What did you do to Your Tri-Glide Today?

Installed a new Klockwerks windshield in mine and took the touring width Freedom Shield off. so much cooler temperature wise now. Also removed the fairing pouches just to see what it looked like. I may put them back on. Didn't realize how much I use them until I took them off.
 
I still don’t have a drop of anything in my catch can yet. 500 miles or so.
From what I said understand every bike varies . I had neglected it for a couple oil changes so it had a gooey mess in it . I also ride hard n fast and a lot of interstate high speed miles so if hot stuff is coming out I don’t want it in my intake .
 
Today - 3 new tires - wore the front one out again and had a nail in a rear so I changed all three . Also replaced front brake pads and had a 10k service done. Good to go for a bit now!!!!
 
You going with stockers in the rear?
I put stock back on the rear, I had 30 k and 3 years in them , still lots of tread left but the insides of the grooves had started to get cracking in the rubber. My ESP tire n wheel covered one with the nail . The other I came out of pocket but did it along with 10k on my Prepaid maintenance plan so got it free install , part only . The front I did Metzler , giving that a try
 
Dealer visit.
Went to the dealership the other day. I was thinking my Compensator was making too much noise. The "tech" took it for a ride. Came back and said the Compensator was starting go bad, but was OK to drive for a while. ?? Also said my left muffler was loose. I got under it today and found the rubber cushion slide back. So I just slid it forward and it was no longer making any noise. Everything else was tight.

Curious if this was this a freebie or an HD($100)

You definitely don’t want that compensator to come apart in the primary, it will take out several other components!
 
My trunk push button was extremely loose and I was having a hard time getting the key in and out. Took it apart, the “U” retaining clip was too spread out, squeezed it back into position and reassembled it. “Voila”. Satisfaction… next re-torque my exhaust header nuts.. little more involved be cause I have to remove the chrome shields and the right radiator lower. Well not completely but enough to get to the header stud nut.
