thanks.

Always seem to be plenty of engines for sale on Ebay, but usually 883's. But you could just swop your top end over

Just remembered, you would need to change primary gearing over also. (i think)!

1. Yes... you can get a 1275 Hammer kit.

2. Why changing the primary gearing???? no need for it unless your riding stile requires that.

Well, in November, at 111,000 miles, the crank bearings failed, and the crank assembly was replaced, along with the rings & lifters. $4,000. Yesterday, 1150 miles later, she puked oil on the back tire, started clattering & quit in the space of about half a mile. No oil light warning, just a little rear tire spin on leaving a stop, then the noise, then shut down. Haven't heard from the dealer yet, as to what the problem is. I was about 5 miles from them when it quit & they came out to get me with their trailer. I hope it was a parts failure on something they did. If not, this may be the end for this bike. After 11 years & all those miles, I'm gonna miss her. Can't afford a new bike right now, & since H-D no longer sells a bike that I want, I'll be getting a used one if I can find one that's not too $$$. Maybe I'll find that Roadster I've kinda wanted.

Dealer called today. The drain hose from the oil tank had dry rotted & split. Dumped the oil on the rear tire & blew the new lifters out. Not their fault, technically, but I think they felt bad for not catching that hose. They had the bike for 7 weeks & coulda, shoulda checked everything maybe a bit better than they did. Especially on a 11 year old bike. I had changed the oil back in October, but didn't notice that hose being iffy, then. But, they are comping the labor & splitting the cost of the parts with me, so it's not gonna cost an arm & a leg. I'm happy. They really didn't have to do that for me. They pretty much got me as a loyal customer from now on.

Damnnnn Brian, that really sucks. Curious though as I had my drain hose on the black bike wore a hole rubbing/vibrating against the other hoses near the top rear of the tranny. Also, my three Sportys are all much older than yours with similar miles but not a single “dry rotted” line among them, hmmm?
Good on them to pitch in on the repair. I guess we won’t t be running to Crustys anytime soon.

Yeah, it sucks. Gonna have to ride Laura's bike for a bit, I guess. As far as "dry rotting" goes, it may be just as on yours... abrasion. Like I said above, I didn't notice any deterioration of that hose last oil change. Won't know till I go see for myself. Probly ride down there today & talk with them. Something else I'm going to have them check is the oil pressure sender. Did not see the oil light come on. Might have saved the damage if that had lit up. It came on at key-on & went out when the engine fired.
