A warm welcome to the forum family from a swamp in Michigan. Tried to check out your pictures but a message said they were private?

This is critical it is not just spending hours in line to be able to put fuel, but the low quality that is right now. It is dirty, unreliable and to top it off the octane level is totally uncertain (some estimate 85 ROM at most).
Just sit near a small uphill and every time a car or motorcycle passes you only hear the knocking or pinging. With those levels, even with Octane Boosters it is not reached an acceptable level for vehicles (like my case) with levels higher than 10: 1.
Imagine the damage that is occurring to all vehicles

This is THE BEST Sportster Resource!

Take a minute and please put at least your state/country in the LOCATION FIELD of your profile so we can better help you when you need it - Your climate, temps & altitude can make a difference to suggested fixes... (the STATE FIELD does not show on posts so you need to use the LOCATION FIELD)...

CLICK HERE - then scroll down to 'Additional Information' and look for the field labeled 'LOCATION' - put your information in there - It will then show on each post you make... Look for this:


Post a PICTURE of your ride... Host the image on a photo website (but not photobucket.com), get the link with the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included & paste that directly into your posting (If you don't have the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included, then use the Image Insert icon along with the web address of the image)...

(I saw your pics link, but I don't do any of that UnSocialMedia stuff.)

There are various sections to the XLForum - You can pick a section that is related to your problem/info, open that section and read the sticky threads on the first page - Then post your comment in an existing thread or create a new one to get information for your specific question... For new threads, make the title specific to your problem or info...

This is the index of sections: http://xlforum.net/forums/index.php
Be sure to read some/many of the FAQ/HowTo threads (including how-to post pictures) here:
http://xlforum.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=16

The Sportsterpedia has a lot of technical info to review:
http://sportsterpedia.com
