I have always been a guy that would ride anything I could get my hands on. Usually a Honda or Yamaha. And almost always used. About four years ago I got the opportunity to purchase a Harley Roadster brand new. My first brand new vehicle ever. The first three years I owned it I didn’t have any other vehicle and rode it rain or shine and though three north Mississippi winters. When they delivered it to my house it only had seven miles on it. Now it is almost 55 thousand. I have put countless sets of tires on it and changed the oil fifteen or sixteen times. I liked the styling of the bike and I always heard the ego motor was kind of a workhorse so I decided to try It out. I have had to replace numerous parts and have had numerous things go wrong. But I guess that’s all part of it. I’m have had to replace wheel bearings twice, brake pads twice. My throttle cable snapped recently going down the highway. The base gaskets leak like crazy and oil comes up through the exposed head bolts on the outside of the jug. At 48 thousand miles I started to lose fuel economy and it began feeling sluggish. So I replaced the tappets, or cam followers. I forgot to unplug the battery and fried the fuel pump when I plugged it back in. The dealer had my bike for almost two months and couldn’t get a pump so I had to buy one third party and have it shipped there. Since they had it I figured I would get them to upgrade the intake and exhaust for me. They informed me that I had to purchase their tuner (screaming eagle) or it would void my extended warranty. So I followed their instruction and was very disappointed. The bike began running very lean it popped a lot and when trying to cruise with steady throttle it felt like it was starved of fuel. Only when you were really ripping through the gears did it behave properly. About eight hundred miles after this it burned through almost all the oil in the bike. It started making a lot of noise in the head and I ended up having to rebuild it. When I took the heads off the exhaust valve on both cylinders was totally white. The valve seals were melted to the guides and I wondered if that’s where the oil consumption came from. So I contacted the dealer and asked if there was a different ecu flash they could load to my bike to which they replied there was nothing else they could do. They suggested that I buy an aftermarket tuner or have it dyno tuned, or both. Needless to say I was pretty upset. I had wasted three hundred dollars on the suggested tuner and almost burned up my bike in the process. I took the valves out and cleaned them, upgraded the valve springs and replaced the seals. Put it all back together and bought a power vision tuner. I have done the auto tune feature and flashed it to the bike, but it’s still not quite running right. Looks like I’m gonna have to have it tuned. I had pretty much zero issues out of the bike till I let them flash the new tune to the bike. The last two times I have ridden it , it has shut off on me going down the highway the hazards come on immediately and the bike enters LIP mode . I pull over , cycle the key put it through the diagnosis process and no codes. Turn the key back on and the bike starts right back up. I don’t know where to go or what to do from here but I am pretty unimpressed with how each dealer has handled themselves nearly every time I have gone up there. I love the bike , but I regret having them do anything to it.
