Lifters
« on: August 12, 2018, 05:49:49 PM »

 I read a lot about lifters taking out motors on the 110 why is it that  they don’t have any trouble with the smaller motors ?   There’s not much difference between a 96 , a 103,  so why so much lifter trouble with the 110s ?

They all have issues, less so on the 96 and 103's. There isn't any rhyme or reason as to why but the speculation from many is that the 110 head spring pressures are really high.

Seems to be the newer 110's with lifter problems. I have an 2009 Springer with a 110 and have not had any problems. I am looking at a 2015 Tourer with a 110 and my service guy said straight away that I should consider better lifters.

I did lifters in my 08 springer at 18k and I did them in my 09 Glide at 31k.
