Today sucked

Was leaving work today and stopped to get gas fired the bike up and i heard a lifter rattle just slightly,looked at my pressure gauge and its at zero rev it to 2000 and i get 5 lbs,good news is that the HD shop that has the best rep in town is right across the street,so that is were i left my bike today,bummer.More than likely the by pass valve is stuck i hope that's all that's wrong.Was just looking at some 10 to 1 pistons so thats on hold till i hear from them.At least it isnt full blown riding season yet.

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.

Sorry to hear your news.
Hopefully it's something that can be fixed quickly.
Is your bike still under warranty?
My bike will be in the shop this Saturday for it's third primary fix. Good Luck Road Brother.

I hate when that happens. Too bad you didn't have ESP. Good luck.

That sound odd for a fairly new bike how many miles on her, how often do you change the oil and may I ask what kind of oil do you run? just trying to wrap my head around your problem.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

29,000 miles I run Lucas 20 50 full syn and HD filters,change every 4 to 5 k.Got a call from the service manager today said that last night at closing they were putting the bikes up so he went to push mine in and decided to start it first,said as soon as he thumb the button straight up to 32 lbs at cold idle(this is normal) so he said he let it run till it went to hot idle held at 7 lbs,said it may have gotten a small piece of dirt around the check valve,not sure where it came from,so they are going to keep it for a few days a ride it every day to see what happens.
