Tension

When should I have my cam chain tensioners checked?

Cam tensioners can wear out without warning and this can be catastrophic to your engine. You might see changes in your engines timing or your bike just might not be running as it should. It will make a noise but most people don’t hear it until it’s too late. We’ve seen cam chain tensioners fail at 6,000 miles and at 50,000 miles. If you haven’t had a problem and you’re at 20,000-25,000 miles have them inspected.

Florida is hard on motorcycle tires, heat, changing air pressure from the heat and not checking air pressure all factor in. Do they feel really hard, are they cracked, brittle looking or do they have flat/worn spots? If you answered Yes, to any of those questions, it's time to at least have them checked.

My bike is not handling well. My front tire is wearing out, what can be the cause?

The first place to start is a Fork Service, fork oil is the most neglected fluid in your bike. We recommend a fork service every 10,000 miles if you have 41mm or 39mm front forks. Newer models with 48mm forks, Harley recommends a rebuild at 40,000.
