    Engine warning light

    My 2015 Rocket 3 Touring is showing the Engine alarm light off and on. rpm has no effect. If the low oil alarm is on, the engine doesn’t knock or show any adverse signs. I bought the bike with 2400 miles on the odometer. I rode the bike 2,000 miles this year. If the alarm is on, I can turn...

    Engine Guards for New Beast?

    Many years ago I was riding Big Red (2300CC) in West Virginia, rounded a curve on a road with high trees on each side thus hiding round the curve views and a fricking car was stopped on this 55 mph state highway. The result was I did a one and half gainer with full twist through the air with Big...

    Engine Guard Placement

    Good day everyone, As some others on here have mentioned, the highway bars are less than stellar! With the flex on both sides, one is much farther forward than the other. I'm just not sure which side is in the correct position. The left side is in the cut out of the rad shroud where as the...

    Codes and the Check Engine light - I am starting this thread in hoping that my Rocket friends can help out with the knowledge that they have. I am willing to admit that the dealers have better scanners that deal with the vehicles that they sell. However, most of them seem to lack the...

    When splitting engine cases for access to gearbox if there is a gasket between the jointing surfaces or is it only a sealant that is used?

    When splitting engine cases for access to gearbox can somebody tell me if there is a gasket between the jointing surfaces or is it only a sealant that is used? Thanks.

    Top Front Engine bolt size?

    Anyone know what the diameter of the long, top, front, engine bolt is? The one that holds the top of the crash bars. I need to purchase one a good bit longer, but the same diameter, so as to fabricate my sidecar mount. Thanks......Tim

    Mad scientist, building a R3-powered sports car

    Ooh I love that Rocket III engine! I make DIY sports cars and parts for other homebuilders (google <Locost cars> or go to <kineticvehicles.com> to see what I'm up to) and I fell in love with the Rocket III powerplant, so I bought a bike that had been rear-ended and after riding it a bit, am...

    Ooh man do I love that Rocket III engine!,

    I build oddball sports cars (you can see what I'm up to at KineticVehicles.com). I have one now that gets 100 mpg, it's powered by a three cylinder turbocharged Kubota diesel and the R3 mill would fit right in there. So I bought a 2004 model that had been rear ended, I've ridden it around for a...

    2020 Rocket engine guard heat.

    The right side of the engine gets pretty warm during summer riding season, so to cure 90% of the heat I did the following. Removed the stainless steel heat shields from all 3 headers and lined the insides with exhaust header wrap using silicone gasket sealer as an adhesive. I cut the heat shield...

    Engine Running Rough

    This is a repost of an issue that I had inaccurately described and with more information. Was riding Sunday and bike was performing flawlessly. Came out of a stop after lunch and after 10 or 15 miles, could tell the engine was running rough- it was like someone threw a switch. No engine or...
