    I got my 2006 XB9SX from the first owner with over 7000 miles on it. Thought it was noisy but never had a Harley powered anything. Changed transmission oil at dealership with the recommended transmission oil and some noise was gone. Put this in engine today with K&N oil filter and it sounds like a new bike!

    Anybody think I made a mistake with the engine oil choice?

    Oh, also I repainted, tried for Joker Purple

    I think the oil was a fine choice. Purple's not my thing, but it looks like you paid good attention to decals.

    I looked at my bikes today...as I was inventorying the house after someone tried to break in. Dogs chased them off, we're still in a hotel waiting on contractors to inspect/fix the electrical system.

    That olive-drab green looks stealthy. Also, side note... what did you use to build all this web forum and app stuff? I'm trying to learn the Drupal 8 CMS and wondered what this was done with.

    The olive drab has been mostly sanded off, it was horrible looking up close. The bike is now all white (new plastics).

    The forum is built with vBulletin 4.2.X and the web app is self-branded Tapatalk. The server is running CentOS, MySQL and MariaDB on the back end.

    Just a little bump to this thread....

    Installed the Iridium Racing Spark Plug and new wire this week.
    Removed most of the plastic guards/fenders.
    Royal Purple MaxCycle 20w50 for the Oil/Gear lube with a Purolator filter has shipped. I'm based in Michigan so I'm waiting for nights to rise above freezing for the fluid change.
    Pirelli Diablos should be in within the week.
    Fork Oil (7.5) will arrive today. Plan on fluid change with tires.
    K&N BU-5000 drop-in filter is shipped. Looking to do the upgraded air-box mod until I get my hands on a SuperBoot.
    New signal lights and clutch/brake master cylinder levers are on their way.


    Looking forward to a few performance and cosmetic upgrades!

    I'll keep browsing this forum for the proper air-box mod, as well as a good time to shim the needle.
    I'll be ordering jets and performance exhaust together when the time comes.
    I'm looking for a good road-ready ride, then soup her up with performance and handling.

    Also trying to dial in a good name for the new ride...

    Just finished my new exhaust last night with a buddy. Pre 04 Sportster front header pipe cut down with a stock sportster slip on muffler that we slash cut the end. We fabricated a mount using a grounding rod and some plate that mounts to the kickstand bracket and using the existing mounting location on the muffler. I wrapped the header with DEI titanium exhaust wrap. Its pretty loud but looks way better than the stock set up.
