Red, I know this is a long shot but by chance, do you remember the name of the chief mechanic at Hals Harley Davidson when Red blew a crank bearing? I remember that the Service manager that was there when we got there wasn't the one you spoke to because the guy that was there when we rolled up was like 2 days new.
I have a 2003 flhtc carbrurated. I relocated from Fairbanks Ak elevation 600’ above sea level to Albuquerque NM alt. 5000’ above sea level. Shipped it here and when it got hear i ask the local Harley shop to rejet the carb for the altitude change and was told that because it had a CV carb on it that no jet changes were nessacary because the CV carb adjusted to the altitude automatically ? That sound right to you? I have since installed CVPreformance kits and rejetted it and am very happy with how it runs but I’ve always been curious about the altitude compensating cv carb and if that information is correct?
I recently purchased this bike it is an 84 LTD shaft and am wanting to do a few modifications. A few things I have already done my self but am wanting to put a new exhaust on it which I will probably straight pipe but dont know the size. The other thing I wanted to do was lower it, I have already modified the bike to accept standard screws and harley pegs but could I still use hardtail struts for a harley and make them work??
Had a killer burn pit. Many a blown tirecand one blown BWM car motor. I worked the nite before a did the day on 3 hours of sleep. Once we got to the show and in the sun i was screwed. Felt okay up to that point.. 3 hour ride there. 3 hour ride back. 1 1/2 hour at the he bike/car show, 1 1/2 hour at moms. Long day on minimum sleep. I hate that BUT i got to go, get on the bike and spend a good day with the missus and brought my friends to visit my mother. She enjoys that. And my friends like her and visiting with her. We get fed well.
