  1. Well yesterday i took Tinker out for a Test run, I sold her a while back and the guy was saying the clutch was slipping, the dash and false tank cover flew off on him. So last week I replaced all the plastics that was on her and switched out the saddle bags also. Still love the smoothness of my recliner with 2 wheels is. I had also bought a 2019 Harley Heritage on March 5th, I was really looking for an Eluder but was told they weren't getting those in and IF I wanted the Venture I had to order it without ever getting to try it out first. They had another bike I liked to but they don't allow test rides period. Not sure what kind of dealer that don't allow a person to go on a test ride but this one sure don't. So I did try to get financed they turned me down with no explanation. But was approved for there 2019 Chevy diesel truck for 3 times as much almost. So I went to get a piece to my ram mount for the venture out at harley and was Eye Balling a Fat Boy. So guy goes well lets see where your at. He comes out while I was looking at another bike and told me I was approved! I tripped over Ruby's front tire because I was literally in shock. I ended up going with the Heritage. I had been working alot at Sonic and didn't feel like being an essential worker on minimum wage during this Pandemic. We had more business after the lock down was announced, not to mention they started a special on kids meals to bring in more customers! We had 24 stalls and drive thru plus a patio... I just didn't feel it was worth the risk they weren't taken any precautions at all. I didn't quit but just had my hours reduced to try and get on some where else. I started working nights for a company that bottles the Almond Milk, Protein shakes, Starbucks coffee and a few other things. So really haven't had much time to get on here. Anyways Tinker is one happy camper right now. I still have the other 83 that I bought with me deductible check I got back. But If you all remember I bought a TCI box different from the ones you all got. Needless to say I can definately tell between the 2 bikes, so can the guy that has Riva at the moment while I was working on Tinker. Will say the seat and rider position is very comfy on these bikes, I have people wanting to by Riva but honestly I really like the MK1's. I had an 87 for a short time I sold it to a guy who has another bike with a trike kit on it. But I could tell the difference between the 83 and the 87, I did like all the creature comforts of the 87 but I would rather ride my 83. So hope you all out there are staying well during this Covid 19 stuff is going around, I honestly think I already had it back in February. I could not get motivated for nothing sicker then a dog and felt like I got my butt beat by Bruce Lee! But if it wasn't the Covid I don't want to know it could do to me. So its been a busy season this far. Hopefully they get stuff opened up soon and this stuff goes away so maybe we can be able to get out and ride more. I feel bad for ol Pucster tho I hear his Governor is going a little too far.

  3. You know I ain't been on here much but this crap has gotten way out of hand as far as the toilet paper! And we've had the lock the back door where I works to keep people stealing toilet paper and hand sanitizer!! Sent from my 9029Z using Tapatalk
  4. Then Hatfield lied to me[emoji34] they told me no new ventures for 20.... It's ok they turned me down again. I'll just enjoy Riva and the new bike just the same... Sent from my 9029Z using Tapatalk
  5. Damn Man do me a favor remind me of them!! I totally forgot about them come February! Wonder how much shipping would be to here, even tho I am scared to tear into my forks! I did put Auto Trani fluid in my newest bike and I tell you what that made a world of difference in my forks. Still wouldn't mind haven a progressive springs in front too!!
  6. Damn I was beginning to think that bike kidnapped you Ty... LOL
  7. I want to apoligize for my fumble on the turkey baster, I have meat injectors and syringes from my kids medicine i would use. That almost looks like a fuse of some sort but My bikes don't have that.
  8. Get a screw driver and tap your bowls to see if it will free up the stuck float, also cowpuc likes to call on a turkey baster and use that to flush the bowls from the bowl drain screws. which that also works very well
  9. Actually I don't know how Ben is... but I know what happens when you got friends around helping work on stuff! But good times I know, I bet most of that aldayer will be helping hold chairs to the floor and enjoying some iced tea!
  10. If I remember correctly I believe it took me all of 30-45 minutes to get mine in. But trying to remember if i just pulled the tire out of the way or not...
  11. Well my experience with popping when its in the exhaust is on deccel. If it still pops on deccel with all the gaskets replaced in exhaust then its possibly your air cut off valves. When I tear the carbs apart now I will order the rebuild kits for them and the air cut of valves. It is also possible your diaphragms on the slides are bad also. I would start off cheap and work your way up to the more expensive stuff. I learned that one the hard way! I was having a crazy issue with my bike and it turned out to be a $5.00 spark plug cap. It would get warm and the resistor would rattle. It would cool off and run perfect. Get it hot and it ran kinda like pooh and would not start until sitting for an hour. The popping on acceleration most the time was due to a fouled or bad plug. Now if its popping back at the carbs that sounds like a rich run issue. Also At what point are you shifting in each gear? I know from learning the V4 how to drive/shift it that sometimes it would do that say like 1st to 2nd I was shifting at around 1500 rpms! OOPS starting shifting and getting on it in the correct positions and did not have the issue no more except when she was cold.
  12. Heck I live in Joplin and have to run an amplifier just to get all the joplin stations, since they went digital I have done nothing but fight to get a signal... I have airplanes that come in and out of Joplin regional airport. But not nearly as much as you fool. When I lived out in the country everytime it would rain I was losing signal... What a great Idea to go digital I used to be able to get Springfield, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Joplin stations till the big upgrade...
  13. Maybe they could review the video!
