Good touring bike then. I think the new TR3's are 2500 cc's. Biggest production motorcycle engine.

How's the longevity on these engines so far? I know there's are a ton of variables but are they routinely getting over 100k out of them before rebuilds?

From what I'm reading yes, they seem to be reliable and long living. Early ones like mine have had some transmission problems but like all vehicles you hear of the 20 bad ones not the 2500 good ones. Mine seems fine.

I've always liked those bikes but sadly I haven't seen many on the road the last few years like I used to. Kind of like a Victory!

Are those aftermarket pipes? If so, howzit sound? I like that the license plate doubles as a splash guard.

Got the cable today to plug into the ECU, now I can load maps, sync the throttle bodies, turn off the o2 sensor, raise the RPM limit, raise the max speed limit, do diagnostic checks and more. The software is TUNE ECU and it's free, the cable cost me $20. Simple plug and play. Tons of maps outside of the web site.

funny that you posted this because this weekend i am taking the XR to a dealer down in NYC with a Rocket 3 Touring....
tired of getting the BS run around with searching for parts for the XR..
What happened?

You won't be disappointed l have owned 3 of them
My ignition stitch went out.....as I pulled into the driveway. The dreaded white wire except it didn't come unsoldered the contact on the back side had worn to the point it lost contact. I have a new ignition switch ordered. The suggestion on the forums is to go to LED headlights to ease the draw on the white wire and stop the wear. I like LED headlights and this was something I was going to do anyway.

From reading the Rocket forums replacing the halogen headlights with LED's does the same thing. Who the hell thought mixing a high draw halogen X2 into the ignition was a good idea is a moron.
