I installed the latest Harley-Davidson software update, including the Dealer Locations update. Everything went as planned!
sometimes ya just gotta air it out. clear the ports and chambers! 🤠Did 200 miles Sunday leading a group of 12 bikes, took it easy ran close to the speed limits and about 10 - 15 mph over what the corner signs said, never scraped a floorboard so I knew I was riding easy. Last 40 miles turned the wick up a bit and gave the bike her head a little, felt much better even though I still didn't push it at all, everybody sort of kept up and said they had fun and was glad I waited till the end so everybody had the cobwebs shook out. Rode to work tonight before winter comes back.
go kyle, mess up your hair, don't take a shower that day, smear some oil on your face and shirt and ask em if they are lookin for some biker dudes. take pics that will be a hoot. hell i'd tell em they didn't even have to pay me. 🤠My dyno appointment is Thursday at 9 am. Decided to check the weather for that day and...

Oh well, at least it won't be cold?
But, I really need to get it done.
Plus, about 3 hours from me in Fairhope, AL, someone is shooting some kind of biker movie and they need 600 extras and at present, they're saying you can make $125 per day. So, I am debating about applying for that:
FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WKRG) – News 5 is learning more information about a potential upcoming movie that could be filmed on the Eastern Shore. So far the City of Fairhope has not approved the production, which is proposed to be filmed in downtown Fairhope. However, city officials are expected to...whnt.com
Well, all I gotta do is send in a picture. I may apply just for the hell of it, but if shooting is going to interfere with my summer trip... well, then I just wouldn't do it. Who knows, we'll see.go kyle, mess up your hair, don't take a shower that day, smear some oil on your face and shirt and ask em if they are lookin for some biker dudes. take pics that will be a hoot. hell i'd tell em they didn't even have to pay me. 🤠
Could be.Any idea what causes that weird dip at around 4700 rpm? Seems unusual, wonder if its an instrumentation error.
sounds like you are there amigo, ride more and work less. the motorsickle mans dream. 🤠Well, looks like I won't have to retard the timing after all.
After changing the jetting, got out yesterday, it actually is starting easier. I didn't readjust the a/f screw at all from where it was when I put the 45 slow jet in, I just brought the idle back down to about 1000 rpm with the idle adjuster screw.
Got plenty warmed up both yesterday and today when riding and the idle hanging is almost completely gone. Before, when it was fully warmed up, when I come to a stop, the idle would hang between 1250 and 1400 rpm for about 2-3 seconds. Now, the idle rarely hangs and when it does, it's only at about 1150 for half a second. Off the line spark knock when hot is almost completely gone as well.
Yesterday I didn't get out on the highway, but I did today. Cruising 65 mph in 5th gear, brap the throttle and no spark knock. Cruise up to 70 mph and brap again, no knock. Get up to 75 and brap, no knock. Then from 70 mph, I didn't go WOT but I did get on it hard up to 85 mph (so roughly 3000-3100 rpm) and no knock. I also ran hard from a stop in first gear up to 35 mph and no spark knock.
So, Monday, I am going to swing by and schedule another dyno run.
Or at least damn close... until I decide I can get more out of it by changing the drive ratios and start looking at swapping out the trans and wheel sprockets. 😝sounds like you are there amigo, ride more and work less. the motorsickle mans dream. 🤠
Looking good Chief!Added a regulator since I did the stator. Goes in tomorrow. Should get her back tomorrow night. Not crazy about the numbers (108hp/130tq), but with true duals and CFR mufflers, I should have expected it. Huge numbers compared to the 78hp/98tq I was used to.
