Harley-Davidson — harley-davidson's lack of info to buyers
My compliant is that I have a 05 fat boy and it uses oil. I called harley-davidson customer service and they advised me that it was normal and within specs that new harley's use one quart of oil every 1500 miles. I feel harley-davidson should tell the customer that their new bike more than likely will be using oil. I sure would not buy a new vehicle if I know it will be using oil!!! Nothing is stated in owners manual about oil consumption and they recommend oil change at every 5,000 miles, my question to harley-davidson is why change the oil when I have to keep adding new oil every 1500 miles? If the general public was made aware of this issue, not many new harley's would be sold.
