Angry M8 issues,

new to the forum but I have a 2018 SGS with stage III. Had the bike out for about a 40 mile ride, lost all power and when checked dipstick it barely showed (it was full prior to ride) took it to Harley and they now say its a crank case position sensor but no one can or will answer what happened to the oil or where it went. I called today and they won't go any further into the engine to see if any other damage, even though under warranty. What should I do.

I thought the sumping issue was from the transmission to the primary, and not the engine oil?

Do you have a reputable dealer near by?

I would ride it like I stole it until something gives and let them fix it at their cost.

Nice first post by the way

Piston oilers loose on some causes the issue

Wait for the dealer to call you when the bike is ready, go get it, and ride it...

Bud, Welcome to the forum. You are going to get a lot farther and get way better answers and treatment if you go to the new member section and introduce yourself. You'll be taken more seriously if you join and stay, rather than one and done. Just sayin...
