  • Hello from Finland

    In the spring, I started riding a motorcycle again, after a 20-year hiatus. I bought a Drag Star (650 cc) in the spring, drove it for about 2000km and sold it just under 2 months after purchase. I bought Wild Star (2002) instead and have not regretted the exchange. Now the season runs are starting to pass, the meter came about 5500 km.

    I have updated the motorcycle slightly. Kuryakyn USB power source, JMP battery monitor, bright headlight (Eagle Lights Generation III), LED auxiliary lights, K&N air intake system and Cobra Power Pro HP exhaust. Next week I will probably get dyno results.

    Plans to make a trip to the Alps next summer, if the corona allows it.

      If you ever want to sell your Wild Star tank badges please give me the opportunity. I am curious about your passenger foot peg setup?

      I don't think I've ever seen that color combination. Nice looking bike!

        I don’t know the manufacturer, and I don’t even know if they’re comfortable. With double pipes (Vance & Hines), those got the footpegs lower. Now there is no problem with having a 2 in 1 pipe.

        Did you change the jets in the carburetor? With the intake and exhaust modifications it would be necessary. Also no real reason to dynontest the bike with those simple modifications.

          I did nothing for the carburetor, but took the bike to the dyno test for adjustment (jets & needle).

            From California. Two Finns in one week. I think that's a record. So... Mäkinen, Häkkinen, or Räikkönen?
