Well its been 2 weeks I've been without my bike because of this starter issue. I bought an aftermarket starter last week ($110 w/shipping as opposed to the $400 harley starter ... $500 from the dealership! ) and it came in Saturday. To get the starter out I had to remove the exhaust and the primary cover which means my mid controls and shifter had to come off as well. Put the new starter in and start putting everything back together and realize pretty fast that the threading in the jackshaft of the starter is wider then the harley starter although the desciption said it would work on my bike. I'll post some pics tonight of my baby all torn down.

After a few hours of removing all the parts and putting everything back together i figured out the threading problem. So now I am either going to pay this place $90 to fix my old starter (should have done in the first place) or try and mix match parts between the starters. I like the new starter because it is all chrome plated and my old 1 is black. The clutch gear in the silenoid /sp? is what went out in the old starter. So now i need to decide what i'm going to do.

Good news: Well now the the bike is broken down I went ahead and ordered my new Vance and Hines Shortshots and Kuryakyn forward controls which should be here this week. I plan on getting the starter fixed this week as well so by saturday I should be in good shape to put everything back together. It's a lot of work but very satisfying doing it myself.

I recently had the stage 2 carb kit put on the bike so hopefully I dont have to rejet the carb or anything for new pipes.

I want to ride so frakin bad!

Well, I'm back on 2 wheels! Ran into a few snags. Had my brother in law help me put her back together and once we got going it took about 8 hours to replace passenger pegs, add forward controls, change driver pegs, replace starter, replace oil filler cap, and replace exhaust. The snag that added the most time was due to bad assembly. I was having a tough time removing the brake linkage from the rear master cylinder. That pushrod has a lock nut but I guess they also used lock tight for whatever reason. Should have been as easy as unscrewing the linkage but that thing wasn't budging. A buddy of mine stopped by the house Friday night after leaving the bar and wanted to take a go at it. My mistake was letting his drunk touch my bike. His mistake was breaking off the end of the linkage into the master cylinder. Well, with everything being closed for the holiday my broinlaw and i took apart the master cylinder and took the part to his shop in Humble and he drilled out the broken bolt and rethreaded the pushrod. That took about 2 hours. After that we put the master cylinder back together and hooked up the new linkage no problem.

Anyways .. here are the finished pics. She isnt washed because I havent let her cool down long enough since I finshed :eh:

Sticking with the skull theme I added these driver pegs to the forward controls and a new oil cap.

and last but not lease .. the youtube video of the pipes. My wife shot the video and it really doesnt do the pipes justice. I'll take another video after i figure out a good way to strap the camera to the bike.

No and more than likely wont run the 280 that Dan had on his 9. After a little research I found that the 280 runs on a much smaller footprint over the 260. I think I am going to hit Patrick up for a Metz 260 when it's time.


Let me know when you guys are ready for another ride!!

Anyone doing a cruiser meet anytime soon? From the looks of the pics it looks like mainly Harleys so hopefully I won't be too much of an outcast on my Honda :eh: .Tango did you mean the Suzuki dealership on 2920 in Tomball? If so I'll try to make it out there this Sunday to do a ride with ya'll.
