Y dun u guys just try jump start from a car...... :) save the trouble of pushing start the bike

 

Most people wouldnt know how to open the bonnet of their car, much less stop to assist a biker.

 

That being said, can you jump start a bike from another bike? I was thinking of carrying cables if we can.

Tried twice on a 02 EFI RK, :(

Able to push start, once flat ground with 1 helper, another down MSCP ramp.

Trust me, no 1 will want to try that.

Yup understood the "pain" & agnoy in that...

VERY TIRESOME process...lol

you can jump start from bike to bike, hunt around sim lim tower for a compact jumper kit, else you can build one yourself but you need thick enough cable or the power during transfer can melt your cable

cant really compare push starting a RK and a Sportster...

 

Theres nothing to enlighten. If you say you can push start a FI Harley where battery is flat, u arrange a day and time, i will come and see it. i use to have a 97 FI model Road king for 5 years and it doesnt work at all, and am now riding Harleys for 12 years. Will be really interested if you can do so.

hi,i've a street glide Tri-Bar Light Upgrade that fits 2010 and later model that i've bought wrongly brand new in the box. i understand from the HD service side that's a brother out there that is riding the 2010 model street glide that bought the Tri-Bar Light that fits the 2009 model. I'm in for a change or just sell the item away. Please contact me at 96654459 if any brothers out there knows who i'm refering to. Thanks in advance.

A lot of guys in the US run Amsoil. Not sure if we can find it here. I ride a Fi 96 ci, which runds hot so I use synthetic oil - the heat in Singapore will break down the mineral oil. But if you change it regularly, it should not matter.

 

 

Whats wrong with SE synthetic, other than the price? I dont mind the price as my scheduled changes are at 6km or 6 months

sweet ride, love the huge tyres in front.

Always ride safely and defensively.

Repair bike cheap and fast,

Repair body expensive and slow.

 

There is only one best mechanic for your bike...YOU

xlforum.net

 

it is a US based forum on sportster, these guys know their stuff and able to tear down their bikes to the last screw and rebuilt it to bobber,hard-tail, brag-style, old school, cafe racer etc etc.

Just went to the new Harley Shop is at Enterprise Hub #04-108. Orange colour shop, cannot be missed. Quite a few Harleys in the shop for repair and customising. Get to talk to the owner name Eric, and the mechanic Derek, both of them used to be ex mechanics from the dealership for many years. Now came out to open their own.....

Ha! I picked up my XR1200X last week and already blew 6k on parts already. Now I am waiting for the stuff to arrive. Guess, we are all being "poisoned".

It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.

The Xr1200X model comes in black and white, only the previous model Xr1200 is available in orange. I think they only bring in black color one as told by the sales person. Mine is needless to say ... in black.
