Re: Overheating Electraglide
As for basics, they all have EFI now I do believe -

What are you wearing? If shorts and it gets red then I would have no idea if its normal because I never rode a big twin in shorts.

If jeans or the classic ass-less chaps then no it is not normal.

What the hell good are assless chaps anyway - your gonna slide on your ass. Seems like a leather over-diaper makes more sense than chaps, at least in the summer . . . and as for looking cool in the diaper, nobody looks that cool in the chaps anyway . . .

"2) The engine knocks or pings - fuel injected Harleys should never knock - right?"

If it's your typical straight-piped Harley, how would you even know? Fjorkers are fnorkin' DEAFENING even at idle.

Trade it in for an ST1300 or FJR1300.
