    i wonder why the knox sencer isnt where one of the spark plug holes and just make it a HEMI!!!! WITH 1 PLUG

  2. Michael Weir says:

    matt im building a chopperguys fxr dose this engine have the same mounting points or have they been relocated?????

  3. Ash Ibrahim says:

    They should bring back a kick-start.

  4. rocky walker says:

    If they cancelled the VROD. Are they gonna put something better in its place ?

  5. erbse1178 says:

    Still chain drive, still that bad rocker design that wears out after 20k miles. New engine, yes. New design, NO! Look what the competition has to offer! Why taking away the only powerful powertrain that deserves its name ? The Porsche design v-rod enigne was the best Harley could offer. I can hear the plopping of champagne corcs in the Polaris and metric cruiser headquarters.

    Refined and quiet—- Is not what I imagine when I think of an H-D

  7. abz124816 says:

    What are the projections for reliability? Should I trade my Gold wing for it?
    HP and torques specks?

  8. Still with that nylon cam chain tensioner, eh!? I think I'll keep my 1854cc Yamaha Roadliner forever. It's a no-nonsense bad-ass fast ride that hasn't given me any mechanical grief at all! In fact, a local 1% outlaw biker came over to have a look at my Roadliner when we were pumping gas. We had a good chat about engines and even he said, "Man, I wish we could ride that bike." Remember, the Japanese are our allies now, ever since oh… 1952? 🙂

    BTW: nice video!

  9. Earl Guyton says:

    This video was good in that I am now completely familair with harleys new engine design for 2017. With what I already knew as a mechanic and with detailed view of these I actually after watching the vid know plenty and could repair one without any question. Opinion? Harley would be better off with the older two cam knuckle head or pan design even today and they would last longer. Not an argument but simply a mechanical fact

  10. Dave Brown says:

    Sorry, but I will never buy a Harley. I think Gold Wings are so much nicer. :)

    Scott here from Michigan, good reporting, thank you Matt!!
    Its interesting to see The Motor Company step back to a single cam, wonder if placement of the rocker assembly in the new heads allowed them to improve on the drastic angle of the push rods that we had some issues with on the Evo's? I do thank HD for using removable lifter blocks on the 8 instead having them molded into the case!
    Matt, I also noticed that no valve lash adjustment is apparent on the outboard valves on the rocker assembly? Honda used the "forked" rocker idea for many years on some of their smaller four valve engines. They found it necessary to be able to adjust those outward valves because when two valves are operating off the same "fork" they dont wear exactly the same. Am I missing something here? Perhaps a shim bucket located in the rocker assembly?
    Cant wait to get a peek and a demo on one of these new ones – be really interesting to see/hear the exhaust note and see if some of that AWESOME Shovelhead music will fill the soul again – never could get my Twin Cams to sound like my Shovels!!
    Thanks again Matt!
    Scott
    PS – THANKS HD for some more awesome RnD!!!!

    I bought a shovelhead in 1981 then got an evo in 2005. Fuck this new shit, I think I'll start looking for another shovel or maybe a pan.

  13. Brian Seals says:

    I think the Revolution engine is superior to the Milwaukee Eight. The only problem is the appearance. It doesn't look like the traditional twin cylinder Harley engine and the V-Rod doesn't look like the traditional Harley Davidson motorcycle. Harley made a good attempt to keep the V-Rod going. It was the public that killed it. I love my 2016 V-Rod Muscle and feel no buyers remorse for getting it.

  14. Dennis Gomez says:

    I really like my Harley. I really wish the road king came with a stereo system complete with a amplifier and subs so its louder than the pipes. Oh well it is what it is!!!!!$$$. Draygomez of Whittier.

    Noisy tractors, the lot of 'em!

  18. enough said I'm sold time to trade in this 07 an get a 17

    o man the 72 and the switchback… thats not cool a really like

  20. Mike Smith says:

    Love Harley but need more HP.

  21. The "knock sensor" you pointed out in the head is in fact the compression release. Right in the middle between the spark plugs. It looks the same as earlier years. I'm sure there is a knock sensor somewhere but that ain't it.

  22. Jason Gibbs says:

    Dude the mouth noises are rediulous.. I only lasted about 1:30.. you're supposed to swallow spit just sayn
