Yeah.. The good thing is that Bagger Nuts can be adapted to this chassis arrangement easily..

I am having an issue with what oil to run,

No really if that tuner is back order that sucks. I ordered my bike as well as all the stuff to make it the 114", i won't be happy if i can't get that stuff. The techs aren't trained in it yet, but really motors are motors, i have faith they can get it together. Plus i have a 7 year warranty so if there are any issues. I am assuming those back ordered products will start clearing now that the dealer show is done.

Looks like PC and TTS will have tuners shortly..

Yea, thats my problem also. The ones I rode were really good running bikes and they were not even broke in yet. I bet Harley sells a bunch of these.

The first '17 my dealer got in was a King in Blue/Silver. She was a sight to see.






Meanwhile, looks like my new one (or at least the one I'd buy) just rolled off the truck:

Just curious as why a "bone stock" bike that will out perform MOST of the modified Harley's on the road is a problem?
