I would figure it would read:

The recall pertains for all models. The problem is that they are . They will break down and spend a lot of time getting worked on. You WILL be forced to become a makeshift Harley mechanic by the time it is all said and done.

Corrective Action: Get rid of the money pit fast and buy anything else.

Harley fan or not.
They appreaciate in value most of the time. Not a lot of sportbikes can claim that.

The recall is only for the Harley Pinto's! The rest are covered by part lines walking down the side of the road gathering whatever else fell off their bikes!

Ah - so in other words, you have no idea what you're talking about.

If you're looking at the ones from 20 years ago? Sure - they suck. Current models (i.e. anything made after about 1999 or so) are about as reliable as anything mechanical can be.

Dont forget my friend, there was a time when Honda and Toyota were considered "cheap pieces of foreign " and Hyundai was considered a throw-away car or a "Dispose-mobile".

EVERY manufacturer has its rough patches. Im not an HD fan even though I own one, but they do make a solid machine.

Is it because the owner spend so much money to keep it running? If I put $10K to build the motor because the original crapped out, I would try to sell it to the buyer.


Just kidding. They shake horribly, and most people would buy them to pose.

Maybe when you are stranded on the road, you will be just another HD.

BTW, what is the recommended service for a tune up?
