Do I have to wear my Uggs while doing the oil change? With a pumpkin Spiced Latte nearby for refreshment while it drains?

And cinnamon potpourri in the area, yes.

Read the reviews and people reported cooler temps and and extra 10HP on the butt dyno, but was more curious about it in a real world, real trial type scenario.

Thank you kindly.
I can't answer your question, but I have one for you.......

Didya get the breather blowby problem solved???????

I ended up putting an external breather on mine.

Why?

All that head breathin' oil blowin' into the combustion chambers caused my manual compression releases a bit of woe. Didn't have drippy air cleaner, tho. Just gummy MCRs.

More better now that the head breathin' oil gets deposited in a thimble sized catch can.......

Nope...still have the oil dripping out of the air cleaner onto the cam chest...all over the side of the bike depending on the runs I do for the day. Talked with Warren, have a game plan. In the end...they almost all do that.

I've never used RP, but I read in a thread on the interwebs that in a hot motor it cooks into a thick sludge.

heared that 3rd hand in the land of fake speech, so take it for what it's worth.

I'm kind of sold on the Castrol v-twin stuff myself

Noticed something getting flung up on side of my seat at one stop on the trip home.


Looked closer at what it was, OMG! oil drooling outa my air cleaner cover.

That was at a rest stop, after fueling up I pulled off into a parking space with a handful of windshield paper towels, got out the handy dandy HD switch blade "tool kit" thingy to pull off air cleaner cover.

WTF? No 5/16" hex wrench on it! WTF? Good is it?

Dig deeper into saddlebags pulled out set of ball tip hex wrenches, wiped out housing of excess oil and has been fine since. Maybe if dump hose went a bit deeper into throttle body?


Guess I'll watch / clean it more often...

Best way for MoCo to solve the excessively oiled air filter is to have the breather dump hoses inboard of the throttle body butterfly.

'Til then, tho, the right side of a lot of Harleys will continue to be a dust magnet.......
