I have always used both so the same here.....priced a bit more than dealer 1000 mile service it's a no brainer.  They always worked great in the twinks .

Guess I have to call Monday .....says back ordered already. Lol. I bet they won't keep up for a bit. Lots of us prefer S&S over the other ...for good reason if you have used the other 2. No comparison .  Have few junk screaming chicken ones in the pile from twinks.

I knew before I ordered it is was going to be back ordered.

Since I am in no hurry for it, the wait isn't a big deal.

I am still collecting all the components for my 124" build, and the S&S pump and plate were a must have.

Same here..no hurry as I have no problems .....but if I hear 4 or 5 guys bitch about a brand of tire giving them trouble.  I sure as hell not going to dealer to have them put the same piece of crap on till I crash 😂  Just preventive as its way too cheap even if it's not needed in my stock motor.
The MOCO could have learned from the twink with just looking at the S&S pump back than..but they didn't .

The same could be said of a lot of other components over the years.  The Harley aftermarket became so huge, including the rise of S&S btw, due to the fact that so much of what Harley provided was substandard.  Just think about how many companies and jobs would have never materialized if Harley just did things right the first (or second, or third) time. ;D

Ah.....don't know how old u are...but the rise of S&S?  😂 Been around a long long long time for us higher performance owners/ builders .. i guess around since 1958 is pretty new 🙄  Do u own a M8?  Just wondering if you have had one apart in your own 2 hands.....🤔  Seem to hate on something and awful lot but no real solutions posted........   
Good news is I get to void my worthless warranty and actually put a part in the motor that will work. Unlike the warranty stuff that sits in the shop for months.....collecting dust.

That I'm not sure of Jerry.  Cars, bikes, tricycles....  Even if they're right we tinker.  At least enough of us do to make an aftermarket feasible.  Gearheads, car junkies, petrol heads, whatever we're called; sometimes (too often) we just can't leave stuff alone.

Pump clearly marked w fir waterpumpers or o for oil cooled.  Good instructions........ Don't know what others were crying about.  I guess if you never did any engine work it might be confusing .  But have used a bunch of them in twinks.  My first m8 case cracking party.....tooo simple not too do

Looks pretty, hope in increases scavenging and works well.  I'd like to see that hinged style tensioner design on the twin cam camplates.
