    Head gasket leak...

    Figured I'd ask the pros on here for a little advice. Noticed an oil weep behind the oil tank at the end of last season, finally got around to investigating and it looks like the head gasket. Not the cam cover gasket, that leaks on the exhaust side. Lol. No trace of oil above the head gasket and...
  2. Steering Head Bolt Tightening

    HI; My 2021 Rocket 3 GT makes a clunking noise when I come to a stop. Took it to the dealer, and they claim the steering head bolt is lose and requires tightening. They want $250 to do so. The bike is still under warrantee (~2500 miles on it), and claim it is not covered. Questions: Is this...

    Allen Head Hex Socket Size?

    When I bought my '06 Classic a few years ago the first thing I needed was a new front tire. I removed the wheel axle("spindle") to remove the wheel but I'll be darned if I can remember what I used on the axle or where it is now. Measuring flat to flat(is that right or should it be corner to...

    Removing cylinder head

    Hey there! Is it possible to remove the cylinder head with the camshafts still attached while the engine is still in the bike? Or asked differently: What MUST be removed from the bike/engine to lift the head? Thanks in advance!

    Clutch cable scratch my head.

    Some of you may have seen my last bit about clutch cables. That cable was too short. The previous owner had installed a different handlebar. The cable was very hard to pull the clutch lever. Plus he had moved the bottom cam off the alignment marks. I guess to get it to fit. I ordered a 6...

I dont want that. It seems to be a t55? ( t55 is loose) please advise on the proper bit tool to use for this...

    Head shake on decel

    A funny thing happened to me yesterday. Throttle closed or nearly closed, in 2nd or 3rd, I took both hands off the bars as I was coming up on a red light. As I did this, the front end of my R3R, shook side to side. I've always associated this behavior with higher speeds. Does anyone on here have...

    Real head scratcher

    My 2013 Roadster ran great since I got it last year, 36,000 miles on it now. I took the cam cover off to do a valve clearance check a few months ago, had the throttles off too, clearances all good so I put everything back. It ran ok but a little lumpy, and people on Facebook recommended...

    Righto.... Since new, my Roadster handlebars have sat a wee bit askew....the wheel points a shade to the right when i'm riding down the road. Bear in mind we ride on the left here. I know we put that down to camber but is it that or what? Of course, my front tyre wears more on the...
