Seems obvious that it was a joke, a pretty good one at that.

One thing for sure I need to get my post numbers up in case I need to by "the fix" from Mr. $tonecold..
If you have decided to go with "The Fix kit", I have one that is for sale. I bought it from Mr Stone few months ago but decided to leave it alone and not do it. It is never been installed. Good Luck!

Just curious if the Harley deflector kit did the trick for you. You are at one post shy of being able to PM.

Geez, lighten up, Francis. Were you abused as a child? A little humor does us all a little good.

Default Deflector install

FWIW. I had the deflector installed per the TA bulletin and I transferred fluid at 3 times the previous rate. So now after working with the factory techs and local dealer they drilled a separate vent into the back of the primary. Apparently this has been done in a number of motorcycles and the problem has resolved itself. So now instead of the primary venting through the transmission and out it will go directly to atmosphere. Intuitively it seems to make sense to me. Miles and more miles will tell.

No this did not resolve the issue. Actually it made it worst. It lost 6 oz in just 300 miles. I have taken it back two more times since then. This last time I have only been able to ride less then 300 miles. They want 500 miles and then take it back to get it checked. Still under HD factory warranty. Have everything on file. Just letting them deal with it for now.

Went through same with my 17 . Put in stonecolds fix about 20k ago not one drop of transfer and those miles were in extreme conditions. Best mod Iíve done as Iíve got no worries when I go out and ride

Pretty much Greg’s Response minus a few expletives as to keyboard ******* etc. has anyone ever heard of a single instance of a Williams pushrod not fixing transfer? I haven’t. And a bike with 10,000 trouble free miles which was a basket case maybe backs up the proposition.....time will tell I guess.

Where exactly do they drill the vent hole in the primary? Is it in the case and what do they put on the hole to keep crud out?

I have a Fix kit for sale in the parts section. I installed it one evening, then I saw the actuator recall the next day, plus the weather was rainy and 36-42 degrees and I didn't ride for a week. I ride a lot of interstate, so with 80-85 mph, I need another gear. Going with a DD7 tranny, so I took it all apart, so don't need it, so it's for sale. Save your self some coins, save your tranny, save me from piling up more crap in my garage, LOL....
