Now, now, Hippo. You're not the sort of guy who starts rumors. That article has caused a bunch of smoke around the Internet and I didn't want to start it here. Until the smoke clear, everything is just supposition.
I guess you didn't editorialize with your post. Just asked a question, which is pretty legit.
I don't have any answers yet. Will be inquiring at a local dealership tomorrow when I'm there for an event.
The official letter to the dealers listed 155 engines as being recalled to be replaced. My bike is one of the 155. The new engine has arrived and is at the dealer. The bike goes to the shop on Tuesday.
The dealer says the swap is a complete engine/trans assembly complete with fuel system. They will disconnect wiring harness, drop the engine, put the new one in and send it home. The whole job will take one to two days to complete.
The worst part is that I crossed the 500 mile break-in mark last week, now I have to do it all again....
Thanks for the update. 'sorry you have to break-in the bike again. But think of it as having a virgin, one more time! That should bring a smile to your face. I know I smiled when I wrote it. LOL
Welcome to the H/D Forum, Kevin. Thanks for joining us. There are a great group of people here. During the next few days, there may be some irratation while the server change over gets complete. And a few books get worked out of the system. Bear with us. Things will be running fine in a couple of days.
