    it was the screaming eagle 103", I don't know all the specifics on the bike, I'd have to all and ask.

    The crank is a real issue, how wide spread it is is another story. If they have any that fail, it shows a weakness in the unit IMO and should be upgraded to a better design.

    Can't put any numbers or % on it unfortunately but as I said above, the crank should not be an issue IMO and they are. Compare the 96 cranks to the previous years as far as failure or run out and I think you will agree here.

    oh ya i agree... glider ,they shouldnt but seems like something is happening i was just hopeing someone had some info that was a for sure type deal .. maybe build dates or early or late model yr problem ..i just cant seem to find anything solid on it ..but one thing for sure ive only seen 2-3 posts of people that it actually happened to and the rest seems to be just people itching about it .. ive tryed calling harley .... and ive even called some dealers in calif.and florida ,because those guys ride all yr and it just doesnt seem that wide spread ... i hang at a few of the biker bars in the area where i live and ive made a few friends there ,and one of which is the head tech at the dealership near my home and he stated to me that it wasnt all the wide spread so i dont know . my bike runs fine has great oil pressure and dont vibrate anymore than normal.. and im not hard on it ... so i quess ill just ride it and if it pukes well it pukes ..hopefully someone will eventually be able to shead some light on this subject some time soon so we'll all know for sure how big orsmall it really is keith

    2007 FatBoy and wife's 2007 Deluxe... not one problem... FatBoy just over 20,000 miles and wife's Deluxe 15,000. Regular scheduled maintenance and that's all the bikes have seen the shop.
