  1. need m50 advice please!

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I have logged 30k miles on my M50, mostly commuting. I have been 2up on a few 200 mile trips. It is great! It is geared low but under 70mph, that is not a problem. Outfitted right (bags, after-market seat, and a windshield), it should be perfect.
  2. Question about Stainless Steel Brake Lines and C50 Handlebars...

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I did the C50 bar swap. I am short as well and the bike now feels like it was made for me. There was not that much work involved. It took less than an hour. I did not replace any cables, but the rerouted throttle lines have rubbed the tank from slow maneuvers.
  3. M50 hard bags

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Leather-Lyke bags are great. Does require a blinker swap. Don't ask me how I know, but they will fit an 18 pack of bud light per side. The look is great and they are waterproof for the most part.
  4. Engine noise 'revisited'

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Money well spent! Not only did the shop give me a fair price on labor, but they also stayed under retail on parts (every little bit helps). I am more than pleased with the results. I have a bike that I love that has been torn down and gone through by trained professionals and now has new cam...
  5. Engine noise 'revisited'

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I thought about letting it die, but the previous owner dropped some serious cash on a bunch of extras. Heated Corbin seat, new grips, front and rear floorboards, windshield, highway bars, sissy bar, rear rack, and leather-lyke bags. I have made simple mods like swapping to the C50 handle bar and...
  6. Engine noise 'revisited'

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Well the friend-of-a-friend turned out to be too busy to help. My bike is currently at the only shop in my area that seemed to know more about my bike than I do. (Everett Powersports) currently has the motor out and cam-chain tensioners, cam chains, and new rings on order. All together, I am...
  7. What did you do to your M50 today?

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I decided to bite the bullet and let my local stealership give me a bid on a tear-down to find out what that flippin' noise is. Gonna take plenty of money to get it right. I hope it's only the cam chain adjusters, but it might be a good time for new rings while they're in there. '06 M50 daily...
  8. Engine noise 'revisited'

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    Thank you, everyone. I have decided to let a friend-of-a-friend who wrenches in his garage take a look and listen. I will only be out the cost of a few beers unless he thinks there is something more serious. My biggest thing is the sound I hear could only be metal on metal. I just picture...
  9. Engine noise 'revisited'

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I have lived with this ticking noise for about two years now. A year and a half ago I let one of my local stealerships work on it assuming it was a valve issue. Valves within specs. they tell me and blame the noise on a possible loose heat shield. Long story short... Picked up my bike from...
  10. Custom pipes done!

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I like the look, but I'm wondering how you plan to refill your oil?
  11. Buzzing sound at high speeds

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    I've started picking up on a high pitch buzz as well. I thought somehow my windshield, hand-guards, or crash bar covers had begun to whistle in the wind. Just a thought here.... Could it be the stepper motor INSIDE the speedo housing developing a squeal due to a bad bushing or bearing?
  12. K&N filter

    Marauder M50 Secret Hideaway
    re:K & N filter for M50 I'm sure you have found there are not that many parts available. You can make your own. I found an off-road K and N filter that fit inside the intake housing, cut and ground the OE filter off the mounting plate and siliconed the new filter in its place. As that was...
