    The interval I service is about 3/4 months. or roughly 5k km.

    Change oil, oil filter, sparks, check air filter.

    less than $200.

    Cheaper if you DIY.

    Well...
    mayb U can phrase it that way...

    let talk about a 09-10 883L
    yup cheapest in the range...
    est otr should be ard 21-22k
    10% as dwpayment....
    drag 5 yrs ard $370 per mth....

    afford to buy is 1 thing...
    afford to maintain & afford to mod...
    is another whole issue altogether....

    I riding a 96 XL1200C
    Buying her is no problem...
    maintaining (that include repairs) & modding her require some effort..lol
    But true enough....

    NOTHING BEATS RIDING A HARLEY!!!!

    She is my 15th bike....
    had numerous 2B & 2A bikes
    2 CL2 bike so far exclude her
    ZX12R & FZS1000 before her....
    rode most of the japanese bike models also
    when it come to top speed HD is not built for that...
    but the pickup, mid-range, the torque....
    typical of a vtwin & the "sound" she made...
    Trust me on that You be memerised ...

    Cheers!!!

    i think it has something to do abt cruisers, they are fun to ride. i don't have a hog but am riding a cruiser, never thought i would like it when i first bought it, was pretty hesistant on getting a cruiser as well but after 3 yrs, i doubt that i will get rid of her.

    steven is right, its just the mid range grunt and the vtwin thump which makes live interesting.

    on the maintainence end, i think all bikes are more or less the same. big ticket items will need to be factored on high milage bikes, such as clutch, brake discs etc besides that oil changes are ok every 3-5k km as i run mineral on mine and i just change the oils more often.

    the dyna on sale is actually very tidy. it handles very well too. i used to ride my mate's 1450 super glide and i loved it.

    Hi!

    To some it could be their ultimate dream bike since childhoods, to other's it might be a noisy pce of s#@t. People perception will change and can be influence but others and wanna be. I used to have two HD sold one off kept one for me till I die...makesure it's a evolution Engine. Anyway, my advice to those who wanted to buy or own one, try to rent one from the dealership for a day or two, feel the never ending fighting against the bike. Then consider to buy, another one of advice...EFi and Carb riding is different if you have friends who own a Carb try that first ... EFi are more smoother but do not have that tone u might want.. That's all for the day...next story another day..

    Cheers///

    haha...
    true true...
    some idoits liek to funny things to HD....

    Usually either cover up or park where the human traffic flow is high (like 1st floor of MSCP)
    that is what i do...

    When i go hunting for my Sporty....
    most if nt all live in HDB ...lol

    either get an alarm fr Agent
    or put a disc lock alarm... (better than nthing)

    So far I been lucky no funny incidents

    EFI seem to be more "powerful" on paper specs compare to carb....
    But 1 thing for sure the true potato sound of a harley will be very minimise...

    cheers!!!

    my side, there is one malay uncle ride harley

    you know what he do?
    he cover everyday. after riding back, he goes upstairs, takes the bike cover, come down and cover and then go home.

    in the morning, takes off the bike cover and goes upstairs to put
    then go down stairs to ride off.

    then problem come, the parking people will disturb the cover

    he then tak boleh tahan, no more bike cover
    then si ginna come and play his handlebar
    sit on the bike like very fun.
    put used bubble tea on his bike
    put used tissue on his bike.
    cig burns on his tank and seat

    after that, he give up
    told me he could not sleep at night
    sold the harley and got a shadow

    now he is a much happier man

    Everything comes with a price to sacrifice.

    Extra precaution needs to be implemented from unnecessary issues, if that uncle chose not to cover his bike, prepare for the worst.

    Complains can be given against those Parking enforcement officer if they remove and did not cover back it properly.

    In an addition, someone mentioned, anyone can afford a Harley. However, it doesn't necessary means that anyone can own and ride one too.
    All as well, ends well.

    Well if u ask me.. buy a new Harley then dun need worry abt maintaining it that much cos there will be a service package provided by dealership anyway. So it depends on what type of HD are u getting. New or Pre Loved.

    i bought my bike brand new and now its mileage is 100K ++

    i would say the price of buying a harley is almost similar to jap class 2 bike if you buy a sportster. REGULAR maintenance i would say is comparable to jap bike too, unless you choose to send it to dealer which will be slightly more ex as their labour not cheap. Then when your bike mileage went above 70k, then the serious money comes in.

    problems such as burn stator (recharge ur batt) $300, engine cover gasket $240 change (leaking), clutch hub $280 (1 tooth broke), flywheel replacement $2500 (1 small bushing wear out, yes 1 small bushing wear out and i gotta change the whole damn flywheel) will burn a big hole in your pocket. these does not incl the misc parts change when i service those items above. fyi when i change the flywheel the total bill add up to about $4k.

    if ur harley not intended to be riden long and hard u can consider it...btw i'm riding a sportster

    trust me if u do yr homework...
    Harleys are easy to maintain...
    I don't earn big bucks that's for sure...
    source parts from Ebay...
    Locally look for similar non critial parts Jap bike use....
    like fork oil seals etc...

    this way U get to know more yr ride....
    in depth knowledge of the ride through more hand ons or even simply ordering the parts through the net...

    Currently my 15th ride...

    Had own different makes of bikes but never got tired of riding Harleys.

    Am on my 5th Harley and currently own the XR1200.
    Power and road handling wise, the best i have had so far for a Harley.

    Mainteance cost depends on what you are comparing to.. would rate it as reasonable or in fact cheaper if you compare to the other premium brands like the ducati or BMWs'.

    Sportster mainteance should be close to Japs class 2 bikes in my opinion.

    i think for regular stuff harleys are cheap, the only need mineral oil and thats cheap.
    all other stuff you can get overseas these days for a song as compared to what the shops charge you!

    yup u are right mate...

    Regular maintanence like EO change are affordable...

    I do a oil filter change everytime I change my EO (it can be change on the 2nd round of eo)

    Oil Filter (matt) S$23
    HD Mineral oil S$15+ per bttl
    Transmission oil S$20+ (to be change aft every 3rd or 4th oil change; for sporty only)
    Other Reputable brands of mineral EO S$18 onwards (Motorex, Belray etc)
    Other Reputable brands of Syn EO S$18 onwards (Agip TEC 15w50)

    Gold HD Spark Plugs S$12 each I think

    Think maintenace wise is more or less there...

    Accessories & engine parts are readily available over the net like Ebay but do check that U get the correct parts.
    I got a few down the bin because of wrong parts...lol

    HD stock Belt Ebay S$300 with shipping (just change as i busted mine)
    HD stock Belt Agent S$440
    Aftermarket belt.... Think rather go for orginial...

    HD Stock Battery around $260
    aftermarket Yusua Battery $150 (not recommend though)

    I have quite a handful of experience with parts pricing as I been sourcing & doing up my ride...
    So need any help just find me lah...
    I even have extra spares laying around at home like pulleys etc...

    Cheers!!!

    Regards
    Steven

    Good question mate...

    It is not easy to tell when nid to do a belt change...
    Actually quite impossible to tell...

    Less there is sound from the belt area (screeching soound etc)
    or there is cracking on the belt surface...

    else gt 2 wait for it 2 snap... (touchwood...)
    I snap mine while dragging along Hougang Ave 2 ...lol

    BTW best to keep a spare belt like wat i do....
    Cling wrap the belt to avoid contact with the environment
    If u want security, change the current belt (source it from Ebay way way cheaper), keep current belt as spare (wash it & "lube" it with armourall leather care as told by a seasoned Harley rider...

    where do u service your ride or still looking for a mech??
    Any info u can get from the previous owner like receipts etc?

    Cheers!!!
