    Engine doen't like over 95 degree ambient Temp.

    Engine runs great at 90 degree and below ambient temp., when the weather gets hotter the engine doesn't like to run it surges. When the weather is cooler and the bike cools off it runs like a champ. It's an 05, just wonder if it could be some kind of sensor, it throws no codes. Like I said if I...

    Engine oil level

    I find that the method of checking the oil level is not easy. On the motorcycle log, side stand, cold engine, run 1mn30 without accelerating, stop then check 3mn later. Do you control like that? or some other way?

    Front frame to engine bolt torque?

    I’m going to put on new dresser bars so I want to make sure it’s torqued correctly. In my book the only value I can find for this bolt is “See Note”. The problem is I don’t see the note... anywhere in the book. Does anyone know what the proper torque is?
  19. Engine rattle/piston slap query

    The Rocket is 7 months and 13,000klm old. When cold, at 1800 revs there is a loud rattle noise. It appears to stop at 2000 revs and appears to go away when hot. The dealer is yet to investigate ( 4 weeks booking time). Question - has anyone else experienced this symptom?
