It all started a few years ago, when I bought a shiny new Ultra Classic. This bike was fabulous, complete with all the bells and whistles. I really loved it! However, I soon discovered that there was a severe heat issue that made riding down right uncomfortable. This new Ultra, ran much hotter than any of the other Harleys’ that I’ve owned in the past. The heat from the furnace that I was sitting on, started to dictate when I could ride my beloved, but Stifling Hot Ultra. AKA… My Adventure machine. I just didn’t want to deal with all that annoying and uncomfortable heat. I love to ride way too much to have restrictions placed on me about what days I could ride in total comfort.
I found myself becoming obsessed with this unbearable heat problem. It soon became clear to me that if I wanted “A powerful, Dual Fan Cooled Harley Engine” I would have to Design, engineer and manufacture the device myself. Based on my many years of experience in Design, Engineering, and Manufacturing, I knew that the process to invent and manufacture a totally new Harley Engine Cooling System, would take a long time and cost a ton of money. All who know me know that when I become obsessed with something, I become relentless. This situation was no different. I was on a mission. I simply had to invent a very powerful Cooling System for my treasured Harley! I need to be able to ride with maximum comfort, whenever I want, even on hot days!
Our lead engineer who has a PHD in mechanical engineering, headed up the project. My “mission” took over three years to complete. Far longer, and way over the budget that I had estimated. Sure we made progress along the way but, it wasn’t as simple a task as I first believed it would be. There was just so much heat to deal with, and not a lot of room to mount a powerful cooling system. And just as important, the cooling system had to be very attractive and look like it was an original part of the bike. Sixteen prototypes later, we were confident that “Hammerhead Engineering” had finally solved the Harley overheating problem.
