ONE of a Kind

Seeing if anyone would be interested in my Raider.  It is really hard to sell her, but would feel better seeing to someone on this forum.  Check out my pics.

More Information

I have burned up my clutch the last week. I have only 7,000 miles on the bike but most of them are in town riding with aggressive acceleration from the lights. This seems a little premature in my opinion. I installed a second OEM diagram clutch spring the first year I had the bike. This made a world of difference.

The clutch options I am considering:

1. Replace with what I am currently running. Two OEM
 diaphragm springs and OEM steel and friction plates.

2. Barnett spring conversation kit with OEM steel and friction plates.

3. Barnett spring conversion kit with Barnett steels and Kevlar friction plates.

My concern with number three would be the clutch would not slip and cause problems with my gears. The clutch is a cheep sacrificial lamb compared to other componenets. As a side note I do not ride the clutch causing it wear out. I believe the 300 mm rear tire has a lot to do with it.

Thoughts?

General Raider Discussion / FM Crusaders Bike Show 2012
« on: Mar 17, 2012, 09:06:40 PM »
With blood, sweat, tears, $$$, advice from my RoadStarRaider family and endless time in the garage I finally got my ride set up in the FM Crusaders Bike Show in Fargo, ND. I snapped a few pictures and will get a bunch more tomorrow. None of these really show the bike well (blame it on the photographer and not the bike  ;)).

Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so I hope to get some good pics.

Enjoy and thanks to all of you!!! I couldn't have done it without everyone!!!!!

Technical Discussion / Bronze Wool
« on: Mar 02, 2012, 11:12:09 PM »
I have heard a lot about Bronze Wool and was wondering if it would work for this situation. I am cleaning my chrome with Plexus (recommended by MyWorld a couple of years ago) and the stuff works great. The problem I am having is trying to get the little bits to dried on bug remains off of the chrome. I have some Yamaha Polish in a tube that works great but it is two step process. First putting the polish on a rag and rubbing the area to for the bug remains off and then get a clean cloth to remove the haze left behind from polishing.

Hopefully Broze Wool would be an easy alternative.

Thanks!!

Mods and Accessories / New Paint Job - Hhhhmmmmm
« on: Feb 01, 2012, 02:24:46 PM »
Well I have been waiting for the right time to get a new paint job on my ride. At this point the tank is off and bike is in piece so it makes sense to do it know. Currently my ride is the Black Raven (the fast color) but I want a change. Looking for some opinions:

Mods and Accessories / Before and After Pics -PCS Dogbones?
« on: Jan 27, 2012, 09:37:15 PM »
Does anyone have a side view picture of their bikes before and after installing PCS Dogbones? Ideally I want to install a Tricky Air Ride system to lower my ride but running out of money and therefor may try the PCS route. Just wondering how much lower 1.75" really looks.

Let me know if anyone is selling a set

Mods and Accessories / Tejas Comes Through Again!!
« on: Jan 19, 2012, 07:20:32 PM »
I want to thank Brent and Timmy for their help on getting me hooked up with some new platinum cables. I have worked with Tejas in the past and love their customer service. It is the reason I keep going back.

Their original price was much higher than what I found on other sites. Brent and Timmy to my surprised called me back and said they opened a new account with another vender on steel cables which allowed them to drop their price. No offense to their competition but I originally tried Tejas but they were too high so I was about to place the order when Timmy called and said he got me the same price.

Thanks Tejas!!!

I am now one of the staff members that gets to travel around the country and hunt. It would be a blast to hook up with someone from this site on a hunt.

Anyway check out the air times on TV.

Mods and Accessories / Rear Fender
« on: Jan 07, 2012, 03:41:16 PM »
Has anyone ever build a fender for the Raider that has been attached to the rear swingarm rather than the frame. I am going to build a new fender over the next months and looking for some advice.

I am looking to have the fender wrap tight to the rear wheel (similar to HD Rocker (not a HD fan)). This will be my first home made mod.

« on: Jan 05, 2012, 08:08:27 PM »
I am going to get new personalized plates and looking for some input. I have a couple ideas but if you have something let me know.

As many of you know I am running a 300mm rear wheel and want to focus on that. Here are a couple ideas:

RLNAFTY - Rolling A Fatty
300MM
PHATTY
BIGWHLS - Big Wheels

Mods and Accessories / Custom Swing Arm Bag - Need Suggestions
« on: Mar 30, 2011, 10:16:44 PM »
I need someone to make me a custom swing arm bag. I have the layout completed just need someone to build it. Any suggestions on who can sew me up a leather bag. I believe I asked Royal5 a will back and he doesn't make bags.

The bag is going to be very clean, no thrills. Dimensions: 11"H x 14"L x 4"D

Thanks in advance.
