Approaching 15k and was wondering the consensus on what to do. Is it things I can manage myself or should I take it to the dealership to have it performed??? Any thoughts/opinions would be great.
You're probably looking at 6 hours or more if the shop does the lash check.The only thing (mechanically) that i have really done myself is change the oil. As far as i know the plugs have never been changed, nor has the fall away been checked. I do ride hard for the most part, but havent noticed any noises at all. Im going to need new tires this year, so i already know that. What might I expect to pay to have this stuff done??
I had a dealer quote me 3 hours. I won't be going there for V-Rod service any time soon. It takes that long to get the cam covers off.You're probably looking at 6 hours or more if the shop does the lash check.
1) Yes, I can't see any reason why not.I called my local dealer and he quoted me about $300 for the service. Seems like a lot to me, but I’m not sure? The cams are a good idea, but a few questions: 1. Can I do the cams even though I only have a PC3? 2. How much do the cams run? 3. What kind of gains can be expected from them?? Thanks for all the input guys.
Pete, the part number for the kit is 30076-09. Probably a typo. That kit comes with an SE air filter also, Lou.1) Yes, I can't see any reason why not.
2) Part # 30079-09, $500 - Chicago HD was giving 20% off when I bought them, so $400 NET.
3) I saw 16HP over a previously tuned, Powerlined and SE Air filtered that was producing 110 HP at the wheel (now getting 126 HP and you can really notice the difference).
If you go the cams route, toss the stacks that come in the kit and have it tuned with the stock velocity stacks. They gave much better power results.
$300 seems to be a pretty popular number, there's a fair amount of labor to do the valve lash check, which is why you should do the cams if you have the scratch - no extra labor involved.
EDIT: Don't let them tell you they won't fit if you have an 1130 motor - that's BS and they will fit and work just fine.
