    Unless something was wrong with the motor before; no damage done. When motors are being dyno tuned, they see WOT for longer than 5 seconds multiple times.

    First of all have you noticed any ill effects since this happened? If not and as you have said you baby it and this was a one time occurrence I'd be inclined to say no damage done.

    Harley engines are pretty bulletproof and can withstand high rpm's ( within reason of course) and I'd think if you were going to have an issue you'd know it by now. JMHO.

    Probably no problems as it does have a rev-limiter... BUT doing a quick FREE high rev COLD is not in my Vocabulary...

    On a cold engine NOT a good idea, If you are concerned run a compression test, change the oil and listen for noises

    It's actually better for your baby to work it through the RPM range and all its gears. At least when properly brought up to temp.

    As a new HD owner, always good to be concerned. Bike should be fine & hope your idiot throttle jockey's face is Ok. Best to keep peeps off the bike...think of what could've happened if they slammed it into gear too...
