LOL -in similar crisis with 2000 - but you have clicking which suggests first check fuses, then check grounds front and rear - must be clean and tight. Then go down diagnostic chart.

Can't say that I have - however, the Pirelli Night Dragons were the best tires I ever ran on my Dyna!

Finally been riding my Blast! Over 200 miles in the last week. Will start driving it to work weather permitting.

I'm currently using 175/45 lets with no air filter and a V&H exhaust. Idle screw is out 2 1/2 turns. No shim on needle.

I picked up some #4 washers and plan on using one or two of them soon.

Best I've done on the bike is 97 MPH. I'm 5' 9" and 178 lbs. Should I expect more out of it or is that pretty good?

You can do it with a 2000, but not the rest in stock form, unless you follow Blueblast's idea - lol

Valve float happens at appx. 6800 rpm, downhill or not! So it is very risky pushing it past 96mph.
Rev limiter is set at 6500 rpm.

I do have a long steep downgrade near me. I just want to do it one time. Every time I get on it I go at least 80. Did 85 at one point during my morning commute today.

Just a note to old time badwebbers - chances are - sooner or later you may have problems logging in - look to your security hard/software - if you do so manually - it will work, but if your waiting for it to fill in correctly - it may not - security - sigh...I have to hit the preview/post Message button twice - the first time - says it's invalid, and the second time my security lets it through - so I feel for you.
