    An M8 is to Harleys what masturbation is to sex. Sure it gets the job done and you're shamefully crying afterwards, but you know there's a better way to experience it

     seem to know a lot about the subject steelo ????

     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.

    This is a very sad story. Brand new bikes should not leak oil, they should not have to be rebuilt they are brand new not 20 years old, customers should not have to wait weeks and weeks to ride a brand new bike because it's in a workshop getting repaired, should I go on. I have read on a few other forums about this problem yes I know it's not happening on all the new M8's but it is happening when it shouldn't be. I don't know what Harley is going to do but if they don't fix this problem loyal Harley customers will start looking elsewhere at different brands. Hope this story has a happy ending it's just one of many I have read about.

     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.

    I bet they try and give you a used Demo bike, warranty would have started when they first
    registered it.

     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.

    Sad to hear you are being treated so badly by your dealer. I got the run around with my last bike, I got the shits and rang HD Australia and spoke to the warrenty bloke and my problems were sorted quick smart by the dealer,but my problems were not as major as yours. Best of luck to you.
    Have your parts arrived yet?

     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.

    Great sense of humour with the ad. Conveys your frustration perfectly well. 
    What are the chances of getting two faulty rear cylinders? Either the cylinders are faulty manufactured , or the the engine design is, or the workshop stuffed up.
    What did Gladstone say?
    Hang in there, and don't hold any false hopes on the benevolence of the HD Aust.

    Hope he did .. I know myself i would have ZERO paitence with the dealer or the manugfacturer , if i paid out 30 grand plus , and it was un usable , there would be a dozen complaints , and letters from lawyers flying every where .  Remember about 10 years ago , bought a bike ,  told them on the first service the back brakes were hot    and fooked ,  picked it up , they said the pads needed replacing  because they were warped , , Then the argument they wanted to charge me for them , walked away with no charge , rode less than 5 klm then went back and told them NOW you can really fix them , the calipers are fooked , , replace them ,,, little bit of an argument , so i rode off , went to another store owned by the same mob , and told them my problem with the brakes , , got  told the calipers were fooked and given a quote to fix , was'nt cheap either ,  armed with quote , back to original store , and told them   you either keep the bike here and fix it STRAIGHTAWAY , or i go to the police sttion show it them and get a defect notice put on  a bike a couple of weeks old , then i ask for my money back

    Phone calls flying all over , next thing a loan bike and it will be ready tomoro sir ...  Nope  , for me  i'd have no loyalty to shop or manufacturer  and DEMAND they replace the bike
