Harley Davidson Complaint - Bad flywheels - 88 inch twin cam motor
MILLWALKEE, WISCONSIN -- I own a 2000FLHTCI and the flywheels I found out are a press fit and have a tendency to slip and become unbalanced. I understand this is a on going issue. I have only 30,ooo miles on the bike itself and now I need to have my engine rebuilt. You pay a lot of money for these bikes and they fall apart so early in there life. I called and talked to a dealer and found out that Harley Davidson has a rebuild program, it will cost me around $4,000 to have the engine pulled out by a certified dealer and sent to Harley Davidson rebuilt and sent back to the dealer, then reinstalled. I did ask the dealer and I also called the Harley Davidson factory it self and asked about the flywheels being tig welds to prevent them from slipping again and was told that they will not weld them. I can get a 1 year warranty unlimited mileage. What good it that if the problem is not fixed. So what we are looking at is after 1 year the problem happens again I am stuck paying another $4,000 for another engine.
