    Hot starting issue

    Ok so the (unproven as yet) fix was to replace the battery, they were saying they’ve had a quite a few R18s fry their batteries due to heat, they tell me the high temps warp the plates in the battery, once they cool down they work again. I dunno.. so far no drama but I’ll keep an eye on it.

    Headlights

    I’m wanting to go to a smaller headlight 5 3/4 or thereabouts. Is anyone doing a plug n play headlight? Has anyone on here replaced their headlight and is it an easy job wiring wise (I’m used to ‘3 wires cut n solder’ easy). I’m just not familiar with the wiring on these. For what it’s worth...

    Hot starting issue

    My bike went in for some warranty work recently, dealer is 1 1/2hrs away, a good decent ride through peak hour traffic. Got to the dealership to find they had relocated, ok, jumped back on, hit start.. fumble and die, lightbulb warning came up on dash. After 3-4 attempts got it going. Got to...

    Fork questions..

    I know what you’re saying, but.. my last two harleys, a softail and a dyna were both lifted 1-2” front, lowered 1” rear, works great, doesn’t affect handling to any great degree, plus I like the way it looks, to me the r18 visually would look great with just a little more space under the front...

    Fork questions..

    Not really much to adjust there aside from preload, but not really the issue I’m chasing!

    Fork questions..

    I’m wanting to lift the front on my R18, I’m dragging the pegs everywhere …and before someone says ‘it’s dangerous, you’ll ruin the handling’ 1. It’s a cruiser and the handling is what it is 2. I’ve done it to a bunch of bikes in the past and it makes very little difference to the handling 3...

    They will.. I took mine off and there were some surface scratches, it’s hard metal on chrome.

    Risers

    Anyone who has changed risers happen to know if there’s any reason a set of Harley risers wouldn’t fit? Ok so the factory ones are joined for stability, but hey I’ve ridden harleys for god knows how many years with seperate risers with no dramas. Lot of nice risers available for 1” Harley...

    RSD valve trim

    These came on my bike and the left side received some marks during the bike being transported. I’m happy to touch up the black with some enamel, the marks won’t be super noticeable seeing it’s the left side cylinder. Open to offers as really they’re worth whatever someone wants to pay. Please...

    Engines and the future

    I think it’s worse than that, the planet likely does not have the mining capacity to produce enough nickel, cobalt etc. to switch every one to electric in the next 10 years like most governments are demanding. This is a sh-t show that is about to go down.

    Ripping apart the RSD seat

    My bike came with a brown fastback seat, the brown is just not my thing so off it went to the upholsterer along with a reshape, but lower all round, passenger section beefed up a bit with a not to king and queen chopper seats.
