I’ve got $500 deposit down on a Red Pepper here in Milwaukee, but they have to ship it from a different dealer in their family of dealers. Checking it out on Monday.

If I like the bike I may be buying. Have them down to $39,000, but hoping they will come down a bit more. I doubt it though.

Sounds like a great price for an incredible bike!

I would try for $37,000.  In three weeks the 2020s will make the 2019 worth 15% less

Extremely disappointed in the Quality of the 19 Red Pepper.  My 7th CVO since 2009. 

The bike now has 13,300 miles on it.
The front fork legs look like they have been sand blasted,  Chips everywhere.  Looks horrible.
This bike has more paint chips than my last four bikes did added together, and its not been on gravel like two of my past bikes.
The seat looks like it has over 50K miles on it,  it is wearing badly.  My last two CVO showed no wear at all on the seat with 24K miles.
Paint coming off the shifter leavers.

Going to talk to dealer about all this, hoping Harley will cover fork legs, seat and shift levers.  I am 99% sure they will do nothing about the crappy paint that chips if you look at it.

Fork legs were replaced.
Seat was replaced
Shift levers were replaced
Front brake rotors were replaced for the second time.

Dealer really went to bat for me and got Harley to cover it.

The next project has started on my Red Pepper.  Tear down of motor starts at 22804 miles.  We started at 1240 on Sunday.  We got the whole top end torn down, we also test fit the new 130 S&S cylinders and the Mahle flat top pistons and will be able to get zero deck height with a 0.014 base gasket.  Lifter are out, one piston oiler was removed and installed with a new gasket.  We ended at 5:00 Sunday afternoon.  Will resume today

We only had 3.5 hours to work yesterday due to me having a DR appointment in the afternoon.  We still got a lot done.  Its coming together.

Got the old clutch guts out.


Got the new Recluse Torque drive clutch in, it has twice as many plates as stock so much more surface area for clamping and handling big torque.


Got the cam chest apart, old oil pump out, cam out, cam bearings out.


New inner cam bearing in, new CR-482 cam in, new  2020 HD 8 lobe oil pump in,


New woods alpha lifters in, and new S&S anti rotation lifter cuffs in.


Cam chest and accessories all together.
