Yes they are able to replace but it is going to cost you alot of money to have it fixed. What would should do is buy engine cleaner you put it into the oil just add it in and let it run for 5 min or 8 what ever is recomended then drain the oil and put new in with an oil filter.

What would cause a lifter to collapse on a 2010 stratonliner deluxe with 600 miles on it? There is a tapping sound in the motor that was diagnosed as a collapsed lifter. What would cause this problem with...

Sounds like a defective lifter.
Should still be Under warranty. Take it back let them fix it.

Checking around I found this tidbit:

"turned out that I screwed up and overfilled the bike with oil, which apparently got aerated and managed to form an air bubble in one hydraulic lifter Tappety tap. Removing a half quart of oil or so made the problem go away."

Also read where there was a recall on these concerning the lifters.
Supports my theory it is possibly a defective part.

Since you only have 600 miles on the bike. This is the time to take it back to have the break in oil replaced. Have them check it.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

No compression in #5 cylinder V6 SOHC?

Sounds like a blown head gasket,bad valves or bad rings.If this is the only cylinder affected then the head gasket is more than likely the problem.

Lifter making noise

depends, how long between oil changes, how many miles, try and engine flush, sometimes debrise adn sludge will cause a lifter to stick and not move freely causing the tapping noise you hear, if this doesn't fix or quiet the problem it may be to far gone, but if you really love the car get a tear down manual and go to work....put aside a weekend and about 500 dollars it'll be a job
