    H-D style external cable throttle controls include a friction spring and screw that can be used to set a fast idle when the motor is cold. I also like that feature for hiway running as it allows me...

    Definitely on point.

    I would exhaust (no pun intended) the possibilities that do not require motor disassembly first, really a no-brainer. I think the ignition module is by far the odds-on choice...

    An intake leak will lean out your jetting. That is what makes them so dangerous. If not corrected, a stuck exhaust valve is the eventual result (or sometimes something worse). It's good that you...

    Don't pay him any mind, he's just having a fit of pique. It has nothing to do with you or your motorcycle.

    Not unusual to have rather low compression numbers when kicking as compared to turning the motor with the electric starter. But under 100psi is kinda lame.

    If it's the correct front end, no brackets are necessary. The shoulder bolts pass through the lugs on the lowers to mount the calipers.

    Softail oil tank is 3 qt. and the old square tank on the four speeds is 4 qt. Either size will do.

    L,

    Since you feature one bob with rear shocks in your introduction to this thread, I guess you are open to rear suspension. As a 67 year old (who identifies as a 47 year old), I can tell you that...

    If you feel the need to do so, that would be fine with me. But I am very much an advocate of learning by doing, hands on.

    If the 39mm front end has a 3/4 axle, and most do, a Timken bearing wheel can be fitted (just like the mid - 90s front ends had stock). A speedo drive to a ball bearing wheel is not impossible, but...
