1. Bike : 2008 883 110,000 miles (aprox)
2. stock engine
3. stock compression
4. no conversion
5. stock gearing
6. premium octane. aprox 91-94 depending on state / station
7. no change to fueling / ecm
8. no temp gauge. good question.
9. Rode long haul a few times. 4000 miles making time on the super slab. 4 to 8 hrs per day at aproximately 80mph for a few weeks. A couple 2000 mile trips ridden as above. Usually shorter commuting and day tripping.
10. Normal oil usage.
11. No further info for this poll as of now. Am considering a large refresh on the bike, may not remain stock.
