Default hello

Potential Stryker owner here, just kinda checking things out before i get back to riding again. My last bike was a 2001 Yamaha R6. i sold it when my kids were toddlers(15 or 16 years ago).

Currently looking at a 2015 Stryker that is in my area

Wish me luck!

Lafayette, La

Hi MrRuss, a warm welcome from Southern Arizona. Good to have you on board. Lots of great information available here. Good to see you are getting back in to riding. Enjoy the people, the forum, and cruisin' on your Stryker.

My last bike ( in Shreveport at the time) was Kawasaki zx9r. I let the kids get up in age a bit, increased the life insurance, and found a 2015 stryker on scratch and dent spacial. Lol. Bike is awesome. Really enjoying getting rid of the scratches and dents too. Gonna try a rattle can paint job next -- dang YouTube.

rode the bike a few times and i had a question.

in the lower gears, 1st ,2nd, maybe 3rd if i hold the throttle steady it kind of jerks like it wants to rev higher or starves for fuel for a second but i wasn't sure if there was something wrong with it because i bought it at a dealer and they didn't have much info on it as far as maintenance wise.

i did have a bit of a scare when i changed the oil(first thing i did). the oil drain plug was tight all the way out. the bolt had flat threads but the hole in the bike looked ok. hand threaded a new bolt a few times all the way in to make sure.

so i that's why i had the question about the throttle, maybe the bike wasn't taken care of too well.

Before the flash and intake/ exhaust upgrades I found I had to use clutch and higher revs to stay out of "the jerking zone". Slowing down/ down shift to turn was bad. Ivan's flash has done away with 85 to 90 percent.

Anything below 15 is still rough even with the 30t but seeing how these are geared low end, it's expected. Bike is way better behaved with tune and 30t, A/M exhaust and open intake. Pittsburgh City driving blows but it would blow with any bike IMO, your either dodging potholes, or debris on the road especially last two years with all this rain we have gotten.
