She's getting painted

Hey..

So I got a Star classic a few months ago..
Its a bit of an oldie, but its in good nick and I'm really trying to customize her and make it a bit different so everything else!

Since getting it, I've had a custom exhaust made up, its pretty loud and has a really good note!
I had a seat re upholstered to a design I wanted... Looks sweet!
Now its booked to be resprayed..

I wanted flat black but wasn't sure, and the guy had some Harley parts he was painting in Harley denim black and he fairly effortlessly convinced me to go with that...
I won't have her for 2 weeks!!!
I can't wait though

Pretty good shot of seat, but still has the stock exhaust

If you like the matte paint finish I believe HD's black denim is the prettiest they have currently. I'm sure it will look great when done. Keep us posted.

macstar , Be ready to do the carb jetting boogie when you pop a custom exhaust on her.

As many can attest on here : ANY changes to the stock air box, air filter, exhaust almost 100% of the time will result in new jetting being required.

A PMS screw adjustment on the idle mixture and a main jet upgrade to a larger size.

The CC&D web site has a great chart for jetting/ exhaust and intake mods for comparison. Great data to be had on there.

My bike has the cobra slashcut 2" pipes and the K&N air filter w/ the RAK mod to the airbox, This required the PMS to go to 3.5 turns out
and the mains changed to 117.5

Also doing the AIS delete is an easy "anti pop" upgrade
on deceleration.

Custom exhaust is already done.. It runs completely fine so I'm not worried about it

It was filled with a black rubber grub, looked like balls, so I got a stainless hex head round screw that's the sane guage as the mounting screws.. Looks good I thought...
