I used the BelRay products in both the Pri and the oil tank.
My buddy noticed it was quieter immediately. Could be subjective, could be adjustment of the chain, but I'll take it.

Now it's just a matter of waiting for the seat to be covered. I had a local shop add some rear bolster in behind my keister so I wouldn't slip off the seat and they used a grippier fabric for the tuck and roll center section.

I'll post a couple of pics to do with that later.

Just wanted to chime in with the realization that Sportsters are decently tough bikes and they make noise. Looking forward to the wind reduction that the new fairing provides based on a quick jaunt out with the bike.


don't stop til she's chopped
Great news! Have you installed the upgraded HD oil pump? My bike is an 04 and I just did it last weekend.

Sure did! Video install was a breeze. It’s back there in the archives of the thread.

Decided to share a few pics and bring it up to speed. Since the bike was done and I’m hunting for a new lid, I thought I’d decorate these ones.

Also in there is a rough iPhone sketch of the seat and what it’ll look like stitched up (very rough like MS Paint rough)






















Also cleaned up the wiring even more in the m unit.

Just need the seat and they’ll be sayin “there goes the neighbourhood”
