    While at the dealer getting my 2008 Sportser's rear cylinder top rocker cover gasket replaced because of a oil leak I noticed 2 cylinders sitting on the bench with a steel straight rule on one of them. I ask what was up and the Shop foreman said there was a recall on the headgaskets but in the process of replacing the gaskets they noticed that the liner had move up in the casting. Anybody heard simarlier stories. They had 3 bikes with same.

    Yep, the 110 has a few problems for sure. Heard of a few of them.

    These cylinders belonged to a guy who was going to leave on a trip in a 2 days. HD was unable to get cylinders to the dealer for more than a week. The liners had moved up in the casting enough that you could see the lip it made. On very upset rider.

    There's going to be a lot of unhappy 110 riders and as time goes by, there's going to be some unhappy 96 riders too with the cranks when they up the power on them.

    Zero issues with the 110" here. Approaching two years of smiles. There is a free product enhancement campaign that will build more robustness and longevity into the engine. Guess I'll have it done at the next major service.

    When I checked with my large volume dealer on this campaign, noting I didn't have any problems, it was mentioned they were not surprised, having not seen any significant 110" woes. Web sites are a magnet for problem reporting but the issues reported are not reflective of the majority. This is true for any motorcycle community, whether it is Honda stators, BMW final drives, Ducati 1098 false neutrals.
