    If you have the jiffy stand bracket that bolts to the frame, like a pan, shovel, or Softail, the FXWG bracket holds the leg in a more vertical position. It has a -85 part # if I remember correctly. ...

    Those Cal Products cases with the ribs look good in a rigid frame where you can really see them.

    Tried the same thing on a race bike 20 years ago (way before that kit came out). Looks good, did not work. The hose is too soft and distorts and tears in use. If you are going to use a band, it's...

    The earlier o-ring heads and manifolds are foolproof, seal perfectly with good clamps, and are very durable. They are a little difficult to install, but the effort is worth it. If I have a choice...

    Close, but no cigar indeed.

    At high manifold vacuum (idle and cruise) the VOES is grounded. At low vacuum (usually between 3.0 and 6.5 inHg) the switch goes open circuit, and that triggers the...

    If you will look at 69Glide's second picture, above, you will see the piston broken above the top ring land. That is a SURE SIGN of detonation. When the heat builds, the top ring will end butt and...

    For my FLH, I made a battery tray to hold an FXE battery at the outside rear corner of the stock battery box. A little padding on top, and the original battery covers fit right on it. The only visual...

    I think you have misunderstood my point, which was as I concluded, shovels have been built and run hard for years before the VOES came out. I did not mean to imply that you, yourself, did anything...

    I'm assuming from the shape of the pistons that this was a shovelhead. But, no matter. As you raise the compression, the tuning becomes more difficult, or should I say, demanding, and the motor does...
