Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles
First, your Motorcycle questions may be answered better in the Motorcycle section of Fixya where Specialists will see your questions. You are currently listed in the Cars and Trucks section.
You could have bad Valve stem seals which would allow the oil to be drawn into the cylinders and not have any ring problem. I suspect a weak valve spring or bad hydraulic lifter if so equipped. With an overhead valve engine, the valve springs AND the valve stem seals can be changed by pressurizing an individual cylinder to hold the valves in place, removing the valve train and compressing the valve stem springs with proper tools. I am not familiar about your engine construction, sometimes the lifters can be changed at the same time if the heads are designed to allow this. Basically you are working on the top side of the motor without needing to remove the heads. The only thing you will not be able to do is LAP the valves.
A good working air compressor and an adapter for the sparkplug hole will be needed.
