Harley-Davidson sued over Twin Cam 103 engine

Two Los Angeles Country customers allege Harley-Davidson’s Twin Cam 103 engine is defectively designed and can burn riders, according to an article in the Northern California Record.

Plaintiffs Michael Berke and Wolfgang Costello filed a complaint on Dec. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Harley-Davidson Motor Co.

 The two customers allege that they were injured after purchasing a motorcycle equipped with a Twin Cam 103 engine and that the “defendants did not warn that the engines are defectively designed and emit high heat, which can burn riders, and shortens the life of the engine.”

    The BIG thing wrong with the 103 is the plastic cam tensioner shoes need checking and/or replacing at 15000 mi. or they will fill the engine with metal filings at 30000

  3. This is ridiculous, they don’t know engines get hot? How about stoves,are their hands burnt?

  4. i just purchased a 2014 HD 103 street bob , this is bad news if there is any proof of this i would like to see it

  5. a coupla wannabees that should never have bought Harleys in the first place.

  6. It’s a motorcycle and he didn’t know the engine gets hot? What kind of moron is he? It’s an internal combustion engine, see the fins around the heads, that is for cooling as you ride and the air that passes the engine keeps it from overheating. There is no water cooling in a Harley 103 engine and he didn’t know that when he purchased the bike? DUH???

    The heat from the 103 Harley-Davidson engines will cause early engine failure. There is no way it can’t.
