    So, warranty replacement of the engine. Got it back on Oct 6, combination of work, weather, other obligations, only got 300 miles on the new engine, but on Saturday was headed back from Pinckney, same exact symptoms, so its at Motor City HD waiting for resolution from the moco.
    Wow, that sucks. I had not heard of the problems....Hope they can make it right for you!

    Sucks happening on a brand new bike. Every time you hear a noise you'd think it was locking up again.

    Kosher, did you get your bike back? What is the cause of your issues? Would you purchase another M8?

    The Regional Technical Lead inspected my bike on Thursday. I got a call from him while he was still at Motor City HD late Thursday morning. He said the replacement engine didn't have the most current oil pump, and also its possible it wasn't torqued correctly at the factory. He said they are replacing the engine and oil pan (again), and the replacement engine would be built with the supervision of a manager. For my trouble, they will pay for my 10K service when it comes up (about $400), and give me a $500 gift card at the dealer.

    I called today to enquire about some options for spending the $500, he said they already had the new engine. I find it hard to believe they built the thing essentially in a day and had it delivered the next day, but ok. Should be done early next week.
