    Clutch shudder on release, need update

    I haven't been on the board for a while as i was too busy relocating from Michigan to Cape Coral Florida. I was having some problems a while back with the episodic shudder on clutch release and...
  2. Re: Can't remember how to remove rear frame cover/fender. HELP!

    Thanks guys.
    I had forgotten those two screws. Since relocating from Michigan to Florida, I no longer have a hoist to get it up on so I didn't do a good job of getting down on the ground and...
  3. Can't remember how to remove rear frame cover/fender. HELP!

    In cleaning up the rear fender area, I purchased one of the original brackets to do away with the beaver tail. A slew of people had trouble with the turn signal mounting brackets breaking on this...

    Re: Moved from Mich to Cape Coral Fl.

    Actually, the pipe is the stock header setup, and we cut it before the catalytic converter and then started adding other things. In essence, we welded on a short piece of 3" diameter exhaust tubing...

    Re: New cable but cluth still chattering.

    Keep us posted. A number of us have the chattering problem. Did you reroute the cable when changing to get it away from the pinch area by the motor mount? Rerouting helped my overall clutch action...

    Re: Lowering Bones

    Ride remains pretty much the same comfortwise.
    As for cornering, you're probably going to make contact a bit sooner simply because you've brought the parts closer to the ground. You may also find...

    Re: Old man with new bike

    It's scary knowing how many of you old farts are out on the highway. Do they make you ride with certain plates so you'll be easier to identify? Do you have to be off the road before dark? I'll have...

    Re: How low can I go??

    I'm sort of with Who Dey on this one. I ran the 1&1/2" bones for some time before I went to an air ride kit, and I always wished I'd gone with at least the 2" bones. I never noticed any change in...

    Nice job LaMont. Looking good. If I get feeling frisky next Spring when I return from Florida, I might start asking you questions about the NOS setup on your bike. Of course, I'll check install tips...

    Re: Another New Guy, Daytona Bound

    Welcome,
    This one I just lowered with the air ride. Previously I had it lowered it a bit less with the 1 & 1/2 " bones from DLP. Now, it's lower and adjustable too. I'd recommend starting with the...

    I loved mine when I had it. It was a fair compromise between dirt and street when properly equipped. It was too heavy, but with decent tires, a slight drop in gearing, and a Supertrap exhaust, it...
