Roy Martin: It would be nice if we could silence the negative morons that don't get it.
It's about tradition, having fun, just chilling out, and not smashing our
balls on a long ride until we turn into girls LOL. If you don't like Harley
Davidson, stay off of Harley channels. That's only common sense don't you
think? Harley is an American icon. Sure they require a bit of maintenance,
but it's worth it I think. I have had several Harleys, and never had any
trouble with them... except for an old Panhead I had. That one had a lot of
issues (then again it had 263K miles on it) . Currently I have a 2007
FatBoy that is fully customized. I have never had any trouble with it
(currently 60K miles on it). Also, I don't go onto all the Crotch Rocket
channels bad mouthing them. So why do you feel the need to do it here?
Stick to your own channels and the intelligent ones in our group will stick
to ours. It shows a huge lack of intelligence to run your mouth just to
annoy people. I do have to agree with one point though.... Who the hell
puts tampons in their breather!? LOL. There are better fixes for this
flathead59: I can't get the oil filter off on an 85 Electraglide,I don't want to damage
anything,any suggestions??? email@example.com
HDfueler: I dunno...I've met a lot more "Certified Harley Davidson Master Techs" that
didn't know jack than ones who do. Sometimes I wonder if they base it off
how many tats they have. This guys sounds knowledgeable enough, but it's
kinda like being the best cook at McDonald's...let's face it, these things
are akin to a tractor with handlebars-NOT exactly rocket science!! If your
HD mechanic doesn't know MACHINES in general, he's probably just
regurgitating info he's been fed.
CrudeDude: Slobbering tractors
Roger Moorhouse: Does oil "Slobbering" damage your bikes Engine?
sideshobob65: It's just how the old bikes were. Twin cams pretty much have this resolved.
We call this "sumping". Harley's have a dry sump oil system. V-rods don't
use a dry sump system.
DrJekyl30: OMG this is hilarious. I had no idea that Harley's were this bad. Stick a
tampon in your bike to keep it from spraying oil? Wow man Harley Davidson
never ceases to amaze me LOL.
CrudeDude: @AsphaltCowboyPacks Yeah, you can hear 'em "sound like crap" as they blow
by your two cylinder tractor.....
rick johnson: Hey Cheevous. My sister in law has a 2006 Harley Sporster 1200 it is
blowing oil through the air cleaner and out onto the exhaust just below and
back. I pulled of the air cleaner and it was full of oil and filthy. Can
this be remedied cheaply and easy?
Scott Davis: Harley's are supposed to leak oil mist from the heads, that's where the
engine breathes. Most Harley's leak oil and it is normal. The air intake is
supposed to suck up all the oil mist and the carb burns it up. In some
cases like mine with big compression kits and motor conversions the carb
can't burn it up fast enough so some leaks out of air filter. It is as
simple as re routing the oil mist. All engines breathe some are designed
differently. Don't let it scare you from Harley's mine is great.
Austyg: oil misting the back tire, eh? . . . great design . . . hmmpff hmpff . . .
CrudeDude: @AsphaltCowboyPacks Sure you do....... (snicker)
Rick Taylor: A couple maxi-pads inside the air breather of the Sporty and FLHS works
great. No more drips on the cross-over pipe. Got that tip long ago and
don't remember where. Change them out every oil change.
1964fleetwood: And whats with the freakin goatees? DIIIIIIIIICKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
cheevous: The Harley oil misting is an easy thing to fix. Run the misting from your
breather bolts into a catch can, breather filter, or run it directly to the
ground. it is only oil mist very little at a time but continuous. After
time it collects and sprays on your bike, pants, and everything else. Check
out my video on how to resolve oil misting. It is a very easy fix. For a
temporary fix get tampons and slide them in your airbox, it will soak up
the oil mist. Change as needed.
1964fleetwood: what crap! Just like the typical tattoo covered assholes who drive them.
CrudeDude: @AsphaltCowboyPacks Ass fault cowboy packs ...his boyfriend
Ulyssis North: freak harleys
Robert Ghaderi: This is why I don't throw out the fingers when passing anyone on a
sportbike. I've recently realized after purchasing my harley, that most
sportbike riders ride like assholes. Go ahead and "blow by" my harley,
you're the ones raising the fatality rate...
poppieslittlejodie: @AsphaltCowboyPacks To sit there and say that a Jap bike is not as
dependable as a Harley is simply a stupid thing to say. Oh yeah, you could
reference one or two instances of a Jap bike not being dependable, but that
is because of stupid owners; not the bike. In addition, my KZ will eat any
Harley that crosses its path. When you go to drag strip, there are a number
of bikes, but rarely is there a Harley. You will see a KZ, a GS, or a Busa,
and they are Harley killers; hands down.
cheevous: I have a 2006 Sportster. It was an 883 but we converted it with the Wesico
10:1 compression 1200 kit. I am running one bigger jet in the carbs, vance
and hines short shot pipes. Bike runs great and I have never had one
problem ever. Is it fast? it is fast for a sporty. Harley's were never
really about speed, it is about the cruise, style, sound, and fun. If you
want to go fast get a crotch rocket. I use to race rockets but now I am all
about cruising and being comfortable.
Scott Davis: It is a simple fix. Look at my two videos on how to correct oil slobbering
through your air filter. I have a solution with a stock air filter and
housing and an Arlen Ness Big Sucker stage 1 air kit. If you are going with
the stock setup very cheap, if you but a big sucker it will be around 130
bucks or so and you will need around 15 bucks in accessories. Check out my
videos on my channel.
beesdad: Sorry, tell me again (a fouth time) .. you're a 'Certified Harley Davidson
Master Technician' is that right? Might be simpler to just buy a decent
bike to start with.
