Iíve never experienced this myself. Nothing compared to the smell of old carbed iron with leaded gasoline anyway, but then again I miss that smell.

I feel it handles much better than my TC dyna, and even a bit better than my TC RK I traded for it. It doesn't have quite as much lean angle, but that's down to the floorboards. Everything else it...

It’s a mixed bag. These new fenders are very thin and weak..easy to deform, so I can imagine that’s all the damage, but I’m just guessing from far away. If it can be bent back into shape and paint...

A guy I know had this and it was something about his vent connection being turned 180 degrees from correct position. Turning around to face the opposite way and re-tightening solved it for him. Sorry...
