Been reading up a bunch on
Cam
Pipe
Tune


Leaning towards keeping my warranty, getting Rinehart slip on's
SE tune

115 torque at the tire

Average torque
Cam
Pipe
Tune
125

Not that big of a difference IMO




A 2-1 exhaust will get you more powa and tq

I took the bike up to the Lake Villa area due to me having to stop at the indian dealer. On my way there and back, I got a ton of compliments when stopped. Do y'all get a lot of compliments when out?
Every once in a while if I’m on the cruiser. It looks like every other 20 year old Fat Boy rice burning clone, lol

I’ve have a few people stop and talk to me when they see the bmw symbol and complement/ask me about the bike, sort of why I like obscure stuff they either don’t know or they have a half chub when they see it

Down in Bradley having breakfast (yeah, I know it’s almost 3pm).

So, random question. Are motorcycle warranties just as good (sarcasm) as vehicle ones? I had gone to the Indian dealer to get something looked at and they said that it might not be covered. Not to mention, basically instead of them (indian) trying to prove the part or issue was their fault, I have to basically prove it wasn’t my fault. The fuck? This is with two different dealers. So basically, I can just wipe my ass with any warranty.

If you did nothing to void your warranty they will honor it. Sometimes you have to be a bit stern like asking to speak with their Boss or maybe their Boss's Boss.

I'm not suggesting you will not or did not raise your issue up the flag pole, but if it's valid, needed and will save you money then

I had something warrantied on my HD with no questions asked. Actually 2 things, but one of them the dealer damaged. It sucked that I had an issue, but the customer service was top notch.

After watching numerous CAM, tune exhaust video today, I just got off the bike and did what I think is the right thing. Ordered Rinehart slip on's and the SE tune.

115 torque, way better sound and I keep my warranty.


The 126 average torque off cam, 2-1 pipe , dyno jet flush my warranty tune for an easy $2,000 more just did not seem like the right thing to do.


Soon, no more stock exhaust



:fy:

Neutral is a bitch to find on M8 models. It's gotten easier for me now that it's well broken in. Mike said it got quite a bit easier for him after switching to Redline fluids.
