    Maybe I am. I searched sumping. Got 1 hit for the M8. Maybe the OP did the same and therefore was perfectly justified to ask his question. Maybe that’s an issue with the search function. Maybe it’s a little precious to cane folks for asking fn questions about a Harley on a fn Harley website.

    I would think one would put in “M8 sumping” 
    Guess it’s easier just to ask the question for the 20 time rather then stop and think for a second hey

    Lol. You said it yourself.....”don't think the poster even used the search engine because its fucken impossible not to get hits with the word sumping .”.

    So I did what you said. I used the word sumping. Gives 1 hit for the M8. Guess it’s easier to be an asshat than answer a question.

    I think Adam’s question was legit, it’s a forum you fucking headless pricks, :) play nicely and be helpful. 
    Early in I directed Adam to search M8 sumping and hopefully like me, but evidently not everyone, he found 5 threads,
    HD M8 Sumping
    M8 issues
    M8 owners thread
    M8 stage 1 oil issue
    This M8 oil thing
    The thing is, you gotta be prepared to dig in and read, especially when your thinking of spending $$,$$$ ie in the M8 owners thread all’s good till page 5 when oil issues arise. By page 18 I think member JR888 has enjoyed a couple of engine rebuilds and JamesJ with his 117 Stage 4 has received a whole new bike replacement.
    So yeah it’s well documented, but not all members know where to look and reading some of the reactions it’s no wonder we have so many lurkers, sorry Guests.

    WTF, VW trike? you’re one sick puppy Oldfarter.
    Hope it’s not a communicable disease. 
    I sometimes visit Mandurah.
    Hate to catch it.

    Haha....

    As much as I like HD, I can't get away from them trying to fix the sumping and fluid migration problems for 2+ years now and they STILL have some US dealers saying "Huh? What sumping" - either ignorant or lying, either way I don't wanna deal with them.

    All i wan to do is ride, not tinker and keep getting repairs and parts-swapped under warranty - and, be honest, a VW trike is pretty bulletproof and piss eay to fix at any mechanic (you don't need specialised motorcycle mech).

    Another one I saw was a turbo-d 1.6 l Ford engine, 220 newton torque (that's 70 more than the Freewheeler), foot boards, discs all round..

    I got an email from the Panther Trike guy - those trikes I showed are about $27 000 + GST (so about 30k on road) - FFS, that's 15k less than the Freewheeler!
    $15 k saved covers a lot of "I preferred a Harley" issues.
    If I add all my extras (2300cc engine, long range tanks, etc, it comes to about $40k on road. Still $5k less than the Freewheeler, and little danger of fluid migration and sumping popping up 500km from home.

    Oz is not like UK/Europe/USA (as you well know) - we can go 300+ km without even seeing a fuel stop let alone a mechanic!
    Reliability is the key... plus, I'm happy with that look.

    *reaches out*
    *touches Ratbob on the arm*
    "Now you got VW trike cooties!!"
    "runs off giggling like a kid*
    --- Shit, I gotta put the brandy down

    When I get back, look around when you're in Mandurah, look for a trike, we'll have a beer (if you can stand being seen dead with something that'll out pull your Harley, LOL)
    Jeeze mate, hope those cooties haven’t gone airborne! 
    Yeah, be good to have a beer with you in Mandurah, long as the trikes not in the bar. I’ll drop a pm.
    Anyway, if you want reliable riding there’s plenty of quality low k twin cams out there.
    Cheers.
