  4. Is revving up bad for R3R engine?

    2018 Rocket III Engine Guards (50mm)

    Help finding a product (that I'm not sure exists) in the US! I've been searching for some time now!

  8. High frequency engine vibration

    My 2020 Rocket 3R engine has been very smooth for it's first 17,000 km. For the last 3,000 km I've been experiencing a high frequency vibration in the handle bars, foot pegs and seat. The vibration can be felt at any revs but is more noticeable from 4000 rpm. Vibration is felt when moving or...

    Once per hour or so, my engine seems to lose its power by half, starts making extra noises and rattles, and pops and backfires until I turn it off

    If I restart it goes away most of the time. Maybe I have to turn off for a minute or so. I just changed out the ignition due to the jiggle/off known issue. I also recently had it serviced at the dealership and now it drives crooked ever since I got new tires put on. This bike is posing more...

    Engine stalls after fill-up

    I live in southern Arizona. It's hot. Very hot. When I happen to fill up on the way to work, and the bike sits in the sun all day, riding home the bike will stall when at idle. I've seen on here that is due to over-filling. It's **** near impossible to not "over-fill" these bikes. After...
