Super information. Thanks, guys.

I got the bike in March 2019 with 275 miles on it. It was won in a contest long times past and traded in on a truck. Thatís where we saw it while buying a new truck for the Missus. It has Rineharts on it, and possibly other tweaks, I donít know, so I need to check for proper mixtures. Iíve heard the FP3 was good. If Powervision is better, and not too awfully much more rubles, Iíll take a look at it instead.

I can handle the gas thieves with the alarms and rock salt. Erratic mileage is no biggie, other than making me worry about what my silver bullet endured while mostly sitting, alone, with no friends, abandoned and forlorn, for ten freaking years. It was immaculate when we found it. I changed the springer seat, but it will go back on with the new shocks. My @$$ just canít handle it with the stock ones. If I hit a pebble, it feels like Iím on solid struts. Nope, Iím just too old for that.

In any case, after the tuner, since Iíll need it for the next thing, is a decent breathing system, and as I may have mentioned Iím leaning toward the DK 828 and my own 833 cover. I want one of those external breathers, too, so I can ride to see my family in CA, just knowing how badly Iím polluting the place and how many of their laws Iíll be breaking. Iím a rebel.

Tire pressure?? 29 front and 35 rear, just because I can. Pure rebel.

Yíall have a good Sunday evening.
