Starting to think my weird idle issues had a lot to do with the battery. It's better but still off which I think has to do with Lloyd's filter and tuning. It runs worse at idle with tune I have for a Lloyd's.

It's my fault for doing too many changes at once. I dropped in Lloyd's, keyless ignition, and a new tune before ever starting bike. Then the totally random idle issues came about. Mostly battery but idle needs some love and I am working on log data to tinker on that.

Still working on assembling bike back to how I had it before insurance claim. Installing a Victory brand backrest to try it place of the one that came with bike that I hate. I'm hoping Victory one will fit me better.

Insurance hasn't paid me yet but still pricing parts. It's really not much damage that can't be fixed it's just hard to match the original paint without new Victory prepainted parts.

Read a story many decades ago ,
in Easyriders bike magazine, on Elvis Presley, said he had every model Harley just about, and late at night he would choose one,
and throw Priscilla on the back , and they would just ride!.....how romantic...��

Put on new to me Victory branded driver backrest. Not sure what genius designed that to crush the brake lines. Added spacers to elevate it.
I think I'll like it better than my other backrest that came with bike.

Added 6.5 to the front. Sounds pretty good to me. Took me forever to get fairing closed back up. The offset adapter but for whatever reason first try as in the instructions wasn't working. Ended up reversing the adapters which shouldn't matter. They still touch outer fairing but everything lines up after a little push down on the top holes.

Next is trunk speakers. One is done and the buzzing is annoying me.

Saturday I installed a set of Shinko SE890 Journey tires with balance beads, new rear brake pads, lubed the rear suspension pivot and clutch cable ends, did an engine & filter change and gave the bike a once over.
Of all things find... and after all the HOURS of work I put in to fix it up, I found the paint splitting on my right sidecover, again!! I really could not believe it, the panel must have an "internal" crack because no matter what, even the professional job, had failed...I'm not buying a new cover or paying for paint or bothering with that BS again... Since I had plenty of matte black vinyl wrap left over I decided to vinyl wrap the lower portion of the panel, which will hold the paint together. Its not an exact match to the flat black that I painted the panel but its close, to me it looks like a "kick guard" on the cover.

What is the strange looking notch on the right side of the side cover in the picture? I don't think that notch is on a stock side cover.

Oil change, clutch cable end lube, and switched back to the homemade Atom bomb style muffs. The Tri-Ovals weren't bad sounding but to my ear the cherry bomb's sound better. I gave up mid-range power with the T-O's as well. Will be good to have that back.

When I finally realized idle was better with stock tune on Lloyd's filter I scrapped it and started over. Logging data tonight and I'll run the numbers later. Kept the VE table from that tune as a base so should be in the ballpark. Running pretty well on way home.

Breaking in my insurance replacement helm. Probably go get some wind this weekend it's still tight.
