  2. Default Illinois

    I live in the country south of Ottawa Illinois. I work in Joliet IL. The local Harley dealer was selling 8 Buell Blast's for $800 each. This included title transfer and license plates. I decided to snag one up and use it to commute on nice days.
    Just doing some maintenance and upgrades to it before I take it out.

    Loosen up the primary adjuster by 18 to 25 flats out from where it is.

    No, it does not shift past 2nd. I did the 24 inch pounds method. I should adjust it out 18 to 25 flats from there?
