SO my friend pulled up on his 03 Road Star, and I noticed the motor was pretty warm. To the point where his pipes were getting discolored at the head.
He was telling me that the bike seems to get too hot, then the idle races which is the result of carb over flow.
One point : I changed the oil 500 miles back with an OEM filter and 20-50 Maxima oil. New K&N filter, fresh plugs, Vance & Hines Pipes.
Has any one else experienced this issue and if so, was it solved?
Do later year Road Stars have oil coolers?
We are in Georgia and this issue is already occurring in 75 degree weather.
Thanks for your help.
