    However it was worth it. It did show at least on some you can force it to happen.
    Thanks for Sharing This Look Forward to seeing the Outcome as I truly loved the Test Rides on the M8 Engine .. But while hardly reach the 5K RPM Mark have been known to wind it up into 4,200-4,500 Range now and Then .. Most Times Shift around 2,800-3,200 on the CDH, a bit lower on the Dyna .. Red Lines are very close on the M8 and Thunderstroke 111 ..

    Real world the only time it hits 4000 rpm's is just having fun on an entrance ramp to highway. 3500 rpms in 6th = major fines any where you you go. But IMO the transfer should be found and repaired . I am sure it will be.

    You are correct Smitty. I was on a road king special, wrapped it up to 3760 rpm, that pulled right out 100 mph. 4000 RPM is not going to be real common outside of first or second gear.

    M8 is so quick in low gears you best be shifting already when you hit 4,000 or by time you hit the next gear it will hit the rev limiter.

    Picked mine up today. Deal agrees it was migrated at the rate I said about 1 3/4 maybe 2 OZ's in 1350 miles when bike is ran in the 4000-5000 RPM range.
    This is what they did:
    Replaced O ring Crank/vehicle SPE 11289A
    Replaced Top cover gasket Transmis 25700453
    Of course new O ring for drain plug.
    I know they have a list of things to check while in there.
    It took 1350 miles for mile to transfer 1 and 3/4 to about 2 OZ's.
    We shall see how it goes.

    Interesting for sure. Are you gonna continue your testing with the higher rpm's?
    My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

    Update, dealer did a service check on mine. removed transmission cover checked gasket blew out passages. 4,500 miles sense then and no migration . I have been opening the primary to check it much more accurate way.
