    Well after 47 years of being on this planet I have FINALLY gotten a Harley! I've been riding motorcycles since the 7th grade. Various dirt bikes then onto a Suzuki Maurader onto a BMW F650CS all the while wanting a Harley. Finally decided to pull the trigger on a 02 FLSTFi with a stage 1 kit. This thing is loud and beastly and is right up my alley. Previous owner told me it had the 10k mile tuneup but after calling up the Harley dealership to verify I found out that was a load of crap. After picking it up and riding it home it had a bad tendency to pitch out going through a turn. Come to find out the clown only had 15 psi in the rear tire. SAY WHAT?! The bike seems to run great but need to do a maintenance rundown.

    If anyone else has an 02 Fatboy out there could you let me know what kind to things typically go wrong?
