    Sounds pretty fair, my buddy paid almost 5000.00 to take his 07 RG to a 103 I believe. That was using the stock flywheels I think to. Does that include labor? Guess i should have read it all, that does not sound bad at all.

    hobbit, are there any downsides to doing this kind of work? is machining the cases a bad idea?

    You know that a good ole 103 kit with say a andrews 37 cams will net close to 100hp and 100 tq with a tuner, all depends on what you want, I assume this is going to be done by a indy, so the moco will deny any warr issuesthat will occur, always a little downside to when you go to big in a build to, just ask towboat trash, $14,000 and 2 blown engines, don't make sense to me.

    JJDH, I think that anytime you modify a motor and push the limits of what you are starting with always creates a reliability issue. My friends bike at 12000 miles blew head gaskets, although you may never have a problem, but if you are looking for reliability I would leave it stock. Anytime you start modifying you will always have a chance for problems. My next bike will be stock motor and maybe a exhaust and air cleaner change. That is it, I want to ride and not have it in the shop. Of course this may be a result of my experience with my motor. Good Luck.

    JJDH, 1 thing to remember, if you are racing someone straight line, then you need all the power you can get, but if you are just looking to enjoy the bike and get some extra HP, be moderate and go for engine longevity. Just rode with a guy that has a 2010 with a 103" motor stock, I have a 95" with cams and heads, he could not keep up, so alot also depends on the rider, I like to push mine pretty hard.

    i run the snot out of it... more torque, over 100hp, thats my goal. the stock 103 motor isnt as good as a kit, also the stock 110 only makes 86hp on the dyno. just trying to figure the right kit.. i would just buy a jims engine or somethn, thats more dough than i want to spend

    I understand, but with case boring and all that stuff, could cost you in the long run. But it is your money you should get what makes you happy, if you are looking for total power, I would look at the Zippers Performance kits, not the Harley S.E. kits. Home
