Bought a 04 FLHPI from my dealer last Feb. Have been trying different pipes and finally settled on the Rinehart True Dual setup. Took the bike to my dealer for a dyno and to get a leaky rocker cover gasket fixed.
Bucket of worms followed. They called me asking about the stiff clutch on that bike and I told them to check it out. Results:
1. clutch cable had become a ground due to ground at headlight loose.
2. some bearings in tranny coming apart with metal in the side cover.
3. tranny and engine had water in the fluids
4. primary fluid cooked and low, primary chain had about 1.25 inch of play.

Obviously the 1yr of service with our local Sheriff dept. was a hard one. Bike has no warranty. Augusta HD warrantied it anyway. Awesome. Dynoed the girl and got more HP and TQ on a hotter day than they did with the Wild Pig slipons. They spent 3 days on my bike and all i payed for was the dyno and leaky gasket. Met up with mechanics at the local watering hole and saw to it that my mechanics money was no good that night and probably a couple more.

Good dealer here in Augusta. I am happy.:clap:
