    Tuesday Two Tuesday

    Howdy folks. Feel pretty good today. I think i recovered from the weekend.

    Wondering how much more suspension travel the new softail frame has over the prior version?

    Morning all

    Yeah that new frame is looking great for sure, love to know the travel. I really stripped down version lightweight would be great

    Good Tuesday afternoon everyone. I hear those 107 engines run pretty strong. Maybe someday I'll find out first hand.

    The Compensator Spring broke on my Ultra and it just seems like overkill to have to buy the whole Stator Cover just to get a spring.

    In a kind of “custom revolution” Harley-Davidson has reinvented a frame:

    – with a design reducing complexity with a 50 percent reduction in component parts and a 22 percent reduction in welds.

    – lighter than before, and it has a 34% stiffer chassis overall.

    – two unique swingarms, one for narrow and one for wide rear tires. The wide chassis is 15 percent lighter (13 pounds) and the narrow chassis is 20 percent (18 pounds) lighter than the 2017 Softail frame.

    – built to harness the massive power of the Milwaukee 107 and 114 engines.

    – featuring an all-new easily adjustable mono-shock rear suspension. The new mono-shock rear suspension preserves the classic hard tail look while revamped geometry improves ride quality, traction and control. This new easily mono-shock enables a 240 pound range of payload capacity for increased passenger comfort and enhanced dynamic handling compared to 2017 Softail models.

    – equipped with Showa® SDBV® suspension technology provides the performance of a racing-style cartridge fork with linear damping characteristics

    They musta moved the battery otherwise we'll have to remove the shock to change one out.


    If these fires keep up the insurance companies aren't going to want to insure for fire no more. They must be paying out a lot of claims.

    sounds like porn.

    I couldn't find it either. Maybe it didn't change so they don't want to draw attention to it.
