HD is a big company with high dollar lawyers. Would i testify, hell yeah. Would I expect to win the lawsuit? I wouldnt hold my breath. Yes I dealt with HD for the first couple years after I bought the bike, I talked to them about all of my problems. I finally gave up and started working on it myself. Even the people that seem to care and know what they are talking about really dont. It'll take a lawsuit before they issue recalls, but with todays economy that lawsuit might just mean no more H-D, you think it is hard to find parts now??
