Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
I have a 2005 dyna v-twin with less than 4,000 miles on it. Bought it used last Summer and it seemed to burn oil. this summer I noticed it ran rough and found the plugs to be carboned up. also some oil on the breather tubes that run from the air filter back to the motor. also, some smoke out the exhaust when I first start it. any ideas where to look ?
Fouling can be serious..... or not ....can just be the enricher on to long or worn/bad piston rings. Burning oil and smoking would also indicate bad rings. Could also just be bad plugs. Make sure you got the right ones in there. For $ 4.00 go get new ones at the dealer. Do a compression test - If its OK (over 90 and both within 5 lbs) .... its not the rings. Make sure you have the right amount of oil, and (believe it or not) a weak battery can cause the problems u describe, so check that out as well.
good luck.....let me know how it goes, OK ?
