    We've done this one and I called bullshit. The Chinese engine probably had non plated liner, like all engines used to have. Has to run in creating more debris in the first oil change.

    How do you explain the plastic and other fibres in the oil of the chinese bikes? Bullshit or propaganda?

    I watched this vid a while back. And can't help wondering if someone else did exactly the same test, would they get the same result?
    I am aware of 2 dealerships who have dumped the RE brand. One of whom had had enough of the workshop being clogged up with them...

    A statistical outlier perhaps. This is a couple of hours worth but maybe if you just watch episodes 1 & 3 you'll get the idea. It certainly doesn't do the US Harley dealer network any favours.
