    You do lose some ground clearance....at what I consider one of the most crucial places....


    Green being the frame...blue the exhaust tips...

    Black could be a curb, speed bump or railroad tracks or just a hump.




    It might clear the tranny tunnel but not the exhaust tips...especially being closer to the swing arm if it would bounce up right before you reach the high point of the hump...

    Which would cause the tips to get closer to the ground...


    To me it doesn’t matter if it goes in the tunnel or under it.....you’ve lost ground clearance...


    Now the heat reduction quality sounds interesting...


    Lock the comments and keep the tech info....maybe clean up some of the really bad posts if needed .....and maybe put an “explanation of events for clarification purposes” as the very first post of the thread, as the administrator.


    As a technically new company/owner/management or whatever....let the new reputation good or bad dictate the future involvement.


    A bad reputation sometimes lasts forever...very hard to prove you’ve changed.


    I don’t have any skin in this game .....just a comment from a neutral position....trying to show impartiality....objectively looking at both sides of the issue.

    Once you complete the installation...anytime you disconnect the battery or reconnect it...you better have your remote in hand for when it starts going off.....



    Years ago I had a van with an alarm.....one night it was raining like crazy and the van was outside in the driveway....the alarm kept going off...don’t know if it was because of the heavy rain setting off the glass breaking feature or the shock feature...could have been rocking from the storm wind...but I had to sleep with the remote in my hand until the storm passed...to keep turning it off...


    I’m sure the neighbors liked my alarm...


    My SS was doing the same thing from the cover flapping in the wind.....for that reason I don’t use the alarm in my driveway....

    Just the way I think, but I would never leave my SS unattended at a place/event where alcohol is being served....don’t like leaving it when it isn’t being served...


    I don’t really like crowds for that same reason....buttholes are everywhere ...

    Three days after bringing our brand new 2015 SS (#887 off the line) i was out in the garage when suddenly smoke bellowed out from under the rear fin area. Voltage regulator at the camera had burn through. I'm sure there was a flame because there was a hole, not melted. What scared me was the gas tank that was 6" away.


    Gave them a complete report back then. Only took three years to have enough cases I guess.


    Wonder if my 16.5 model needs to be looked at.

    Not very comforting...

    Our 2015 SL is not coming up under this recall.................................


    I wonder if this recall will correct the radio reception issue some have had?


    Bill

    I thought that had to do with the placement and short length of the antenna....behind the radio?

    I forgot to add that NAFTA signed by Bill Clinton killed many good paying auto and steel jobs....over 100,000 steel workers lost their jobs....doesn’t sound like a big deal until you realize that for every steelworker that lost a job 14 people in related jobs lost theirs....that means about 1.5 million workers altogether. Not counting the many other jobs that were lost to Mexico, China and Japan.


    Trump just now is signing the new renegotiated trade deal...USMCA


    That is why buying American is still just as important today as it ever was...

    Several issues here...


    #1. Concerning slumping harley sales.....probably has to do with the price of a at best 3 season vehicle. Every video I see from overseas that shows people driving two wheel vehicles...they aren’t big touring bikes....they are small rice burners....don’t forget how much fuel costs overseas....they sell it by the quart/ liter.


    France which is socialist where everyone gets everything for “free”.....is having riots now because they have to pay the piper....30 cents tax was added to fuel prices last year and now they want 25 more cents....these ”socialist kids” think all the free stuff (college, healthcare, retirement) comes from money made out of thin air...and nobody really ultimately has to pay for it...and you wonder why they don’t buy vehicles and houses and don’t marry? That means you would have to give up the job of protesting capitalism and get a real job.


    #2 new vehicle prices today are more than what I paid for my house in 1984...so are they pricing themselves out of the market? And if you look at the commercials now they are offering savings of $10-12,000. Does that reflect what the actual cost should really be?


    The only way I see an electric car in my future is if there is no other choice. There are gasoline stations on every corner....how long before the same can be said for charging stations?


    #3 ...I used to be a union steelworker....they backed democrats....so does the auto workers... president trump just gave the steelworkers 25% tariff on foreign steel to save steel jobs and auto jobs...but they still backed the Democrats in the midterms. He denounced Carrier for closing plants....they still voted for democrats.. now the auto workers that lost their jobs wants trump to fix the problem...but they still voted for democrats.....does anyone see a problem here? Next election they will continue to vote democratic. And cry because trump couldn’t save their job...which the democrats killed and really don’t care if you lost your job.....do you hear them trying to save the jobs on TV? .......CRICKETS CHIRPING...... hurray for me and screw you....thanks for your vote I still have my high paying job and wonderful heath care and fantastic retirement package...


    Why would the internationals still want you to back the democrats, At the cost of losing your job? Too much back scratching...there is too much money involved with the top union officials.....who are just trying to protect their jobs....kinda sound like corporate greed....doesn’t it....they will collect higher unuion dues from the very last employees..


    #4...Corporate greed dictates the status of your employment...the bottom line and investors returns .....not sales or motor size or gas or electric. The loyalty is not to workers or quality products....or NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING would ever be made in China. Proof positive that product quality or employees wellbeing doesn’t matter.


    #5...China is stealing our intellectual property because we gave them the blueprints (which costs us millions in research and development and millions of man hours) for free so corporations can save a nickel and cut your benefits. Corporate greed companies are cutting their own throat by doing this. That’s why your good paying jobs left the country. That’s why CEOs make millions to your hundreds....he’s protecting the bottom line for stock holders....not for your future...even if he does a horrible job he’ll retire with millions which came off the skin of your back...while you collect unemployment.

    Some nuts are slightly egg shaped too...for that locking reason...they would round out upon installation....so removing them you lose the locking action by reuse.
