    Someone on the board did over 140 on a GPS on the autobahn. May be the gas is better there. I am sure the roads are too. I want to say he said he did 145 with a hexhead. Interesting.

    That's a good thing. My guess is that the new engine has tighter tolerances, better materials and with unit construction, just a stiffer engine, not to mention the benefits of liquid cooling. I guess...

    I've done the bar backs and peg lowering kit too. I have a Calsci XL windscreen too. The seat is the only shortcoming left. There are lots of options, but since I do mostly commuting now, I haven't...

    I am surprised it went that high at 90˚F. I have been in traffic over 100˚ and it has never gotten that hot. A little over the second line. How long were you idling in traffic?

    So did Chevrolet and Ford. It's just amazing that they would have any trouble with them. A member of my local MOA club said that every K1600 sold in AZ before June of 2012 had at least one water pump...

    I am at the same place. I figure a quart every 5-6K miles is okay and that's an improvement. The real change came after the 18K mile service.
