    Also, any noob to old Harleys should watch this video, makes a lot of sense and confirms my thoughts - https://www.harley-davidson.com/stor...-12-9986102--1

    Also, does the H-D lube have bar and shield logos floating around in it?

    Sorry Hector - This is the other one, it's long but worth a look - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yc7G0m8cB-0

    Not seen any logos in the lube, but I'll go and check later - yeah right!

    Here's what Simon is referring to - I just ordered one - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stator-Pl...4AAOSwBbJbo5D2

    There are others available from JP Cycles etc - Search Big Twin stator plug retainer.
