The FXRS was the best handling Harley (Eric Buel on the design team) yours must have the indestructible Evo engine. The best of HD.Hi
Thanks Peg I use the soda blaster from harbor freight with soda from them for blasting carb parts pistons and such.
I think the cases came out great as well just used kerosene and elbow grease on those course helped bunches.
That is my 1988 Fxrs you spotted good eye
FTG yes a sweet classic for sure I feel very fortunate to be turning wrenches on her will be great to have out on the road again.
She’s pretty close! Rims and spokes are now stainless and I didn’t paint the centres and I’ve never bothered with the pinstripes or transfers.Hi
We're you able to restore your 52 to oem spec?
Yes I agree fantastic bikes looking forward to the roar!
Harley used the cheapest AN cam bearing they could find. Didn't matter what cam was used. Once the bearing failed it would usually take out every single gear in the cam chest. Then migrate into the case breather and into the oil pump. And if that wasn't insult to injury, the needle bearings would crush between the case and flywheels.Peg
You sure do know your cycles Evo is a great engine and Fxr frame so so nice on the Twisties
I had a cam bearing go out andrews ev5 cam hard on those instead of rebuilding again 75k+ miles I upgraded her with a S&S v111.
Torrington is the fix. The A.N has the plastic retainer. Who would have thought 2cents would break harleys bank account?
Anyway. The case has almost 8000 trouble free miles and still going strong.
