Restore The Rumble And Look Of Your Harley Engine.

Bringing your Harley-Davidson engine back to life, mechanically and cosmetically is a service offered by Harley-Davidson. Evolution® 1340 and Twin Cam 88, 95, 96, and 103 CI engines can be remanufactured to factory specifications by Harley team of trained technicians. No matter what the color or finish configuration of your motor, they will refresh the engine in the cosmetic style you select. All 1999-06 Twin Cam Engines will be upgraded with Screamin’ Eagle Hydraulic Cam Chain Tensioner and Oil Pump Kit (except ‘06 Dyna models). Remanufacturing also is now available for all 1999-later engines with a Screamin’ Eagle Street Legal Big Bore Stage I EFI Kit.

How does the H-D Remanufacture Program work? You bring your bike (or engine itself) to an authorized Harley-Davidson dealership to remove the engine, ship it to the Harley-Davidson remanufacturing facility doing the job (average time is 2 weeks), then the dealer will reinstall your motor now qualifying for a new 12-month limited warranty. You have the option to finance the remanufacturing of your engine with H-D Financial Services.

How Harley Does It, Step By Step. 1- Your H-D® dealer removes your engine, packs it in a specially designed container, and ships it to the authorized Reman Facility. 2- Engine components that can be cleaned and remanufactured to original specifications are saved; others are discarded. 3- Reusable parts are cleaned and paint is removed. After inspection, parts are powder- coated to original factory standards. 4- Parts are machined, bored, and honed to exact tolerances. Only components that meet H-D strict standards make it this far. 5- All components are meticulously reassembled and upgraded to meet the latest specifications while retaining its stock configuration. 6- Testing and finishing. after passing a battery of tests, your engine is awarded a one- year, Unlimited Mileage Factory Warranty. Back in the saddle: approximately two weeks after its journey began, your V-twin is returned to your dealer for reinstallation with a new lease on life and its original VIN.

    Thanks for posting this. My road king has 120k on the motor now and this seems like a way to keep it going.

    Be well

    FYI Reman is no longer done at the Capital Drive facility. The engines are being Remanufactured at a very familiar address in Viola, Wisconsin. You got it, outsourced to S&S. I personally have no problem with that. But, I do worry that since S&S is doing the Reman it will leave them on the hook for warranty issues. This could be a good thing, it could also lead to a big company killing a small one. Good luck.

    Remanufacture done by S&S? Are you certain? Harley sued S&S a few years back…and lost.

    Depending on what is wrong with your engine. It may be cheaper to contact St. Paul and just buy a new engine.

    “Viola, WI 54664”

    That says it. An address that will fluff your pillow up at night. 🙂

    I agree with “just my opinion”. The cost of the reman is way to high compared to a new engine. Granted you don’t get the throttle body and a few other items on the new engine, but it is still too high. Better bet is to either get a larger new engine from HD for an extra grand or so (110″) or have your local shop do a rebuild with high quality and performance parts.

    One thing to consider when looking at buying a “new crate engine” vs reman is the Warranty issue. The Reman when R & R is done at the Dealership carries a 1 year warranty. The new engine has a 90 day P & A Warranty. You also have the option, if you want to save money to R & R the engine yourself saving the labor. However, the Warranty isn’t part of the package this way. If its installed by the Dealer, HD stands behind the Dealer’s installation work. If you do it yourself or have an Indy do the labor, well that’s really not Harley’s to stand behind. Well, that’s the way its looked at, right or wrong. BTW, I’ve sent several to Viola since the changeover, they were a little slow at first. But they now have a good hold on the process and the turnaround has been within the two week timeframe as of late. And, on another positive note, quality control is at least as good if not better than it was before. HD needed to save some money, S&S needed the work. Win, win, as far as I can tell so far.

    The biggest advantage to the reman is that you retain your original case numbers that still match your stock frame. If you buy a new crate motor those numbers will not match.

    I’ve done a few of these, including my Dad’s TC that had 86,000 miles on it when we sent it for reman and it’s a pretty good deal. The motor is literally brand new when you get it back. It didn’t take more than about 3 weeks to get it back either.

    The lawsuit you are referring to was settled and the two companies reached an amicable agreement. No one “lost” as in receiving a judgement.
