Thanks for the welcome. I was riding my bike yesterday trying to record the data on the screamin eagle tuner when the bike started losing power,so as Im pulling over it starts making loud knocking noise's, as I go to shut the bike down I hear a loud backfire and clouds of white smoke starts pouring out of my exhaust. I literally thought the bike was on fire.

I have about 3000 miles on my M8 Road King. No issues, but I am leaving it all stock as far as performance goes.

Hope you get it resolved and welcome to the Road Glide Forum. Shame it took this event for you to find us.

What the..."blew up" sounds very dramatic, Weezer. It would be nice to hear the specifics later on. I've read at HarleyTechTalk about a couple of oil-pump failures etc. on the Milwaukee-Eight. One of them a SE stage III kit (117ci).
What RG model and engine type is yours? Do you have the Twin-Cooled engine?

Oh, and welcome!
