How old does a HD get before the MoCo calls it obsolete and no longer has available parts?
Just hope your cruise control doesn't go out. MoCo hasn't had them for a couple years now on bikes 2006 and down.Haven't had any trouble with my dealer yet, new starter clutch two years ago (bike was 10 years old). But replacing stock chrome items, has to be ordered out. I forgot the term but its a fancy way of saying its too old for the MoCo to stock parts anymore.
GotGold, don't think bike will run with the throttle position sensor disconnected. Do you mean the switch on the throttle cable that shuts off the cruise when you force the throttle off?It has and I fixed it. Throttle position sensor, disconnected it, problem solved.
Working on them is half the fun! I wouldn't trust anyone else near my bikes with a wrench, anyway. My FLH is a '77 and it is NOT obsolete. The dealer is obsolete!So, mine is 43yrs old, and still funning on the original bore and pistons! Good thing I am a wrench that was riding back then and can work on them, or I would really be screwed!
