  • Hello from a new guy

    Hello everyone.
    I'm new to the forum, but not new to Roadstars.
    I had a 1999 Roadstar Silverado that I installed a 2006 1700 engine (2003 - 2019). Then I had a 2014 Roadstar (2016 - 2019). I currently have a 2008 Roadstar Silverado S.
    I miss the 99 and regret selling the 2014.
    I'm currently personalizing my 2008 by installing a Tsukayu fairing and Jumbo Strong Bags, along with a Pacific Coast Star Monster Pro exhaust pipe that is an additional 17" long and ends even with the tip of the rear fender.

    My 99 was pumpless with an HSR 42 carb. The engine looked great without the pump cover blocking the view of the jugs. I would like the same look on my 2008, so I have a question; has a anyone relocated the fuel pressure regulator up under the tank and ditched the cover? If so, how did you do it


    Thanks,
    Slugger


    If it ain't broken, fix it til it is.

                          Slugger, I shortened the bracket, kept the larger thing that has the larger hose to it and tucked the smaller electronic item under the tank with a wire tie. Then attached a porcelain handle just for fun. The round chrome item is a hole plug from the hardware store and the vertical chrome item is the end of a toilet roll rod. Both were merely to cover the black valve and add bling. I tell folks it’s my espresso maker.

                                Freedom headers and freedom mufflers.

                                  Yes. The Chrome ones they sell won't fit my starter.

                                      Hello Shores, Thank you very much for posting your pictures, it looks great. I like the white handle, it sort of makes it look like a beer tap or something.
                                      Also, the beer can on the starter is awesome!
                                      Now you've really kickstarted my brain.
                                      Thanks again, I appreciate your input.
