It's under warranty, right? So take it to the dealer. It could be related to the steering head/bearings, alignment or other issues. Stop throwing money at it until it's diagnosed.

I always use blue loctite on handlebar bolts. I never had that kind of problem and I don't know if that's the reason. But it sure can't hurt to use the stuff.

No way I would leave it there. Old guys with beards is no guarantee they know what they're doing. Hope it gets fixed right, but if not at least you'll have your moral victory.

You might want to think about getting your stock seat modified. It can be made lower, depending on the materials you choose, can even be more comfortable. I had a seat of mine done by Mean City...

There is no screw or mechanical way to adjust the idle speed. The screw on the throttle body is to adjust the opening of the butterfly flap. If you have a tuner you can usually change the idle, and...

Yup. I don't think much of the fuelpak but it's better than the dealer download.

I have those slip ons on my bike. I replaced the baffles with TTI's from DK Customs. It sounds and runs way better. You can get them for around $30 shipped, much less than the SE baffles.

Could be something as simple as having a bit too much oil in the tank. When you check the oil where is the level on the dipstick?

Earplugs have another big benefit- they help with wind noise which may be even a bigger cause of hearing loss than the exhaust.

Just a safety precaution. I don't think there is a section on the service manual that doesn't say to unhook the battery before starting the job. CYA from MOCO.

That conversion is not right. 21 ft. lbs. does not equal 28 inch lbs. If you multiply ft. lbs. times 12 you will have the spec in inch lbs.

Does the knock increase with rpms or road speed, or does it stay steady?
