    What would you expect to pay for this work from either an all-makes shop (who may not know what they've let themselves in for, but would probably google and find youtube clips) or at a HD dealership...

    yeah, i've definitely beaten it way harder in way hotter weather, this is something new and I think unlikely to be related to heat.
  3. "Parade mode"/Overheat issue? Low power, feels like missing

    First things first, be gentle with me as I have never done meaningful troubleshooting on an EFI vehicle of any kind. I have a Buelltooth on the way, but don't have it yet, so I can't do anything...

    Things to check post-crash

    I had a crash 2 saturdays ago when a mail truck i was overtaking turned left as i was passing on the left. Long story short, I (my body) hit the outrigger mirrors on the front corner of the truck ...
  8. Is this the right forum for a crash story? Both I and the bike are mostly OK FWIW

    Before I wade in (with the intent mainly of just telling the story and also maybe warning people about Postal vehicles) is this the place?
  9. how can you determine what plastics an XB had originally?

    I know from searching that the VIN won't tell you what color plastics came on your bike originally.

    Sticker/badge/decal placement question

    I 'treated myself' and got a new flyscreen, and I may have a line on a used cherry bomb airbox cover that's in better shape than the cracked one I currently have.

    The flyscreen comes with a...
