    Heads up on potential Dyantek Dyna3000 ('90-'07) availability issue

    I can only report on what I know and have learned, so there very well may be more to the following than I am aware of, but from what I've found over the last couple of days, the Dyna3000 may become a hard to obtain item, at least in the near future, if not more permanently. I ordered a...

    water passage joints in heads

    While removing the heads from my '85 max motor, I ended up breaking the crossover joint/sleeve whatever it's called. The little tabs that you're supposed to pull on to remove it broke off very easily. Actually kinda crumbled. It looks like new ones are about $15/ea from the stealership...
