    Yes, issue got solved with one new seal in the fuel pump. BDM has the kit and they are selling them much cheaper than one can get the parts anywhere else.

    I took it for a ride today, and I am seriously debating swapping to pegs in the front. With those boards a feel like a stupid looking MC cop.

    Boards are kind of nice once you get used to them...

    I'm not sure man, but I'll give it another few rides. Riding the bagger as compared to the K-9 is like going on a mini bike kinda feeling...

    It is nice to move your feet around on boards on longer trips...

    Yeah, but I do that on the pegs too. I just ordered a new set of pegs from Donna and will try both ways.

    When I saw Rick the other day he mentioned the boards and said they weren't in the right spot. We talked about the 2.5"extensions with the boards might give a better position.

    Something else to try maybe. I assume the boards will be very advantageous on a long trip.

    I already put the extensions on them, something that needs a little modification. Still think pegs is my way. I guess when you have used pegs for 47 years, it just becomes a habit....

    Well Rick is looking for a set of extensions if you don't want to keep them

    Donna has them, I'm keeping the extensions regardless. I talked to Rick about it. Rear brake hose needs to be replaced and some grinding/drilling on the shifter.

    An inch longer shifter and rear brake lever(?) might help a bit. Gives about an inch more room for feet to go forward

    I think it's just the fact that they are boards, and I'm used to pegs.

    That might work. A new handlebar altogether will work too. Or maybe just fire up the torch and adjust them our liking?

    Did u look the fuel tank for dirt/rust? But for close the filter in 1 mile needs a lot of dirt and this would close the fuel line.
    Maybe malfunction of Tip over switch closes Ignition and fuel pump.
    if pull Ignition on and start u can hear the fuel pump? fuel pump relais can make trouble also.
    Never saw this type of bagger in Original.
    Got my new switchboards and my EHC back today. Weekend will dog complete again, make service and at 04/01/ go for the first
    ride this year.
    See your bagger on unleashed in original?
