    Rocket III as a first bike?

    My caveat is I did ride a dirt bike as a kid. But after 30 years not riding I borrowed a buddies Vespa to take the road test for my license and promptly bought a Rocket. Now into my second Rocket and more than 80,000 miles combinded, without having never taken a class I will say it is...

    Don't forget the sealing washers...

    I’m on my fifth oil change on the GT and still using the original washers. No reason to change them.

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    Well for sure there is some pressure, it not being a fairing and all. The time I rode with you I dont remember you having the Powerbronze, did you get it soon after you bought the bike?

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    One thing I have never been accused of is riding like a grandma, lol. I have had my GT to maximum speed and with over 40,000 miles so far I have experienced no problems from the Powerbronze beyond having to replace some plastic bushings a while back.

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    I agree with Maurice, lots of folks don’t ride enough to really need a windshield. But if you ride, a lot, such niceties become necessities.

    No more speed shifter!!

    Those are my exact symptoms, thanks for sharing. I will indeed have the dealership look over the quick shifter. Was the dealer Tucson Kawasaki KTM Triumph by any chance?

    No more speed shifter!!

    I have no doubt something in the tune is causing the issue but they claim not so I am looking for a way forward that includes using my speed shifter. Hopefully someone else has had the issue and figured out the answer, lol.

    No more speed shifter!!

    Well I went ahead and sent my ECU up to DNK for reprogramming and it does have more oomph! But for some reason when I enable the speed shifter I get an alert saying the transmission has an issue and the speed shifter still wont enable. As long as I dont try to enable the speed shifter...

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    Yea I have had it to max speed with no issues with the Powerbronze, but its entirely possible I have just been lucky. The hard plastic mounting bushings did fall apart on me at one point but Powerbronze replaced them on warranty. So I actually did remove and retighten the fixings on that...

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    I have never tightened mine again since I first installed it. Is there any chance you were over tightening? Just trying to think of possibilities.

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    I do have the extended one and have had it in all positions. But I am going to inspect it more frequently now.

    Danger! POWERBRONZE EXTENDED SCREEN

    Wow that sucks, glad you are ok. I must say though that I have over 40,000 miles on my Powerbronze having gone 140 mph and have had good luck with it. Your story is a good thing to pass on, I will be watching it closer than before. Thanks for the update.

    Peak Horsepower

    The old fella aint very big but it gets so hard a cat couldn’t scratch it. So that is torque not hp?

    Peak Horsepower

    This is what I mean, I am sure this is a brilliant explanation but how that translates into the real world baffles me. If I have two bikes, one with 100hp and 75 torque, and another with 75hp and 100 torque given every other variable is the same which one is doing 0 to 60 the fastest? Which...

    Peak Horsepower

    I have gone on very few rides were I have not hit the rev limiter at least a few times. Having said that I still have never heard an explanation of how the difference between torque and horsepower is manifested in real world riding. Well at least in a manner that is understandable to my...
