TC88 -- Too Many Questions...

Hippo or others...

Could I impose on the more knowledgeable folks out there with some basic questions? I was only looking for ballpark answers here, and don't mean to pin anybody down. I just wanted to get a general idea, an average.

1) What's the average life span of a properly maintained (stock) TC88?
2) What usually fails first?
3) Can the top-end just be rebuilt (assuming it fails first)?
4) Is the bottom end pretty strong on a stock TC88?

5) What's the average life span of a properly maintained 95-incher (all other parts being stock)?

6) What is too high a temperature for H-D dinosaur oil?
7) What's the minimum temperature dinosaur oil should get too (I run an oil cooler w/o a thermostat)?

8) Is it worth it to replace the stock chain cam-drive with a gear-driven unit in the TC88's?

9) What's an average lifespan for the 5-speed tranny?

9) What's the average lifespan of a stock (drive) belt?

My whole life I've had friends that rode Harley's, and my '02 FLHTC-I is my first. All input is appreciated, very much. Just trying to learn...

Thanks in advance for taking the time to help educate a dummie.

Hippo, and others...

Thanks, thanks for taking the time here.

Much appreciated...

I used to be a wrench 23-yrs ago, with a smog lic, etc. But I have a bike lift, and full tools, now I just need to learn...that will take some time.

Thanks again...
