Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic
01 roadking classic with a pumped up motor just changed oil to screaming eagle synthetic is it the cause????
The first thing I would do is change the oil and clean the screen. I would use a lighter oil for the winter (10w40) if your bike uses it. Running some "seafoam" in the tank wouldn't hurt and making sure your gas is the proper octane
cam chain would make more of a slapping noise so it may be a sticky lifter. While I don't use SeaFoam in my "oil" the directions states that you can use for about 100 miles prior to an oil change to clean out carbon and gum inside the engine. That would be a personal call so you'll have to decide if you want to do that. I use Seafoam in the gas...just never have put it in the oil yet. Also...some use Marvel Mystery Oil and claim it helps clear up sticky lifters. If you use either product be sure to follow the directions carefully.
