Just bought an 03 about a month ago, I've wanted one since they came out and thankfully I located a beautiful unmolested specimen. I wanted to see if anyone else is from this area and if people ever meet up? I also wanted to know if anyone can tell me why the small induction tube by the cluster is blocked off?
Congrats on the purchase!
I'm not from Indy, but I can tell you that the blocked off tube is likely for your intake flapper valve. In stock form it lowers noise in a specific RPM range to help the bike pass drive by noise standards. The bike runs better with it defeated, and you can remove the assembly all together if you purchase a block off plate.
I'm from Decatur and I tried to pick up the one up here but a deal was already made. I figured he was a part of this forum. The one I picked up came from Cincinnati but that owner only had it for about 6 months. He said this bike came from eastern Ohio someplace. It has the woodpecker stickers on it and yosh slip ons but otherwise looks like it just came off the showroom.
