Looks well built, lets wait and see if they have any issues.

It sounds like Harley took a lot of the complaints from riders and addressed as many of them as they could. From what I read, I like the fact that they have one cam for each valve. Sound Familiar? Another similarity to the Sportster is that the transmission and clutch and primary are all housed in the same case. From this article, this engine does seem to be well thought out, but lets just hope that their quality control improves...

I guess the engineering dep. wrote down your note and tried to minimize the QC issue that may happen!

"The base of the piston is chamfered so no piston ring compression tool is required for installation. "

They mention the cam alot and certain improvements and even included maint info like in the cam bearing mention.

Quote:
The drive-side camshaft bearing journal is part of the drive sprocket, a design that makes it possible to remove the camshaft for service or a future performance upgrade without disassembling the camshaft drive.
Too bad they did not include ease of cam chain replacement. Plus tensioners. Most common problem IMO on overhead chain drive cams. Especially tensioners.
