Hello to everyone.
I am from Maine and am currently retired in Idaho . Bought a new to me 2006 Roadliner Midnight this summer . She's not pretty and has 45,000 miles on her but she runs good. Has quite a few bumps and bruises and it appears that I only have 40 psi from the fuel pump. Pumps are back ordered until Oct.
I also have a 2006 vulcan 900 with 5000 original miles . 1987 honda xl250R and a beater yamaha dt125.
Any ways that's it for me.

Thanks for all the links.
I've read most of the links involving the fuel pump . I tested it at the regulator (high pressure side) 40 psi . I've ordered the pump but still ride the bike. Seems to do OK , but I don't venture to far from home.
Thanks again

Welcome from California. Ditto on Keith's comment for pics, even if you think she's not pretty, she has an inner beauty we can all appreciate here.

Here are a couple of pics as she currently sits .
I have added the barons riser pullbacks which seem to work well.
I've had a lot of different bikes over the years including Harley's but this machine is quite impressive.
fairing , windshield to come.

If you aren't too gun shy about non-OEM parts I had the fuel pump on my 08 Stratoliner replaced with what I hope is a reasonable non-oem pump. I wasn't willing to pay dealer price for the part.

Just a thought.

With your risers, was it a tough replacement? Your brake cable looks like it is at about maximum extension.
