :)

Just fried an original 2 yr old battery, always on a tender. Almost made it to Parker dam and it died going around a corner..........it was 108F. They told me they didn't trust a battery after 2 years there.

That sucks but it makes sense. I keep mine on a tender all winter. Temps in my garage stay between 36 and 40 generally.

Yesterday I rode the bike for about 150 miles doing some errands and then a nice twisty road for some fun.  Then I washed her when I got home.

Today I will ride her a couple hundred miles, but first I am riding her for a TV commercial being filmed on the Foot Hills Parkway.
