Here at Pegasus Performance, we've been working to collect the parts to make these available, as Al at AS B used to offer. Another week or so and I should have 5 sets available, and plan to have more shortly after that. All new gaskets, price is $275+ shipping with new PCV valves or $200+ shipping sans PCV valves in case you want to buy your own used. I have a couple good sets of used PCV valves as well for $20/pair.

If you're interested, send me a message at

ross@pegasusperformance.us or send me a Facebook message at Facebook.com/pegasusperf .

Thanks!

Let me guess harley is hoarding the part number for the pcv valves, charging $75. For 2 new valves...? Its probably a $5. Part. Just like my X1's TPS p/n. It's an automotive part, but you have to find the part #, or pay HD 3x the actual cost of said automotive part...! I will find IT, like I did the TPS. It's very unfortunate for US all, and Erik, that he got in business with such a ***ty company to build such great bikes for US.

Prior to what they did, I couldn't say enough great things about this company and its history, since I was very young. I ALWAYS wanted one of their bikes, the sound, the war heroes who rode these things out of the war and made them a national symbol of my country. With no one in my family particularly being into them, or ever having one. I loved the sound of these machines, the history. Nothing I own is quiet. When I 1st saw the Buells, I was getting to that point in my life where I was going to buy me an American motorcycle. I was not going to buy a Buell. I went to Edison HD to look @ sportster. I had built my own cars since I was 15. I built some serious sbc engines, still do, its my life.

I can't even express how deep it cut me, when they shut Erik down, or how much it bugs me, they hate these bikes. I got a chance to speak with him in York, with a few other Central Jersey BRAG members who also went on that ride. I was amazed at how down to earth he was, approachable, willing to answer questions about our bikes. I will NEVER buy one of their bikes, and I will avoid buying from them anything for my Buell, as much as possible.

Mike, I don't believe the PCV to be an automotive part in this scenario, which is why I believe the price is particularly high after limited remaining supply. Vast majority of automotive PCV valves use a check valve design; these do not. They have a labyrinth in the valve body, then in the head, they have foam with an umbrella valve up top. I've never found an automotive valve with such design.

I got my front cover with the correct pcv valve. My rear one came without it, so I have 1 and I need 1. I will be dammed IF I give HD $36. For a $6. Piece of plastic. I will let yaz know how the automotive ones work. They're $3. When you're broke you do what you have to do. We'll see. In case anyone hasn't picked up on it, I'm just not a big fan of HD anymore. There was a time, but that time has passed about 10 years ago, after they stabbed their most brilliant, pioneering engineer in the back...! I was a walking HAD promotion machine in my younger days. I avoid them like the plague.

+1 here on that Mike.
Whenever possible, I attempt to get stuff from outside H-D too.

They shut down Buell and started selling tricycles around the same time.
Just made me sick.

Now they are selling 1985 Honda VT500 with "Harley" written on them.

Is it me or is the Harley electric bike very" Buellish " in many ways? Lots of XB flashback to me.

Pisses me off because, I knew when he sold off that last remaining..! I think 98, but yea I got a lump in my throat Nate, when I read it in my Battle2win magazine (That's a whole nother story my B2wins, sorry sob OBer) right away. First thing came into my head was the Tucker. I knew they were gonna shut him down I ****in' knew it...! I was SO mad when I saw the video of Erik.
