...and so it starts. Knock, knock, knock ...
« on: June 23, 2018, 10:02:47 PM »

I was going to get a Dyno pull on my bike today and I noticed a loud knock or rattle that was unusual. So instead of a Dyno, I had the bike left in service for diagnosis. Got a call, they're going to crack my 2018 114ci M-8 open and start looking at the CAM and Lifters.

Oh Joy. Will keep you updated. Btw, I just rolled over 10k miles on the bike.

Sorry to read this, Simon. Let's hope it's something less than a failure.

Thanks Greg. Got my fingers crossed. It's under warranty and no modifications other than my HD dealer. The engine upgrade was part of the purchase order back in September. I also have a few other bikes I can ride :)

Sorry to hear that Simon.  Really hoping the M8s wouldn't have problems like the TCs did / do.  Keep us posted and best wishes for getting it sorted soon. :2vrolijk_21:

Hate hearing of the potential bad news Simon.  Will keep the finger crossed that it's an easy fix. Good luck man.

Damn this stinks. Hope it isn't anything serious. May have to break out the Galaxy Glide for those short trips.

I hope this isn't a serious problem.  At least it is still under warranty.  Glad you have others to ride to hold you over during this difficult time., HA!

Even though the valve lifts are relatively low compared to the bigger Twin Cams, you're opening 2 and not 1, and it's all being done on one camshaft.  Will be curious to hear what is going on here, and, more broadly, if M8s will also have, let's sat, "valvetrain longevity issues".

Morning Simon,
This was your last post on this subject from this past Saturday.  Any updates?

They placed parts order for cam, pushrods, and more. The service writer was not my primary and useless as TOAB. I’ll call and find out more today.
