Post 2019 Fatboy S... 
 
Ok...Went out and degraded my ride to one of these new Fatboys....
Had a little sweet spot on them from release...Few things I didnt like about them I had changed...
 44091829_696986657346299_3040446171047788544_n
In the swap over deal I wanted all of that ugly Sardine tin shit removed and chrome in stead. So got the full chrome kit.
Second I love the Power the 114 produced. I took a 114 Stage 2 for a test ride and I just loved the power produced with a bolt in Cam Pack..
So in went a S&S 475 Power cam with a base map of course on delivery...
THen went on with a set of 12inch Highballs....They werent on for long. Didnt like the look. Comfy as hell...But just didnt suite the Fat.
Back in and got a set of Mid Westerns fitted...Near Perfect for the style of bike. And just about perfect for comfort...2inch Risers will fix that...

How does it ride...
This new mono shock system if absolutely fantastic....Kills the Streetglide for smoothness over the rough shit. Plenty of rear travel...
Although the front is a little harsh....Liveable for sure.
Corners.....No. It sucks with the ''no clearance issue''. But holds a line not bad for a Softail. Just no lean angle on it.
Solid front wheel.....Its a shit. Sitting behind a semi the other day I thought I had a flat rear tyre it was blowing me around that much..
Bordering on dangerous....Next mod.
Delux front fender and a True Fit mega spoke wheel 21inch. That should fix up the clearance a little and be rid of that buffering issure..
fatside
A before look
fatluxsde
A bit of tinkering with photo Chop...I do like...Still the thinking on different wheels....I love the Delux with the 21inch mega spoke look..
Thought on CVO Breakout wheels also....Will have to chop some wheels on and see what I think....

But over all...This thing is a beast to ride....Getting a Dyno after the run in Period and will post up some Results.
The Dealer said he done the same build and pumped out 116hp...Forgot the Torque.
These pipes will rob it of some ponies....But boy...Screww that Throttle on, and she gets up and rocks...

I'm hearing you on the trade price on CVO's mine was only 2.5 years old, the trade/swap price was hurtful.

Are you going to do any head work on the Fatboy? I've been talking to Mark about porting and polishing the heads on my CVO. They have someone who is doing their M8 heads for them.

I like that, the spoke front wheel dont look out of place either. They might be
a bit slower through the mountains but you get used to the slower riding style
pretty quick.

Maybe play around with a lighter oil in the front end to soften it up a bit, they
aint good cornerers anyway so even a 5 weight would work.

Very nice Robo!. I like the idea of the 114 engine. When they introduced the M8's I couldn't (and still dont) understand why they only went from 103 to 107. 4 cubes. All other engine changes have been bigger. Typically 7 or 8 cubes...Evo 1340 to Twinkie 88 to 96 to 103.
Also competing with Indians 111 (is it?), why not go big?
I dunno. Been at sea for 10 dry days, had a couple of beers now I'm talking Swahili!
Like then bike anyway Robo.

Rob here .. too friggen lazy to log Marg out  

Anyway's ... my mechanic was telling me a story this morning about the M8's ..
He's never worked on one as yet but has been keeping up to date, somehow.
According to my scrambled memory he said the breathing of the M8 motor (not air breather) has been modified to comply with Aussie bullshit which restricts the flow of oil through the motor .. apparently this is the cause of problems with the Aussie M8's.
He said the next edition of Iron Horse Magazine has an article about it, some bloke has come up with a remedy to fix the problem .. might be well worth getting a copy

Rob, a while back i saw in a link somewhere, they were drilling and adding a breather in behind the primary near between front & rear cylinders, letting air get in to let oil move around and not have an Airlock in sump.

Been reading a fair bit meself on the M8s..
I aint heard of to many failures on the smaller motors only the Touring motors...
I know a few lads at wok have them...One mate who I ride with every now and then has had 2 M8s to date.
Every day work and commute bikes...Rides everywhere and clocks up some Kms..
No issues with the 107. But then another lout who has a bucket worth of work done to his 107 SG has had a few issues...
Mostly oil spewing via the Airfilter....Fixed and no problems since...15000kms since.
And he rides like he stole the bastard. Drags it down Benaraby race way and all.

Ive seen him smoke it up cold as a nuns love tunnel in the car park at work one night...

Like this lout rides it rough.....Loves em.

Fuck knows...We always hear the negatives about new shit. Never the positives.
I got 2 years worry free atleast. If she fails me once its on first and final. Second time its gone.
