Did yours go before or after you modified it.
Did you sell those 120 jugs ?

my bike was messed with from day one. And they have Prochargerís on bikes with stock trans. So itís not the design itís a bad heat treating process. Dealers around here have had bikes come in. I ride with a power train engineer and he said same thing. They build the Power trains 17 minutes from my house.

And no still Iíll have them

Looking at the thread with OP's modifications, I doubt they will warranty it. In addition to aftermarket cam and numerous other parts, he committed the unforgivable sin of using an aftermarket tuner. When they void a warranty for an aftermarket tuner, it isn't just the engine.

Hopefully things will turn out well for him, but I wouldn't be surprised if they don't.

If they don't cover it under warranty, he should probably look at a Baker product instead of repairing the OEM with OEM parts that may fail again.
