    This is a genuine bargain, only 7 months old but only ridden half that time.
    Lots of money spent and a real pleasure to ride. This bike is loaded with features;
    Stage 1 air cleaner and race tuner kit installed so it breathes better.
    Stage 2 cam installed for that extra Torque and a distinctive lumpy sound.
    Vance and Hines headers with Screaming Eagle Street Cannons for performance and tone.
    Tour Pack (Top Box) to give your passenger armchair comfort and you can also store 2 helmets inside when you have stopped instead of carrying them with you.
    This bike will spray oil over the engine pipes, because you love polishing the chrome; it will spray oil over your pillions right shin to keep them busy in the laundry and it will also coat the front of the pannier with oil as well.
    If you are real lucky, it will even throw oil out of the oil cooler right into the path of you rear wheel to give you that little bit of extra excitement in your ride.
    On a cool day, it will overheat on just a short ride so it idles like a chaff cutter; this gives it a real cool sound that turns heads wherever you pull up.
    New cylinders, pistons and rings fitted; just to give the mechanics some practice it seems. In fact, they needed a bit of extra practice so this has been done twice, they have even machined the heads.
    All this and more, with Harley Australia giving it a clean bill of health saying everything is the way it is supposed to be.
    I’ll be real sad to see this bike go, so get in quick before I change my mind. Price is definitely not negotiable as this bike has too many great features as you can see.

    This is also advertised elsewhere so jump in quick.

    Good luck.

     You may have gathered from the ad (if you read all of it) that I am not expecting to sell it. I am just putting out there what a great piece of engineering this machine is.

     This thing was off the road 3 weeks the first time to do the cylinders, it's now been off the road 5 weeks and they don't expect the parts for another 8 days. Iv'e just had enough of the B/S, not even a loan bike for my troubles.

    fark mate, hate to hear these stories. 

    As to the loan bike, insist on one if they haven't offered - just be aware of the insurance excess.

    Hope you get it sorted this time around, and can enjoy the bike, not stress about the next issue.

    Best of luck

     It was HD Sydney that first mentioned a loan bike but they were looking into organizing one over 2 weeks ago. If they can't organize one in 2 weeks what hope has anyone got.

    Mine has 14,000 hard km's on it now with virtually the same mods. Hasn't had one issue (touch wood) Hope it is sorted soon, as I reckon this is the best bike I have owned.

     Totally agree with comment about great bike but this one has been off the road far too long. This episode is 5 weeks today with another 8 days at least waiting for parts (which had already been replaced once - go figure). The really anoying part is the flip flop between "nothing wrong" and " we need to replace XXX".

    With a new bike having major problems you'd be within your consumer rights to demand a refund.

     Yeah, it seems to be a quirky thing that shows up on a few bikes but not all. The crazy thing is that one workshop I spoke to said they had fixed the problem but they didn't know which part of the works they did was responsible for the fix. Apparently they just about replaced everything.

     Sadly we are yet to pass any lemon law. You may well have a case for ACL but as the dealer is making an attempt to recify the issue its going to be a toughie.

     The dealership is not the problem, they have to get everything approved by HD Aus. It is them that have been dragging the chain and not even addressing the issues I have raised with them.

    Irrespective of any specific automotive lemon law I reckon ACL applies here. Given its a major engine issue the product does not meet its intended purpose. Whilst the dealer might be trying to fix it I'd be demanding a new bike or a refund after waiting this long on repeated attempted repairs on such a major issue for a brand new bike. Auto dealers don't like it but my father demanded and got a new car in similar circumstances. It was either gonna be that or a refund. But he also had a large fleet of the same vehicles that he used as leverage.


    It would be far more costly and damaging to the brand if this story went out on mainstream media as opposed to replacing or refunding the bike
