As the end user a person needs to decide if they want a warranty or a modified scooter. And if they choose to go with the modified ride, they should be aware of their audience when they talk about it. Especially with these 17 and newer scooters, since they are a item of enforcement. This situation is going to blow up, and the people who get snached up in it are going to point fingers at everyone they can.
Geez, don't you ever get tired of spouting the same lines to everyone that has a question, comment or observation about M8 warranties, aftermarket parts and PV Flashes? I swear you have it saved as a notepad file for a copy and paste. This is a user forum, sponsored by the advertisers who pay the site to run their advertisements. This isn't the Harley Davidson corporate website. I'll let the dealer take the sh*%t for whatever they are doing to make a sale or take care of the customer afterwards. As for me, if my gently modified '18 blows up tomorrow I can choose to have it repaired or sell it for scrap metal. Either way it's Nonya.

Don't know why you're upset by him stating this as he is just telling it like it is and he is saying it's up to YOU as to what you do with your bike. It's funny how many people do all kinds of mods to their bike and then whine when the warranty goes bye bye. (Not saying you are.)

How many people would do comparable performance mods to a new car and expect the warranty to stay in tact. Almost none.... If your dealer is going to take care of you then go with it but if you break down on the road another dealership may not be so forgiving and then your home dealership is not going to be able to keep hooking you up that way. Ride on! It's all good!

Let me get this straight. You fuk up and then want to bust my balls about giving you a straight answer.

Seriously if you were looking for some sympathy, then go grab a dictionary. Its in there, right between shit and syphilis.

RG & Thermo - please go back and read my post. I wasn't complaining about having warranty issues with my bike. In my post, I asked questions, made observations and relayed conversations. I've seen the rant posts from people around the web about HD denying their warranty claim after the owner decided of their own volition to do performance upgrades come hell or high water, whether compelled by some sneaky salesman or assured by the dealer's owner or service manager that everything would be cool if an issue popped up, or just because they were uneducated on the matter or said "screw it" I'm doing it anyway.

My main question remains unanswered............... Why do some dealers appear to connect the bike to their DT every visit, regardless of the reason, and others skip that step if it's not related to the power train. A practical example; a customer has a rear shock fail prematurely and the bike is still under the factory warranty period. Dealership A hooks up the DT and the bike's VIN is flagged because of the non-EPA compliant flash. Dealership B says; this is an issue with the shock, let's do this the other way, no need to hook up to the DT for a shock warranty claim.

I'm still wondering how anyone could read my post and think that I was complaining about the power train warranty being voided. Just because I asked the SM the question certainly doesn't mean I'm complaining about my so called "fuk up".

I have a pre programmed PV sitting here waiting to install. I 'm one of the fortunate ones with transfer issues so I held off and since I put a oil cooling fan which needs to be dealer flashed took it in to have that and document transfer. Now in another 1-200 miles I'll go back in for 2nd documentation before they will fix it . AFTER that I will install PV. I was just about to install it when something told me check the trans fluid after reading about many on boards. Sure as shit nothing on stick, filled it rode 150 mi nothing on stick.

Just got it back I will do the dance and let them have me on record.Already bought the fat rod too as insurance

If I ever have that issue that's the route I'm going. Looks like about a 100% success rate and everyone seems to be happy since he modified the design a little bit. It was getting cantankerous over there for a while

Did you buy directly from him? Happen to have his contact info handy?

My only question on this clutch pushrod fix....if the pressurized fluid is indeed moving around the pushrod into the other side, and this pushrod prevents that fluid transfer....what's happening to the pressurized fluid if it has nowhere to go? What becomes the weak link at that point? Pressure wins every single time, so I'm wondering what comes under stress in that case?

Edit: Completely skipped my mind that the transmission has it's own vent. So whether you vent it through the primary or use the larger diameter pushrod, I suppose the upside is that it keeps the majority of the fluid where it's supposed to be, even if it pukes. Interesting.

The primary is from what I've read is actually causing a vacuum and because the smaller rod has enough room for fluid to pass by its transferring . I think either the primary vent or rod would work. The rod is the simplest, I would do the vent myself but Harley won't sell me the kit they barely acknowledge it even exists.
