Still an unanswered does that happen at 20K miles on a stock motor, not abused and well taken care of (I don't floor it in 6th gear at 1,100 RPM's kind of care).

That question has been asked and answered many times over the years. HD's answer = "they all do that"

[/quote]I'm assuming (hoping) the lifters that are failing, but have not yet failed (imploded my motor), will be covered under my ESP. Hoping the same for the compensator. Talked to my dealer today, assuming my warranty covers a rebuild, i've asked them to upgrade the lifters to S&S and, upgrade anything else that might be more prone to failure in stock form.[/quote]

With metal shavings on the CPS I fear you may need a whole lot more than new lifters, an oil change and cleaning the oil pan which might be the extent of the ESP authorized repair.

[/quote]Besides lifters, anything else to replace/change while in there to extend the life of this motor?[/quote]

To truly extend the life of the 110 is going to take thousands of dollars to rebuild/upgrade it - or just make a coffee table out of it and install a complete  aftermarket engine..

Unfortunately even if in the future you change lifters every 15 -20 thousand miles there's no way to know when your next vacation will be ruined. This may all sound like sour grapes - and perhaps it is - but I had to many vacations interrupted by my 110 until it was 1 vacation to many and I parted ways with it.

I can see how migrating away from the desktop would effect forum use a large degree. I for one, don't see, or understand, why folks want to look at that little screen all day (phone) and try to accomplish anything internet wise. I know many do and it's there choice but if all I had was a phone to look at I wouldn't be on here or any forum.
I have 2 24" screens with a super desktop computer and always will, at least as long as I'm able to still function, lol.

Why are online motorcycle forums dying and drying up?

If the shop fixes it you are golden. If it lost lifter bearings that is a complete out of frame overhaul.
The S&S lifters (delphi) are ok. Morel or Johnsons better.

Besides lifters, anything else to replace/change while in there to extend the life of this motor

Valve springs and camshaft.
Your shop will be able to provide recommendations specifically.

The CVO 110 is more of a "tried and failed." 

Now that's a great quote.  I'm so glad I got the last of the CVO 103s. The only time the lifters were changed was when Jim at Metal Dragon rebuilt the engine at 84K miles.

I don’t know what he calls his.

Maybe Easy Off would be suitable?

Don’t want him lusting after mine.

My 2004 has been with me since 9-17-03 and I don’t reckon Betsy is going anywhere

Isn't that what Brian calls his B&B?

I would have stopped and called HOG road service, also!  I'm of the mind set that I don't want to cause any more damage than what's been done.

On my 2010 CVO Street Glide the MoCo replaced the motor at 30k miles, under warranty.  On the flip side, my 2013 CVO Ultra Classic with 71,000 miles has been the most reliable Harley that I've ever owned (completely stock except the Fulsac header, cores and a tuner.  I just keep riding it.  And more than a few people on this forum have accused me of being an aggressive  rider.   I've rode across Death Valley when it was 118F and I've rode in Colorado at 18F and like a Timex, it just keeps on running.
