Man, it's real refreshing to see I'm not the only one that misses the point on occasion.   Just sayin'   :wink:

Night Dragon's are not a high grip tire at all,  feel isn't the best, mileage is ok.  They have a round profile and change line and lean angle easy,  too easy for me...I like a more planted stable feel.  One of my least favorite.

Hoss, I think Mike meant he wasn’t sure if his year (2008) was susceptible to the same issues as he has with his ECM connector when he vigorously washes his bike. ...... just sayin’.  :teeth:

You're probably right, why do I get involved where I have no business?
Sorry for being an idiot, Mike.

Probably a dumb question but, how would a person check the volume of a piston dome?  Would you make up a casting and then do it like you would a combustion chamber?

last engine i bought in dec. was a 103 #19578-13a picked up at pomona valley hd was $4492 that included 9.5% sales tax.
$5875 Canadian, (still a lot better than their installed quote from the dealer).

No kidding! If you can't get the engine R&R'd for another grand +/- something is wrong!

The run around has begun.  Harley Mother Ship wants to check it again in a few thousand miles and the clutch switch is on backorder.

I wonder if the sproket wobbles a bit on the crank and keeps flexing the bolt. We all know of the "quality" fit of that crank sprocket.
My thoughts too. Sloppy anti rotational spline fits between gear and cam also that could be torsionally loading it. Something is working the bolt for it to fail, otherwise it should just sit there, like forever and not break. I doubt torque value is the issue. The B motor cb sprockets were about that and they never fail.

I have heard this before... maybe on here. Something about the bolt head not sitting square against the surface, making it flex back & forth at high speed.

95 ft lbs at 2500, 115 at 3000.  I would be happy with that.

I have the Elite 4’s on my dyna.   I ride harder then most HD riders through turn and I take pride in how much I have ground off my foot pegs. I am happy with the Dulops so far.   They stick well in the turns, and they stay in place in the rain.  I have about 10-12k on them.  The rear is almost due for replacement.
I may get them again, but the Pirelli Night Dragons have interesting reviews on revzilla. I may give those a try next. 
I lie the dual compound tires.  Coming from aportbikes, the dual compound Michelen Pilot Power 2’s were awesome. 
Damn the long mileage.  I want a tire that will stick in the turns.
