  2. 2008 ABS problem

    General Harley Talk
    Tell me you capped the ports off with some bolts? And didn't just leave them open. If not, and that thing sees a need for ABS actuation, its going to blow the contents of the accumulator all over the side of that scooter. You also need to be aware of the dangers of pressurized brake fluid...
  3. 2008 ABS problem

    That lamp (diode?) is illuminated by the processor in the speedo head based on information the ecm sends down the buss circuit. There is no turning it off. I guess you could take the speedo apart and just break the lamp.
  4. New models are in LOL

    General Harley Talk
    So far the Livewire has been a dog turd for the MoCo. Two months late getting to the dealers and arriving with issues. That's no way to introduce a new product, but seems to be the Harley way of late. Other than the pre orders, they are not selling, and the ones that do sell are going to...

    Heres the stops from the dive bar run. It was a frosty morning so the turnout was light. First real cold one of the season. Meetup and first stop was the the Inn at Mt Holley Springs. They got sold and closed after the planning for the event was set. So no warm up and lunch from them. So...
  9. Problem with misfires between 3000-4000 rpm.

    Harley-Davidson V-Rod
    The epa certifies emissions by weight. Grams per mile. Basically the vehicle runs a closed course simulation on a dyno in a sealed room. The fuel and air used are measured as is the exhaust from the vehicle. They also measure all the other emissions from the vehicle, anything that makes it...

  11. What did you do to your FXR today?

    Harley-Davidson FXR
    He could change his road name to Capt. Moon. It would prolly help with tailgaters. When they get too close, just stand up and wink that high mount stop lamp at em.

    Only if you have dainty little sissy hands. But it will try to suck rubber gloves off of ya.
  14. Whacked battery

    Electrical, Wiring and Lighting
    Well you start by checking the voltage of the battery, static, 12.6 is full charge. If its less, you really should charge it up. Then start the scooter and see what it is after running at 2500 for a few minutes. 14.5 is good. Less than 13.5 is bad, mre than 15 is also bad. After that you...

    So open the drain on the carb, make sure its getting plenty of fuel. After that pull the air cleaner and start the scooter. Rev it up, then slap your hand over the suck hole. Pull your hand away before it stalls. Repeat a few times. Let us know if that fixes it.
