Default 2014 ultra limited problems

I turned over 1,000 miles yesterday. Bike is back to the Dealer again!!! Each time I come home from a ride, enter my garage, turn off the ignition, in one large belch, it blows all the antifreeze out the overflow tube onto the garage floor, completely empties the reservoir tank. So far my Dealer's solution is to just refill the reservoir and bring the bike back to him when it does it again. Harley says in their 2014 promotion video they did hours of testing, obviously missed this part !!!!!' If it doesn't get fixed this time, the bike will be sold.. When a person buys a $29,000 bike, you should not have to put up with this crap !!!! If anyone has a solution from their Dealer, I will greatly appreciate any input or Dealer contact information.

You're in Ohio; three strikes for the same issue and it's subject to the lemon law.
Seems like an easy fix if Harley replaces the entire cooling system as there seems to be an issue with the neck on the radiator cap area.

Quite a bit of info on here about it if you look around.

Was at the local watering hole yesterday when a new 14' puked it's guts all over the parking lot. The owner was pissed as he waited for his buddy to go get a trailer. The MOCO better get a handle on this quick as the discussion inside was getting ugly and it's now getting national attention.

I'd run that SOB all over God's creation... Get her nice and warm.. .Ride it back to the dealer and put it right in the middle of their showroom and let it puke all over the place!!

It's a Harley! It's just marking it's territory. What do you expect for $30,000?

30 Grand! Boy would I be in a tither. They should give you a ;oaner until they can get it right or your money back. There are no excuses for a $30000.00 motorcycle to be wrong. Come on they didn't redesign the entire engine.
