    I'm running a 97 evo ultra and it has a tap in the bottom end, so I'm thinking rebuild. I wasted a roller on rear exhaust lifter this summer and had to replace cam and lifters while I had it apart I washed it out and replace the breather with a reed type from S&S. But after a 2000 mile break in the engine developed the tap. Any way I was wondering if anyboby has any experience with Hot Shot motorworks in Upper Sandusky,Ohio. Also, I have an EV27 cam, early dual throat FI system Any suggestions for more usable touring power. Thanks ahead of time.

    Just a thought here, did you ever clean out the lifter screen by the oil pump?

    yep, every oil change, but especially after the lifter failed.
