Time for a few upgrades on the 2010 Road King. How I wish I still had a garage or a shed and all my tools in one place 🙂
Most everything on the bike is stock with the exception of the exhaust which has a nice set of Vance & Hines twin slash ovals for a better “musical note”. The bike is getting on for 6 years old now so it’s also time to pay a little attention to her and put some maintenance and upgrade work in. So the list of items going on the old girl over the next week are:
– 1 x Kuryakin Mach 2 Hi-Flow air filter (sucks more air)- 1 x V&H FuelPack FP3 fuel control system – works on blue tooth with an iPhone – pretty cool
– 1x Ohlins HD159 rear shocks – the flying sofa becomes a plush flying “Throne”
– 1 x pair of progressive springs for front forks – upgrade the back, you need to upgrade the front
Just before ordering all this stuff, I checked the bike. With a non standard exhaust and a stock air filter, I reckoned there must have been some kind of added fuel controller – sure enough there was an odd looking black box under the seat made by some welsh company that went out of business back in 2012 and no instructions anywhere to figure out how to operate it.
Pulled that “alien” out of there yesterday and replaced it with the FP3.
Will have the HD dealer here in Istanbul (about 500m away) do the front forks next week. I would normally do the back shocks myself, but the heavy duty bike jack is in Izmir 🙁Share
