Man, over the winter I replaced the intake seals on my bike, and checked that I had the appropriate jets in the carb and replaced some gaskets. I guess buell/harley guys recommend replacing the intake seals every ~3 years, and mine were the original from '97. Bike now richer across the board, which is to be expected, but throttle response much better. But... I still get damn hiccups at low rpm's under light throttle / low load, which was the main reason I wanted to attack the seals/carb. I think that requires a needle adjustment or something for low throttle/load enrichment, as it goes away when I pull the choke out a bit. It's rich at idle, though. It's better than before, but still annoying when I'm trying to cruise at low rpm's. Before it would hiccup whenever I tried to rev match when dropping gears, which was super annoying. Not sure if I should even bother to adjust it, or just chalk it up to typical Harley issues. I'm more comfortable with adjusting fuel maps on a PC than messing with a carb. Sad.
Even though I hate those "new" lights, it is still a sweet ass bike
Well what's to say...
It's a 2014 Triumph Street Triple R. 105 BHP @ 11,850RPM and 68NM torque at 9,750RPM. The most perfectly linear power band of any middleweight, adjustable Ohlin's suspension, Brembo brakes w/ABS and a dry weight of 368lbs. She'll be a fully dressed, white sport standard with a seat cowl, belly pan and fly screen, sporting red accents in the gear actuator and rear axle bobbins and protected by Triumph axle and frame sliders, a Rizoma crankcase guard and an R&G alternator cover.
She's a bit more nimble than my cuiser:
And perhaps a bit more stylish:
Round lights are outdated. Welcome to big lights with sharp angles that paint the road with usable light.
