I replaced the air filter the other day. It made a major difference in the way the bike ran.
I was "missing" at WOT...
That's better now and I had to reset the low idle settings... she ticks over at about 200 rpms....

So, I picked up a proper side stand.



The gentleman described it as a "Henry", not Flanders, not Brown...
It's very much appreciated, as I don't have to haul her big butt up onto the throne "every" time....

nice. how do you like it?

your centerstand tab looks tweaked and ground down at the tip as if machined to make it smaller in diameter.
What's the story there?

I like it, A LOT!
The OEM was so short the bike was leanin' 20 degrees to port. She fell over on me twice before I just took it off...
The Henry settles in about 7 degrees. A nice angle with attitude. I've noticed a bit more drippage from the left tickler at rest, but it ain't no thang...

I stuck a piece of black PVC tubing over the CStand tab as it was rubbing against the bottom of my repop silencers. They're missing the indent for that.
Maybe I should have mentioned that in, "the dark secrets revealed?" ...

i think 95% of the folks on this forum use the "dark secrets" thread for purposes other than what it was intended.

It's supposed to be a reference for non-oem and cheap replacement or mod parts.

no biggy.

I had probs with the repop silencers too. Very frustrating.

The Catskills are BMW magnets....

Native Americans were also attracted to the area...now known as Big Indian...



He was Winnisook....

Nice sidestand. Looks like a Flanders, but different and SHINY. I might have to replace my Flanders. Where did you get it and how much?

Today was "Driving the Dixie" which is a drive down part of the old Dixie Highway. I couldn't do the whole ride, but I did stop by to see all the old cars. I had the only bike there and wish I could have spent the whole day. It is kind of a rolling car show. Everyone stops at all the towns for 1/2 hour to an hour and then roll on to the next town.

Hey, I have a sidestand like that (but it's not shiny).
