Only thing that jumps out is the hypercharger air intake. They are designed for 100MPH+ racing and because of the ram air effect its difficult (impossible) to adjust the jet in the carb for hi speed riding and cruising / smooth idling.
Keep an eye on your spark plugs for the first few thousand miles, see if its running rich or lean the way you are riding it.
If you are not happy with the way it runs or idles, dont bother trying to adjust the jets in the carbs, you cant and it will drive you nuts. If you dont like the way that hypercharger makes the bike run then replace it with a cruiser intended intake pod.
The hypercharger looks great - thats why they end up on so many bikes.
One guy here about a year ago was trying to get a bike running right with that and aftermarket exhaust, and discovered the previous owner had modified the bike just for shows - he never rode it, never changed the jets to match the intake and exhaust. That is the extreme case, but some people really do buy nice motorcycles just for polishing and parking in the garage, and do not ride them more than 200 miles a year.
That could be why your bike looks perfect, it was hardly used.
Hey Guys, been a while since I've been here, but it's been a busy summer. Anyway, I last rode my buddy's 2000 Silverado edition bike about 6 weeks ago and it rode and shifted fine. I tried to ride it a couple of days ago and I can't get it to shift correctly. I take off in first and it won't...
I'm looking at Road Stars and am getting confused.
I have to confess that I'm mesmerized by the classic Harley carbureted idle sound.
I am interested in Road Stars because they say they have the oversized flywheel which is supposed to give them the classic Harley idle sound "potato, potato...
I have just purchased a new to me 2012 Road Star, with only 3500 miles. Mechanically, the bike is completely stock. This is the largest displacement bike I have ever owned, and I have several questions (that have probably been asked 1000''s of times before). Thank you in advance for any replies...
So I've had the blockoff plate kit for probably 2 yrs and it's time to use it.
This summer I fell for the cobra slipons that are nothing more than a louvered baffle unwrapped in a can with about a 1" outlet. Had em on about 2 days, riding thru town in the "canyons" between the brewery district...
I'am a new member to this forum. just bought a 2003 Silverado 1600 with only 7000 miles, looks new and runs really well. It's #972 out of 1600
