    EZ, I don't know whether to take you seriously or not lol

    Here's a [crappy] video of the bike idling in 35*F.

    Stock bikes are so cherry! - lol - one of two things - timing could be too advanced, or stuck lifters from very cold oil stuck - did you try injecting some Marvel Mystery Oil down the push rod areas to lube/free up the lifters?

    What makes you say the timing is off or lifters are stuck?

    I haven't done anything to the bike but ride it.

    There is a clicking in the video, I just watched it on my phone and I think that's the chain he has his bike locked up with Ed

    Yeah, that chain was rattling. I'll make another video sometime and not compress it so it's better quality.

    That works I was listening to it as well and heard it but it didn't sound like a sound from the Blast and saw the chain lol. How does that work out chaining the wheel to the exhaust? I don't really bother cause I can just about lift the whole bike and with a friend we can move it across the parking lot without it touching the ground. I just let the steering lock do the deterring

    In SF I used to lock my bike to parking meters and street poles - they would steal anything there - lol - I watched some bike thieves load up a work truck with motorcycles right outside the courthouse where I had Jury duty - just bizarre.
