Hi all, I want to gather some thoughts about my plans for my 08 Ultra with 78K miles on it. I bought it new in March of 2008 and have been riding it through everything, torrential rain, cold (into December in New England) and even snow. I have been thru 7 rear tires, all Dunlop 402, and 3 fronts. At 25K miles I had to change the front wheel bearings (don't use carwash hose to clean bike). From when the bike was new the starter made a horrible noise when starting hot. After reading this forum, I thought it might be the comp sprocket. So I bought the SE upgrade. When I opened up the primary and started disassembly, I noticed the sprocket nut was just loose. I already bought the SE kit so I installed it anyway. On reassembly the clutch hub would'nt go on the shaft, all the splines were stripped out. Upgrade to SE Clutch hub. Now that I have Popeye forearms, I am very pleased with this upgrade. I am thinking of doing the SE Stage II Big Bore kit next winter, I should have around 100K miles by then. I don't know much about heads and am not sure if I should do anything with the stock ones or look to upgrade again. This bike has been very good to me, other than what I mentioned above I have had NO problems. I do all my own maintenance, Mobil 1 in the engine, HD Formula+ in the primary, Spectro in the tranny. Also I am getting 40 mpg stock, what should I expect with the big bore kit. Thanx for any replies.
