Updates after long time.
Motorcycle is doing fine. Had first breakdown, more on that later. Odo currently stands at 17350kms.
Overall fuel economy stands at 22.8kmpl
I was on my way to office in the morning. Just before entering the premises, I felt some leak. Looked down and wassurprised to see liquid dripping. Initially I thought it must be fuel as it was directly below fuel tank and was scared motorcycle might be on fire but it wasn't smelling gasoline. It was the coolant. Called the RSA which came promptly in an hour. Diagnosis by Harley was that clamp holding the coolant inlet gave away(this is first case) and was given after replacing the clamp.
Apart from this one breakdown, ownership has been fuss free. Starts always at the first crank, engine is as lovely as day one and always brings a smile on your face.
Random pics of ride attached
Harley Street in India is very famous for its brakes or the lack of it. There are lots of protests going on in different parts of the country. Front is spongy. Rear is very weak, has too much travel ans stops acting are riding for quite some time (plus hard compound tyres).
Brake upgrade included acouple of changes
- changing front and rear master cylinder
- use steel braided lines for front and rear
- relocate rear master cylinder away from exhaust
- change pads to EBC semi sintered.
Braking has tremendously improved, should have been this way ideally from factory. Will post pics later
