I'm justing pointing to our redisdent Kook that his lame attempts at creating aliases are not fooling anyone but himself.



Did you notice this latest one has a handle of J (jack) Kofsky?



This man actually claims to be 33 years old?



Another topic: Have you done any engine mods to your fatboy?

Zero mods. My friend who has same year Heritage (inj) did the filter-exhaust upgrade and that put me off for a long time. What noise. I always raced ahead or dropped well back not to have to listen to it. However, I recently rode it first time and, hell, got to get the kit myself. It has man-and-the-machine feeling, its like what I imagine them guys got when they rode those first aeroplanes. What I am getting now is VW beetle sounds (and acceleration).



I am not looking much change from one grand US though, so total cost of the thingie is approaching 18,000. I like my fatsy but for that money I feel bitterly short changed in the power department.

I put the H-D touring mufflers on my Geezer Glide and they are not much louder than stock but flow better. I've also got the air filter and 203 cam. My neighbor has his own shop so I get quite the discount when it comes to P&A.

Check out that link. According to the latest Power and Performance (Cycle World), bump my current configuration to 95 inch and the $250 heads and it returned 90 hp and 100 ft lbs. That's plenty.



I'm currently at 75 hp and 85 ft lbs.

Default the SoCal Hybrid...

I do believe that "mule" XR is a much coolified Kawwie Zephyr (750 or 1100?). That swingarm eccentric is the key me thinks.....

The frame looks like a Sportster (check out the oil tank on the left in the rear-wheel close-up shot.) The swingarm might be Kawi. I believe the wheels are Yamaha.
