Question about Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy Motorcycles
Its a salavge bike but it looks brand new other then the hole.
You can get new cases from Harley, same numbers and all. Or have yours repaired. New, about 600-700, repaired-100-200. Plus having the engine torn down and put back together. Be careful buying a salvage bike. Check with DMV and make sure you can register it when you are done, also check insurance rates on it. Harley also has an engine rebuild service that you send your engine in and get back a virtually new engine for one low price. Ask your local dealer.

SOURCE: tube hanging from bottem of bike
Most likely a drain tube for either battery, or most likely the drain for any spilled fuel when filling the tank. If you overfill the tank the excess fuel should be directed beneath the bike by a drain hose connected to the filler spout.

All the early Twin Cam engines had problems in the cam chest. They had some bearing problems in there. Those that went bad were fixed by Harley under warranty. But, the won't fix the problem until it goes bad. I've heard that Harley extended the warranty to 50,000 miles on this problem only. I do not know if this absolutely correct information nor do I know if it is a "transferrable" warranty. Most of the time, Harley's warranty is transferrable. You can call Harley with the VIN number of the bike and they will tell you all warranty work done on the bike.

I haven't heard of this and certainly it should be covered under warranty in my opinion if it's what they are saying it is, porosity of the aluminum in the case. I do know that the aluminum in ALL motorcycles back in the 60's was very porous. But, they've come a long way where aluminum castings are concerned. Now in this particular bike, there may be a defective case. In this case, it's clearly a case of defective materials and should be covered in my opinion but then I'm not the dealer nor Harley-Davidson. I'd come closer to believing that there is an error in the machining of the case rather than porosity of the case. An aluminum case being too porous is almost unheard of these days but like I said, this just may be a defective case.

The check ball in the oil pump is the problem. It either gets dirt on it, or just doesn't mate up properly with its seat. This allows the engine to "sump", meaning because the crankcase is lower than the oil tank, the oul flows from the tank into the crankcases. I doubt there is a drain plug at the bottom of your engine cases, so the only way to get the oil out of the crankcase is to place a pan under the vent and run the bike. Keep an eye on the oil level in the tank, but don't add a lot if it gets low. Some oil will be circulated back the tank by the oil pump. The simple fix to this problem is to place a clamp on the oil feed line to the pump if you're gonna let the bike sit for awhile. This will not allow the oil to flow from the tank. Replacing the pump again, or reseating the ball may or may not solve your problem. My '91 bagger has the same problem. I just clamp the feed line when I store it for the winter and have no sumping problem when I fire it up in the spring. just remember to remove the clamp before starting the bike!
