Not much to report, just installed that new straight petcock which allowed me to re-route the line down and behind the rear cylinder instead of the up-and-over-the-top of the rocker box forced by the 90 degree petcock. Doesn’t look like much, but it makes a huge diff not having that line hanging out in space.
Nothing better than an ice cold Corona and communing with an Ironhead for about 30 minutes. Feels good to make an improvement on her, however minor. She just keeps getting better and better.
It really unclutters the right side of the bike. Riding her daily, should be doing the 500 mile oil change in a day or two, from 50 wt. to 60. BTW— No more nightmares!
I don’t really mind gnarly looking pipes, although a new set of drags are the next item on the list. I can’t wait to back off throttle and hear that snarly, crackling exhaust. Part of the fun in riding a Harley. Probably not a real reserve— the petcock’s not sitting vertical. We shall see… I do like the filter screen, though.
