Default My Jackpot 2012 from Norway

Here is my Jackpot 2012 model that I have worked a lot on this winter. Now summer is finally underway and I got the bike ready for the season. I have used the winter to change wheels, tires, fork and lots of smaller parts. The engines also got a round of parts from Lloyd,s . The bike stands today as an upgraded Jackpot for my personal taste. It arouses much attention here in Norway, which I appreciate. There are many hours behind and a lot of thinking ...
Parts are from, among other things Arlen Ness, Lloyd,s, KewlMetal, Metzeler.

I received many warnings that putting on 300 tires would seriously undermine the handling of the bike. Same was when I mounted KewlMetal 45 ProStreet fork.

Attention, do not believe in that kind of statement. The bike is is lovely to drive. That I can guarantee.

Much appreciated feedback :-)

Lokescotty, that is one gorgeous bike right there. Might I ask what you used for your tool bag mount?

Really nice looking, like the fly screen. Wheels are amazing. How much more are you going to do?

Hey. Thank you for your feedback. I am attaching some pictures of how I have attached my tool bag. This is an aluminum rail which I have attached to the same mounting as the oil cooler. The tool bage I mounted two rails that fit back into the aluminum rail. Then insert a set screw to prevent it from slipping off.
Good luck :-)

Hey. I'm going to mount a steering damper for optimal handling during high speed. (I like it :-)). I notice during high speeds 180 km and up .. the bike can wobble a bit of uneven road surfaces. In Norway we have a lot of bad road surface.
I will not only have a typical cruiser, but also one that can be run in a little greater speeds with hilly roads. Hope you understand my writing ....;-)

Beyond this I will next winter building up my motor to larger volumes of parts from Lloyd, pp.

Attach picture of the steering damper I'll mount ...

Thanks for your feedback!

You might want to wait to find out if it works for him.

Steering dampers are popular on sportbikes because they have very little rake leading to marginally stable steering i.e. they change direction very easily. Often, setting down the front tire after accelerating can lead to some headshake in that type of machine.

Choppers are on the other end of the spectrum. They have huge rake and are usually stable as a tanker in a straight line. Their problem is that it takes too much input to change direction at speed.

I suspect he is suffering from a different problem causing his wobble. Maybe the damper will mask it, but I'd wait for his results.

Choppers are not exactly a high speed bikes yannow. Might wanna check the speed rating on that front tire.

Harley tourers were famous for speed wobbles. People sell braces for their frames that fix that. Doubt that a steering head damper would made any difference. In 2009, Harley got around to fixing the frame.

If this is any indication, your Hammer should be stable as hell at speed:
