I hope that feeling is intuitive and not physical. Mine's as smooth as silk at any RPMs I've had it at. And yeah, I get even worse gas mileage than Harley said they get. But it is a high performance factory engine. I'm hoping when I switch to synthetic oil it will improve.... I love this bike, but man that high rpm stuff not only makes me feel like the thing is going to blow, but the gas millage is very bad and really could be better if the rpmscouldbe brought down.
HI GUYS, SORRY TO BE A LITTLE fftopic: BUT IS THIS THE SAME CASE WITH THE GEAR SHIFTING? WHILE CRUISING, IT FEELS THE SAME AS A REGULAR AIR COOLED HARLEY (0-10 1ST GEAR, 20-30 2ND, ETC) BUT IF YOU PULL THE THROTTLE "RACING-STYLE", I CAN GET 90 MPH AND STILL BE ON 3RD GEAR... I GUESS THIS IS NORMAL SINCE THIS ENGINE REVS A HELL FASTER THAN A REGULAR EVO, BUT JUST A THOUGHT... :lamer:... and if new, definitely do not follow the Harley Davidson dealer break in instructions letter that they give you with your new bike purchase. I called them about it, they said it's a standard letter they give to all their customers, I say 'but it's not a standard Evo engine', sales guy says yeah sorry, you should definitely not follow that letter... :chair:
check how many tooth your pulley is. if you have a 26T on your bike and you would like a 30T,we could work out a deal and il trade you my 30T and flange for (if it is a 26T) the 26.Do they make a 30 tooth? LOL I will check it out. I love this bike, but man that high rpm stuff not only makes me feel like the thing is going to blow, but the gas millage is very bad and really could be better if the rpmscouldbe brought down.
30T front sprockets are still used (and have always been used) on the European delivery bikes.ya 30 tooth came out on 02 and 03 only. one always pop up in the for sale section here but if your bike if 04 and newer you would have to buy a different flange to bolt on the pulley. but she is not going to blow they are made to run high RPMs.
