- Hi Guys, I'm just setting up the Touring Mufflers on my Work shop bike here so as to make some mounting brackets (back to the Chassis) so I can then build a Slip On Silencer kit for a couple of Customers.
Would some one be so kind as to take a couple of measurements for me so that I set this up accurately please.
And for your interest, this is what is inside the stock cross over box.
- Recently (last weekend) purchased a 2008 Rocket III Touring, to replace my 2004 VStar 1100. As far as I'm aware, everything is completely stock, other than some chrome parts being powder coated black.
Since I'm chattering... man, do I wish that stock windshield was about an inch and a half higher! And likely at some point, will add a very small riser to bring the bars a little closer. Other than that, I love it
I've been reading about TuneECU - thinking about grabbing a cable. If everything is left relatively stock, is there a reason to put a tune on, other than to open the secondaries? What tune would I be good with that opens it all up... keeping all the hardware stock. I want reliable and fun.
Anyways... about me. I'm Andrew... from Ontario, Canada. That's about it... hi!
- Just picked up a spankin new 2017 R3 Roadster. Still breakin the beast in. The wife wants passenger floorboards but Rivco seems to be out of the TR3125s. Grrr.. Then Im thinkin of some Viking bags unless somebody has a better option (not Corbin Beetles, wife says they're hideous but I like them).
- This is just a heads-up to many of you to think about replacing the battery in the Remote Fob
I've had couple of inquiries over the last couple of weeks from head-scratchers where the owners thought the system was broken - both of these systems had been in operation for over 2 years on the original battery. The good news is that they went that long but more importantly after new battery normal operation was restored
The signature is that it won't arm or disarm whether simply hands-free or even using the manual button
As reminder, a short press & release of the button will arm the system (dash led goes off) while a longer press & release will dis-arm (led comes on, ready)
But even that will not work if battery is low
For the small price of a battery I would recommend just replacing it annually as matter of course i.e. if you've had it more than a year i would say start thinking about it
Battery is a CR2032 and should be readily available
Thanks for listening & hope you are...
- for those who have seen the sad state of the previous garage after the fire with the burned relics of my roadster , car, workshop, and garden shed I Now can say ( except for the workshop paint and garage doors trims ) that I have plowed the last nail last week. in between I did some work on my new ride just to keep me going .. so here it is.
- Great times ahead. I belong to a group (Bonnevilleamerica.com) that has a Kentucky Rally every year. We are gathering next Thursday, August 28th, in Adairville Kentucky at the Trailer of Sin for 4 days of freedom. I went last year on the America alone and did 1526 miles in 5 days.
We are heading to Nashville Tennessee on August 27th to spend a day with my Cousin and her husband.
I have had the seat rebuilt and have a sheepskin cover.
I got a XL tourmaster Cruise bag for the sissy bar.
I have highway pegs installed
I have leather wraps on my grips which I love and a Go Cruise.
A phone mount on the handlebars.
This weekend I am going to check the tires and oil. Clean and wax the bike and set the second trip meter to 0. I expect the Rocket to perform flawlessly.
Ema my wife is going with me.
I have two questions.
1. What setting should I set the stock shocks on for a fully loaded 2 up ride?
2. Is there any other tools I should take with me other than the standard tool kit?
- With the tune from Hanso, Paul's complete three into one system and the Ramair my gas mileage is a little lower but not by much. Daily round trip to work use to cost me around $5.75 a day. Now the average is around $6.75 a day. Nice trade off for the extra performance. Was expecting a dramatic drop in gas mileage but that is not the case. After reading some of the post on here about gas mileage after Mods I figured i would post my results.

Because of his terminal cancer diagnosis, close friends and family are not sure he will make it to his next birthday.
“They handled it beautifully," Strehlow told InsideEdition.com. "It was just fabulous. I’ve never ridden in a sidecar before.”
His daughter Michelle Olson, 47, added, “He had the wind in his hair again. People we didn’t even know came out to support my dad.”
Members of the Milwaukee Police Department rode their own bikes among the crowd to provide a motorcycle escort for the 30-minute ride.
“I wasn’t on a motorcycle, I was in...
