I bought this fence post to bend handlebar back to normal. The handlebar was turned to the right, if the handlebar was turned to the left the mirror would break and handlebar would hit the tank! Ask me how I know that lol! :ROFLMAO:

Maybe use something else like non-skid material the bottom of seat is fiberglass and it kinda slides on the metal fender - you can see where the pad is.

Pretty much all gear, but they have a big selection!

As hot as has been here I just stay along the coast for riding, Hanzo was thinking of going to Crystal Lake but Azusa Rd. is closed due to fire danger!

9-10-22 I put some gas in the Sportster and it fired up! (y)

Tire Wheel Fuel tank Automotive fuel system Vehicle


Also, the oil overflowed and gas is leaking?! Wow was really excited to hear the bike, haha the oil splatter was the "Marvel Mystery Oil" shooting out of the pipes! I somehow knew what button to hit that starts it! Probably the owner's manual shows the controls on the handlebars, my service manual doesn't show that. Not rocket science, or is it?

Drained what oil was left in oil tank, and I had to tighten the bottom bowl on the carb. Will put some oil in and tomorrow and fire it up again!
