I have an 08' Nightrain, bought it new in Hammond, La. and the evening I picked it up, the mech. started telling me the do's and don't. I have had several Harleys thru the years, older ones, 62 pan, 74 glide, 78 lowrider and the one I kept longest, an 85 custom. they all had their temperments, they all loved attention, but I never had cams, cranks and all these internal failures and malfunctions. they leaked, popped, and sometimes refused to crank, usually when you really needed her to start. But with these T/C engines, (mine is the 96B) I read and hear about cam bearings, chain tensioners, dropping and sometime lost oil pressure. and engine temp is almost in all conversations somewhere. Choice of engine oil, reputable oil and filters seem to be the difference in a destroyed engine or not. some guys talk about 50K miles and even 100K miles on their T/C. I have 9K on mine and wonder if my HD 360 and black oil filter is sufficient or if my engine is slowly grinding and wearing it's way to destruction. I know within reason, all engines wear. but reading about the engine failures on these new designs makes me wonder about new technoligy. certainly I want the best in my engine and read where owners discuss 2 or 3 dollars difference in a filter or quart of oil, We are riding a 10K -20K dollar and higher machine and a few bucks doesn't enter my thought. I am Harley and have listen to my Dad argue with me at times about the attention my harleys have always gotten, and he's been ridin a 82 or 83 Goldwing for 90K miles on 20/50 Castrol. a totally different thing I know. anyway, Just an observation I suppose. But are these T/C engines less capable? I don't know this, just making conversation, and hoping I never know what the inside of my 96B looks like. until then, I'll keep riding for sure, then I'll bring home the parts and fix it.
