Default Well $#it...I sumped this evening

Got hit by the sump fairy this evening. 2019 cvo, cam put in on May 31 and outstanding til this evening. On a back road I decided to run through the gears hard from a stop, ran it up to 5th and then just cruised, about 2 miles later pulled from a stop sign and it was very sluggish, not much power, I pulled over and checked the oil, just showed a little on the tip of the stick, let it sit for about 10 mins but it didnt seem any hotter than normal, was only about 2 miles from the house so I limped it home. Sucks *** but what cha gonna do. Guess my honeymoon phase is over, LoL

All you can do now is pull the crank trigger out and drain the oil from the crankcase area. Put it back and fire the bike up and it should go back to normal running again. Sorry it happened but that's the normal time when they do it, run it hard and then shortly afterwards you have trouble.

Steve,

Can you explain the process of pulling the crank trigger, is it difficult?

Welcome to the club. If you're going to use your warranty I wouldn't drain the sump. Leave it alone. Tell them to come and get it.

How many miles? My 114" waited until 7,400 miles.

Hope you have better luck with the repair than I did.

Did the cam already void the warranty?
