    Anyone order from this site lately or know if he's still in business? I inquired about the EBC-HH brake pads a week ago now and no response. Just tried again. I can't take my R3 out of hibernation until I have new brake pads. Rears are 100% shot. I thought the word around here was that these...

    Rocket Monster mods finally done

    This summer finally saw the completion of most of the mods I wanted to do on my Rocket. There were many "you've got to be kidding me" battles along the way, almost like the universe was against me in getting it to this point. Most notable was the incredible amount of items shipped to me that...

    Upgrading your clutch springs?? What NOT to buy... MTC

    Do NOT waste your money on these!! Yes, MTC may make the best fibers. Yes, their $500 billet basket (installed here) is virtually indestructible but their clutch springs are actually WEAKER than stock!! How do I know this you ask? After rebuilding my clutch with all MTC parts it still...

    Any interest in adding aftermarket front turn signals?

    I'm wanting to add some aftermarket front turn signals but am having a hard time finding the hardware to do so. I would like to use fork clamps. I found one place that makes the style I want but not in a 59mm diameter which is the diameter of the Rocket forks. I know someone with a machine shop...

    Anybody have a pic of a factory flamed flyscreen?

    I have the factory flamed tank and am having my fly screen and front fender painted to match. I found a picture of the fender online but no luck with the fly screen. I know I saw one once somewhere but have no idea where. An example to show my painter would be nice. Many thanks to anyone out...

    Broken piston... top end rebuild (turbo motor)

    This is a continuation of the compression check thread I started here. I know there are plenty of pictures floating around of people's rebuilds but I thought I'd add a few more. I'll ask most of my questions here instead of in private conversations so more people can benefit and learn. I've...

    Well, spring is here. Time to put the model railroad away and start messing with the motorcycles again. I'm wondering how many here have done a compression check on their Rocket? If you've done one or had one done could you post your results? I did a search and only got a couple of hits...

    Got my first speeding ticket... ouch!

    Was out on Sunday testing a change I had just made to the turbocharger to actually lower the boost as low as it could go. I got on it in 1st gear in the wrong place at the wrong time and the next thing I know there's red and blue lights in my mirrors. First thing the cop says is the classic...

    Just a couple of low res pics

    Finally with the Rocket all put back together a friend came up on Sunday to go ridin' so I could have both of my machines on the road at the same time. These bikes are beautiful together (guess I just have good taste) and it was a pleasure riding each one. With the turbo the Rocket will whip...

    OBDII fuel gauge?

    I'd like to get an OBDII gauge like this one to display the TPS 0-100%, fuel level 0-100% and a couple other parameters. When I hook up with TuneECU the fuel level is displayed as voltage coming from the sending unit. So I'm curious if anybody is using the OBDII data with a similar gauge, a...

    How to run your Rocket with no gas tank...

    ... should the need ever arise. Mine hadn't run for six months so I wanted to get some fresh, ethanol free gas and Stabil into the lines and injectors before it sat for another six this winter. I have a new tank but don't want it on yet. This worked great! The handle worked perfectly for the...

    Numbers don't match???

    So I'm finally trying to get to the repairs on the Rocket I bought and wrecked back in March (actually wrecked then bought for those that remember my sad story) and I notice that the number on the engine doesn't match the number on the frame and ECU. Frame and ECU are both the same with...
