    Strange Noise When Adjusting Preload

    I decided to increase the tension of my rear preload on my brand new R3 GT (50 miles on her). At some point turning up the tension I heard a fairly loud metallic "Clang". The bike did not drop down at all. I thought it might have been a valve stuck in a guide that decided to seat itself although...

    Old/ New Member

    Was a member several years ago riding a Carpenter Racing modified R3. I sold the bike a year ago but have very recently purchased a new 2021 R3 GT. I love the new look and the increased performance stats as well as the electronic advances. The Carpentered bike was scary fast but the upgraded...

    Locked ECU

    Fast summary: I took my Carpentered R3 to the dyno man for tuning after changing my exhaust system to Rebands from Jardines. He has the Tuneboy program and I have the cable.

    Strange Icons With No Starting

    The 2007 Carpentered Classic is up on the dyno but suddenly will not start. All lights, horn and instruments seem fine. Tried pulling in the clutch, raising the side stand but nothing at all happens when the starter button is hit. Inside the odometer window, on the right, are two flashing...

    Headlight Discussions

    Our stock halogen headlights are marginal at best. HID lights are unfocused and worse than the stock setup IMHO. The HIDs are like a light bulb, bright and meaningless because there is no focus.. If you want REAL brilliant illumination, it will cost you. I just installed two 5 3/4" Harley LED...
