Anyhow back to the subject, I thought the hydraulic system was a pretty good fix for those who don't have the crank tolerance.
YIKES......Did I write that??
I like your sense of humor R K Cole, but damn man, that aint what I meant to say...... or "share....."
On a serious note, I know profits are important, we almost lost Harley Davidson's in the 70's???? I think.... when the MOCO was bought by AMC.......
Anyway, MOCO needs to make money, gotta feed the monkey man, but INDONESIA???? WTF do Indonesians know about the heritage and history of a Harley, or the MOCO itself. I like the post about MOCO changing the tolerance on crankshaft runout due to the FACT that the firm they were hiring to produce them couldn't make them to the previous specification for the $$$ that the MOCO wants to pay for the part.
I guess I just don't see how it all fits together. Why does a company that only exists because of the Spirit and Heart that Americans created in it, want to take good paying jobs away form those same Americans so that the shareholders can get bigger dividend checks????
How are we expected to buy their OVERPRICED products (t-shirts, chrome pretty's for bezels, parts to keep our poorly built dreams running, etc.....) if we have no JOBS to make the MONEY they wish to extract from us????
I apologize, this entire post is BS. I am preaching to the choir and this aint the place...............but I can't bring myself to delete it, if we continue to stay silent, we continue to support the system. The "Status Quo" is short for "The Mess We're In" and I for one am willing to be a bit annoying on this forum to try and piss a few of you off so that you will DEMAND change in some small way.
I am done.
Anyone know anything about a 2011 Cam Plate Conversion Kit that will allow me to change my spring tensioners to Hydraulic tensioners? I am disabled ex-military and would love to "go gears," but I am hoping the conversion is a bit cheaper???
Anybody know of the kit I'm talking about? I saw a post on it but I cannot seem to find it and I do search before I ask......
I love the forum, please don't kick me off for ranting a bit......I need the knowledge on here!
Be Blessed and keep the shiney side UP...
