124 Camplate Issue

This is a crate motor utilizing the SE Pro Cases. Just an FYI. Just a post on my 124. Noise in lower end ~ called S&S and they recommended Cycle-rama in Pinellas Park, FL. Took it to Wes. Diagnosis, the idler gear bushing was wearing and the noise I was hearing was the Idler gear moving around in the camplate. No loss of oil pressure or performance just alot of noise, and I could not isolate it. Wes called S&S they are replacing lifters, camplate, oilpump and the cam chest cover. Wes stated the 640 cams were fine. About 6k on the motor but the noise had gotten louder with time. I had pulled the crank position sensor and there was no metal so I felt like the cam chest was the most likely offender. Love the motors power, and hope moving forward for a bulletproof 124. I guess only time will tell.

Glad to see S&S is going to replace more than what's needed. What about the labor, is that going to be a little $$$$ ouch, or is S&S footing the cost, and how much down time are you looking at?

S&S absorbs the labor also ~ I'm assuming they will give Cycle-Rama a credit card number. Wes was slammed took him three weeks to diagnose/look at the bike. S&S shipped parts the same day ~ not sure when I'll get it back. Drivin me a little batty after all the drama I've dealt with in 56k....

The nice thing about S&S is it is one stop shopping ~ no supplier saying it is the others fault. S&S absorbs labor ~ engine has to be installed by an authorized S&S Dealer and warranted by an authorized S&S dealer. One year warranty unless you get S&S's throttle body and ECM (this ensures the break-in is done correclty), then they give you two years. I personally think this is the way to go on the motors since I don't think anybody else provides the warranty including parts & labor.

I'm glad that cooler heads prevailed (L's) when you were out shopping the other day...

Just read this thread. Seems like S&S is way to go, I have been researching their 111 touring engine, a little less aggressive and compression than the 124 and 131. Im coming out of some bad quality workmanship with Indies and either considering a new bike with a HD stage 4 (2 year warranty) or one of the S&S ones for my 07.

2012 CVO Roadglide Custom in Candy Cobalt/Twilight Blue, and it is almost completely stock. :0)))))
Mods are: Fullsac 1-3/4" baffles, Ohlins 6's (HD357), color matched chopped tour pack. Bluetooth stereo with Arc Audio amp and Focal speakers. On the bucket list; Ohlins drop in fork cartridges and the install of Fuel Moto catless 212 SS headpipe

I'd like to see some print about a HD Stage 4 with a 2 year warranty...

To me, S&S Crate Motor is the way to go... (one # to contact if any problems)

Easy! Call a dealer and they should tell you within 60 days of a new bike purchase any mods including a stage 4 (with SE parts) is covered for 2 years.
So if I havent fixed my issues with my recent build, I will either get a new bike (color availability sux for 2015) with a stage 4 or get an S&S crate motor. San Diego Customs Im being told can tweek an S&S and still get the S&S warranty.
