Milwaukee 8 engine problem

My 17 RGS with a stage 3 kit installed by the dealer at 75 miles has a loud noise coming from the timing area. I took the bike in Saturday I'm sure Ill hear something beginning of the week. bike has less than 5k on it.
its been serviced exclusively by the dealer as well as its first service performed by dealer.

Hate to be the one to say it.

Oil Sumping, most likely your oil pump is toast.

MoCo is having a serious problem and is on their third version.

Good thing is, your bike is still under warranty.


Good Luck!

I took it in a couple months ago saying there was an unusual noise coming from timing cover they said its normal for them to be noisy especially with a stage 3...

I told him if it needs a new case were making her a 117..

I've read in other places they are on their 4th. This is quite disappointing.

When my ESP is up I will decide whether I will keep or trade off my Harleys. So far so good on both. 12,000 on the '16 and 5000 on the '17. Considering my health issues this past year, and working from home, I'm pretty happy with the mileage.
