Just picked up my 04 Road King with only 18,500 miles, it developed a sputter and I learned it suffered a problem described as "flywheel wobble" by the certified Harley mechanic, cost me $3,800 to have rebuilt. I have learned "flywheel wobble" means premature crankshaft wear which in turn causes compression loss from the wobble as the piston travels up the cylinder, and is very common with the twin cam engines.
When I questioned the certified mechanic about the problem on such a low mileage engine he responded, "I've seen it happen in engines with only 5,000 miles on them", yet no help is offered from Harley Davidson.
Shame on Harley Davidson, I will die believing they owe me some money and vow that they will never see another dollar of mine. If your thinking of owning a Harley do your home work, and consider buying an older one with the Evolution engine.
