You don't have to worry about lubing the cable now 😄 glad you let everyone know the fix.Good news, guys. Well, good news for me anyway. I actually was able to find good info about my 'leak' here on the forum. Turns out that if your transmission vent tube is plugged up, the pressure will force fluid up the clutch cable and out the adjuster connector. First time encountering this issue ever for me. Damn mud-dobbers plugged it up. I hate those bastards. I need to get a new one now because while trying to clear it out, it tore so I just ripped it off to make sure it was clear. It's all good now. $4 part but a PITA to get at on a Softail Deluxe, but that's OK. Learn from me and the handful of others that have had this problem: check your vent tubes!
cool, rapier. sounds like a swell ride. ya sure got it warmed up in that many miles. me thinks you like the new motorsickle!Did about 270 miles today. Tried to go to the top of Mt. Spokane, but the road to the top is still closed. So, I rode south through The Palouse. It is just plain gorgeous with the wheat and other crops full and maturing. Got to Pullman and had lunch at The Emerald (long history with this place), then rode through the campus I used to work at (WSU -- Go Cougs!), then headed out to the road that runs through wife's family farm. Uh-oh! It's closed about ten miles in. They are doing a big rebuild on the road. So, I rode back to the mail N-S highway, and back north to Colfax, then out to the farm. Talked with wife's cousin who runs the operation. Things are going well and crops are in good shape.
Then I headed home. ODO shows almost 1600 miles.
Nice. I have the same cover in black on my Heritage.New bling for Daisy. Got the matching timing cover also. I like this old school look. Got 15% Veteran discount as well. Rode 60 miles to dealer in Asheboro since they were the only ones who had it. Beautiful back roads ride.
Harley has some work to do if they want to keep the grey beards too. Tuff choice between that Challenger and a Road Glide.
Thing that pisses me off about HD is they keep trickling out the "upgrades" a little at a time. Why wait for HD when you can get the whole package now from Indian?
Only thing HD has IMO is color options.
