Question about 2008 Ridley Auto Glide Chopper
I went for a trip through our North Cascade Loop this weekend and when I hit the top elevations for both passes we went over
My top speed was 53 mph. I live at 130 feet above sea level and the passes we went over were around 5400 and 4000 feet. The other riders figured it was the carb. I agreed but wonder if this is just the way it is going to be for my 2006 Ridley on the passes or is there something that can be done so I get normal performance and speeds all the time no matter the elevation? Once again the Ridley was the center of attention at every stop we made even with my fellow riders who were on BMW's and Harley's. I forgot my chicken feed but I never get tired of talking about my Ridley (your Ridley). Prior to this ride of 400 miles 90 miles was my longest round trip. I feel like a changed person. I'm the guy with MS and when I got home I had this calm yet confident feeling that I didn't have when I left. My Harley riding friend with 30+ years of riding did not need an explanation when I talked to him this afternoon. I was pretty sore this morning but went for a long walk to pick up my youngest at school, sort of similar to the light workouts on Sunday's following college football games some 24 year ago, and I feel just fine this evening. I must again convey my heart felt thanks to the Ridley family for making this bike and providing the opportunity for those of us who now ride, that may never have had it, had it not been for the Ridley Auto-Glide.,As with all engines with carburetors, you pick an altitude and tune the carb. If you will be at higher elevations more than lower you could jet the carburetor for better high altitude performance. Fuel injected engines have a computer that adjusts fuel flow as the altitude changes.,,,
