A good while ago now, my wife
and I took off on a road trip, riding hundreds of miles. We stopped in a
small town and pulled up to a restaurant to get a bite to eat. In front
a number of Harley's were parked and, always friendly, we stopped and
talked a bit with several of the other bikers before going inside. I'm
sure it was obvious that we weren't from around these parts, and I
probably said we were from Cleveland. I don't really remember what was
said - just small talk, and friendly, though. Regardless, I locked up my
bike as I always do, a Harley 2003 FL Electra Glide Centennial Edition
that I've put a lot into, and we went inside to eat.
Leaving the restaurant I nodded to those I'd talked with, and we headed
off down the road. After riding a short while I felt that something
wasn't quite right with the engine. It was acting funny, starting to
sound funny, and it felt like it was heating up, running hot. I started
to pull over to check it, and just then it made a lot of noise and
completely froze up. It was dead. Much
later, back in Cleveland and getting the engine torn down, what was
found was a filtered cigarette butt in the engine. The oil pump was
fouled and ruined, starving my engine for oil, the reason the engine
locked up. That was the cause and I didn't know it until tear down. The
only time this could have happened was when we were in the restaurant -
someone maliciously put a cigarette butt in my oil. They simply popped
the cap and dropped it in. One butt - that's all it took.
There was a lot of damage. I
was heart broken, and then I was angry. It cost me a lot, but aside from
the money it cost me prime riding time, as well - it took a over a month to fix
the engine and more to replace some special aftermarket engine parts I'd
put on, as it is far from a stock engine.
I searched high and low for a locking oil cap, and none existed
anywhere. I swore I'd not leave my bike and oil cap unprotected again. I
couldn't find anything. As I searched I talked to a lot of people; other
riders, Harley dealers, and others. I found I wasn't alone in having
garbage put into the oil - cigarette butts, screws, dirt, gravel, etc.
If I couldn't buy a locking oil cap, I decided I'd make one - and also
make quality locking caps available to fellow riders. The only parts
that go on my bike have to be very high quality. That was the original
idea, and K&B Enterprizes, LLC, was formed. Now all of our efforts are
focused on keeping up with demand for the
GUARDIAN Oil Protector™.
Anyway, that's the story. (Video right below)
