Re: Cv jetting for Knucklehead question

I've run a CV40 on my panhead (74") since 2004. I run a #50 pilot jet and a #185 main jet and an N86E needle. I settled on this configuration within the first few months of installing the CV40 and...

Re: New places to mount oil cooler??

I'm in Arizona too. Out-of-site was secondary to me. I want good cooling. I put it right out front and a little to the left so the front wheel doesn't block the air.

Re: Honing fork tube lowers

I don't know of a source for these tools (41mm or 33.4mm). I looked for years before a found a used set for 41mm. I never found anyone making them new today.

Re: Brown hard grime on panhead heads

You can press a hollow sleeve into the oil galley from the gasket side. That will work in some cases. The JB weld has trouble with the high cylinder head temps. In my experience that fix will last a...

Re: Brown hard grime on panhead heads

Yup. It's common for pans to leak in this spot. Small fissures in the oil return galley leak oil through the side of the head in between the fins. Creates a hell of a mess.

Re: Advise on Cylinder bore Panhead

I put over 100k miles on a set of +0.060" cylinders/piston/rings. I ran them through 7 Arizona summers and never had any problem with heat. Those same cylinders are now at +0.080" and going strong...

Re: How hard do you ride your old bike?

I ride mine hard. It gets 15,000+ a year which is quite a bit for an old '49 FL. I don't beat the shit out of it though. I fix things before they break. There's a difference between riding hard and...

Re: 2-under 41mm ('49-77) fork tubes...anybody got a source?

Frank's is a small operation. They may be on vacation. I've done lots of business with them. Always have what I've needed.

Re: Shovelhead Kickstart

A properly tuned motor is easy to start. This was the very first try ever for this Noob. Got it started on the fourth kick.

Re: Panhead over pressurizing with oil????

Yes, the screw can be turned all the way in. Don't need to make it tight, just snug.

Re: Making a checklist turning pan/shov back to PAN

Outside oilers is not a "must" in my book unless you dual plug the heads. When you dual plug the heads, the second plug goes right through the oil supply galley. You have to find some other way to...

Re: Making a checklist turning pan/shov back to PAN

If your panheads are not already outside oilers, there is a bit of machine work needed to make them work that way. You'll need to find someone who has the jig the drill through the head at the...

You polarized the generator after installing and hooking up, correct?

Re: Dyna 2000i voes wire

I'd hate to just guess at which curve will work best for you. If you can run the more aggressive curve, you'll make more power.

I put a toggle switch in the top motor mount bracket. You can see...

Re: Dyna 2000i voes wire

Why not try the toggle switch trick I posted in my first post above. This way you can select either curve and really feel the difference. It's nice to be able to do easy back-to-back comparison....

Re: Dyna 2000i voes wire

When the wire is grounded it selects the more aggressive advance curve. Since my bike is light and can operate well with the more advanced curve, I ground the wire.

There are a couple other...

Re: Best year pan?

Re: Best year pan?

I love all the pans. My favorite is the one I'm riding at the time :-)

Seriously though, any of them can make a great motor. Don't cut corners on your build. Have someone who knows pans really...

Re: Remote Oil Filter Poll

I put on way too many miles to pass on a filter. I want my motor to go 100K+ miles. I'm not a big fan of how they look but I wouldn't build a bike without a good filtering system.

There is a 1.5" belt under this cover. There are 3/8" spacers between inner and outer to allow better air flow.

Re: Pan Questions

How does a filter plumbed into the feed line work? The feed is gravity, no pressure.
