I always preferred women with a bit of meat on their bones...
I guess that's because I'm a fat fucker LOL
A Gentleman never tells.
I like fat chicks to because that's all I can get lol (yep and a fat fucker also)
mate of mine has had similar issues with his BO ..
Dealer fixed it under warranty but the issue still happened they fixed it again 800ks later did it again
after a phone call to HD head office he got a new donk fitted under warranty.. that now has 8tho ks on it and running like a dream.
hope it gets sorted asap mate..
Yeah thanks, this is now 2nd rebuild of top end (original crank) and when it happened again after 400klm I was just told to wait and see if the 1,000klm service fixed it. Can you believe they think changing the oil is going to solve the problem? Anyway, done the 1,000klm service and doing a 650klm trip on the weekend which will take it to around 900klm since service so we will see what happens.
As you say, it is all being done under warranty but still a bloody inconvenience.
Still sad news I'm afraid Choco,
You would have seen that last post was 9th November and the ride that weekend had the expected outcome - oil everywhere. The good news out of that is that after getting a legal eye to modify my email to HD Sydney they finally agreed to replace the bike, even getting an upgrade to an MY18 but so far I have been another 3 weeks off the road waiting for the change over to happen. Not sure where this puts me in the warranty side of things but being an MY18 I am going to be pushing for a fresh warranty to start from when I pick up the bike. We'll see what happens - hopefully this week at last.
As for not all M8's being affected, they did admit to having seen a few but recon mine is the worst they have seen - lucky me.
Hope this ends up well for you and no more trouble fingers crossed. Harley should of replaced the bike straight away who wants to pay over $30000 plus for a brand new bike and then have the motor pulled apart and rebuilt. Ok great news for you getting a new bike and hope you have many trouble free years of riding cheers.
So weird, I absolutly hammer mine, and even more so with the stage 2 motor in it now, and not a hint of problems, 15,000 Km's now and love it.
Yeah really giving me the shits being without a bike for so long (over 9 weeks). It is HD Australia I have been dealing with, we move around a lot so I don't really have a Dealer as such. Bike was purchased from Gold Coast Harley while we were at the QLD rally, but has been worked on by Alice Springs, Gladstone and Sunshine Coast since. Currently in pieces in Sunshine Coast. I think it is really piss poor that HD Aus can't even organize a loan bike. The bike is a total lemon, the cylinders were replaced by Gladstone but when Sunshine Coast told me they were waiting on parts to arrive they said it was the rear cylinder they were waiting on - only 1,000 klm since it was replaced before. Half of the issues I raised with HD Aus have never been mentioned since, they just totally ignore the problems.
