 I recently removed a long term Physco from the back seat of my bike and picked up a ton of power in all gears. Best mod I've made in 9 years.


Psycho can be kinda like alcohol, can be amazing but too much Psycho not so much! Glad you were able to move forward Steve. LOL

Steve, too many of us have gone through those same diagnostics and, fortunately, found the fix.  Some poor bastards just refuse to do the troubleshooting and continue suffering the poor rideability or even the ride just saying, "nope fatboy, not getting on today."

Mine was giving her personal trainer rides. After nine years that's a tough pill to swallow. I still have a bad taste in my mouth.

Oh yeah, anytime one of these machines can't remember who's responsible for filling the tank it's time to look for younger trade in.

When her odometer hit 50, she started acting up, blowing fuses and shorting out over nothing. Maintenance cost skyrocketed. The top hole started making a lot more noise yet would close tight if you tried put a plug in it? Lower end started acting up too. Morning rides were out of the question. Even it you managed to get her started, the clutch would slip as soon as you goosed it a little too much and she would just stall out? I tried oil changes, lube, nothing would bring the RPM even close to redline. Finally, I took the back rest off, popped the clutch and pulled the longest wheelie ever.

Wow.  Man that's shameful.

Tough decision for you I'd imagine but also the right one.

It's amazing the things you can find at the surplus and returns desk.  The smart ones learn that sometimes a discount just isn't worth the trouble with some systems.  It's kind of like fishing; there's a reason some are catch and release.

Steve sorry to hear all this but this was the funniest thing I have read in a long time.  Clearly you are moving on. Having replaced my "Psycho" years ago I am sure you will find a much improved accessory for your bike (and life)!
