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.

 

JUst cheked, it includes 4 free servicings, brand new sportster 19K.

So have you decided to get a brand new or pre loved??

Ridin' through this world

All alone

God takes your soul

You're on your own

 

The crow flies straight

A perfect line

On the devil's path

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.

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:thumb:)

 

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

Hi, Steven

 

Notice your reply on belt change. How to tell whether its time to change it? I've got my road king only a couple of months back but not sure are the condition still tahanable!

 

Thanks!

 

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!!!
