SWV Bust

Sadly the bike gave up in Virginia!! Motor rapping like a bastard. Called the local dealer Winchester HD and they where there and picked me up in no time and got the bike right in but with the diagnosis being what it was rod bearings and crank most likely? The bike was put on a truck and hauled back home. So my season is sadly over. Need to save $$$$ for a good motor build!! Many thanks to the great folks at WINCHESTER HD in Virginia and to Dave!! The guy who brought me home.

What a bummer!! Did the dealer check the lifters?? If the roller bearing goes bad on the lifters or if the lifter collapse it will make noise that sounds like the crank is going out.

Hey Ken, sorry to read about your misfortune - kinda screws up your whole summer. Hopefully when they start digging into the problem further they find that the damage is less severe that they originally thought and they can get you back riding again in the not too distant future.
