yeah that's a nice thought but i have about 3 thousand in parts for the crash damage and about 2 in motor parts waitin' until the weather turns to ****. in 70,000 miles on this bike and 3 years with the same dealer i'm gettin' it fixed there. mostly tryin' to find out if this is a do it yourself thing since all of my motor experience is with shovels but thanks for the suggestion.

Why not wait on the gear dive until you get your bike back from the dealer with the new frame and other repairs. Then, uisng the good info available here and also on Mr. Harley Hog's website, do the gear drive yourself.

The vendors on this site also have excellent deals on gear drive units and camshafts. You would need some tools but those can be rented or purchased.

Good luck.

i guess i figured it would be easier to do while everything was apart since all the motor stuff is sittin' in my spare bedroom and i couldnt see pullin the exhaust and cam cover twice when it could all be done at one time. i'll check out the info on that web site and maybe get a second cam plate so it's ready to go in in place of the old setup. thanks

Well if you got experience working on shovels you are going to love working in the cam chest of a twin cam. You don't have to wrassle with the lifters and lifter blocks either. It's all modular in there, camplate w/cams, oil pump. Once you get all the chains and tensioners gone and the gears on its a piece of cake, just line up the dots and torque everything down.
