    Big bore?

    Is there any big bore or stroker kits available for a gen 1 and if so are they worth it and how much and where can I find parts... I would like some more juice under me its a fun bike but it's less than impressive, I don't feel like it lives up to the stigma

    I have my bike back up and running better than ever and couldn't have done it without these guys. Thank you thank you thank you ! Couldn't be happier my bike is kicking ass and taking names.

    Radiator Coolant / Antifreeze a crystalized big wad of goop!

    Trying to bring to life an 85. The gas tank is a little rusty so going to get that cleaned up using some of the suggestions on this forum. However, before I did that, I planned to fire her up by running fuel lines to an external tank. I decided to check the coolant and found this white/yellow...

    A big thank you to a good guy!

    This goes out to my friend Jon, AKA blaxmax. Over the last few months, he has become a friend. I've had a few problems with the Max, and he very kindly sent me parts to diagnose/fix the problem on more than one occasion. For free, because that's what friends do. I know there were personality...

    Recently acquired an 96 with almost 50,000 on the clock. Doesn't run, used a carb body for my 97. Was looking in to pcw 1570 big bore kit. Still in planning stages. Anybody done this? Anything I should look for or do while it's apart? Also looking into higher revving cam shafts. Longer duration...

    another BIG reason to hate

    Shithead truck drivers. Aside from the fact they ride my ass in traffic, will block the highway for miles while passing, pull out of the truck stop right in front of me (at 4 am with NO cars behind me) then not be able to find 2nd gear, use the size of their semi to intimidate cars, not move...

    BIG THANKS to Dragmaxster! Still need some help

    So this might be a long one........ I've been chasing down this issue since I bought the bike ( June of 2015 ). Thought it ran decent but anytime I tried to hold a consistent speed anywhere from 50MPH-75MPH it acts like its running out of fuel. So with the help of everyone on here I checked the...

    Hey guys, big shout out to marsmax85

    He happened to have a beutiful car that he was planning to donate for tax reasons, but instead sold it to me for less that what he would have gotten off his taxes. I'm going to be honest, I was expecting this thing to barely sputter into the driveway when he pulled up, but it's actually a...

    A big thank you to twistedmax

    Twistedmax answered my wanted ad for a stock airbox with a K&N filter. He was very helpful and even mailed the airbox to the other side of the world (Cyprus) paying a whopping $68 out of his own pocket in order for it to arrive as soon as possible. And he did all of this for someone who did not...
