110 Lifter question
« on: February 17, 2021, 10:25:11 PM »

      Well there's been a ton of stuff about the bad lifters in the CVO motors. Well the last year of the twin cam was 2016. Did Harley Davidson finally get the lifter problem solved or were the lifters still a problem even towards the end of the twinkie?

I would say still a problem, although the issue is accelerate by valve springs that are too heavy and the quick ramp profile of the SE255 cam.  Change the lifters and address the valve springs and consider a cam change, you will be good for a long time.

True engine and head experts will likely chime-in, but just my $0.02

My 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra had the last lifter revision that harley did for the 110 TC motors.  At 44K miles I had lifter failure on that bike.  Glad it was the day before the 2 year warranty was up.  Harley replaced the engine.

on my 16, 110 i changed out the lifters at 21k. they looked and felt good, at 40k changed them again same thing, im at 52k now and thing runs good... makes some noise after a 5/600 mile day but im not worrying about it to much, 98% percent of the time it runs and sounds as good as the day i bought it. dont think i will do any motor work on it till it starts to use oil, witch it dont do at this time.

My 2015 lost a lifter at 17,00 miles on a super slab . When they go there is no guessing,,, you know. I now replace them  every  15/ 20K, I just consider it routine maintenance. Other than the "routine maintenance" of the lifters, I like the 110. I would not hesitate buying a  bike that had  a 110,, if it a had a documented  maintenance record and passed a look see from a favorite mechanic.

So do you have the quickie push rods or do you take apart the top end every time?
