8 | WheelsOfGrace.com | #55 I am doing a bobber project on my 2005 883L. I am bobbing the fender and will no longer have the stock tail light assembly. What I want to do is use the rear turn signals for my RUN/STOP/TURN. I have watched the video on the Turn Module Kit and I see how it works. What can I do in my application? The signals only have 2-wires. I have electrical experience if you can provide a diagram of how to wire the RUN (BLUE) PURPLE/BROWN = LEFT AND RIGHT AND BLACK= GROUND. I do not see needing the 12vdc RED/ORG OR THE RED/ YEL WIRES. NEXT- What dual filament bulb do I use? Do I need a different size fuse? Will the turn signals support what I want to do? If the signal housings you are trying to use only have 2 wires, there is a good chance that they will not support all 3 functions. Sounds like you have single filament signal housings. You should be using dual filament signal housings {and bulbs} with a Bad Lands module; specific for supporting all 3 functions: Running lights, Brake light, Signals. Since the weather is getting to be nicer how do I handle a first start for the season? If you live in a part of the country where you actually need to store your m/c for the winter, there are some things that should have already been taken care of to maintain and assure a smooth start to your riding season. It is important to start with a fully charged, good battery and fresh premium fuel. With Spring motorcycle riding comes extra obstacles: watch for potholes, sand and drivers that are not expecting to see you on the road. I've got a 2011 H-D Fat Boy Lo with stock tires. Jerry "Motorman" Palladino in his "Ride Like a Pro" DVD recommends running 40 psi tire pressure in the front Harley tire to lighten steering loads and ease low speed maneuvering. The H-D owner's manual calls for 36 psi in the front tire. Will going to 40 psi cause any problems with the front end, i.e. excess wear or speed wobble and will there be any problem with wear or damage to the front tire? Thanks in advance, Tom Tom, Over inflating a tire may cause it to wear quicker and you will typically feel more of the road because of the tire being harder. Keep in mind; engineers spend many hours studying & testing these tires and motorcycles before they resolve to a number (36 lbs). This tire pressure amount is what has been determined, to be best, for longevity of the tires, quality of the ride, and rider safety. I have a 1999, 1200 Sportster and installed a carb kit but still can't start bike after it warms up. Tried adjusting mixing valve but not having any success. Can you give me any tips what to do ? Thanks Dean Did this problem previously exist? What did the Harley carburetor kit consist of and what did you address? What happens when you use the enrichener? Will the bike run without the enrichener? Start it cold and check for an intake leak. Make sure you have no trouble codes in your speedo head. It may not be a fuel issue. It can be a bad sensor. Hey I have a question, I have a stock 2003 HD Road King Classic 100th Anny. I would like to put a cam in it to get a little more power on top end. I do most of my riding out on the interstate. Do u have any ideas? Check out exhausts, air intakes, EFI tuners that fit your motorcycle. See if a Stage 1 upgrade gives you the boost you need. If you want to invest more, look at big bore kits from S&S and or a drop in cam. Read the overviews and see what looks best for your style of riding and budget.
