Compression Releases Yes or No....
Last May I decided to go ahead & pull the trigger on the 107 Big Bore upgrade on my 08 RoadGlide, I ended up doing cam, new screaming eagle jugs (polished & ported of course) bigger valves, PV-1 & autotune. No compression release though as I thought I could save some coin. Well after installing a new starter, compensator in the first year I figured the problem was gone.
Wouldn't you know it 2 weeks ago after fueling up I went to start her up (hot start) and ended up taking the starter clutch out & had to have it towed to the shop. I did get a new starter under warranty from Drag Specialties, but ended up spending a lot more coin having the CR's put in now then if I'd have not been so cheap when I had the original work done. Funny thing is I knew I should have had them done when I was doing the stage III on it. Oh well live & learn, just had to share my stupidity with someone.
