EVO 1340 / Re: Build progress and pushrod question

No, you don't run the hose to the backing plate. Plug the hole in the plate (make sure whatever you use doesn't come loose and get sucked into the carb!). I used a bolt and two nuts, red loctite.
Run the two hoses down around the bottom of the carb, tee them together, extend a single hose to the ground.
This keeps the carb from sucking the oil mist from the motor into the carb and getting it gunked up, and helps keep carbon from building up on the pistons.
Do a search here, there are a bunch of threads on how to do it. People also use catch cans to collect the water and oil blow-by.
:up: that's kinda how I did the Sporty, but instead of teeing i connected one of those breather filters under the carb conencted in the middle, but the same idea - the Springer I did something like what you suggest works well

Thanks, I thought about joining the 2 breather hoses with a breather filler sitting just below the carb - but then I thought that oil may drop on the motor?

Looking for comments on the two. Will there be any big difference on a 140+hp build?

Pretty sure dealerships lied to the factory for years, to get warranty claims through for their customers. Loss of franchise was a worse case scenario, if they get caught. Most warranty clerks felt about the rules, the same way they felt about running 75 in a 70 zone- prolly not gonna get caught (and everybody else is doing it) so it's OK...


Back on topic- check with the ESP company to see if the new kit will be covered, because ESP usually only covers legal mods added during the first 60 days of ownership.

I paid an additional $125 to ESP for screamin eagle parts coverage. It damn well better be covered!

...After the EPA spanked HD a few years back HD is not very forgiving.

I still maintain that HD paid to get thrown into the briar patch.

That wouldn't surprise me.

I found it odd that you could buy a vehicle, strip off and the EPA required parts and HD would still warranty it.

I'd think the mufflers could/would void it.

I don't disagree, but the dealer that sold me the bike installed the mufflers. When I asked "Is this going to void my warranty" they said "As long as you use an HD tuner, your warranty is valid" so I have the street tuner and smart tune pro on my bike.

Your dealer will let it slide, but if you have a breakdown on the road and run it into a different dealer all bets are off. Bad part is a second dealer sees mufflers that are not approved and you can "flag" your motorcycle in the system and kill your warranty everywhere. If the local dealer tries to run a warranty through HD it most likely will be refused.
