    Seen a guy in Reno at Street Vibs one time in a burn out contest. He burned his rear tire out completely through. First place was a new tire.:rolleyes:

    My post never suggested a burn out!!!! And its no different than telling a newb to hold in on the front brake while giving its some throttle except the wall is much easier and less steps...cant say I have done it for 45 years but its worked for a good 30 years or a little more....the second post was a joke!!!

    Very simple ,very effective unless on sealed concrete or gravel which would produce the same effect with holding the front brake.

    Do not test clutch out on sealed concrete or gravel....chill
    Enough said!!

    I'm up, but it's been too cold to ride and i"m gettin'' buggy. There's patches of ice around and my buddy just went down last week from a black ice patch, so I guess I'll just have to be patient, uggh..

    I'll let everyone know what I find when I do figure this all out, thanks for all the cool suggestions guys.

    Got a real good buddy that came over yesterday.
    I keep askin him to ride to like Galveston which is 125 miles south.
    he will not ride that far.

    He wanted to see my wifes nightster.
    He rode it down the road and back.

    Froz any his butt off too.

    He ridea a 07 Deuce. I put a Thundermax on it, he really was tripped out at how much difference the Thundermax with Auto Tune made on his stock bike.

    Let his ride my Electra Glide yesterday, put my helmet and a
    Carhart jacket and gloves on him.

    He took my electraglide down the street. I got hard lowers on it.
    He's never riddin a Geezer glide before.

    He came back with a smile from Ear to Ear.

    He was saying man no wonder you guys take off and ride anywhere on these bikes anywhere.
    He said I was going 60 and it was like I wasn't even moving.
    I had very little wind on my legs and I wasn't cold.
    When I went into a curve the bike turned so easy. those fat tires are really great.
    He left talkin to his girlfriend about it.

    She said I'd love to ride on back of one of those bikes.

    I said Robert, you know I've been talkin to you about one of these bikes for over 2 yrs man.

    Just had the clutch adjusted and the primary belt tightened. The slight slipping feeling that I thought was the clutch seems to be gone. I'll know more when I get a chance to ride a bit more. The Harley dealership did the clutch test with the hand on the break and throttled it, no slippage. Will let everyone know more when I do. Rain tomorrow, so I gotta wait until Monday.

    Amsoil 20W-50 in engine and primary - 9.95 at the indy shop but the 75W-140 was a bit more expensive - 14.95. Since then a close friend stopped by and told me that since I use Amsoil, he has a distributorship and can get it cheaper than that.

    Man that's cheaper than our Indy shop sell's it.

    I got a dealership with Amsoil. And would be glad to give anybody my number to join for 25.00 a year and you can buy it at dealer cost.
