I'd guess you could add at least 4" risers to the stock handlebars.

If you're changing the handlebars, you can probably go wayyy up. The curve of the bars is so long that there's a ton of cable...

Thank God it's only my left pinky. That's why I was able to ride home that night!

As for the cause? Stupidity and power tools while working on my mom's house. :( The pic is after they put it back...

Thanks, guys. That pic was actually 4 weeks ago. I did ride home the day I did it (3 hours, no choice) and figured I'd better get home before the pain killer they injected wore off. Wednesday they...

I'd think progressively wound springs would in general be superior, but would indeed suffer more fork dive on stopping. The softer section of the progressive spring lets the fork respond more quickly...

I know that guy's problem - he's riding on the wrong side of the road! :icon_fryingpan:

But seriously, if my bike were doing that, I'd get it to where it's doing that, and get the dealer to ride...

If you like your Sporty, you'll LOVE the new Softail.

Coming off an older Dyna, and with more than enough time on Sportsters, my new Low Rider is a dream. My initial concern was that the Low...

This would indicate that baking the gauge could get rid of the problem, something like 140 to 150*F (not C!!!) should do it. The good thing about baking is that the entire gauge would be at the same...

Glad to hear it! You may need to be firm with the dealer.

Another suggestion would be to adjust the shift lever down so you get a firmer upstroke when you shift from 1st to 2nd.

Yeah, that's what it sounds like to me too. Rare for a Harley though. Has the bike been dropped and hit the shift lever?
Sucks, but at least the HD trans is relatively easy to pull compared to a...

I've been wondering about this too. Never had the fogging with my Sporty or the tach on my Dyna, and those gauges are not sealed units - big holes in them.

Mine threw that and a bunch of others when I changed the bars without first disconnecting the battery. Didn't think about the difference in the bike without a traditional key switch.

Good for me to read things like this. I keep looking lustfully at a new Street Glide. The bike just looks right.

The Harbor Freight 3/8" and 1/2" torque wrenches aren't half bad. I connected them to my aviation mechanic's digital block (calibrated per FAA requirements) and those two were remarkably good (when...

This K&N has to be the bargain filter out there. Positively huge surface area increase over stock. Small but noticeable improvement in the top end. Nice intake honk to it. Very well made.

Thanks for that report. I doubt the performance difference is all that great, but without dyno tunes by the same tuner for both pipes, we'll never know for sure. All the Cobra stuff I've seen over...
