  1. You might find you are greatly limiting your options if you insist on a black exhaust. The draggie ceased being manufactured quite a while ago, so aftermarket exhausts are beginning to dry up. I've got the v&h cruzers on mine (chrome) and been very happy with them. They are a bit shorter than stock. Or you could go for the v&h shortshots, which are, well, short. Still chrome though. Or you might want to give the Delkevic exhaust a look. Sounds great, would suit the bobber look and has a brushed stainless finish.
  2. Smartpartz: yes, very good, recommend them. Although: try the tuner first, if you eliminate almost all the popping you might not mind the exhaust being as loud as it is.
  3. Hi, has the rear monoshock on the bike been removed?
  4. Pretty sure it's a straight swap. Have a look on Fowlers at the diagrams for the classic and the custom, mounts should be the same.
  5. This is just great dude, I'm lovin' this!
  6. ... involving a hit-and-run, and a largish insurance payout to me, some of which went on, well, you can see for yourselves.
  7. many thanks Jimmy! It's been a while (4 years!) since I posted those last pics. A lot has happened since then:
  8. Still can't figure out how to upload photos since p/bucket has gone $$$. Any admins figure it out yet?
  9. Hi Im new to this forum but have the same problem do you still have the special tools?

  11. I've gone from 60+mpg to 51-54mpg. I can feel the increase in power, but will have to dyno the bike to know the exact figures. Remember she's a V-twin, not a 4-in-line high revver, so um, mileage may vary? (I'll get me coat...) Edit: mpg went back up to 60+mpg after a couple of fillups and has stayed there ever since. Don't ask me how, I've no idea!
  12. Hi Cynic, fixing the carb rubbers was a preventative measure; the old cracked ones were only cracked on the outside, but were still holding a seal, though for how much longer who knows, hence their replacement. So no perf increase from renewing those (and none expected). The jet size increase from 92.2 to 120 is a measure of how much more air the hypercharger lets into the engine. Or how very restrictive the stock airbox is, even with a k&n filter. Bear in mind, the previous jetting was done with the aid of a dyno, but I also had the stock filter on (more restrictive than
  13. Hard to tell, but he may have been going too fast for the conditions anyway.
  14. Ok, so update no2: rather than buy the OEM rubbers, at £75+vat a pop, I found a pair of new ones on ebay for £40 ish from M&P motorcycles. Got the mechanic to fit these and swap all the carb screws out. On the vacuum membrane side (the brass covers) the new screws were too long (at 12mm) and were snagging the choke cable. Thankfully the mechanic had the right size screws (10mm and under). Further problems ensued when I discovered I had a vacuum leak from one of the new rubbers. Back to the mechanic it went, where is was discovered the O ring had snapped. Probably from carelessness on his p
