And now when I start it, it'll die after 2-3 seconds... Won't run any longer than that.
Got it running and down to a shop. Looks like I'm in for a big repair bill...gotta get a new rubber engine mount at the bottom front... I've got 2 bolts missing from the inner primary (hopefully no damage inside) rear tire out of alignment... anyone know where I can find the mounts or knows who the manufacturer is of any of said parts?
I'd imagine it is normal HD rubber, not expensive cheap shit around $20 proper around 50 ... align the tire, 15 mins... primary bolts, more like cents... 2 hours work in shop a $80. $200 max.
Really hope you're right. Harley shop out here won't touch it. Said even if they had the parts they wouldn't know because they have no way to cross reference the parts... basic keyboard tappers...
Last time I replaced my friends cheap front rubber mount( the bike vibrated like crazy), I just loosened the bolts, lifted the front of the engine with a crow bar and slipped a new mount in... 15 mins.
Sounds right... They wouldn't know even though you just gotta look at it....

I've got to find it first...
I would imagine there are indy shops around you... Google?
Already brought to a shop that a buddy told me about. Said he's a great mechanic. Just trying to help find information for him. He mainly works on Harleys. Wants info for proper specs.. he said he doesn't want to guess and half ass it
Where in Michigan are you?
John at Hips can help you out, 3 hours away for you but if you're in a pinch he would have no issue doing the work.
I appreciate it. Thank you very much
Let me know if your headed this way, we'll meet up..
Have you provided him with the Service Manual?

Don't have a copy specific to the bike. I was sent a general maintenance one here from another user. But doesn't have the information I'm looking for.
Not HERE what your looking for?
The 09-11 are incomplete, only about 2/3's of the manual is there.
Its hard to believe someone wouldn't have it
I wonder if anyone has asked the new boys at BDM
