blues... No issues with the '07 Road King here after 20 months, and I ride it hard. Web sites are a magnet for owners to report problems or vent. It happens at the web sites for all kinds of makes/models. This is understandable but it is hardly representative.

Enjoy your great bike. No need to second guess or wonder if something is going to happen. I've owned numerous H-D's over the years with zero issues.

Good to have you here!

no more than any other year Blues 821. I got an 07 Ultra. Lotta changes that year so I got 5 years of waruntee and they just replaced an 02 sensor on their tab. If we coulda shoulda blame anybody for the problems on 07's and later it would probably be the EPA

well fella's i'm not haveing any problems with my 07. in fact i'd say it runs pretty damn good .. just that this is my first harley .my wife thought it was time that i had my dream bike . a road king classic . since at 42 yrs i had to under go a triple by-pass .damn family history . so after waiting 20yr to get the bike ive always wanted ,i learn of the crankshaft issue, so it really concened me .. most of the other forums seem to maybe blow things up a bit so after hanging around here for awhile just reading and watching .i didnt seem to find much of that going on here. so i thought id ask .. as far as my bike goes its got 4500 or so on it now .seems to run smooth and has good oil pressure so maybe i got a good one ..
