Harley admits the defect and offered a 50,000 mile 5 year waranty on the cam gear instead of a recall.
My Harley is 2000 year. 4 years to laate but way under the milage "MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH" I am going to call them anyway.
Putting on new tensioners (hydraulic) and the redesigned bearing.
A gear drive instead of the chain and tensioner setup? I don't know how that works.
I will look into it. I will have to be quick, they are working on the bike now.
I could have known there was a "pseuado" recall on the "REAR CAM BEARING" on the exact vin number of my bike.
I typed my vin number into Harley's site and the tech sheet came up for my year,make,and model along with the known cam problem..
I would suggest everyone type there VIN in the harley site and detect problems early. It will be less costly than having pieces of metal throughout the oiling system.
A colonoscopy and prostate check would be recommended for the designer,,,,, everytime one of the cams decides to self distruct..
