I have the billet sucker on my SG. Just replace the studs (if that is what is wrong with yours). Should be fine. I made spare studs in case it happens again.....

My backing plate is broke. The ears that bolts to the rear head is broke.

I'll have to get a new backing plate. I'll put it on the list of priorities. Maybe some place near the top.

It's not just the Big Suckers that have this problem. All air cleaners including the SE can have this happen. You have to use plenty of lock tight, torque the studs correctly and check it every oil change at a minimum. When I bought my Street Glide(used) I found mine loose and it had ruined the mounting holes in the throttle body, I had to pick up a used throttle body to replace mine. Twin cam A engines have a lot of vibration that we don't feel but every bolt on the engine itself does.

Now you have me scared. My BS-2 has been on for over 20,000 miles and I never had a problem with it on my FXDX. Maybe because of all the money I've dumped into the engine it runs smoother and has less vibration. If this ever fvcks up I might get a Forcewinder type. Jeez, I wish I hadn't read this thread. One more thing to worry about.
