Blew primary chain on my 131. Catastrophic damage. Broke at 6000 rpm passing a car. Bike has 163 tq at the tire. So it’s being shipped back from the Kooteney‘s to my home store to get fixed on warranty which will probably take months. I was pretty distraught and needing some happiness so I bought an 08 street glide with 20,000 km that’s like new. Nice younger man on it forever. Road from Beaumont to an acreage by Devon to visit my brother shut it off shore on my bike had a beer. Went to leave bike won’t start. WTF. I’m assuming Jesus doesn’t want me riding right now. One good news is when the glide blew up my back tire locked up at around 80 miles an hour 2 up with wife and I didn’t crash and die lol

Final verdict on 131. Compensator blew at full throttle. Crank won’t turn over even without plugs. Can’t get Stater off crank. Major damage. Starter toast. Clutch toast.
Street glide was easy fix. Put all new fuses in it and cleaned the fuse box and the fuel pump works all the time

So nice to back on the glide. Bike seems really good. The little vibration I was feeling for the last while is gone. LOL Back of my mind I’m still hearing it going boom so I was a little gun shy to go real fast. But Between Bentley and Breton I did get up to 200 for a bit. Then back down to 125. laser Jammer radar system saved me and my buddie twice today.

Now I have to convince the wife that I need to keep the street glide. I like orangie. I am truly blessed to work hard and play hard
