Buying Concerns - 2000 Electra Glide Ultra

I'm considering buying a 2000 Electra Glide Ultra. Are there any special issues I should ask about? Any particular problems with this model year?

Any help would be appreciated.

I have had none with mine....the only thing I can think of is make sure it is not one of the early 2000 models with the "bad" cam bearings

Bought my 2000 last year and put on 10,000 miles with no problems.

The only concern I'd have is that the MOCO only used the MM injection system for a couple of years on the E-Glides. Down the road?????????

I've had absolutely ZERO issues with my 2000 FLHT! I have 35,000 miles on it and I couldn't be happier. Mine is carburated, don't know about the one you are looking at. My friend has a 99 FLHR, and he has had the engine disected three times....of course he rides it like he stole it too.

I would run the vin number through harleys website to check if the "bad bearings" are on the one you want to buy. Or find out if they have already been changed. The warranty was for only 5 years or 50K miles which every came first.

2000

I have a classic - zero problems. The cams are the biggest concern on the early models, as already noted. Beautiful bike - runs like a ......... harley

Enjoy!

2000 flh

Just for reference there are a fair number of parts that were installed on 2000 flh bikes that were only for that year. It it not likely to be a big deal but just keep it in mind.
