    Also note the grill I made to protect the oil cooler. Got that idea from the HD forum. It's gutter material that keeps leaves out, from Home Depot. Less than 5 bucks.

    i've found the glovebox with the door to be a very useful thing. I see yours got finger smudges on it too. I use window cleaner to clean mine. Sunscreen on the fingers is the biggest culprit in my case.

    I read that HD made several versions of the B engine and were able to totally eliminate vibes on one version. The test riders hated that version. That’s how a B engine in a touring frame would be received.

    I love the vague distant thumping my M8 Road King delivers at highway speeds.

    So, I've been giving this a lot of thought (for the past about 20 years or so). I've been tempted now and again to give one giant middle finger to all the adult children playing badazz with the skulls on their bikes. One of these days I'm gonna get a bunch of these made up as stickers or better yet magnets so you can put them on whatever bike you want.

    BEHOLD - PINK BUNNY SKULLS!

    The skulls can sure be overdone!! I have a friend who is a real rider, but insists on the in style stuff. He has levers that come to a point. I helped him work on the bike and two separate occasions he poked himself in the head enough to bleed. I couldn't believe it, he kept the levers

    Worst chopper I ever saw was covered stem to stern with sharpened bladed weapons (mostly knives and a full on sword incorporated into the sissy bar). But spikes and blades coming off most of the chassis fasteners like axles, pegs, handlebar clamps, etc. Brass knuckles for levers etc etc etc. It was like an violent 9 year old's dream.

    How do you go about setting the preload on the seat shock? Is it a weight to thread or a loaded vs unloaded measurement?

    I should check my OM because I feel like the initial setup was a weight to thread thing. But I never took any measurements. It was setup close to perfect when I bought it and I left it there for the past few years. Ironically I DID just tighten it up a few turns and have to try it out. I suspect it will be fine or I'll have to back it outa tiny bit.

    So for me, mostly trial and error.

    Well, it looks like I have time to figure it out waiting on the rest of the parts. LOL.
