This extended oil plug came to mind in a case like this, of course the dealers will say there isn't a need but....the end piece is a rare earth magnet, it gets up to where the oil is actually circulating, of course it will only capture ferrous material. Drag specialty part.

It'll help balance the chi of the bike too.  :D

Of course people with lowered bikes will have to jack the bike up to remove or install that longer plug.  Does a floor jack come with it?

In all seriousness, considering how some Harley dealers and service reps are jerks and a-holes, if your bike is still in warranty you might want to think long and hard about replacing parts like lifters with aftermarket parts.  Even if the aftermarket part isn't what causes a related failure, you can count on H-D using your aftermarket parts as an excuse to refuse to pay for the repair.

Good advice,  2yr factory warranty expires 2/18, and then the 5yr extended warranty kicks in.

My oil drain plug is horizontal so no worries there. I do not recommend installing it in any other hole, maybe.

Bob, I hope you disassemble the camchest too, maybe even new inner cam bearings while yer in there.  :nixweiss:

Twolane, yer bike most definitely has chi.  :bananarock: you'd know if it's out of balance, possibly.

Dealer replaced mine at 6500 as a precautionary measure due the suspect motor noise. Unfortunately they messed something up and the bike keeps blowing oil out the pushrod seals due to some type of high pressure (this has happened 3x). First they blamed that the technician overfilled the oil, second they replaced the seals, third they blamed a seal in the head from the factory. Not sure why it did not do this prior before they replaced the lifters.

Ugh - dealeships

My 2010 FLHXSE just turned 60K miles. In independent shop replacing inner cam bearings, cam plate, oil pump, cam chains and tensioners (lifters upgraded to S&S Premium at 45K miles). As long as the cam chest is apart may as well replace worn parts now (parts relatively inexpensive) rather than wait until something grenades causing major headache. Also replacing 2nd compensator that just started kicking back a bit. Hopefully bike will be good for another $60K miles even if I might not be.

Sounds like they somehow blocked the motor from venting and it's building up pressure. may be wrong here, I can you when they are improperly vented they don't like it...Just a long shot check backplate make sure it si venting, Make damn sure you have  a good clean filter

It seemed to happen with the same scenario. Highway speeds around 3k RPM.
Just got her back. Will see how she runs. Very frustrating.
