Piston going?
« on: April 27, 2021, 10:32:41 PM »
So i told my mechanic about the smoke coming out of the exhaust and he said itís the piston starting to go especially that it smells like oil. Is it worth replacing the piston and ring set?? Iím sure itís gonna cost a pretty penny to fix since the whole engine needs to come apart

Depends on how much ya like the bike, and how much replacing it with something you'd like would cost along with the understanding that a newer bike would be less hassle in general until it ages out too.
Personally I'd at least explore it a bit since the HD really is kind of a special model that ain't made anymore.
