    Thanks, just as I thought. Mine was the same cleaner which they tried to tell me was the issue. That was before the second re-build and Harley Australia finally replacing the whole bike with an MY18.
    Just goes to show, you don't need to cop the BS from dealerships if you know it ain't right.

    Well its now nearing 5 weeks and still no new engine, dealer believes they will get it tomorrow, the bike has been off the road for over 7 weeks now.
    Harley Davidson needs to re evaluate its balance between giving their share holders a bigger return and giving their customers a product that is fit to do what it is claimed to do.
    A strong brand name will keep them going for a while, but if they keep providing sub standard product, their sales will certainly take a nosedive, social media is very powerful today. 
    Finally got my Road King back with a new motor fitted, picked it up last Friday, took it down to our monthly HOG BBQ on saturday, all happy until someone asked about the oil under my bike, they sliced the orting seal on the starter motor putting it back in, all fixed now. Has anyone noticed any difference with the replacement motors, this one has more vibration and definitely has a deeper exhaust note.

    When they gave me the MY18 I noticed a deeper note in the exhaust (my old system swapped over from the MY17) but thought that was due to Heavy Breather which they gave me. Sweet deal, they wouldn't give me the new bike unless I took it with the Heavy Breather.
    Can't say I noticed any vibration though.

    I have a M8 107 Heritage, love the bike. I used to ride a 2013 Heritage with the 110" stage 3 kit in it, and unless you ride hard it was a bit of a pig.
    The new bike is smooth plenty of power and handle in the twisty like no other model before except dyna's.
    This  week I am getting a stage 2 TQ installed. then I will post the results.

    My 2018 107 breakout with the Se 447 cams.  Hopefully you get the dsame or better depending on your air intake and exhaust.

    The lads at Harbour City HD Gladstone built my 120cube m8 and all I can say is exactly what I wanted big low down torque, run in tune went around 129hp , 135ft lb.
    Perfect street combo, 100kmh at 2200rpm. 
    Hit that throttle and will have no problems overtaking anything quickly on the high way.

    Hell yeah, that sounds like fun.  What did it cost?
