FLHR Road King Test Ride
2 weeks with a new Roadie.
My cunning plan successfully convinced Harley-Davidson Australia to lend me
their Road King press bike - so I could put together an article for Kiwi
A 'where to ride guide for the motorcyclists among the 400 thousand New
Zealanders who visit the South-East Queensland region every year'.
So, for two weeks this beauty graced my garage while my KLR 650 was in
safely stowed in the shed at my local Harley shop -- Morgan and Wacker.
Over the course of my...errr...research I had great rides to the North of
our East Brisbane base. To the Sunshine Coast and the great riding in the
hinterland and South to the Gold Coast and its scenic hinterland.
As well as a ton of day rides around the city of Brisbane and the hills to
the west of the urban sprawl.
It was great to get re-acquainted with one of my favourite motorcycles.
A number of Road Kings have passed my way in the time I've been dribbling
on about bikes.
I've enjoyed riding them since my first encounter in 2002.
One consistent has been that every year the bikes have gotten just that
little bit better, more refined -- as you would expect over time.
And Harley have had quite a while to get it right.
The First Road Kings appeared in 1994 although Harley states the bike's
Heritage goes all the way back to the original 1965 Electra Glide.
At the heart of the vehicle is the now familiar 103 Cubic Inch Twin Cam
engine with integrated oil cooler, it runs push-rod operated valves and
self adjusting lifters. The engine is rubber mounted and the six speed
gearbox features Harley's Isolated Drive system for smooth power delivery.
Compared to how the engine behaves at idle, there is very little vibration
at operating speeds.
It has a bore and stroke of 98.4mm x 111.1mm and is fed by Sequential Port
fuel injection and the real please of the engine is it's maximum torque of
136nm at 3,5900 rpm. It makes for pretty relaxed touring, even with a load.
The standard touring inclusions include hard luggage with pretty good
carrying capacity, a saddle that is 'all day' good, a big screen, easily
removed or replaced depending on the ride, folding footboards for comfort
and easy to use electronic cruise control.
I really did fine it very east to spend all day in the saddle across all of
the types of riding I put the bike through.
Freeway cruising is a delight. Sit back in comfort and just roll away the
Back roads and twisties are just as pleasant. Cornering clearance is pretty
good for a unit with footboards. 76mm of travel is available from the air
adjustable rear suspension, so the ride is quite firm, particularly on
rough surfaces, but the bike tracks well and holds a line very nicely. The
way it torques out of the corners adds to the appeal.
One of the most significant improvements has been in the way the bikes
The Road King has been fitted with twin 4 pot Brembos up front and a single
at the rear. They are genuine 2-finger brakes now. Fitted with ABS in the
local market as standard. They pull up pretty well.
Pretty well. That's sums up how I went with the latest Road King.
Over time it has evolved into a compliant boulevard cruiser, an excellent
day rider and it's capable of handling a much longer adventure - If you
could do so -- it would happily chug along at 80mph all day.
It's great looking, beautifully finished and just made me feel good to be
I did over 1000km in the two weeks I had it and loved every minute of it.
On to my next cunning plan.
Stator Repair - 3b of 9 - Clutch Assembly Removal - Tool Listing
Demonstrates removal of Compensator and Clutch Assembly to access the Rotor
and Stator; lists tools required. This is one of several short videos
demonstrating removal and installation of a new stator our 1995 Harley
Davidson Heritage Softail Classic.
As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome.
Turbo Buell XB GoPro tank mount
For more information, check out my build website at
A short ride around the block with the GoPro mounted with their suction cup
mount. This mount does a much better job than the handlebar mount but the
camera still vibrates a good bit.
The Boost controller is set to
~15psi in every gear.
The bike is running a bit rich at that Boost level which causes the couple of
stutters during hard acceleration at 2:35 and 6:10.
The slipping clutch is evident in the 4th and 5th gear pull at 6:12.
The GoPro picks up an occasional rattle noise when the intake plumbing
slightly vibrates against the tank cover (what the GoPro suction cup is
At 8:58 a guy in a white SUV asks what kind of bike it is and at 10:08 and
12:48 I talk to a guy riding a Triumph. He asks if it's a 500, haha!
At 10:40 a woman tries to cut me off.....Grrr!
2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special vs. Indian Chieftain
In the early days of motorcycling, Indian and Harley-Davidson began a
decades-long battle. However, rivalries can be a force for good, a creator
of tradition and ritual, a motivating force. Manufacturers embroiled in a
heated competition regard each other as an opportunity to hone their
industrial might. They use their enemy to push themselves to innovate and
improve. The benefactor is ultimately you, the consumer.

How To Adjust An Evolution Harley Davidson Sportster or Buell Motorcycle Primary Chain & Change Oil
Here's how to adjust an Evolution Harley Davidson Sportster motorcycle
primary chain. http://www.hoohoohoblin.com is where you can see more about
my Sportster-Engine bikes. Adjusting the primary chain tension and
changing the fluid is really easy to do, and you can see everything
involved in this video. If you have a 2002 or older tube-framed Buell
motorcycle with the Harley Davidson Evolution Sportster Engine, this will
work for you as well. Just open the inspection hole, measure the gap,
crank the engine over 5 or 10 times and measure to see if there is less
than 1/2 inch of play at the tightest point with the engine cold. It's
really easy to do, and these chains don't stretch much, so most of the time
you won't need to adjust it. To change the oil, drain it, and then dump in
a quart. I show you how to check the Evolution Sportster primary fluid in
this video, but if you're changing the oil you don't need to check it.
Just put in a fresh quart of Harley-Davidson Sportster primary oil after
you drain it. I hope this helps you learn to do this yourself. It's
simple, and you'll save a lot of money on service.
Bagger Harley Drag Racing
this was the 3rd and final run, had baffles put back in running higher 13's
at 92 mph the run before this was lower 13's at 94 mph in the 1/4 without
the baffles. This is not me in this video just a friend. Engine has high
compression pistons 10.5:1 and bored to 95" from the stock 88, I think its
cammed and was running on pump gas.

2013 Harley Iron 883 Test Ride! | TestRides
I've been looking at, and thinking about, the Harley Iron 883 for some time
now. I've thought they were cool since they came out in 2009. After buying
a used XL1200L Sportster last year, it's really got me thinking about the
Iron again. Went up to Northwest Harley-Davidson in Lacy, Wa. yesterday
just to look, and was talked into taking one for a test ride. Well I almost
rode her home, but couldn't quite get to terms with the price. So I came
home to think this over before jumping right in and taking it...
I love the idea of this small, simple, rough & tough little bike. Very drab
looking, so it doesn't scream "Look at me!" or "Watch how fast I can go!"
It reminds me of the UJM's of the '70's & '80's. Love this bike... I will
absolutely get one of these Iron 883's!
As for the test ride, it was awesome! I really thought it was going to feel
under powered, but that was not the case at all. Even though I was given
very strict restrictions on how to treat the new motor, she performed very
well within those parameters. I still can't believe they have test rides
like this for customers - how cool!
