    You can have your local dealer reflash the ECM back to stock. Maybe half an hour labor. They can also tell if it's tuned with the Digital Technician. But have it reflashed there's often an updated version of the map available for older bikes that runs better.

    Sniff the exhaust? Yeah that'll work. I've had so many guys come in and tell me the bike is rich 'cause they can smell it. Well they're typically very lean. A lean mixture is hard to light and what they're smelling is unburnt fuel. It will fool an O2 sensor too by the unburnt fuel cooling the sensor compound the lean issue..

    As far as I know there is no O2 sensor on this bike. I will see what the dealer says. An hour of labor sounds fair to me.

    Nah the '06 Softies were still open loop. No O2 sensors 'til '07 and the 96 C.I. engine.

    Was out playing in the Rockies on the s10 when the water pump let go. So played a few days on a friends bike

    Then mom gave me her bike to finish the trip out since her and dad trailered out. They hauled my bike back.

    We've been on the road for a few days. Haven't really taken any decent photos of the bikes but the subject matter is what counts here PXL_20210728_154457173.jpg PXL_20210728_154909856.jpg PXL_20210728_154721229.jpg

    I had a LRS for a day, and it was a blessed relief to get back on my Road King. The ergonomics of that softail were dire.

    What didn't you like?
    I ride a street bob and sometimes wish I went lrs or sport glide for larger tank and different ergos.
    Or the ultra classic for more cush.
    Im fairly comfortable and done a few 500 mile trips on the bob, but the seat/bar position is uncomfortable after a bit.

    Even with the "mini apes" my arms are almost fully extended, in hard cornering I have to bring my self closer to the tank and really point my elbows up to feel like Im in control.
    Going to go with 6-10" risers and some moto bars to remedy that.
    The foot controls are supposed to be mids, but feel more like "forward suggested" and sometimes I feel myself scooting around on the seat to get into a comfortable position.
