4 valve heads, balance shaft for solid mounting, slipper clutch, monoshock frame, traction control (the three wheelers have it) and the 3.3g tank.

I was in the York plant back in Oct. They were setting up Softail production at that time. I asked the tour guide about Sportster and Street production. All she said was all production was being moved from KC and they were doing the Softails now. Kinda left it at that and didn't elaborate. .

So if anyone has been on the factory tour lately then can comment if they saw Sportsters being built.
