We have met the Minimum Monthly Requirement (MMR) for motorcycle oil threads.  June is considered a vacation month, therefore the MMR is lower for June.

We may have met the MMR for May but we are WAY over the TLV for the entire subject... :huepfenjump3: :bananarock: :nervous: :huepfenlol2: :2vrolijk_21:

FWIW: The springs on the 110 heads are way over the top. Seat pressure is much higher than it needs to be. I throw the stock springs in the spare parts bin and use something lighter on the seat.

Not saying that's your problem, but it's certainly not helping your cause. Next time the heads are off, put some springs on that are lighter on the seat pressure and also lighter open pressure.

I think the real problem is just the crappy lifters that HD uses. Lighter springs would also go in if I were building it.

If only someone would invent ANOTHER new & ridiculously expensive wax or polish that would give the best results ever even when compared to any other ridiculously expensive wax or polish.  Of course it would then be The Best of All Time.  Otherwise known as TBoAT.  Hopefully soon someone will do this.
