I would do a search in this site for Baisley Spring. There are literally dozens of posts describing it. Due to the location in the cam plate, I would probably wait until you have some other reason to go in there like cam tensioners or inner bearings or a cam swap since you have generally got to remove the exhausts to get at it.jawrider said:How difficult is it to place Baisley spring? Is it something that an average guy could do and does it require any other modifications with it or can you just do it yourself?
ShakyJake said:The spring is not that hard to do even on the bike, you have to drop the pipes and take off the cam cover, just be sure you do not put the drift pin through the middle of the spring. I have heard of some folks doing that.
Why straight pipes? It has been documented that straight pipes hurt performance. I am not second-guessing your modification. :hmmm: I am only curious why straight pipes - not just you but in general? :thumbsup:heritage43 said:People have beat this horse to death. When I first got my Heritage the noise bothered me. I have talked to a lot of people and they say that is the nature of the beast. I have 10,000 plus on mine now with no problems. I just had it in for its 10k checkup. Ride it and enjoy it. Mine has the same noise, just got some straight pipes and the noise is not noticable now!
I ride an FLHRCI, what is a RKC? :265:Bluescb said:Mine makes all kinds of noise too...but we're sittin on top of a 95" aircooled OHV Twin. And us VTF riders hear everything! My buddy rode my RKC (gear drive and all) the other day and I asked him what he thought about all the valvetrain noise---He says "What noise -- the bikes sounds killer" We're listening for the noise--- so we hear it. He wasn't-- so he didn't. Its all good. -2$en#e-
