Re: Goldwing Wannabes

Rumor has it that Harley is moving some of it's production to India.The diehard Harley guys will tell you that the last real Harley was a Shovelhead.When was that last built?Early 70's or late 60's?Just before AMF almost ruined them.

Re: Rear Thermistor Failed Inspection

as far as I know its wired to the element in series so you will have to strip your seat SOMEONE (DAVE) said they will not work without them WHY
