Seen the new Harleys?

A friend bought one of the 2020 Harleys' and they look great. They got rid of the Walt Disney twin cam system and went back to the single cam. They also redesigned the look of the valve covers, they look like a cross between the old Knuckle head and the new Indians. They are both water and air cooled, friend says he can lay his hand on the back valve cover after an hour and it is warm to the touch....The only problem is the price, 24k......ridiculous, you can buy 2 nice used automobiles for that price or 6
or 7 Road stars with 20k miles on them which are just as nice.........

It's just in the head, most of the coolant is concentrated around the exhaust valve. It's a nice design as it doesn't go through the head gasket, that decreases the chances of failure.

Of course, the Kaws did not have failures..They also put the lifters right under the rocker arms om top of the valves..Pretty sweet..
