Harley-Davidson Milwaukee 8 Engine Problems!
Fort Lauderdale, Florida USA

Bikers are loving the torc they are feeling riding the new 107-engine the Milwaukee 8 have. It’s been two years and some problems have bubbled up to HD attention. This video explains some of those problems that you may or may not be having. I have personally have blown one oil pump on my 2017 RGU in 3,000 miles but there is a new oil pump that cures the problem.

Over all I love my 107 over the 103 but I just purchased a 114 a week ago from Rock City HD in AR. They gave me and other LDR guys awesome deals. Call Joel Britt at Rock City and tell them the Attorney That RIDES in FL referred ya to get a new bike. If ya buy one I get $200!

Here is another mechanic telling us about other issues that the primary video does not touch on. The tech is from BIG TWIN SERVICES EVANS, GA 

Some of the comments in response to GA tech’s video are as follows:

“Im a Harley Tech,, and have not seen this problem once so far in our dealership,, the expansion of the parts when at running temperature is considerable,, i can assure you that chain is to tight and will eventually damage parts in the drivetrain ie compensator / trans mainshaft bearings,, not to mention the very early wear of the tensioner shoe.. 7/8 cold and 3/8 hot is what it should have.. you should have moved it maybe one or 2 clicks at most so the chain just barley didnt hit the case and left it there 6 clicks is way to much.. but you are there i am not your call your responsibility ,, i just hate to see harley get blamed for misjudgment of the person working on it and making a incorrect adjustment..”

Eitherway, when you go to buy a used bike make sure the services were done correctly and frequent!
