isn't your bike fairly new? why did it go through 2 transmissions along with having a host of electrical issues?
Its a 2005 with almost 35,000 on the dial. I paid, $20,787 for that piece of shit..... Hahaha

Decided to finally fix the slow leak in my rear tire. Found a small nail dealer informs me they don't patch. New rear tire mounted and balanced $330...ouch!

Also noticed my Rush slip ons making some noise and getting some discoloring on one side so I pulled the baffles to find the packing is basically fucked. Oh well I guess it's to be expected after 7 years. Bad news is these mufflers have long been discontinued...so I ordered some V&H black Eliminator slip ons. Hopefully get the bike back together tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks! Shouldn't be more than an hour or so to get her back together, but now that I put a wrench on it this year, I'm ITCHING to order up some Yaffe monkey bars!

Also thinking about ditching the blower idea this winter for the Mustang and bringing the bike up to Fuel Moto for a 107 build...

Don't tell me what to do! Haha
That's fuckin crazy awesome, but $8k is a little more than I want to spend on a build for a Harley. My bike is currently just a stage 1 bike that most likely puts down 80 hp. The 115 hp of the 107 build will be a very noticeable increase and make for a fun ride IMO.

agreed for the most part. my built 103 puts down 108 horse 110 torque and it does all i need it do, including the most important part, leaving my father in law in the dust. but everyone always wants more.

Bike all buttoned up and remapped for the pipes. Sounds much more aggressive than the old Rush setup b

Waiting on a new trans case, got a new 5th gear too plus a few new transmission parts. With a bit of luck I'll get it back next week.

You see friends, the drain plug is sticking up just a bit too high. The heli coil used was too big, fucked up the case when he dropped the nut. ( no pun intended)

Its been a painful year fixing my broken shit.
