  4. Amsoil vs Lucas

    V-Twin Forum News
    Most replies in oil threads seem to be either conjecture or criticism.In the big scheme of things it probably doesn't matter which oil you use.Good luck!

  7. Clutch stays engaged

    Harley-Davidson FXR
    I would disassemble the clutch, clean the steel and friction plates, then check for overheating and warpage of the plates.Then go from there.
  8. After market Tensioners

    Twin-Cam Engine
    Yes. Cheap insurance. Red Loctite only on the sprocket bolts.
  9. Ultima gone to all 3 piece cranks?

    Evolution Engine
    The most important thing with a three piece crank that is manufactured properly is to not introduce sudden and large stresses to them.The largest of which is locking up the rear brake with the clutch engaged.Lots of reciprocating mass concentrated on one pin between the flywheels. I believe that...
  10. Wasted Spark Ignition Problem

    Not sure, but maybe they are 2 separate coils in one coil body . You could always get a service manual. Good luck!
  11. Wasted Spark Ignition Problem

    Electrical, Wiring and Lighting
    I'm not sure I understand the coil and wire arrangement you described......Japanese 4 cylinders (Kawasaki) typically use one coil to fire cylinders 1 and 4 and the other fires cylinders 2 and 3. One cylinder on the same coil is on the compression stroke the other cylinder is on the exhaust stroke.

  15. 113 Ultima making lifter or pushrod noise

    Evolution Engine
    Looks like you may have a small crack at the bottom also.Considering the case damage and mixed lifter brands the engine has a very sketchy past.It appears to me that the previous owner had it patched up and unloaded it before they had more troubles from it.
  16. Front cylinder running lean on my 2000 S&S 113

    Choppers and Customs
    Yes,as tall terry said in his previous post. A rich condition can lead to unburnt fuel in the pipe where it can continue to burn, heating up the pipe, and causing blueing.

  18. Front cylinder running lean on my 2000 S&S 113

    Choppers and Customs
    If you have the sparkplugs labeled correctly, your front is running richer than the rear.
  19. 113 Ultima making lifter or pushrod noise

    Evolution Engine
    Trash the lifters since they have been riding on that cam and you have a possible lifter bleed down problem anyway.I would flush the oil tank before putting it back together.
  20. 113 Ultima making lifter or pushrod noise

    Evolution Engine
    I would recommend that you remove and inspect the lifters and since they are out just go ahead and replace them.Topline/Hylift Johnson or S&S would be a good choice.
