Let us not forget the 'original' use for corncobs...

To keep corn kernels in neat little rows???

Is the lever at the proper angle? Try loosening the bar clamp and rotate a bit to change the lever position.

Tires/Suspension C14 / 180/55 rear experiences anyone?
« Last post by JaL3 on Today at 10:37:58 pm »
Got a set of Angel A-specs super cheap, the catch being that the rear is 180/55. Has anyone tried that size on their C-14?  I still have the stock Brickstone, can't imagine it could be any worse at least ..

While I do have one C-10 that has COP coils, its not fair to compare it to the COP coil setup on vehicles designed with COP coils in mind.  Yes, the COPs are generally hotter than stink in most applications, but on the C-10 they are wired for half voltage (series instead of parallel) so I'm curious as to exactly what the true spark intensity/duration is for them in our C-10 application.  And can they force a spark across as wide a gap as those actually running on 12v?  I would think not, but they do seem to run well enough and they REALLY clean things up under the tank.  Someone needs to do some real world (laboratory) testing to measure them.  Maybe someday. LOL


Maybe not.

Awesome. Y'all have fun. Marty, I received your pay this month. I'll hook up with you when I get back from my Trek/ride about.

Thanks Steve!  Looking forward to a nice ride, and some good food!  Buy some decent beer with that pay!

I hate to rain on the parade here, but I'm only getting 35mph on the mountain flash.  Performance is good.  70 degrees today in Ohio on 93octane.  In November when I first got it I was getting 35mph then. I gave it the benefit of the doubt because of the coolness in the air. Put 200+ miles on it.  I put the bike away for the winter, then rode it twice this month and both times 35mph.  I thought people were getting 45mph or there about.

Bummer dude, my '08 could easily do 158 mph... ever since I bought it...
Sell the bike.. something is wrong...
 :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Just kidding, clear the cashed MPG memory in the computer, by pushing and holding the buttons as explained inyour owner handbook..
Then come back and tell us what the MPG actually is.. :motonoises:

From a fellow Ohio owner by the way... :beerchug: :great:

I have a 2016 with 3700 miles on it.  It's fine. My last one was an '08.  How are you liking that heat blasting on your legs LMFAO!

I wear high topped riding boots, and an Aerostich, never had an issue of complaint with heat...on my legs.

Iirc, Steve introduced the M/R flash in December... and didn't really send any out before mid month... so I'm confused about you saying you had it in November and only got 35mpg....hmmm by the time those flashes were sent out, It was a foot deep in snow here, in OHIO, and my bike was deep in the garage.
As for your poor mileage figures, you are the first person here I've seen that has reported this issue, so I hope you get it straightened out, as it is not something "common". With well over 500 happy customers, so far, there has to be some issue left as a mystery.
Ride safe.

That is what I will do if they deny the warranty claim, probably put a patch on the inside of the tire.

The stick coil and irridum plug combo is very impressive to us "old farts" that swapped and cleaned, and regapped plugs all our life...

It just works so well now it takes plugs out of the equation almost, as something to mess with... but, at $12 a pop, those plugs ought to last.... :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
All.kidding aside, the C14 FSM does call for inspection and replacement at a rediculously low 7500 mi interval...
When I first decided to check valve clearance, I bought a set.. and as I didn't adjust the valves, just checked clearances, I didn't use the new plugs... because they were perfect... 8-10k later, when I did adjust all my clearances, the plugs still looked prisitne, but I replaced them with the new ones, and stored the OEM ones for future use...

They do last a longggg time.

Over Flow Tubes- You need these ASAP. Maybe you have them- most likely you dont.
 If you dont you better get them installed. Please  There are videos you can watch or get help to remove the carbs and send them to Sunny Steve to have them installed, better yet get them serviced while they are off. Dont out this off please. It is very very important.

There is a little nipple on the bottom of each carb. put a small tygone tubing/ hose on that nipple and blow- if it is blocked then you dont have over flow tubes installed

Tires/Suspension C14 / Re: Uneven Tire Wear: Need Help
« Last post by MAN OF BLUES on Today at 07:48:07 pm »
Now I'm really depressed.... :'(
I'm depressed because I paid $14k for a bike that came with such a horrible suspension, that if I want to get 6k miles out of a $200 tire, I have to spend $2000 for an aftermarket suspension... as that is the reason my tires wear out..
 >:( >:(

I can't afford that... :rotflmao:
