16 Road Glide Ultra Water Pump
I just rolled over 10,000 miles this weekend on my RGU during the Hot Springs Rally. Saturday morning my CEL and Temp lights came on after about 15 miles. Limped back home and ran through tests and no water pump.
Iíd heard there were problem with the ďwetheadsĒ and now I know first-hand. The Motor Company is well aware of the problems. The original pump has been discontinued and H-D has basically retro-fitted the new M8 water pump for the 14-16 wetheads.
Called my local dealer. Iíd heard H-D was helping out, not recalling, those with issues. Not here! I was quoted $350+ for the pump and and at least another $350 for install. So at least $700, prob $800, before itís done.
No thanks! I can install it. But Iím still pissed. Shouldnít be having to replace a water pump at 10,000 miles on anything. Much less a Harley. Now Iím beginning to understand some of the complaints Iíve been hearing about the new bikes. Waiting on parts to arrive.....
